After the math

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.

    As a half-spic with relatives in Florida, I resent getting dissed like that. ;-) My mom spent months doing volunteer GOTV work in Broward county and she’ll testify as to the importance of the Latino vote in this election.

  2. Great work Kevin. I’m not sure what the point of your blog entry was other than to spew more hatred and intolerance for groups of people you don’t agree with. Again, well done.

  3. Its not they are groups that we dont agree with, its they are a group of hatefull know-nothings. Saying the other side are traitors, as the right has done for 8 years, is not something I can take. It is not a valid argument and needs to be shown for what it is. pure hate.

  4. Anne Coulter is not a “person [we] don’t agree with” — she’s a vicious, vacuous hyena who would just as soon see Obama supporters in jail as listen to anything we/they have to say.
    Sarah Palin is of the belief that humans and dinosaurs coexisted, that she once needed to be exorcised (clearly it failed), and that a dead Jewish carpenter’s son is going to stage a reappearance in a short time.
    The far-right is under the thrall of demagogues and wackaloons such as these (actually it’s composed of them), and until their collective psychosis breaks, they remain the single greatest threat to America — and to the world — in this century.

  5. Don’t gloat too long. Dunford and Orac are reporting that Obama may select anti-vax hack RFK Jr. as head of the EPA.

    Wanna really raise some hackles? Hows about Dennis Kucinich for Attorney General?

  6. Lofcaudio is a lifelong moron who is presently licking his wounds and knows no better than to lash blindly out. Good for him. He’ll be back.

  7. I recognize hyperbole when I see it. After all, I use it all the time. But remember, there are quite a few “others” who voted for Obama down here in the south.

  8. Kevin, what would make you think that I am licking my wounds? Nothing could be further from the truth. However, I am dismayed to see people like yourself who are unable to celebrate a political victory without evincing unabashed bigotry.
    This reminds me of a quote penned by a not-so-wise man: “I’m not sure it gets any dummer[sic] than that.”

  9. So, if someone calls a bigot a bigot through the use of satire and hyperbole, that means that he’s prejudiced against bigots and therefore a bigot?
    OK…

  10. “…unabashed bigotry”
    Lofcaudio, my use of pejorative terms, however parodically, was crass. It’s probably not good form for a white gentile to toss around terms like Kike and nigger even if for rhetorical effect.
    Yet I am not convinced your accusation of bigotry is founded in the deployment of these terms. Something tells me you’re just pissed off in general because your candidate got smoked, and I’m taking savage pleasure in the fact. I managed to stay gone from this blog for close to six months, as did you. Yet the moment I posted, there you were, as full of shit and as aggrieved as ever.
    I honestly hope we do get the chance to, as you have mentioned, sit down over a coffee or some such, because otherwise I’ll be forever tempted to punch you in the face for your stalkerish behavior.

  11. Yet the moment I posted, there you were, as full of shit and as aggrieved as ever.
    As is your habit, you continue to ridicule the very behavior that you exhibit on an even grander scale. For instance, you announce to this blog on May 28th that you will no longer be posting here at the Refuge, yet not even a month later (June 24th), you come out of self-exile for the sole purpose of harassing me.
    So I ask: Who is stalking who?
    Something tells me you’re just pissed off in general because your candidate got smoked
    You are wrong. Again I ask, what makes you think I am so upset? You assume wrongly if you think that McCain was my candidate.

  12. Lofcaudio,
    I’d like to remind you that you didn’t need to respond to my irascible co-blogger(s) at any given point in this purported conversation or others.
    I’ll add that you could have commented on my recent entry which deals with a famous moral dilemma faced by scientists, music, and lofty literature and poetry. But no. You’re here to wallow in the muck. Please do not elevate yourself beyond that of the rotting and slippery banana peels scattered around this joint.
    In other words, don’t make me come back there.

  13. Lofcaudio apparently cannot distinguish between a post and a comment. I never said I wouldn’t tear into morons in the comments section beneath Jim’s or Doc’s posts. (Actually, I suspect that he’s capable of making the distinction, but chooses not to because he would rather dissemble, the one rhetorical skill he possesses in abundance.)
    You’re perfectly free to visit this blog for the sole purpose of posting wounded nonsense under religion-themed posts; just don’t pretend you’re doing anything else.
    If McCain was not your top choice, why do you find it necessary to complain? And by the way, “hatred” and “intolerance” are excessively strong terms, but you never met a bit of hyperbole you didn’t like.

  14. Nigga please’ Why don’t you just make love to the chimp in the whitehouse son of an African alcoholic and a coal burning crazy white bitch. Some village in Indonesia or Kenya is still looking for their village idiot
