Very Tough Election Night
« on: November 03, 2010, 01:44:23 am »

Feingold and Grayson losing... that's the toughest.

Guess we'll see how the country goes for the next two years as we pursue a more conservative agenda.  Unfortunately, we never pursued a liberal one...

California is still ahead of the curve.  It could have been worse.

I know!  These people think that voting the republicans back is going to do any good?  The corporate brainwash media seems to be working just fine.

Too bad about Feingold, he's been at least a small source of hope in the senate, but never could pass much of his agenda. How many people have been in there that long that have not been corrupted?   I mean, the guy has been in the senate for 18 years and is only worth about $500,000!

Wisconsin is  weeping.

But Jay is right in could've been worse.

Today it's the Giants!!!

Perhaps that's the problem, people looking to the government to do something to "please" them.

I can't watch the tea party people. How can anyone not see they're totally full of crap.
CUT SPENDING!!!
Ever see someone ask them to specify exactly what spending they think they're gonna cut? Major tap dancing.
We're gonna cut that spending. But we're not gonna touch Social Security, Medicare and the military.
Yeah, right.
I'm gonna quit drinking. Except for beer, wine and vodka.
Idiots.

Feingold is a tough loss, but Grayson shot himself in the face.

Time and time again.

I don't know how effective he is in terms of actual results in government, but he essentially campaigned against himself. His final ads were offputting and made himself look like an overbearing asshole.

The guy actually sent voters the other way; both with his out-of-context 'taliban Dan' adverts, and with his "Big Brother" ads in the last week. -He actually made HIMSELF look unelectable, creepy, irritating and shady in a 15-second clip.

While I may not like his opponent, I shuddered to contemplate what wacky crap he'd get up to next. I don't think i can recall seeing anyone commit political suicide so needlessly.

overall i am not certain that a little bit of gridlock is a bad thing.

i am infuriated about Feingold losing, though.  his standing alone in the Senate to vote against the Patriot Act is probably the most courageous political act i've seen in my adult life.

and Grayson earned my respect for how hard he grilled the Fed.

i think the bigger issue is that the average voter is so ignorant that he almost brings it upon himself.  2 years ago voting out all the republicans was going to solve our problems.  2 years later voting out all the democrats is going to solve all our problems.  and in reality both parties support an imperialist agenda.  both parties cede power to the Federal Reserve.  both parties support runaway governmental spending.  both parties kick the can down the road when it comes to dealing with social security.  etc etc ad infinitum.

meanwhile i bet that Joe Average can't name more senators than he has fingers, and can't identify which amendment is which in the Bill of Rights.

46% Yes to 53% No is at least pretty close on the pot initiative.

Pure misinformation was the key to GOP victory.  A morally bankrupt informationally shallow media blitz.

Truly a watershed moment in our history.

The new 'pubs will take office mid January, so I figure by the end of February they'll have everything fixed and there will be a Cadillac in every pool.

Ignorant, yes. Brought upon himself, no.

Print media editors and TV media producers (and their online extensions) are paid quite handsomely to make sure that all issues are presented to the masses with minimal useful content and maximum focus on contentiousness. Their exemplary record for leaving the most obvious and most germane questions unasked on any given issue is quite astounding.
