Tonight is a great night for the GOP faithful to really take stock on what their media tells them.

"Skewed Polls", "Liberal bias", "Socialism" etc etc.

Time to wake up and smell the coffee, your GOP masters have been lying to you for years now, using fear and anger to get you all lathered up into a frenzy and unaware of how things work (like polling for example.) In the meantime the real world is much different than what you are told to believe.

This election is proof positive of that.

Swallow your pride and accept reality. We'd all be better for it.

I'll take the low road and suggest that they go jump off the nearest high bridge. LOL...

So.......just ignore what is good and right for the country and sell out to giving people free stuff to buy their votes?

They'd be quicker to do that, then question what they're been spoon-fed by the right wing fear machine.

What this election should tell certain subsets of conservatives - the more extreme ones - is that their social views based on the 1890s are good for...well..the 1890s. But the world has moved on, and most of us don't want them today.

See what I mean?

So sad. Our country could be so much better without this.

But as I said, I know it's highly unlikely anybody is willing to be introspective enough to do this. It takes a lot of humility and requires honesty and integrity.

Wallowing in all this arrogance is kind of foolish when your candidate won by only the skin of his teeth. He has no mandate at all. He's inherited a big mess from the last 4 years and he has no clue how to get things turned around.

Can we say gridlock? Obama is a lame duck is all -- which is probably better for this country than a liberal Republican who could build bi-partisanship with his liberal Democrat friends and get things done -- those may not have been too good for us. Gridlock is better.
