So, I've been reading tweets from republicans that want to move to Canada since Obama's victory. The logic of moving to a more liberal/social democrat country because Obama is fascinating. If these Americans are serious I wonder where they will move when they realize Canada has gun control, gay marriage, legal abortions, and single payer healthcare.

If you try to explain that too them you'll just get blank looks followed by anger. Same for when they threaten to move to Australia.

I can't take a party that has Sarah Palin and Paul Ryan as VP candidates seriously.

What happened to the party of Reagan and Bush Sr.? These were respectable, honorable men even if you didn't agree with them.

Now? All you hear from is the Rove's, Mconnells, Cantors etc.

Why do people even call them "Republicans"? Those "Tea Party" people and all those other nuts are clearly Mussolini's black shirts.

They are just a bunch of insane fascists. Romney and Ryan are such scumbags that you can't even find the words to describe it accurately.

They are not "Republicans" - they are black shirts and brown shirts.

They can move to Iran or Saudi Arabia, that's a conservative theocratic state that's right up their alley...fags are put to death, adulterers are publicly whipped, sluts are stoned to death, drug addicts are executed, women have no rights, thieves get their hands chopped off...what's not to love?

Of course they would have to deal with the whole Muslim thing

Ohio really did go to President Obama last night. And he really did win. And he really was born in Hawaii. And he really is legitimately President of the United States. Again. And the Bureau of Labor Statistics did not make up a fake unemployment rate last month. And the Congressional Research Service really can find no evidence that cutting taxes on rich people grows the economy. And the polls were not skewed to oversample Democrats. And Nate Silver was not making up fake projections about the election to make conservatives feel bad. Nate Silver was doing math. And climate change is real. And rape really does cause pregnancy sometimes. And evolution is a thing! And Benghazi was an attack ON us, it was not a scandal BY us. And nobody is taking away anyone's guns. And taxes have not gone up. And the deficit is dropping, actually. And Saddam Hussein did not have weapons of mass destruction. And the moon landing was real. And FEMA is not building concentration camps. And UN election observers are not taking over Texas. And moderate reforms of the regulations on the insurance industry and the financial services industry in this country are not the same thing as Communism.

Listen. Last night was a good night for liberals and for Democrats for very obvious reasons. But it was also, possibly, a good night for this country as a whole. Because in this country we have a two party system, in government. And the idea is supposed to be that the two sides both come up with ways to confront and fix the real problems facing our country. They both propose possible solutions to our real problems. And we debate between those possible solutions. And by the process of debate, we pick the best idea. That competition between good ideas, from both sides, about real problems in the real country should result in our country having better choices, better options, than if only one side is really working on the hard stuff. And if the Republican party, and the conservative movement, and the conservative media is stuck in a vacuum sealed, door locked, spin cycle of telling each other what makes them feel good, and denying the factual, lived truth of the world, then we are all deprived, as a nation, of the constructive debate between competing, feasible ideas about real problems.

Last night the Republicans got shellacked. And they had no idea it was coming. And we saw them, in real time, in real humiliating time, not believe it even as it was happening to them. And unless they're going to secede, they're going to have to pop the factual bubble they have been so happy living inside, if they do not want to get shellacked again. And that will be a painful process for them, I'm sure, but it will be good for the whole country - left, right, and center. You guys, we're counting on you. Wake up.

There's real problems in the world. There are real knowable facts in the world. Let's accept those and talk about how we might approach our problems differently. Let's move on from there. If the Republican party, and the conservative movement, and conservative media are forced to do that by the humiliation they were dealt last night, we will all be better off as a nation. And in that spirit, congratulations everybody. Big night.
