Probably because you're a fucking infant.

And I thought you kids would be in a good mood today!


My good mood has energized me to not let you and your bullshit slide by, doofus.

Well, the whole "mandate" thing is kind of silly in most instances, but an overwhelming popular vote win is what I think is a clear mandate in a traditional sense. Without looking back at numbers, pretty sure Reagan had one of those in, uh, was it 84? 80? One of them.

Honey, this is a mandate...

Love the irony. Yep, the people on here NOT posting gifs of jiggling boobs are the immature ones in the room.

Ned, at this point, you're not even posting empty talking points. Go wait somewhere for Rush to come up with those, and then come on back to copy and paste them here.

See Ned, there are a lot of things Republicans can and should take from yesterday. At the top of the list is that simply being a woman isn't a bad thing, as you seem to suggest.

Besides, isn't 286-251 in the EC and 50.7-48.3 a mandate?

Ned, thank you for demonstrating so aptly why the Republicans completely lost the women's vote.

The saddest part: I'm certain he still doesn't get it.

Because they didn't believe the polls and didn't think they were behind. This from the same crew that denies science, so not too surprising.


I don't know if they believed the polls or not. I do know that they believed that their supporters were much more motivated to get out and actually vote than the Democrats. They believed that Obama's voters were demoralized, if not also shiftless and lazy.

They appear to have been mistaken.

Ned, I sincerely doubt that Ted Kennedy had anything to do with Mitt Romney losing last night.

Thank you again Ned! Republicans are just too tiny minded to see the huge difference between "Team Rape" and Bill Clinton and Ted Kennedy. This is just so awfully sad for them that I will cry big crocodle tears for the likes of Akin and Mourdock.
Any other examples Ned? Keep em coming!

The left and the Democrat Party embraces and indeed lionizes two of the most abusive misogynists in U.S. political history.

Women who defend these pigs share the same disorder with women who continute to defend abusive boyfriends.

Sad and pathetic.
