So enquiring minds want to know...Did Republicans learn anything from being crushed, utterly decimated and driven before the chariots of their enemies?
Not really. Some more than others I spoze.
However, I saw one right-wing website today whose proprietor drew an extraordinarily bizarre conclusion from the election. He says it's obvious that Obama stole this election in broad daylight.
At least he uses factual evidence, pointing out that "According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, Mitt Romney on Tuesday received ZERO votes in 59 Philadelphia voting divisions! ZERO!"
So here's the deal: 59 precincts in the inner city of Philadelphia drew not a single vote for Romney. What conclusion would you, dear reader, no doubt a reasonable and perceptive person, draw from this startling fact?
Mr. or Ms. BigFurHat, whose blog is called I Own the World, sees this as conclusive and indisputable evidence that Obama has stolen the election! In broad daylight! Because he got close to 100% of the vote in 59 precincts in Philadelphia and THAT'S NOT POSSIBLE!
"But don’t try to tell liberal media members that voter fraud is real," BigFurHat continues, deploying his Cheeto-stained fingers to draw the wrong conclusion.
But there's no conclusion necessary. The information itself is the stark, naked truth -- Romney did not pull a single vote in 59 precincts in in-town and largely black Philadelphia. The same thing happened in nine precincts in Cleveland.
And it's not impossible. It's about what I expected, and it's the state of the nation.
