Talk about desperately and feebly trying to change the topic!

Okay, who wants to break the bad news to Ponderosa that 29% of the vocabulary of the English language is of French origin?

There is a fine line between satire and absolutely batsh** crazy. Considering the idiocy on the right, I can't even tell if you're being serious or not. That makes me sad

Mitt Romney carried 24 states. We need to have conservative activists from all over the nation contact the electors, the Republican Party and the secretary of state in all of these states and tell them not to participate in the Electoral College when it meets on Dec. 17. If we can get 17 of those states (just over one-third) to refuse to participate, the Electoral College will have no quorum. Then, as the Constitution directs, the election goes to the House of Representatives. That is how we can still pull this election out and make Mitt Romney president in January. We need this concept shared with every tea party, liberty and patriotic group throughout the country. We have time to act, but we must pressure Republicans to do the right thing.
But come on now... really?

WND How Obama can be stopped in Electoral College Print



Good luck with that.
Kinda renders the whole democratic process of voting rather pointless if the losers are not going to respect the outcome of an election and instead are going to do everything in their power to overturn the results of the election for basically no other reason than their side didnt win..

Default Desperate Tea Party leader pushes Electoral College fantasy scenario

Fantasy is one of the major characteristics of the rabid right.

As one Republican strategist said, "If we'd run against Obama instead of our projection of Obama, we would have done much better."
