33. Saw this on RedState last night

Amazingly schaudenfreude-tastic thread about the con artist IT consultants Romney hired who ripped the campaign off for millions and millions of dollars, and then delivered a breath-takingly crappy IT solution that crashed on election day.

The discussion was so tasty that I'd link to it, but it's no longer working - I think they've pulled it down.

Anyway, someone started criticizing Fox's numbers, and another conservative mounted a long, articulate defense of the network as a purely profit-making entertainment entity, not a get-Republicans elected/GOTV entity. He basically said that if they needed to lie about the potential outcome to keep viewers watching, so be it - they had no responsibility to the Party or the Party Faithful.
Chilling, but a fascinating look at the vulture mindset.

(I'd forgotten until I saw this blog for the first time last night that there ARE hard-core conservatives who can actually spell, write and construct coherent narratives. They need a little help with their thinking, but at least their wrong-headed arguments were understandable (unlike FR).)
