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.
SilentStrider: Knowing them, they'll put the whole "talking about rape" thing in the "what worked" column.
sprawl15: The reason Obama lost was that he just kind of laid there and frowned through it rather than addressing the nonsense.
Parthenogenetic: 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?
Graffito: I think the whole slut-shaming thing was working for them. They should continue to focus on that for the next election.
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.
