Well, that sucks. I don't know how I'll handle four more years of this bastard.

I don't know if we'll ever get the voting system fixed.
But the one thing the Democratic party has to do is figure out how to get our natural constituency voting for us again.
And that's poor people.
"Flyover country" people.
Everything that does good for them, we did. Liberals. The Republican party hasn't done a damned thing for them, but has somehow convinced them that liberals are elitists, and that a man born in Connecticut, who went to Yale and Harvard and private schools and was a cheerleader in college, who never ran a successful business, who is best friends with the Saudis, who is a multi-millionaire, is one of them.
That's what we need to fight.
Oh, and the media. Fuck them. All of them.
The rich liberals (and there are a few, and I'm talking to you, George Soros) need to set up the same sort of communications network the neocons have. We need our own network (with their dead ratings, surely MSNBC is cheap, right?) and our own think tanks and our own spokespeople.
Remember when the Republicans cloned a bunch of skinny blondes to go out and repeat talking points over and over? Well, it worked.
So let's do it to. Time to fight fire with fire. No more "nuance" or any of that crap. Time to fight hard.
From this point on, I have no patience with anyone who voted Republican. None. I will be a complete asshole about it.
Because that's what they do, and it seems to work.
