From Metafilter:

While you were re-electing a president:
Senator-elect Jim DeMint: Thinks that unwed pregnant women and gays are unfit to be schoolteachers.
Senator-elect Tom Coburn: Wants the death penalty for abortion doctors.
Senator-elect John Thune: Mr. School Prayer Amendment.
Voters in 11 states voted to ban same-sex marriage. The lowest margin was 57%-43%. The highest (Mississippi) was 86%-14%. Kentucky’s also bans civil unions. That one was 75%-25%.
The Senate will likely be split 55-45 in favor of Republicans, creeping closer to a filibuster-proof supermajority. Meanwhile, 89% of these guys are older than 65.
Enjoy your tax cut, America. You’re going to need it.


Question: Can an inarticulate warmonger who seemingly doesn’t care about the economy or workers and who is arguably the worst president in history be elected to a second term?

Answer: Looks like it.

Nothing has scared me more than thinking of that proctological orifice back in the white house for four more years without having to worry about being re-elected. Say goodbye to a woman’s right over her own body. Say hello to a draft in a year or so. Say goodbye to any job that can be done over a network or phoneline from a third world country. Say hello to more invasions of random countries in the Middle East under the guise of whatever lie the administration chooses.

And to anyone who says now is the time to stand behind our president, take a look on my left sidebar at the box labeled American Military Deaths in Iraq. Everyday that number is growing. Just because that cowardly symbol of nepotism that just got re-elected by the skin of his teeth again doesn’t mean that the debate stops. These issues still need to be argued publicly. Nothing could be more American then that, not lining up behind a man who has so far up to this point been one of the biggest disasters of American Politics.

And yes, I am bitter if you can’t tell. Don’t agree with what I am saying? Why do you think I called this blog Cynical-C to begin with?
