MORE Sanity breaks out on the Right...

Red State:

We try hard to be a serious website where serious-minded people can interact and a website that can be read and quoted in the media and in political circles without people laughing and pointing. You can’t do that when your comments section is infested with people espousing various conspiracy theories.

...snip...

This last election was a hard loss of all of us, even those of us who were never Romney fans. I think we all realized the limitless ability to harm the nation that Barack Obama and his minions represents. Be that as it may, the people have spoken (the bastards) and we are saddled with this guy for another four years.

If we are going to move beyond this we have to face the facts. We were out hustled. They turned out their base and we couldn’t be bothered to turn out ours, much less do what it takes to win uncommitted voters. We lost. They won. And the nation will suffer because of it.

What did not happen was any “stealing” of the election. No one denies that there were irregularities in some places but the sum total of the allegations do not reach Kennedyesque proportions where they actually affected the outcome in any material way. This is nonsense and just as silly when people on our side make the claim as when the left howled about Diebold machines giving the 2004 election to President George W. Bush (President… George… W. … Bush, my gosh that sounds so beautiful today).


Dear me, I hope it's not catching...

2. Sanity? I guess I must mostly agree..

at least the post is mostly reasonable.
Except for--
" I think we all realized the limitless ability to harm the nation that Barack Obama and his minions represents."


That gets my goat. I am not a minion.

I used to go to Ebbets Field !!

16. The original writer's subject-verb agreement could use some work: "Obama and

 

his minions represent" (Third-person plural. Just substitute 'they' for 'Obama and his minions' and you'll hear the error.)

4. Obviously, Red State is part of the conspiracy.

Their subscribers should consider them discredited and ignore anything Red State has ever told them was true.

5. Erick ...

They turned out their base and we couldn’t be bothered to turn out ours, much less do what it takes to win uncommitted voters.


Yes, we did! We did turn-out our base. But, I'm going to point out to you, what should be obvious to anyone that observed this election ... you DID turn-out your base and it proves that your base is an ever shrinking demographic and your governing philosophies are repugnant to an ever increasing segment of America.

7. They're STILL playing the whine that they were "out hustled" and voter turnout was why they lost

NO, NO, NO you ass wipes. Yes, you were out hustled and voter turnout was greater than you predicted.

But all of that was due to the horrible policies you espoused and the horrible candidate you put forth. No one liked Willard. Not even your own GOP base.

You had a policy message that sucked and a candidate that sucked. That's why you lost.

11. The man is still an idiot

The harm Obama will do to. Spare me this line of Bull. Ever problem that we as Americans face has either been cause or made worst by conservative BS and they never seem able to learn from there many past failures. What they have to offer America is nothing. All they know how to do is lie about everything under the sun. There is no sanity to be found on the right at all.

12. They still believe Kennedy stole the 1960 election?

Fifty two years later? Kennedy would have won without Illinois.

15. Catch the slur against JFK buried in the last paragraph of the

 

excerpt?

"allegations do not reach Kennedyesque proportions"

What a load of oft-repeated unmitigated bullshit. JFK won the electoral college 303 to 219, FFS. The popular vote means nothing, NADA. And JFK did not even need Illinois' electoral votes to cross the 270 threshhold. Goddamnit, but I get sick of this shit.
