There is going to be a bunch of infighting first. Some in the party still want to go right and some are going to go center.

Hey everyone, America DIED last night. But we're still here


That Victoria Jackson from SNL had a Twitter meltdown too. Plenty of Christians showed up Victoria, just not in the way YOU wanted them to. Your way of thinking about that disgusts ME Glad I disgust you, I'm happy to be of service.

Victoria Jackson @vicjackshow

I can't stop crying.

The Republicans don't have a choice but to find a way to court the Hispanic vote. It is a rapidly growing demographic that just voted for Obama in excess of 70%. The hard realism is that trend cannot persist if the Republican Party wants to have any viable future.

Maggie Gallagher, the anti-gay Queen of NOM, talks sense:

Mistakes and Losses
By Maggie Gallagher
November 7, 2012 3:00 A.M. Comments73

1. Romney tried to win while leaning on only one leg of the the old Reagan coalition: jobs, jobs, jobs, economy, economy, economy. Against a president with a poor record on the economy, he lost.

2. The money guys bought the GOP nomination for a candidate voters didn’t like very much. Romney won by pummeling his opponents with negative ads. He lost the same way because he did not have a five-to-one money advantage over Obama.

3. Either we figure out how to win a much larger share of the Latino vote or the conservative movement could be over. The “truce” — Rove’s Crossroads strategy — is a clear failure. I think social issues are part, but only part, of a serious effort to appeal to Latino voters. We also need to show them we care about them by doing something about the DREAM Act, and religious conservatives should take the lead on this.

4. The Obama electorate defeated marriage. I’m guessing we lose at least three of tonight’s four races, and maybe four of the four. We were outspent eight-to-one — and no one was willing to speak for marriage, while the whole Democratic establishment and Hollywood campaigned for marriage. Last night really is a big loss, no way to spin it.

Mistakes and Losses - By Maggie Gallagher - The Corner - National Review Online


of course, #4 is shallow and self-pitying, but reading the comments on this conservative website, it seems lots of them fully get the fact that gay people represent no threat in any way, shape, or form to anyone or anything.

this is hopeful.

I don't get how marriage has been "defeated". Still alive and well.

A rising tide lifts all boats

So Bachmann won slightly, huh? The one bad thing to happen...

When is the next chance to defeat her?

I don't usually say this, but you did good Maryland. Now y'all just need to learn how to drive.

I think the Democrats picked up 3 seats in the Senate
and 9 House seats.

The President had some coat tails.

I'm loving the Republican postmortem I'm hearing his morning:

Basically, there's not enough of a white majority in the electorate to get elected by appealing only to them anymore, so they have to stop (openly) hating people. Nice.

At least we'll have her nuttiness to keep us entertained. Maybe she'll run for President again. The possibilities are endless.

hahaha. It's usually Canada though, which is obviously funny.

And yes, Bachmann is very funny, and could lose in 2 years anyway if she barely clinged on this time.

That's not how our government works.

We may not do everything right but the one constant through the ages is the balance of power. Otherwise known as gridlock when and if at all possible.
