Post-Election Wingnut Roundup
We know that John McCain lost because he was a shorter, angrier version of George W. Bush. The wingnuts, however, have other ideas:
Ace of Spades – we lost because McCain wouldn’t let Sarah Palin drill in ANWR.
American Thinker – we lost because we nominated a Reagan Democrat.
Macsmind – we lost because McCain neglected to emphasize the fundamental tenets of the GOP: fags, flags, and four more wars.
Michelle Malkin – we lost because McCain failed to express sufficient hatred for illegal immigrants and anchor babies such as myself.
NRO (Byron York) – we lost because we needed a bigger boat.
NRO (Pantload) – as usual I have nothing useful to add, but I wish to point out that our tax system is more progressive than Sweden’s if you ignore what people actually pay.
NRO (K-Lo) – as usual I have nothing useful to add, but I shall express my fervent hope that John Bolton is the Republican that Obama promised in the cabinet.
Tom Brokaw (yes, he’s flipped) – McCain lost because his voters take up a significant portion of the nation’s square footage.
Townhall (Pantload) – we lost because John McCain failed to redistribute sufficient wealth to Joe the Plumber.
Townhall (Tony Blankley) – we lost because McCain ignored conservative principles – it had nothing to do with the GOP’s two unpopular wars, manifest corruption and managerial incompetence, a collapsed housing market that resulted in a 20-50 percent crash in the home values for most Americans, and a financial crisis that threatens world prosperity and has reduced the value of the average American’s stock portfolio by about 40 percent. Nothing.
Townhall (Wynton Hall) – we lost because nobody remembers the wonderful things unbridled capitalism brings, like breadlines, Hoovervilles, disease, and death … ah, the good old days.
