I’m not going to gloat. Instead I’m going to expand merrily on the success of my ideology at the expense of the opposition. Oh, wait…well, never mind.
Those of you with Republican leanings would be well advised to pay attention to what your talking heads have screwed you into, because there’s little getting out. Whatever fiscally conservative, forward-thinking, willing-to-engage traits your party may have had 30 years ago are nonexistent, and in its place stands a caricature of an evil clown that only the most benumbed of observers can support. This was your choice on Tuesday, and I’m not surprised at how many balked.
I grew up in New Hampshire. New England as a unit is, in terms of its population, a Florida-like entity, carrying 34 electoral votes, and every one of them went to Barack Obama. New Hampshire offered the closest contest, a sound 55% to 44% thumping. Region-wide, Obama garnered a startling 62 percent of the vote, 3,860,530 to 2,285,671.
In my home state, Democrat Jeanne Shaheen, an enormously popular governor from 1997 to 2003, trounced incumbent John Sununu by garnering 52 percent of the vote to Sununu’s 45 percent. And Carol Shea-Porter, the first woman ever elected to Congress in the Granite State, handily defeated Jeb Bradley to retain her House seat. That means that three of four top seats (not including the governorship, held by millionaire Democrat John Lynch) are held by Democrats. I’d be amazed if this has ever happened in New Hampshire; the fourth of these spots, held by U.S. Senator Judd Gregg (R), is maintained by a reasonable man.
In Virginia, where I live now, reflexive fundamentalist sympathties have given way to Teh Youth Vote. Obama won this state mainly as a result of getting the Youth Vote going. Good for him.
We now have a black guy about to take the reinsof the highest political office in the world. How awesome is that?
In Florida, sizable triumphs in the big counties–Dade (Miami), Broward (Fort Lauderdale), Palm Beach (West Palm Beach), Pinellas (Saint Petersburg), and Hillsborough (Tampa) can be blamed for Obama’s win in the Sunshine State. Absent the influence of niggers and Jews, Florida is simply one more south-of-somewhere-useful wasteland, wholly under the influence of rednecks and worse. So thanks to the darkies and the Kikes I used to happily consort with at Publix and at road races, and piss on the rest.
These are the people expected to play a role in democracy. Fuck them. They should be buried under tons of rubble, with their voices reduced to meaningless whispers. Failing that, it’s appropriate to knock them on blogs–to point out just how stupid they are. They will complain and compain,even as their own pointless lives grow worse as a direct result of people they’d love to see in place. I’m not sure it gets any dummer than that.
