It's not nice to make fun of retards Palin-Americans, Subby. And they're still not getting a click because that blog sucks.

It's amazing how "America rejected the GOP in favor of the Democrats" is never a reason from these morons.

Unsurprisingly, his analysis is just about as spot-on as his original prediction.
Voter fraud (by blacks of course), RINO, etc.

It's awesome.

His conclusion is "I don't know"

and the very next sentence is "and no one else knows"

erm, no - we do actually know. but thanks.

FTFA: "based primarily on two observations from the polls: Rasmussen's Republican Party self-identification was the highest in eight0 years at least - since 2004 in fact, when Republican turnout ended Kerry's presidential hopes; and Republican enthusiasm was also higher than it had been in years, and in fact much higher than in 2008, while Democrat enthusiasm was lower."

Note to statistitard blogger: subjectives may not be the most reliable metric when all the objectives are pointing the other way.

That Tatler post, and the reasoning behind it from my other post, "Keep Calm and Finish Him," was based primarily on two observations from the polls: Rasmussen

'I don't know! *conjectures wildly*'

Well, have you tried finding out? Performed any emperical research? No? That's not your strong point, is it?

Because they've been told by conservative media this whole time that they are Real America and the Silent Majority and they just can't believe that they aren't either of those things, because they have never been told any differently.

That might make them see that their world view is based upon lies and horseshiat.

So clearly, the answer is to continue to ignore reality.

Here's a thought - why doesn't the Republican party go back to being an electable political movement instead of a hate group?

It's tough to get to that point when you begin with the default argument That candidates only fail because they are insufficiently conservative.

Seeing that the Christ they apparently believe in endorses abandoning the sick and destitute, concentrating wealth, formenting hatred, and treating women like things instead of people... of course Obama is the "Anti-Christ".

Lately, I've heard a lot of "OK, settle down, libs...it's not cool to gloat."

As long as idiots like this keep putting out weak-ass shiat like this, I intend to keep piling it on.

Case in point: Some people suggested explicitly that it might have been evangelical turnout, but according to Andrew McCarthy, the exit polls didn't actually reflect that

Oh, NOW you believe the polls!? Are you sure you don't want to "unskew" that, Skippy? Maybe ask Rove or Morris what they think about it? Before you decide on what that exit poll means, perhaps you should wait until after Ann Coulter, Michelle Malkin and Laura Ingraham discuss it on the next Hannity!?

All I ask for as a voter is a fair wage, some acceptable environmental protections, a social safety net, and an ivory throne carved from the bones of my enemies.

I think it is much easier to attack the other side for your shortcomings than it is to look in the goddamn mirror. Paul Ryan said the same thing this morning--and frankly--it's hard to believe. Romney lost for a ton of reasons--he was never ahead in any real polls to begin with, and all the reasons he lost were his and the party's fault.

If Republicans cannot moderate--they may be alienating enough groups (gays, immigrants, women, the poor) that a win is impossible--specifically with the growth of these particular groups and their influence over likely voters. We saw Romney's biggest bumps Weeners election when he did moderate--many people were looking for a viable alternative to Obama--but then he withdrew those moderate views--got shellacked in the next two debates--and that was that.

This has been an enlightening year. I have never read so many people's blogs, news comments, and statements that prove they are allergic to facts. "The world doesn't conform to my lies, so there is no way I can understand it!" I'm starting to understand how some people can have enough rage to murder.
 
2012-11-13 01:13:24 PM
I'm sure it had nothing to do with various people in the party pissing off (in no particular order):

Women
People with college degrees
Gays
Moderates
Lower income households
Union members
Anyone under 25
ANYONE associated with the auto industry

Plus all the regulars (read: minorities) the GOP regularly gives up for dead....


nope, must have been fraud.

My guess is someone told the GOP about the the "Appeal to Authority" fallacy and they mistook it to mean that knowledgeable experts are always incorrect, therefore, their experts are right.

Dear GOP,

I am a Republican.

I am a Christian.

I did not vote for Mitt Romney.

The problem was not that Mitt Romney wasn't conservative enough. The problem was not that I want free stuff (I am gainfully employed, own a house, and am about to open my own business). The problem was not that I failed to identify with my "Christian values," (whatever that might seem to mean in the eyes of the GOP).

No, the problem was that I have a really, really good long term memory.

You see, I remember what this country was like longer than a few weeks ago. I remember that the Bush neo-cons convinced us all we needed to go to war in Iraq, only that turned out to be a snipe hunt for something that clearly wasn't there. I remember that our economy was in a complete shambles and threatening to pull the entire world into a global economic depression, due to the policies of Bush's economic advisers. I remember that gas prices were up, though not at the fault of the President. (And I remember that the GOP spent the entire summer trying to blame high gas prices on the current President.) I remember Mitch McConnell saying they were going to do everything in their power to make sure President Obama was a one term President, and then proceeded to sabotage just about every single piece of legislation that could have helped the country. I watched as House Republicans were willing to watch the country burn on a pyre of fiscal irresponsibility instead of working with Democrats to make a deal. I watched the GOP throw out things that they formally were in favor of simply because President Obama decided that it was a good idea, and then claim that Obama "had no ideas" and was "failing to lead." I watched as the GOP went out of their way to alienate women, minorities, poor people and the middle class, and then turned around and expected those groups to vote for them.

In short, the Republican Party is no longer the Republican Party of Reagan or Eisenhower. It is not the party I joined 25 years ago.

In short -- the GOP has abandoned its moderate base in favor of right wing lunacy, and this is not anything that people want in power.

Sincerely,
Dog Welder
P.S. Fark you, GOP
