Quote of the Day and Democratic Venting Open Thread
“Dear Democrats: You managed to lose the House in historic proportions to a party whose strategy was to harness the inchoate anger of old white people so stupid that they don’t sense the inherent contradiction of screaming about a smaller government whilst cashing their federal checks. You are morons. Please find someone who can play this game and put them in charge of your electoral strategy, because what you’re doing now isn’t working. Also, henceforth, every time you whine about Fox News and shadowy financiers of the Tea Party, we get to beat you with a hammer. This is the political landscape now. Deal with it.”
— John Scalzi
And on that note, I’m opening up a thread here for those of us at OTB who are not thrilled about the GOP victory, as inevitable as we knew it was going to be.
Republicans and Tea Partiers. You won. Smile and be happy today and please brag anywhere but here. Those of us who didn’t want you to win are going to bitch about it here. We will take your dancing jigs of victory on the other posts. Here, leave us alone with our bottle of whiskey and our Merle Haggard.
