Did the GOP cut off the paid trolls too?

The Yahoo comments have suddenly become much more civilized.

2. I couldn't feel sorry

 

for the Romney campaign workers who got their credit cards cut off before they got home election night. It's probably one of the few times in their sorry lives they've actually felt the hurt of Republican policies.

4. PESD

Post Election Stress Disorder.

It was amusing to watch the emotional roller coaster many of the unhinged rode the past couple days. On Monday they were certain that Willard was going to wipe the floor with President Obama...Rushbo, Rove and Dick Morris told 'em so...they had the "polls" to prove it. It was all over but popping the champagne corks and blowing off fireworks in Boston Harbor. Then...people began to vote!

On Tuesday they were sure that this rise of "Chick Fil A" rushpublicans would materialize across the country...easily swamping the Obama early vote effort and create this massive wave into a new "conservative" era. It was just a matter of time for the numbers to explode. They were certain...they saw all those large crowds at the Willard rallies and knew the tidal wave was welling up. Except that the wave was going in the other direction!!

By Wednesday they were looking for lifelines...surely there were votes still to be had...they surely had the popular vote. Then more votes were counted. The thud of reality started to be felt and most weren't sure who screwed them more...the "stupid" voters? The greedy politicos" The "librul" media? Surely someone led them down this rosy path only to be blindsided. Denial and anger flowed...they were ready to "Go Gault" or to Canada (yeah, I laughed about that one) or head into the mountains of Idaho.

By yesterday, you could see fatigue starting to set in. The realization of 4 more years of President Obama is still something they can't deal with...so you see them now pulling their puds and trying to figure what to do next. There's truly a power vaccuum in a world that thrives on order and the lull we're experiencing now will be short lived as the right wing blame game is about to begin and, once again, logic and common sense will be steamrolled by emotions and hate. They haven't learned a damn thing...

7. The Yahoo comments section is a place I will never go again.

 

I used their financial forums 5-6 years ago and was astounded by the rudeness and misinformation posted there.

9. Well I may have been a bit hasty

There's at least one troll stinking up the place on the Ann Coulter thread at Raw Story, lol

A real piece of work too.
