We do vulgar bump-and-grind victory dances in the end-zone.
Here’s the thing: The Stench started off by telling 47% of us to go f*** ourselves; the GOP then told 51% of the population to get raped and have the baby. At the convention and beyond, the GOP’s best fetus-fondling God-bothers told 10% of the population that you are not “real” people and could not get married. Then, as the cherry on top, the GOP told the fastest growing demographic that they were going to check their papers any time that they see someone who doesn’t look American, whatever that means.
Is anyone surprised that for the most part the old Confederacy went for Willard?
Our pal SoyBlo got it exactly right in 2008 when she told her party that they have already lost the battles of the future.
What we are seeing is a dinosaur party thrashing about in the tar pits not realizing that their fate is already sealed.
This was an epic beat-back: more women won election to the Senate than ever before, including an openly gay woman. Marriage Equality passed at the ballot box in three states (Maggie Gallagher is weeping as she defiles yet another Crucifix, Exorcist-style); and soon you will be able to smoke dope in public in Colorado and Washington.
It was a night of progress, but our work is just beginning. All the pressure has to continue. Now is not the time to become complacent.
But do enjoy today, and for gawd’s sake: spike the ball in the end-zone, and start doing your most tasteless dance of unbridled joy! We won the right to be bad winners!
High-five to Scissorhead Matty Boy for getting the electoral college and states exactly right using Math. Dude is a genius.
