    I guess they could cut services...like police, firefighters, road construction, basic utility upkeep, etc.

    That's easy: there aren't going to be any actual votes on secession. It's possible that some fringe state legislator might introduce a bill to that effect, but it'll never make it to a floor vote.

    I frankly find it pitiful that these 'petitions' are getting any mainstream news coverage at all. They're just internet petitions. It's akin to reporting on a pro-secession Facebook page getting a lot of 'Likes.' It might be newsworthy in the sense that it illustrates a dark corner of our current political climate, but it's absolutely meaningless in terms of actual support for secession.

    Cosigned. It's getting coverage because it gets click throughs from both angry Victoria Jackson types and left-leaning point-and-laugh types, which is a terrible reason to run a news story.

    Rightbloggers' Solution to Obama's Reelection: Bring Back Culture War and White People!
    It would be cruel to take too much pleasure in the rightblogger reactions to last Tuesday's events. Lest we forget, Democrats too have been known to lose faith in their fellow Americans when a big election doesn't go their way.

    [...]

    National Review's Jonah Goldberg attacked statistician Nate Silver's prediction that Obama would win, well, all the states he turned out to win. "The truth is that any statistician can build a model," sniffed Goldberg, perhaps thinking of the scale-model Munsters car he built in grad school. "They do it all the time... No doubt some models are better than others, and some models are simply better for a while and then regress to the mean... I'm not saying Silver's just lucky or shoveling garbage. He's a serious numbers guy. But so are" other pollsters who had Romney winning, etc.

    But came the election, and... wait a minute, that Goldberg article is datelined the day after the election. Well, lead times are a bitch -- let's see what Goldberg said later:

    If only married people voted, Romney would have won in a landslide. If only married religious people voted, you'd need a word that means something much bigger than landslide. Obviously, Obama got some votes from the married and the religious (such people can marry their interests to the state, too), but as a generalization, the Obama coalition heavily depends on people who do not see family or religion as rival or superior sources of material aid or moral authority.

    [blink] [blink] You know, maybe we should just forget about Goldberg altogether.

    [...]

    Which is why America has to wise up: After another generation of Obama, Greenfield continued, "there will be no law, just men with guns and newspapers, and generals in convenient positions, and suitcases full of cocaine in the right hands." Gasp! Will the cocaine never cease and the darkness never end in Staten America? "The question," reasoned Greenfield, "is whether a right-wing movement can emerge that will make the vast majority of small businessmen in this country feel as negatively about a Democratic president as welfare voters feel about a Republican president?" If only the GOP had nominated a candidate who could appeal to small business owners! Now we'll never know.

    Under the headline "America goes into the darkness," culture scold Melanie Philips wrote that "greatest satisfaction today over the re-election of Obama is not being felt in the Democratic Party," nor in the "corrupt" media, nor even among "the gloating, drooling decadents of the western left who now scent a great blood-letting of all who dare defy their secular inquisition" (though we can attest that they really enjoyed the fuck out of it). "No," thundered Philips, "the greatest satisfaction is surely being felt in Iran."

    [blink] [blink] Wut.

    The Obama administration, starring "Iranian-born [Valerie] Jarrett," Philips portrayed as happy to see Iran "complete its infernal construction of a genocide bomb to use against the Jews and the west. World War Three has now come a lot closer." She added, "four years ago, America put into the White House a sulky narcissist with close links to people with a history of thuggish, far-left, black power, Jew-bashing, west-hating politics" whose "agenda has been crystal clear from the get-go: to increase the power of the state over the citizen at home, and to neutralise American power abroad." And now that he's been reelected by those treasonous bastards the American people, said Philips, by the end of his second term "he'll almost certainly have succeeded."

    Look, what we said before about not wanting to be cruel? We take it back.

    I guess the answer is Yes. For Rove, Romney, Ryan, all the Rs.

    They do get high, on a slew of prescription drugs. Because if it's a prescription it's okay, if it's marijuana you should be on a chain gang in Texas.

    Yeah. It's not nearly what I'd call a meltdown.

    A post-election poll: The Pew Research Center asked that if the government fails to agree on a budget and goes over the "fiscal cliff", then who is to blame?

    A. Republicans in Congress?
    B. The President?
    C. Or Both Share Blame?

    Answers: A: 53%. B. 29% C. 10% (margin of error: 3.7%)

    Ball's in the GOP's court. Expect the president to call their bluff unless they back off of ending the Bush tax cuts on the Top 1%.

    I watched it live and it really wasn't a "meltdown", more like a stunning realization that what they thought and convinced themselves was going to happen didn't happen

    that the "real America" they thought they knew, they really didn't know at all

    and also Karl Rove realizing he is going to have to answer for why his SuperPACs didn't delivery as promised

    I'm not liberal, liberals have beliefs. I'm a democrat, the only belief I have is that republicans are wrong.
