The GOP polling debacle

"For Republicans, one of the worst parts of the GOP’s 2012 *trouncing* was that they didn’t see it coming."

"Top party strategists and officials always knew there was a chance that President Barack Obama would get reelected, or that Republicans wouldn’t gain control of the Senate. But down to the final days of the national campaign, few anticipated the severe setbacks that Republicans experienced on Nov. 6."

1. One of the sweetest things about this election

is how Republican know-nothing-ism (when it comes to science, stats, math etc) came back to bite them in the ass. So appropriate.

2. A day that will live in Republicon infamy

Oh the humanity! But seriously. If they cannot run a competent truthful campaign, what makes anyone think they'd run the government any other way? Am I right?

4. Republicans never live in reality

They live in their alternative reality where 50% of the population are neocons. They think Faux News is actually a news channel.

5. LOL

“There were just too many damn Democrats,” the pollster said.
