four years ago conservatives, fundamentalists and neocons across the country were gloating.
tonight ... not so much, as testified by these assorted anecdotes from what could be a clinical casebook of right wing ideological collapse, collected from the
out-patientscommenters at the blog free republic:
stage 1) shock and denial:
Fox has done a terrible job in their reporting tonight. They are so proud of their computer equipment, they just can't run it. Brit is all over the place. Their website is worse
Has California come in? That's a lot of electoral votes. ANd we're giving it to Obama, because of Ohio exit polls?
DO NOT PANIC. THE POPULAR VOTE IS A VIRTUAL TIE.
MCCAIN CANNOT CONCEDE - CHALLENGE LEGALLY VOTE FRAUD EVERYWHERE, CHALLENGE LEGITIMACY OF BHO, HELL THROW IN THE UNNATURAL CITIZENSHIP. FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT! (DOESN'T OHIO HAVE TO WAIT 10 DAYS TO VERIFY ABSENTEE BALLOTS OF LIKE 200,000?)
stage 2) pain and guilt:
Welcome to the United Socialist States of America. I am so ashamed of Americans tonight.
If only those born in the US had voted, we would not be losing tonight.
Oh Lord, HAVE MERCY, PLEASE!!!!!!
I am now feeling sick!
stage 3) anger:
ACORN has succeeded in stealing this election for the terrorist in chief.
Thank You W. - Hussien is your legacy! May your retirement be as bad as the Huseein Presidency will be for us. For the rest of you Bushes .. stay out of republican politics forever.
So much for Rove's PERMANENT MAJORITY.....
....the Hispanic vote went big for Obama....
...New Mexico is no longer a red state.....
...Colorado and Arizona are trending left...
how will we ever win an election in the future? Thank you George W. Bush and John Mccain for ruining our party with your open borders policy.
stage 4) depression:
Capitalism lasted longer than communism but in the end everyone settled on socialism.
Bush should have at least gone down swinging and holding to his principals (That's what I hated about him in his first terms but what I miss about him right now)
It's over. It's been over. I have been the victim of my own wishful thinking. We're getting a terrorists buddy instead of a patriot. It is depressing.
Allow me to be the first to say with sadness: ALL HAIL KING HUSSEIN
I for one, welcome our new socialists overlords.
Now, where's that bottle?
stage 5) acceptance and hope:
This is what you should all do now:
Hug your wife and kids
Pray to God and understand he has a plan
Keep your guns close
Get a good accountant to shelter your money
It is true, that I never concieved such a day during my lifetime. But I still have faith in God, my family and friends.
They dug their own grave. The same goes for bipartisanship. Either way, the Republicans will never be relevant again without conservative leadership. Palin in 2012 is a start.
Anybody know a good militia I can join?
Amerika has just elected its first communist president - in fact, with a communist Congress, a complete communist government. Time to start understanding how to organize and lead a resistance movement.
With the union stuff coming we'll never be able to get back the congress. How long before Sharia law is implemented?
The only saving grace I can think of now is that HRC does have proof that he is not eligible to be POTUS.
And there's always the possibility Israel acts tomorrow and the world nuclear war is on!
