Also, I Divorced My First Husband When My Daughter Was Four


AP also finally called Florida blue today, although others called it previously.

I forget all the voter-suppression states — Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania come to mind — but it would seem that tactic was a failure all around.

This time, anyway. Vigilance.

@nojo: Yeah, this election disabused me of the notion that there’s a switch they can flip somewhere and the RepubliKKKan wins…

…unless that’s exactly what they want us to think, and they let Obama win for a reason (cue the Twilight Zone theme).

The problem is that for the conspiracy to work you need to have so many people involved. Someone will blab.

After what we’ve seen, I would discount that.

@¡Andrew!: Obama had to win so he could take away our guns and the NRA would be proved right.

I’m getting really tired of the “Obama phone” meme among the wingnuts. That shit was started under W, and is the successor of low-income phone line access started under St. Ronnie of Raygun in the ’80s after the breakup of Ma Bell.

@rptrcub: As long as they don’t drag us down with their willful self-delusions, I’m all for ’em.

TJ/ Speaking of schadenfreude, I think the best Bon Mot I’ve seen after the election so far came in a comment at Unskewed Polls, where, as you remember, the “pollster” hinted broadly just prior to the election that Nate Silver was (gasp!) a homosexual and therefore not to be trusted.

The comment has been taken down, so I’m quoting from memory, but it went something like this:

Subject: Do you know how I know Nate Silver is gay?

Comment: Because he spent all day Tuesday fucking you in the ass.

Ah, pure genius is both rare and beautiful, isn’t it?

@nojo: I guess I should let them keep a hold of their sochulist squiggly light bulb fascism (again, bill signed by W) delusions, then.

@Tommmcatt May Just Have Some MJ In His System As Well, So What?: Made of pure awesome.

@Tommmcatt May Just Have Some MJ In His System As Well, So What?: I love language.

ADD: Also, the “Drunk Nate Silver” meme is a wonderful response to Chuck Norris.
