A fantastic article, maybe not so much if you are a republican who believes in the republican media and doesn't want to see the truth, but it's fantastic

And in terms of full on "derping it" I just read something that makes me sad. The Election has taken someone that I thought was at least semi rational, even if extremely conservative, and based on their comments has turned them into a "prepper". ugh. I am genuinely sad about it.

Wow, I didnt know Karl Rove was the guy behind the American Crossroads SuperPAC -- you know, the one with the ad that has that lady that is sitting in her massive kitchen with granite countertops, recessed bay windows, and french doors as she watches the President speak on her flat-screen kitchen television … and then watches him again on her iPad -- and says her family can't afford four more years of "this"

I have an aunt who is literally praying to God on FB over this shit. It's all I can do to keep from saying something, I'm like... seriously?

I was also pleasantly surprised to find that the Deep South (Alabama/Mississippi) were actually pretty close to 50/50, not just overwhelming Mitt support.

Republican Agenda:

Alienate largest-growing voter segment (Latinos) - Check.
Pose as conservative Christian and run a Mormon - Check.
Alienate women - Check.

Wonder why they lost - Check.

Seeing women crying/disappointed over the fact that Romney lost the election is just about the weirdest thing ever. I cannot wrap my brain around it at all.
