Gobsmacked!

Last night a huge sigh of relief could be heard across North America and many other parts of the world, the Republican party lost pretty badly.

They not only lost badly, they really hadn't seen it coming.
President Obama was re-elected by a good enough margin to nullify many complaints that the GOP will come up with in the week's ahead.

And I will add that there was one more handicap, the electoral suppression being perpetrated by that same GOP in many state legislatures.

Now, I am not one of those who ever got caught up in the fantasy that Obama is somehow some great progressive hope. He's a middle of the road moderate in many ways, with some extra weight to the right on all fiscal issues. Corporate America has actually done very well under his watch, despite all their whining and carrying on to the contrary.

But back to the GOP and their very own media outlet getting caught with their pants down, as this fascinates me to no end. This video is hilarious, it shows the FOX talking heads going from giggling assured-ness early on, to total panic late in the evening. Ya. They is Fair and balanced. YUP! See, fair and balanced? That means that one doesn't take sides. Was there a smidgeon of doubt that the loss was a crushing personal blow to those airheads last night? 

 

Rove spent $300 million on this election, I betcha his donors want their money back this morning. Heh. Sucks to be him today.
