Who cares about lowering the deficit? Did you not pay attention to anything during the campaign, and then the election results that came in last week? We wants our free $h!t. You worry about your deficit or whatever that is. But do it on your own dime and your own time. I want healthcare, I want condoms, I want abortions, I want food stamps, I want cell phones, and I want them now. And I want you to pay for them. The deficit? As far as we're concerned, that's a made up number. What difference is a deficit to me. Just gimme my free $h!t and be on your way.

This sort of misinformed caricature of those who voted for Obama is exactly what I see as what went wrong for the GOP in this most recent election: they saw 47% of the population as a giant "taker" strawman that bore little resemblance to reality.

There are a whole lot of us who really need to get out more.
