Barry wins! Wow, how the hell did that happen? I'm even more stunned by the fact that the odious DemocRATs kept their Senate majority. Did not see that coming. At all.
I thought about it all day today. Clearly all the stuff I talk about here and all the stuff on drudge and on the web generally hasn't made any impression on about half the population. I can riff about ten reasons off the top of my head why this is a frickin' disaster for the USA and double-plus ungood for Canada too... but its going to bounce off half the people out there like a tennis ball off an engine block.
I'm pretty confident in my disaster prediction, given that the DOW dropped 300 points this morning as soon as the market opened. Everybody with a clue knew that was going to happen. Everybody I know has a clue. Most of the people I've met in the USA in the last four years have a clue. Hell, the gnarly Mexican gang dude I met in a car lot in Phoenix in 2009 had a clue.
So who the FRIG are all these clueless goofs that voted for Obama?
Well, lets start in New York. All the people I know in New York voted for Romney. Because they can tell shit from shinola, mostly. Who voted for Barry? HALF THEIR NEIGHBORS.
How about Staten Island? After getting flooded and then SHAFTED by Barry and NYC government, FEMA, Red Cross, the power company, the electrical union and etc as covered this last week here at the Soap Box, almost exactly half of 'em voted for "Thank you sir may I have another!" 49.9%Barry, 49.1% Mittens, 0.8% the Interstellar Party of Peace and Love or whatever.
That seems stupid to me. How does half a population manage to suspend reality so massively that they vote for the guy who came to their wrecked homes, made a speech and then flew off to Vegas. Leaving them to the tender mercies of bureaucrats so inept that they still don't have gasoline available. Been a week now. Total cluster-fuck, still voted for more of it.
I don't have a clue. Really don't get it.
But I kinda need to. Because if we less-government-more-freedom types don't find a way to breach the Reality wall and make contact with the cranium space of that other half the population, we are all going to be living in Greece North real soon.
