1. Racist honkey day of reckoning.

 

Thank you, America, for repudiating these cynical, megalomaniacal sociopaths.

From the looks of those photos, White America did die that night...these people look like they're on life support.

Then again, I'm still here!

Just what I was thinking...they're mourning their $$$$$ wasted, and Junior in the pic above just got told that Daddy won't be getting that new cushy gubbmint job so Junior won't be getting the new go-cart.

15. Oh, the humanity!!

Yup, sorry people, you didnt cheat enough.
You didnt pay enough or throw enough people off the voting rolls.
You didnt put enough wrong address for the polls out there.
You didnt intimidate enough voters.
YOU DIDNT CHEAT HARD ENOUGH.
Next time you will own ALL the SOS, right?
Because it doesnt matter what people vote for as long as YOU COUNT THEM, right?


And when they get caught please,Mr. President, instruct our Justice dept.
to come down as hard as you have on the Medical Marijuana providers and users.

I well remember the "We're Not Sorry" site after W was re-selected, so this is some nice schadenfreude.

So keep 'em coming.

19. From another planet

If Romney's loss saddens them it means he excited them at one point. I can't imagine anyone having an emotional investment of any kind in someone like Romney. I'd better understand people excitedly throwing themselves on a pile of turds to devour them than feeling enthusiasm for the money grubbing robot.

26. Ugh

Why do I enjoy looking at these pics so much?

I think it's because I know all of these people or people just like them. I know the ignorance that their views are based on, I know they have fear and hate in their hearts. It's disturbing to watch them with their kids though.

It's a bunch of old people or bitter young people who think they've done it all on their own and someone is trying to take what's rightfully belongs to the white aristocracy. I just really think this is the most out of touch group of hate filled people you can get together. The entire campaign they supported was built on hurting regular people and people less fortunate.

30. So when the horrible things that were predicted don't happen

will they remember?
will it give them pause for thought?
will they figure it out?
will they know they have been lied to?
will they wake up?
will they shut down the right wing crazy machine?
will the rich pay their fair share of the burden?
will they finally shut the fuck up?

31. I can really feel their pain

This was how I felt in 2000 and 2004, and actually, I think it was worse because we went through this hell twice.

I hope they can let go and make the best of it instead of holding on to the bitterness and hatred that is lurking behind their tears as there will definitely be more to cry about in 2014.

We are going to fix our elections so that there can be no more suppression or intimidation and we -will- defeat the rest of the teabaggers and their racist, homophobic, misogynistic enablers.
