In a shocking development, the United States of America re-elected a black, Muslim, non-citizen, socialist president. Barack Hussein Obama, a communist born in Kenya, has spent the last four years on an American “Apology” tour, while simultaneously plotting to destroy American’s religious freedoms, secretly installing Islamic Shariah Law, and moving to take away guns from all Americans. The ONLY reason Obama, a known lizard man who is also the AntiChrist, won, is because of 1) Media Bias 2) Vote Fraud 3) Hurricane Sandy 4) Alien influences.
So…what do you think? I think I could probably post the paragraph above on a host of right-wing websites, and get a lot of “serious” discussion. BACK TO REALITY, REPUBLICANS!!! Guess what? The polls were (gasp!) RIGHT!! The mainstream media was (gasp!) RIGHT!! Americans (gasp!!) PREFER a leader who tells the truth! Shocking!!!
The rational folks who actually looked at the evidence, like Nate Silver, have been proven correct. Were there any states missed by Silver? It looks like 332 will be the magic number. Look at Silver’s prediction site, and you’ll see the most predicted outcome was 332 electoral votes (look at his histogram of potential outcomes). In the meantime, right-wing “pundits” such as Dick Morris, who predicted a Romney landslide, were very predictably proven to be nothing more than right-wing shills.
I have high hopes that this election will mark an end to the Republican Party as it currently exists. I hope it results in a reformed Republican Party, where FACT, where SCIENCE play an important role. I have no problem with those with well-informed opinions that are different than mine, if they are indeed based on fact, on science where applicable. That’s obviously NOT today’s Republican party, where even simple POLLS are doubted, where climate change and evolution are a sham. I hope this election marks the end of the right-wing takeover of the Republican party. I hope it marks the end of politics dictated by HATE and INTOLERANCE.
Hey, I can dream. But on a night like tonight (OK, it’s now officially morning I guess)…even a cynic like me can believe in the basic goodness of Americans. Congrats, Mr. Obama! America has spoken, and they have, perhaps, SLIGHTLY lessened my overall cynicism regarding the human race.
