It’s Mourning in America
What puzzles me is why anyone was surprised. Josh Marshall thought the same. He even began to wonder if all the talk of being blindsided was preparing the way for some Republican plot. But had to finally reckon that yes, they really were that dumb. Or does he? Maybe all the swagger was to pre-spin the outcome so that Romney didn’t look like such a pathetic dweeb.
Now we have talk of secession (as if) and the beginnings of the drive to impeach the president for violating the constitution by getting himself re-elected. Everyone is concerned about messaging, and some propose infiltrating Hollywood to promote right-leaning films. It seems that Batman, Iron Man, or X-Men aren’t enough. If all else fails, we will hold our breath till our face turns blue.
Anyhow, we’re all very upset. Except those of us who aren’t.
