Quote for the day -- after the landslide

"Anyone who doubts the reaction of the GOP stalwarts to Romney’s impending defeat should bear in mind this single, if chilling, fact. Most of them still think he’s going to win. They genuinely believe the polls are fixed. They seriously think the surge in support for Obama is nothing more than an 'MSM' conspiracy. Some of them clearly even believe the good Lord himself will appear in the spin room at the University of Denver next Wednesday.  And when non[e] of these things turn out to be true, the reaction will be truly terrible to behold. It will be like what happens inside one of those doomsday cults the morning after they all wake up and realise the world hasn’t ended after all. First the shock, then the denial, then finally the anger and retribution."

It's that last one that scares me.

Me too, especially since so many of them have guns. Glad I live in a very blue metro area.

I think of some the signs they had at the Tea Party rallies that read "We came unarmed this time."

I'm getting the message. If this could happen, anything could happen.

I saw that about the guy who shot his family and then killed himself. Obviously a real sicko but sad and tragic all at the same time.

Sacre bleu! Glad I live in a blue state as well.

But if you visit any of the howling conservative bloggers, you'll see their denial of the fact that they brought all of this on themselves.

It is truly wonderous how divorced they continue to be from reality.

They stubbornly and insistently refuse to see what they are.

Voltaire once said "It is dangerous to be right when the government is wrong." Today he'd probably say ".....when a mass of heavily-armed ignorant lunatics is wrong."
