And so the massive Republican/teabagger over interpretation of results begins,...

...and is being aided by the media. Of course, as I stated yesterday, the media has worked hard to manufacture this result.

So now I'm reading that Rand Paul has interpreted the results as a repudiation of Hillary Clinton, the Republicans/teabaggers are believing that their prospects for 2016 have improved (after all, big Republican/teabagger mid term wins in 1994 & 2010 swept them into the White House in 1996 & 2012...errr...OOOPS!) and we Democrats have to do a lot of "soul searching" after the outcomes.

Let me get this straight, after 2008, the Republicans/teabaggers have a huge convention where we get the pleasure of seeing Rush Limbaugh jumping up & down on what must have been a specially reinforced stage before proclaiming the glorious victory of the conservative cause. Then after 2012, they do a study on how to re-connect with voters and determine that they have to do...NOTHING!

Bur WE have to "soul search". Well I say FUCK THEM! We're right and they're wrong and and they can go fuck themselves, the horses they rode in on and the turds that those horses are about to try to dump on America!

Maybe Rand Paul thinks that if he's in a debate with Hillary (or any other Democrat) that if given a hard question he'll be able to drop a cheeseburger on his podium and run away and then be elected president because he knows that African American voters have only been waiting for an avowed white supremacist to get the Republican nomination so that they can flock back. Maybe Ted Cruz thinks that after Republicans/teabaggers screaming that a President who was born in Hawaii was foreign born, that he'll get a free pass on his Canadian birth. Maybe little Ricky Santorum thinks that America was only pining for a nerdy assed little shit like him to lead us out of the "hummasechel" plots of the "danged libril commies"!

I say that they're stupid. They were stupid yesterday, are stupid today and will be stupid tomorrow and everyday until some sane Republicans decide that they want to be, once again, the party of TR & Ike and not the party of the Palins, Bachmans, Rubios and Ernsts. THAT will only happen after they nominate a Paul/Rubio/Cruz who embraces the most extreme of the teabagger lunatic idiot planks of a solid teabagger platform and gets his ass kicked from coast to coast and Mexican Border to Canadian Border and makes their 2014 congressional majorities into substantial minorities (at least in the senate).

In the post 9/11 thought process of the Republican/teabagger party, I know that I'm supposed to be a good little docile Democrat and go away have myself a good cry as I thank God for the wisdom of the Republican/teabagger party. Once again, FUCK THEM! Once again, we're right and they're wrong. I never have and never will cede them the fight for what is right and what is fair in this country. If there are any democrats who DO want to behave like the Republicans/teabaggers and little Chuckie Todd would like, then I say grow the hell up and learn some courage of your convictions!

My basic messages to our new Republican/teabagger majorities in general and to our national embarrassment of a tragically 2nd term governor here in Maine are first, FUCK YOU and second, fights are always in rounds...2014 was just 1 round. There are plenty of rounds to go. The 2016 round has just begun!

That's my 2 cents and quite possibly over priced at that.

And almost all of the White House press corps. Did you hear the questions by Ed Henry and Major Garrett yesterday?

They are going to put all the pressure and all the blame on President Obama if he does not go along with Mitch McConnell and the Republicans. Joe Scarborough was pushing the same prop-ag this morning.

The media plan is set and the shameless tools are putting it in place.

"dripping with condescension", he said. The media onslaught is in full attack mode, like a murder of crows...

If you are a Democrat, he will HATE you. If you are a Republican/teabagger, he will LOVE you.

Personally I think that Democrats should TRY to antagonize him. Limbaugh has been the defacto Republican/teabagger leader since Bush the first carried his overnight bag into the White House for him circa 1991. FUCK HIM and anything he has to say!
