ferretman: McAuliffe's win only happened because an Obama bundler provided money to the Libertarian candidate, DNC out spent the RNC ~$34 million to $14 million


Money is speech.  You guys fought for it, now you need to own it.  The Koch bros would not be pleased to hear you disparaging the idea that unlimited anonymous campaign money is somehow un-American.  As a fascist post whore, you really should be jumping for joy that the assertion money correlates to votes has been affirmed.

As a personal aside, you're doing really badly at this.  Fark used to enjoy a much higher caliber of paid corporate troll.  If you want your shill money, you'll need to choose a different tack in future threads.

ferretman: If anything, the razor thin win is an undeniable mandate from the people to push forward the entire Democratic Party platform with absolute urgency.


As the GOP has explained to us over and over again (seriously, where the f*ck have you been?) when a politician wins, regardless of the margins, it constitutes an unassailable mandate from the people backing your platform.  This is not debatable, it's been your policy for over a decade now.

Elections have consequences.  Stop your blubbering and celebrate all the things that the GOP holds dear and true about both the process and the outcome.

You're forgetting the Law of Elections:

If a Democrat wins it was only due to a foul Soros-funded, ACORN-fueled, Satan-endorsed, Lamestream-Media-cheerled, conclave of voter intimidation, voter fraud and unmitigated chicanery by the union thugs controlling courthouses in the name of mandatory abortions, forced polygamous homosexual marriage and the immediate rewriting of the national anthem to begin with the words "Soviet Socialism Love We, By Mao and Hitler's Gay Sex Fight," and said "winner" should be met with nothing but scorn, impeachment proceedings and people who think Nestea is a clothing designer and the Republican candidate -- even though robbed of a rightful office -- was clearly not worthy of being called "conservative" and most certainly swears fealty to a photo of Ho Chi Minh giving Josef Stalin an Albanian Trolley Stop.

If a Republican wins, even if by a single vote, it is an undeniable mandate anointed by the Lord.

ferretman: McAuliffe's win only happened because an Obama bundler provided money to the Libertarian candidate, DNC out spent the RNC ~$34 million to $14 million and it was still a razor thin victory. Dems/libs originally stated that McAuliffe would win in a landslide. No comments about that from MSM....


spin, spin, spin!

you still lost an election you should have won easily. terry mcauliffe is an appalling man who is despised by democrats and republicans alike. had you nominated a rational human being instead of an insane teabagger who was more interested in banning blowjobs than creating actual jobs, you would have won.

but, no - just as you did in missouri and indiana last year and in nevada and delaware before (and, hell, the presidential contest last year), you lost a seat you should have easily won because your party is too extreme.

take a lesson from christie's easy victory in democratic new jersey. if you are to become a national party once again, you will have to return to the center.

Actually, I read that and the comments, and it came off as a bunch of naval-gazing (like here at fark!).  I thought this was a much more accurate response to Sarvis siphoning votes away from Cooch:

ferretman: The point I was trying to make regarding the extremely close election in Virginia was that McAuliffe was supposed to crush Cuccinelli. With the DNC outspending the RNC by $20 million dollars, Bill & Hillary campaigning for him and President Obama campaigning for him....he barely won....against a guy no Republican cared for.

If anything, the razor thin win is a reflection on the poor performance of Obama and fellow Democrats.


Or a reflection of a fantastic performance by Democrats in winning the governorship in farking Virginia.

And besides that, since when is a 3% margin of victory "razor thin" ? That is such a bullshiat attempt at spin it's amazing.

Lost an election in a Republican leaning state, in an off year, with lower turnout (I'm guessing), but it's all because of freedom of speech. I mean, er, evil bundled out of state (must be) campaign money.

Something like that, some poutrage.

You are physically incapable of admitting that your party sucks or made bad calls. 'Even though the dems won it wasn't perfect so they actually lost!' You surround yourself with lies and bullshiat just to go forward each day.

I honestly just pity you.

That depends on how far right or left YOU are. He's pretty damn moderate. Anti-gun even.


No, Christie isn't moderate. Gun policies don't really matter, especially in a state like NJ where the book is already closed on that issue.

Not hating Obama withe the heat of a thousand suns is not an indicator of your political compass.
Not being pro-rape is not an indicator of your "moderateness"
and on and on and on. The problem is that much of the Republican leadership is so over the top with their insanity, it is almost refreshing to hear from a right-wing ideologue who doesn't advocate repealing the 19th amendment. That makes that candidate almost normal in comparison to the rest of the freakshow.

Christie throws away federal school grants, is anti public transportation (except for his helicopter rides to ball games) threw away a grant for infrastructure in the form of a rail tunnel that actually cost money to stop, plus he's a fattie and he's rude.

this is virginia in an off-year election. it should have been an easy win for the GOP. the only reason that polls said that mcauliffe - a universally despised washington insider - was "crushing" cuccinelli in the polls is that cuccinelli was such an extreme far-right candidate.
