My personal, misc. housekeeping post-election: First, RIP Seamus.

#1 item is retiring the signature line, "*I* am Seamus!1 We're ALL Seamus now!1" that I have been using since it became clear that Mittens would be the opponent. (And the "I Voted" avatar.)

Once last night's victory was done, I made it a point to surf past the networks and MSNBC and monitored Faux and Faux-Business, where CAVUTO and IMUS were on, then stayed up for the main event, Mittens' concession. Long live Seamus!1

I was thrilled with MacCASKILL and WARREN and in the thrill of things posted "MacCASKILL-WARREN 2016" and was promptly "rewarded" with a post saying, "MacCASKILL?!1 Have you seen her voting record?!1" to which I replied, "It takes a Conservative Dem to make inroads into Red territory." We need ALL Dems.

This morning I continued gathering nuggets, usually from the opposition, but on Morning Scabs, Danny DEUTSCH said that the Rethug brand is hostage to the TeaBaggers and needs to ditch the Old White Males direction and readjust to Hispanics, and that naming window dressing Cubans RUBIO and Ted CRUZ won't cut it for them.

But the hateful (to me) Don IMUS, whom I've happily ignored since he got kicked off MSNBC and replaced by Morning Scabs, has actually in the past couple of months been REFRESHING compared to Joe SCABS. Actually, despite his indisputable wingnutism, the line always applied to whassername Maureen DOWD from the NYT, "She hates everybody," applies also to him. And this morning he and his stooges were laughing their asses off at KKKarl, Dick MORRIS, and other wingnut yakkers and pollsters they named, but his mocking of MORRIS was particularly delicious. They brought up the toesucking, then said that "since he enjoys being ABJECTLY HUMILIATED so much he's probably ENJOYING" how wrong his predictions (continue) were.

And then, without a mawkish introduction, he played "I'll Stand By You" by The Pretenders as a consolation to wingnuts.



This morning, the horrible wingnut Don IMUS played this song as a consolation to wingnuts for their loss. Iím looking it from the other side, which is that I am not a personality cultist, so itís not about OBAMA, itís about the Democratic agenda, and it was Hispanics, Blacks, women, unions, and Gays who gave him the win and Hispanics above all have gotten less than anybody else, with unions close behind. Except for health care, Gays with the military and marriage have gotten more than anybody, not entirely with his whole support. The biggest potential victory is for the Supreme Court, although the likely vacancies will only be replacements for the Lib side, so the stalemate is likely to stay. Actually, Hispanics were Bill CLINTONís biggest supporters during the fake impeachment, yet got little from him either, although he and Hillary have passed by my house at least four times over the years picking up cash from the local construction dude, sometimes without their stopping to give speeches to any crowd. So these four years, OBAMA needs to be living up to this song for all of us, some more than others.

I'll Stand By You lyrics © EMI Music Publishing
Songwriters: HYNDE, CHRISTINE / KELLY, THOMAS / STEINBERG, BILLY

Oh, why you look so sad?
Tears are in your eyes
Come on and come to me now
Don't be ashamed to cry
Let me see you through
'cause I've seen the dark side too
When the night falls on you
You don't know what to do
Nothing you confess
Could make me love you less

I'll stand by you
I'll stand by you
Won't let nobody hurt you
I'll stand by you

So if you're mad, get mad
Don't hold it all inside
Come on and talk to me now
Hey, what you got to hide?
I get angry too
Well I'm a lot like you
When you're standing at the crossroads
And don't know which path to choose
Let me come along
'cause even if you're wrong

I'll stand by you
I'll stand by you
Won't let nobody hurt you
I'll stand by you
Take me in, into your darkest hour
And I'll never desert you
I'll stand by you

And when...
When the night falls on you, baby
You're feeling all alone
You won't be on your own

I'll stand by you
I'll stand by you
Won't let nobody hurt you

I'll stand by you
Take me in, into your darkest hour
And I'll never desert you
I'll stand by you
I'll stand by you
Won't let nobody hurt you
I'll stand by you
Won't let nobody hurt you
I'll stand by you
