Right-Wing Blames God For Romney Loss And America’s Descent Into Socialism (LMAO -again)

The Republican Party has been suffering debilitating and very public seizures produced by the results of the election a couple of weeks ago. They are desperately attempting to find explanations for how they could have lost on such a grand scale an election they presumed was in the bag. After spending unprecedented amounts of money, Republicans still had to wake up Wednesday morning with Obama returning to the White House for another four years, two more Democrats in the senate, and nine more in the House. Even with the propaganda power of Fox News, the top rated cable news network, and its frothing companion web site Fox Nation, conservative fanatics were unable deceive enough citizens to vote against their own best interests.

At first the excuses focused on typically lame dodges involving the weaknesses of their candidates. Then they shifted to assertions that it was a failure from not being sufficiently conservative. Eventually they trotted out accusations directed at the allegedly negative, Chicago-style campaigning of the Democrats. And sprinkled in amidst all of this were hysterical wails of imaginary corruption and voter fraud.

Now that some time has passed, the forlorn right-wingers have been able to reflect on these events and discovered the true source of their despair: GOD!

That’s right. The Heavenly Father on whom they had entrusted so much of their hopes had betrayed them. It has become impossible to ignore that God clearly preferred Obama and other Democrats to the roster of GOP loonies that pretended to speak in His name.

Prior to the election, folks like Pat Robertson had confidently declared that God had personally assured them of a Republican victory. Now Robertson has had to backtrack saying that “I thought I heard from God, I thought I had heard clearly from God, what happened?” What happened was that you were unable to distinguish the voice of God from the hallucinatory voices rattling around in your senile head.

3. They're really flailing around out there

Their leaders were so sure of a victory, no, a landslide, that no doubts were ever expressed to any of the authoritarian followers. Now those followers are completely discombobulated, their authorities being exposed as either knowing nothing or lying--at last.

No one questioned Neil Newhouse's theory that the polls were all wrong because Democrats were disenchanted with Obama. Never mind there wasn't a scrap of evidence for that, it was all apocryphal, they accepted it fully. Then Dean Chambers popped up with his "Unskewed Polls" site based on Newhouse's suppositions and all the pundits had their "facts" established for them. The booboisie was never told there was a single doubt about this election. Obama would be buried.

Newhouse and Chambers are both shrieking that there must have been massive voter fraud, again without a scrap of evidence, trying to save themselves from lives lived out as night gas station kiosk cashiers.

The whole right is in complete disarray right now, all pointing fingers everywhere but where they belong. People who are so lacking in insight never manage to get it right.

I'm enjoying this tremendously, seeing Rove et al. being sucked in by somebody else's Big Lie. I do know some of these kooks are going to be in so much pain from losing their authoritarian structure so abruptly that they will act out in violence.

However, it is fun and incredibly satisfying to watch right now.

4. Will they EVER understand that the majority of Americans

don't like their policies? I honestly thoughrt we AND the Dems made it very clear that it was a choice election. Even many of the ZPubs agreed weith that! Well, the voters made their choicee, and AGAIN, because they don't like the answer, the Pubs aren't willing to recognize that.

5. Their policies of benefitting the rich only do not work.

When you start putting the rights of soulless and downright evil corporations above the rights of the individual - you're done. With the complete control of the supreme court at stake - having it fall into the wrong hands would be disastrous.

The biggest win in this election? Not only was Obama reelected, it proves Citizens United is a moot point.
