Fart_Machine: But they nailed that old white wealthy Christian male demographic down cold.


Dr Dreidel: The GOP won the demographics that "mattered", right? They won the older crowd, the richer crowd, the whiter crowd, and the manlier crowd. They didn't win among "takers", and didn't want to. They didn't win among nonwhite religious conservatives, and didn't try to. They didn't win among the median-wage crowd, and didn't think they needed to.


What's so wrong about that? Haven't you heard of the aphorism "What's good for GM is good for America?"

Well, what's good the for the Republican base is what's good for America, because the Republican base IS America. Real America. The America that beat the British Empire, won two World Wars, and won the Cold War.

The American Left caused America to lose the Vietnam War, would have surrendered to the Communists, and now wants to surrender to the Islamofascists.

Don't be fooled by liberal propaganda. Take the "rape baby" non-controversy. Instead of screaming about a women's non-existent right to abortion on demand, why aren't we doing more to prevent rape babies in the first place? If abstinence education were taught to every schoolkid, then more sluts would have the moral fiber to Just Say No To Rape - voila, problem solved. But of course that would undermine the trillion dollar abortion industry, who are the main contributors to the feminazis behind the liberal family-destroying agenda.

I do concede that maybe the GOP could be doing a better job of packaging our message. Instead of stating "knocked-up sluts need to keep their rape babies - the power of Christ compels you", maybe we should be saying "We're sorry about the bad choices you've made that led to this. But look on the bright side - Jesus has given you an unconsensual, unanticipated gift of human life." I mean, you don't technically consent to a surprise birthday party, do you? That would spoil the surprise. But even though you didn't approve of it or expect it, it's still a gift. Who would want to abort their own surprise birthday party?

SilentStrider: Knowing them, they'll put the whole "talking about rape" thing in the "what worked" column.


The problem was we didn't talk about it enough. What we need for 2016 is more rape.

sprawl15: The reason Obama lost was that he just kind of laid there and frowned through it rather than addressing the nonsense.


If a sewer main exploded all over you, you'd have no choice but to stand their dumbfounded while you were covered in gallons of sh*t, too.

Graffito: I think the whole slut-shaming thing was working for them. They should continue to focus on that for the next election.


This. They lost focus and went off message. Some Republicans were calling them sluts and others were saying that if they enjoyed rape it wasn't legitimate and they couldn't get pregnant. Others claiming that some women "rape easy" and others that rape-babies are God's will and a gift.

All over the map. They need to be clear and on message - always.

1. women are sluts
2. rape is good
3. abortion is always murder

Take ownership of the issues or the issues will own you. The equivocated too much and that is why they lost.

What worked: persuading some people to vote for them.
What didn't: persuading enough people to vote for them.

Obvious approaches:
1) Changing who votes, by
1.1) More effective get-out-the-vote targeting of GOP-likely voters
1.2) Voter supression of Democratic-likely voters (which is illegal if proven, so don't get caught)
2) Become more effective at persuading people of the GOP message
3) Change the GOP message to one enough people can be persuaded to accept

dickfreckle: Counter_Intelligent: Us smartphone FARKers aren't offended by text. It's pictures that are too wide to fit onscreen that tick us off. It ruins the entire page.

I'm particularly pissed at long words, like when someone says "Bahahahaha" except longer than that. Totally farks up the entire thread when mobile.

So guys, stop doing that.


I laugh at people trying to view complicate web pages on a mobile platform. In fact, I go something like this: Buhahahahahahahaahahhahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha .

I think taking a single quote of your opponent blatantly out of context then building an entire night of your convention around that deception is a really, really good idea that no one will ever see through.

What didn't work: banking on there being enough white Christian senior citizens to sway the election for you. Your platform is the tech equivalent of a dial-up modem.

What worked. - You peddled somebody who could form a sentence, looked good in a suit and seemed like a normal, educated man.

What didn't - You peddled a guy who carries water for the people who have, in collusion with banks, the legislature and enough lobbyists to sink a barge, gutted the economy, pronounced corporations as gods who live above the law, bashed gay people, told women to get back in the kitchen and generally told everybody who isn't already rich as Roosevelt they are moochers, whiners, welfare queens and are probably sitting on their ass with a bag of Doritos, waiting for a handout.

Other than that, it was a brilliant campaign.

Oh, and after hundreds of years of black Americans only now emerging from the status of slave class, if you actually thought they were gonna vote for some ivy league, lily white twat who's had a hand in dismantling companies for profit and looks like every lantern jawed prat who looked down their nose at them in a job interview, you're not only out of touch, you're clinically deluded.
