Politics, life, and other things that matter

Aptly said, sir

Hunter at DK:

Going down the list of numbers from PPP’s post-election poll, there’s quite a bit of encouraging news to be had. David already covered two of the specifics, but here they are again just to review:

49% of GOP voters nationally say they think that ACORN stole the election for President Obama. We found that 52% of Republicans thought that ACORN stole the 2008 election for Obama, so this is a modest decline, but perhaps smaller than might have been expected given that ACORN doesn’t exist anymore.

This is outstanding news. Despite not actually existing, ACORN appears to be just as effective at secret conspiracies to steal elections as they were when they did exist.

And these are the people that Obama is supposed to compromise with. What happens when reality and anti-reality collide?

    According to the Raw Story “The sperm count in French men dropped by nearly one-third between 1989 and 2005 and the quality of sperm also declined, a study said Wednesday.”

    This occured while Acorn was still active.

    Who says brainwashing doesn’t work then a course it would help if the bat-shit-crazy people had a brain. The plan to divide Main Street is working well I would say, how sad for those that care.

    It all comes back, again and again, to the Right’s rabidly avid use of “false witness” in their ideological wars. Their media bubble allows them to create elaborate fantasies about anyone or any group, fantasies that are accepted as fact and which become almost impossible to eradicate. Studies have found that rightwingers will, when confronted with debunking facts, cling to their lie-based (un)reality with even greater tenacity.

    If we could only get them to obey their own 10 Commandments, they wouldn’t be half the assholes they are.

      I like to think of them as our Ten Commandments, Wege. Right-wingers certainly don’t have a lock on avoiding idol worship, not coveting one’s neighbors maidservant, or avoiding bearing false witness. They might have an edge on keeping the Sabbath rest, as long as one doesn’t count gunning the car and swearing on the way out of the church parking lot as unholiness.

    You try to stay as far away from the epicenter as possible, and just hope it doesn’t happen too violently.

    But since a Dem won the Presidency last year, it’s reasonable to expect the same sort of nakedly seditious activity and rhetoric we saw the last time. And the time before that.

      Stormcrow says, ” it’s reasonable to expect the same sort of nakedly seditious activity and rhetoric we saw the last time. And the time before that.”

      Like, say, talk of secession?

      • Stormcrow said

        Talk is cheap.

        I don’t start to really worry until the talkers start getting seriously ready to do something about it.

        Existing precedent makes it clear any such action is going to generate unreasonable amounts of spilled blood.

      • No way will they — or at least their leaders — ditch the immense Federal gravy train they currently have. The Secesh-spewers are just grifters milking the rubes.
