GOP Grapples w-FAILURE: Dems “must be looking at us like we’re biggest f__king morons in the world”



GOP Grapples With Embarrassing Polling Failures
It hurts to lose. It hurts even more when you don't see it coming.


No matter what the answer is, the GOP knows it must come up with a more reliable method of measuring the electorate. It hurts to lose; it hurts more when a party doesn’t see it coming. And this year, Republicans were completely blindsided.

Democrats “must be looking at us like we’re the biggest f——- morons in the world,” one frustrated Republican said. That’s what I’d be doing.

Their failure to assess the electorate this time has nothing to do with it.

We are sympathetically encouraging you to stay the course because we whole-heartedly agree with you that ideology and wishful thinking will over-come math and reality.

7. Yeah. You know why?

BECAUSE YOU'RE THE BIGGEST FUCKING MORONS IN THE WORLD!

And why does that surprise you idiots? I thought you liked it that way!

During the run-up to Election 2000, all I ever heard out of you dipshit fuckbuckets was: "Prezdint? Ah don't want no smart feller; Ah jes' want someone Ah kin have a beer with!..."

Your own fucking idea to be perceived as the morons you are. Don't complain to me...

10. Oh, it's beyond that.

I cannot get enough of reading and seeing just how badly the idiot conniving criminal rethugs lost. It is a wonderous miraculous fantastic amazing divine thing. I won't be letting it go for a very VERY long time.

And what's even more wonderful, they seem to be doubling down! rofl. Or! when they try to talk immigration and minority vote they have NO CLUE what language to use.

It will be SO fun watching them try to reconcile the blind stupidity and vile hatred they have cultivated over the last 30-40 years with now trying to undo it and take a different approach.

They're liars either way and their followers look like idiots because of them. There is no way around that.

They made their bed and now they must lie in it, while I revel! revel! in the reality that America has rejected them and their lunacy~

They made a deal with the Devil--hatred, bigotry, all sorts of evil--to maintain their grip on power and wealth, and now the Devil will have his due.
Hahahahahaha!

But over the years we've come to accept Republicans as our brain damaged, dangerously insane relatives. It's the rest of the world that sees you as morons.

Sam Wang and Nate Silver just couldn't possibly be right even though they're cold-bloded Vulcan number-crunchers without a dog in the fight. Naw, they couldn't be right.

32. The stupidity is that there was gobs of data out there and they chose to be lied to.

They have to get some councilling and get hold of that delusional streak

And while they're at it they can deal with the denial stuff, too

Let's face it, we think they're idiots
They try to impose their religious beliefs on the rest of the population
They try to stop the progress of the society
They do nothing to benefit the people who elected them and still expect to get paid
And they want to pull $713B from the people and give it to the wealthy
They fight for the wealthy who put billions into the presidential race
(when they could have just sat back and paid some extra taxes)
They try to suppress voters and expect support from the judicial system.

Oh people, we should jut make a long, long list and send it to them as a reminder...

35. Duh. After Occupy made clear we are the 99%...

the Republican morons nominated the most one-percenter candidate they could find! One one-percenter who made his fortune by bankrupting profitable companies, sending their jobs to China for more profits, and raiding their pension plans.

Gotta be frigging kidding!!

DUH!

36. They ran rape philosophers

and a "pioneer of outsourcing jobs to China".

They don't believe in evolution or climate science....

They still think giving tax cuts to billionaires will fix the economy.

They talk about making America into a land where so much suffering happens that "self-deportation" occurs as if this is a good thing. (because making it so that no one around the world would aspire to live here would be such a good thing... F that "land of opportunity" crap)


Misreadng polls badly is one of the smaller dimensions of their problem.
