Quote for the day -- post-election meltdown

"There is some number of people out there – I have no idea if it's ten, a hundred, or a million, but they exist – who are going to, for lack of a classier term, completely and totally lose their shit if Romney does not win. It has little to do with Romney and everything to do with confirming their paranoid suspicion about what has happened to Their country. It has been stolen from them by the Muslim Usurper, who of course will have stolen the election (how could he win legitimately?) with busloads of illegal immigrants and Welfare Queens bribed with Obama Phones and the New Black Panthers and the U.N. and every other neo-Bircher boogeyman in the modern pantheon. If you thought the 1990s were bad under Clinton – Waco, Oklahoma City, the Michigan Militia, the Montana Freemen, etc. – I don't want to think about the level of anti-government insanity we might be primed to see in the next four years."

Also worth a look:  Obama's chances in Arizona, and Wonkette on right-wing hysterics over the Lena Dunham ad.

I already voted last week, and of course for OBAMA and the dem's. I seen this gal in line that I havent seen in about 2 year's or so, and she's a die hard republican too. She said to me ... "Oh Thomas ... I hope this time your voting for the right person ...(with a snicker)" I told her "Absolutely Tara ... I regret when I voted for Bush/ Cheney in 2000 and how they robbed all our surplus to fund these military contractor's and mega investment bank's, so this time I'm voting for Obama/ Biden!" ... she busted out laughing ... then looked sad saying ... "Oh my God Thomas ... your too much!"

Obama is a winner!

The rightwing blogs are already out of their minds. They've tried and convicted President Obama for treason in the tragedy in Benghazi, even though their own heroine, Condoleezza Rice, has said that no one should make any judgements, since these sorts of attacks often take months to sort out what happened.

They don't see the irony in all of this--the 9/11 attacks that killed 3,000 Americans--it took a year before an inquiry was started into the causes of that debacle.

Their irrational hatred of Mr. Obama is all they know, and that irrationality will send them over the edge on November 7.

RC: Good for you -- Texas will turn blue someday.

SK: On right-wing blogs they're already anticipating visiting the left blogosphere for gloating purposes on Nov. 7. They'll be in for quite a shock (I hope).

They be not alone.

The very thought that OMitt could actually win makes my inner calm go uncalm. It says sooooo much that the money-gang have foisted this person as a viable candidate and that he is a hare's breath away of winning!!!

My mind goes blank ...

Conservative Republicans, including the pols, their big-money backers and most of the rank and file, do seem to believe they're entitled to have one of their own in the White House, and that anything else is an aberration that must be the result of cheating or of too many of the wrong kind of people voting.

Their paranoia right now is heightened by having one of those "wrong kind of people" in the White House and looming demographic realities.

So yes, on the political right it's more and more a case of the lunatics having taken over the asylum. Most of them can't be reached by facts and realities because they don't want to be. They want to watch Fox, listen to Limbaugh, read Worldnut Daily and Red State, and regurgitate the comfort food-for-the-mind they've acquired at those places on each others' blogs and any political-left blogs where they can get away with doing that.

I don't expect mass rioting if Obama wins. I do think they already have plans for 2001-like "demonstrations" and dirty tricks if the vote tally is extremely close and contested, hoping for the same result they got that way in 2000. I also think the Secret Service should be extra careful about Obama and his family's safety.

EN: Me too. The signs still look good, but I'm not as confident as I was before the first debate. It'll be a nail-biter until the final results are in.

SWA: seem to believe they're entitled to have one of their own in the White House, and that anything else is an aberration that must be the result of cheating or of too many of the wrong kind of people voting.

Indeed, there were signs of that even during the Clinton administration, though nothing like as bad as what we've seen with Obama. And yes, the Secret Service will need to be especially alert, but I think they're used to that by now (Obama gets death threats at five times the rate of any previous President).
