Last Tuesday, the GOP lost the election – big time. They need to understand that. The Democrats gained seats in the Senate, in the House and won an electoral college victory. The GOP were well and truly trounced. And they were fecking amazed, the gobshites didn’t even see it coming. They thought they were being oh so smart as they tried to denigrate Nate Silver and his predictions over a week ago.
Dean Chambers, a conservative blogger who gained popularity on the right by setting up a junk-science Romney-boosting site called UnSkewed Polls, implied that FiveThirtyEight was skewed by Silver’s sexual orientation. Chambers wrote that Silver is “of very small stature, a thin and effeminate man with a soft-sounding voice that sounds almost exactly like the ‘Mr. New Castrati’ voice used by Rush Limbaugh on his program.” (To which Silver responded with a classic Tweet: “Unskewedpolls argument: Nate Silver seems kinda gay + ??? = Romney landslide!”).
They didn’t respond with reason – only malice – revealing just what sort of horrible feckers they are. Nate Silver had the last laugh on that one.
The problem with the GOP, (apart from their policies), is that they won’t listen to reason. Within minutes of the election being called, Bill O’Reilly was mourning the fact that the white vote wasn’t enough anymore and that all people wanted was *free stuff.* Way to go, Billo! You really pulled in a whole new slew of voters there!
The ill-informed Republicans only listen to the likes of Rush Limbaugh, and Fox News idiots like Hannity, Palin, O’Reilly and the late Beck. These people are in the entertainment industry…they are making money by peddling lies and fear-mongering. The more outrageous the lie, the higher the ratings…it’s all about the moolah. Hello GOP. You have been had by the capitalistic society that you promote.
I met my friend Gerry this morning for coffee. We had a merry old time discussing the election and the stupified reaction from the RWNJs. Gerry asked me a very salient question…how can you get so many Americans to vote against their own self-interest?
Hint…it was the Red States that voted for Romney. What do they watch on TV?
Keep sticking your arse in the air, and your head in the sand. See where that will get you.
