Mitt Romney is shellshocked, largely because of the standard GOP affliction of denying reality and listening only to their own bubble.
Also bubbling with shellshock are Gordon Howie's dispirited right-wingers. Brad Ford calls Obama's America a cancer, declares the Tea Party dead, and accuses Romney Republicans of erectile dysfunction:
Isn’t it time for a new paradigm, a different approach, some new blood on the Right? No, not the Tea Party which has shown that it’s too lightweight to make a difference. Isn’t a sham resistance worse than none at all? The solution has nothing to do with finely tuned platform formulas when the only enemy to be reckoned with is the easily seduced 47% voting bloc, growing as you read, like a cancer, by design. Sadly, the Left will win all future elections with this brilliant strategy, even within the GOP.
...Perhaps candidates for statewide office should be tested for testosterone at the time papers are filed. Best to get rid of all Republicans sporting Viagra logos on their t-shirts [Brad Ford, "Thank You, American Voters. Good Riddance to Romney and McCain," The Right Side, 2012.11.08].
Oh, the impotent rage. Brad Ford fantasizes that Democrats would ally with him and whatever's left of the John Birch Society. Sorry, Brad, but your unapologetic racism and sexism don't fit our agenda.
Meanwhile, Ed Randazzo gives up on America:
So where does that leave us as a nation now that Obama has been re-anointed and re-elected and America turns its face further away from God than ever before?
...Shall we not expect the wrath of God directed at a nation that has turned its back on Him and His Word? [Ed Randazzo, "Obama Re-Anointed, What Now?" The Right Side, November 9, 2012]
Yup, we're all darned to heck. Ed read the Bible, and it says so.
Meanwhile, sensible politicians are listening to the voters and getting to work on practical problems like immigration reform and the fiscal cliff. Oh, and Kristi, are you back to work on that Farm Bill yet?
