In honor of the lack of concession speech the West Wing is always topical:

As a final note, Michele Bachmann is losing (barely; might not hold up) and literal war criminal Allen West lost.

Did Mitt just read his victory speech with a few lines copy-pasted in? Because it sure sounds like he is congratulating himself and his supporters for botching this election on a cosmic scale.

Heck, even as a victory speech it’s crap. It’s barely above the level of Oscar acceptance speeches. I’ve heard Power Point presentations with more sincerity and heart.

Are you still up, MGK? I know it’s late, and you’re Canadian, but Obama gave one heckuva speech.

Bunnyofdoom . . . thanks for the Twitter link. What a bunch of sore losers.

Look at that, I voted for my conscience and Obama still destroyed Mitt. #Shocked

Seriously, though, this was a hilarious read and stuff. 🙂

“Look at that, I voted for my conscience and Obama still destroyed Mitt. #Shocked”

It’s interesting that you claim to attach your conscience to what you yourself portray as a meaningless act.

dan, he’s saying that despite everybody telling him “You gotta vote for Obama, otherwise we could get a repeat of the Bush years!”, he voted for Jill Stein and we are not going to get a repeat of the Bush years.

(Well, apart from the Bush administration policies that Obama supports and has chosen to keep in place such as the Patriot Act, of course.)

But you know what, even if Romney had won, you know who should have been blamed for that? The asshats who voted for Mitt Romney.

And when Bush was declared president in 2000, it wasn’t the Nader voters who were responsible for that, so much as it was the fault of the people who voted for Bush, the people who helped Bush steal Florida and, finally, the Supreme Court.

Instead of getting angry at people who basically feel the same way that you do about the issues but who differ from you in that they aren’t willing to hold their nose and vote for a candidate who is actually similar to George W. Bush in a lot of ways, you should be getting angry at the people who believe the opposite of what you do.

Get angry at the people who think that Iran should definitely be bombed.

Get angry at the people who think that the rich deserve all of those tax breaks.

Get angry at the people who think that locking people up without trials is necessary to win the War On Terror.

Get angry at the people who believe that health care isn’t something everybody should be entitled to.

You get the idea.

Who says that anger has to be towards just one?

It makes about as much sense to blame non-voters for the outcome of an election as it does to blame draft-dodgers for the outcome of a war. “You BASTARD, if you’d just joined the army, we would’ve won!”

It makes plenty of sense to blame an election loss on the people who didn’t vote for your team.

And, really, when you walk into a room where the vote is 50% Kick The Puppy, 50% Pat The Puppy, and 0% Pat The Kitten, agonizing that “Oh, but I’m a cat person” is kind of ridiculous. Yes, half of the room is full of rotten puppy kickers, and they should not have voted that way, but the situation is such that there is a choice you can make that will result in less kicking.
