Talking Head/Exploding Head
Listen I don’t want to gloat TOO much here at the Republican Party. It’s kinda mean. Indeed, as a former John Kerry supporter, I understand what they are going through right now because I also know what it’s like to watch an uninspiring Massachusetts millionaire lose an election to a guy you think is a total jackass. Still, it is VERY entertaining to see some of the conservative reactions to Obama’s impressive numbers last night. Put on your ponchos guys, you’re about to see some heads explode.
On the establishment side of things, rotting Clinton-era man-pumpkin Dick Morris, who projected a landslide victory for Romney, went on Fox and Friends to eat crow this morning. He said his predictions were off because it’s a “new America” which is just more diverse and Democrat-leaning than he expected. That’s noble of him. On the other hand, rotting Bush-era man-pumpkin Karl Rove just about lost it at his colleauges on Fox News last night when they called Ohio a bit too early for his liking. Rove, once the architect of the Bush administration, has completely jumped the shark (a not unimpressive feet for someone built like a soft-boiled egg).
But those are the people who, while not grounded in any reality, at least have some connection to politics. How about the
zealot nutbags patriots?Donald Trump, a man known throughout the world for being a class act and his graciously, humble demeanor, cried out on twitter for a “revolution” and declared “the world is laughing at us”. Sorry Donald, the world is in fact laughing at you.
But the best response by far though came from comedienne and probable-undiagnosed-brain-injury-victim Victoria Jackson. Jackson, who in a cruel twist of irony was once on SNL with current U.S. Senator Al Franken, tweeted of last night’s results “Thanks a lot Christians for not showing up. You disgust me.” Her best line though was her simplest: “I can’t stop crying. America Died.” Yes, folks, America ran into the street and Barack Obama ran it over with his motorcade. Just tell the kids we sent it to a farm upstate.
Okay, I’m done gloating for now.
