About Republicans not letting go ...

Wondering if this could be a logical, or inevitable manifestation of the "self-esteem" movement - where every child is entitled to be a winner, irrespective of performance, and reinforced by our customer service culture which panders to consumers' most frivolous and banal whims. Seriously, there seems to be spoiled brat component to this temper tantrum being played out on a national scale that can't be entirely explained by right-wing media propaganda.

1. so many seem to be older though

I think it is the effect of the brainwashing that has gone on. During their sessions (FOX, Limbaugh etc.) no mention was ever made of what to do if the Republican savior lost. These are people who are lost and looking for a way to change the outcome to match their brainwashed ideals. They are trying to rid themselves of the anxiety they are feeling - what the election with Romney winning would fix and allow them some peace of mind.

They are the lab rats that are usually euthanized but as humans, they instead must find a way to go on and they are flailing about.

3. Hmmm... Maybe. I think they're just psychopaths

From Wiki:

Psychopathy is a personality disorder that has been variously described as characterized by shallow emotions (in particular reduced fear), stress tolerance, lacking empathy, coldheartedness, egocentricity, superficial charm, manipulativeness, irresponsibility, impulsivity, criminality, antisocial behaviors such as lacking guilt and living a parasitic lifestyle

4. Ok, here is my question to DU ...

If Romney had truly won the election, would you be able to move on and accept him as your president?
