Yoda it'd be a picture of a three legged baby shrugging while breast-feeding from a wolf.

Bought some plants today. All of them are poisonous. Two of them are really poisonous. I'm like a fucking batman villain the yazoo sue express down the dollywood.

Damnit, anyone notice that FOX news was the first one to call it? It's like all the other stations were sitting there saying, "we know Obama won, but no one will believe us until the radical right-wing doushbags admit it." Kinda makes me sad.

I'm really curious as to the nature of how they were able to call Ohio when it was 50/50 and 83% of the votes were in. I think I know why they did it, but I'm just surprised they didn't explain it: basically all that was left were urban, Obama-leaning precincts. So even at 50/50, they knew Romney didn't have a chance, and went ahead and called it. But it did look really bizarre seeing a statistic that says, "Obama wins, even though it's currently a tie". Especially when Florida was less close, and they still haven't called it.

Unfortunately, in other news, my home state/district got FUCKED by radical gerrymandering. Jesus, it's getting ridiculous and evil. So Alaska has this amazing thing where the democrats and moderate republicans actually came together and formed a coalition, and it's been working great. Unfortunately, our douchbag governor hates them, and all the tea baggers are trying to run them out of office. So somehow the state GOP went to town on the redistricting, and it's utterly NUTS! We have one district that wraps around, and then goes 400 miles west all the way to the Bering Sea coast! That was the "lost cause liberal district" that they just created to put all the opposition together under one single person. Suddenly, we have incumbents running against each other because their districts got crossed, and the most angry aggressive assholes win. Furthermore, the guys who did the redistricting, after fighting it off stating that it was completely logical... when they won, they turned around and gloated, admitting they were gerrymandering. That's the kind of shit I expect from 11 year olds, not public officials!

The coalition could have been a model for America, but now it's finished... completely decimated.

I'm liking this new "you can't win by just getting the white vote" talk. MAYBE some republicans will listen. I'd love to see the moderate republicans finally stand up and take their party back. Look, I'm a democrat, but I can understand a lot of the moderate republican ideals, especially on fiscal policy. I'd like to think that both parties are basically "okay" but I just happen to agree with the ideas of one more than the other. But as it stands right now, the republican party has been eaten alive by assholes... politics aside, they're just jerks, if they were liberal democrats, they'd still be jerks. I'm actually starting to feel REALLY BAD for moderate republicans right now, and I want to cheer them on as much as possible. Hey, I even voted for one today. I'll listen to anyone who's willing to work with others and play fair. Our nation was built on compromise, and we have a whole party run by people who don't even understand the concept.

Moderate Republicans: there's a whole party of people who are perfectly willing to listen to your ideas. Come on over to our side and let's get to work. You'll have more success dealing with us than those who drove your party into the ground.

Democrats are also guilty of redistricting to racial bias. Aldermatic maps of Chicago would prove the fuck out of that right now.

I am looking forward to the massive amounts of butt hurt that will be exhibited on Fox News and conservative talk radio as Obama is re-elected.  The electoral math never favored Romney, ever, since the Republican party continues down a losing path of catering to a dwindling demographic.

One of my co-workers kept telling me how Romney was going to win in a "huge landslide".  He listens to every word Rush says so I'm not too surprised he would think that.  Will be an interesting day tomorrow at work.

I deal with a lot of that at work myself, being military.  Not a single one of them believed me when I said the electoral math was blatantly in Obama's favor for weeks.  Conservative talk radio (I listen to it frequently for entertainment) insisted Pennsylvania was in play when Romney started throwing money at it, but anyone with sense knew that he did it because he knew he couldn't win Ohio and wanted to try to make up those 18 required electoral votes somehow, and so he gambled at the very end the same way McCain did in 2008.  The gamble didn't pay off for McCain back then, and it sure as hell didn't this time either.

The only thing that surprised me with the outcome, is that Florida ended up going blue.  Electoral-Vote showed them leaning barely red.  Everything else though, played out as expected.

Absolutely... it's your civic duty as a politician to try and be as unethical and obnoxious as possible. But no really, you're right, and I feel for those in the opposite situation. But in my case, it's the republicans who are doing it. My dad tries to pretend that the democrats are better, but the fact is, people abuse the power that they have, regardless of ideology. Hopefully the system will eventually sort that shit out, but I'm not holding my breath.

I live in Illinois. Corruption in politics is basically expected and accepted. The fact that this guy was re-elected

Is a joke. Also, Jessie Jackson Jr. was re-elected as well, leading me to believe there is no future for humanity.

Exactly! I'm appalled that a guy who hasn't shown up for work in 6 months got voted back in. With 63% of the vote no less! What a joke.
I'm super happy Joe Walsh is out, though. That guy is scum.

Plus, several of the rape lovers got denied! Go women!

Basically. All the ruraler counties that went Romney closed early and reported fast because they didn't have nearly as many votes (and the ones that went Romney didn't really deviate much from 2008, in terms of the Democrat/Republican split). So when Ohio was at 50/50, you basically had like, Columbus, Cleveland, Toledo, and Bowling Green waiting to finish reporting. Really populous areas. Really liberal areas.

I love my mum very dearly, but her Facebook posts make me cringe.

I think it's the fact she writes in Scots as well as them being utterly inane.
