PLEASE GLOAT in this thread about R-money losing! Don't listen to naysayers

I know it is mildly tempting to listen to some people tell you not to gloat, but let us fulfill our inner urges and gloat. We have earned a solid two or three days of gloating. I'd say until Sunday night, even. I'm giving myself till Sunday night to gloat. That will give me three solid nights of listening to right-wing radio and gloating.

We have much to gloat about.

Facts triumphed over lies, most importantly. R-money ran the most dishonest campaign in history, and while he gave a somewhat classy speech, I still do not like him very much.

So please use this thread to gloat about stuff that makes you feel GOOOOOD.

I'll start on a conciliatory note:

I am glad that Mitt Romney lost so he will have more time to enjoy his brand spanking new CAR ELEVATOR. You earned it, Mitt. And aren't car elevators more fun than being president? Shit, I wouldn't mind one.

I am glad that Paul Ryan lost so he will have more time to enjoy his Ayn Rand novels and his P90X exercise routine.

1. I am gloating as hard as it's possible to gloat.

I am enjoying a huge fit of Schadenfreude. It makes me very happy to know that heads are exploding at Faux Snooze and that other web site.

5. I'm gloating so much in this Red State.

I've had several glasses of wine and bombarded Face Book with gloat statements. (sort of like drunk dialing). I've loved every minute of it and gotten several things off my chest. I can finally sleep tonight without Ambien. I love President Obama. Damn, I'm happy.

28. My Hubby's best friend lives in AK.

His friend is a republicon. They haven't spoken since my husband called to gloat election night. He held the phone up
for him to hear the fireworks we were shooting off.

They can dish it out but they sure can't take it.

This. 1000 times this.

That 47% tape's effect on the campaign will be studied in political science classes for decades to come.

9. Don't gloat because Mitch McConnell might be reading

& our gloating might turn him into an obstinate pinched asshole.
Oh, wait...

10. Hey, Republicans, you guys are stuck with Obama for 4 more years!

No amount of money nor voter suppression nor conspiracy theories is going to change this. Obama is going to take away your freedom to watch millionaires pay less taxes and your freedom to be without the safety net.
Deal with it, chumps.

11. Maybe not a gloat

but a dose of reality.

I am thankful Myth Robme and his pal, Lyin' did not win because, a win for them meant setting precedence like:

1) Endless lying during a campaign without being held to facts EVER, candidates won't have to answer questions they don't like and candidates won't have to even attempt to present a plan they tout so heavily as BETTER than their opponent.

2) Campaigns financed by other 'dark' corporate interests don't have to hold to any standards.

3) A candidate can't be compelled to be forthcoming with their tax records even IF their father was the one that set that standard.

4) If you don't like what you have said in the media previously, just ignore it and say something else emphatically. Again and again.

5) But most importantly, candidates are auditioning for a JOB for representing American citizen voices from around the entire country regardless of race, financial status, sexual orientation, religion or career choice. You cannot assume that you don't have to worry about any percentage of people just because they weren't on your side of the vote.

Good bye Myth. Enjoy your social security and retirement. Please select that same hidey hole as your good buddy, W. No one sees or hears from him. Thank goodness.

He's such a narcissist, he refused to concede even after the media had called Ohio, Colorado, Wisconsin, Iowa, and Virginia.

18. I'm gloating over the fact

that apparently there are still some things money can't buy. Am also gloating over the fact that Prince Paulie has to march his loser self back into the House where praise and adoration from colleagues is likely to be less effusive. But I'm also very relieved we have an adult in charge again.

Congratulations, Mr. President - you done good!

21. What makes me happy

well, just one of the many things that make me happy about last night is that I will not have to suffer through seeing Ann Romney ever again as long as I live. I kept having this sick feeling in my stomach every time I saw her. Sometimes at the most random moments, I was haunted by her yowling, "I LOVE YOU WOMEN!" It had me very concerned. So. I am very very happy to have these intrusions on my mental life fade into distant memories. I am also super happy that I never bothered to get to know the names of the Romney sons.

However, when you underestimate your opponent and talk smack, you're going to get it dished right back at you.
