But in all seriousness, somebody needs to explain to Republicans, as nicely and thoroughly as possible, how it came to pass that a skinny black guy with a funny name, who had just presided over four extremely tough years for the economy, was able be decisively reelected.




Someone posted Kathleen Parker’s comments on how the Republicans undermined their own candidate.

Here: http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/kathleen-parker-repub...

1. Republican Leaders Living in a Bubble
2. Primary Leeches
3. Pandering to Party nitwits
4. The self-righteous Santoriumites
( “Sit down. Legitimate rape? Put on your clown suit and go play in the street.”)
The selectivity of the Obama Campaign
(“Obama’s campaign was busy pinpointing specific voters, practically learning the names of their dogs, and buying ads in niche markets.”)
Marginalizing too many sub-groups if you add ‘em all up, you lose.
