Looks like Lie-vanka, Kay-lie McENEMY, Tiffany Tr666p, and all those interchangeable, blonde dumFux Nooz nazi bimbos are gonna have to return to their previous jobs as porn-store backroom fuck dolls. Sad : (

They're all going down with the shithead. Well, glug, glug.

All the Tr666p rats fleeing the Tr666ptanic are panicking that no one will return their calls, so they’re busy rewriting their resumes to say something more respectable, like they were either in jail or involuntarily confined in a mental hospital for the last four years.

no one I'd rather laff my way
thru the Apocolypse with than
you, Chas. thanks for the Schlog.

oh and trumpf won ALL the
US's poorest counties as well.

the Wealthy ones?
not so much.

something to do with the poorly
Educated that trumpfy just Loves.

There ain't gonna be no coup.

̿President Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen might have the answer. He predicts that "Trump will not return to the White House after spending Christmas at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.̿"̿

That is a pretty darn good insight.

5

And Enumclaw... the stuff that creates wingnut gun-humpers also creates craven horse-fuckers. That does make sense according to occam's razor.

Fucked hardly sounds like barely fucked.
Fucked hard sounds better to me.

Getting voted out after 1 term qualifies as a shellacking if US presidential history is any guide, though Trump underperformed by metrics that would be embarrassing even without considering he had the benefit of incumbency and still managed to blow it. Losing states that haven’t flipped for decades also meets that criteria, particularly in an increasingly polarized electorate. Losing to a candidate who took >50% of the vote. Losing amidst a national crisis, a time when voters crave continuity & stability. Et cetera.

People haven’t adjusted their analysis since election night and it shows

11

@2 Kristofarian: You sound like a Hoover Republican, or maybe even like Trump. Being rich = being smart? Getting the vote of impoverished counties is bad? FDR didn't think so. If the Dems still cared about the rural poor (which includes the majority of African-Americans in the south, btw) as much as the party used to, the senate would be overwhelmingly Democratic right now. Perhaps Biden can help turn around that poverty.

14

12 don’t forget the florida mail bomb guy who was living out of a MAGA van

Trump has been inspiring terrorists even while he was in office but I guess they don’t count bc they’re too stupid to pull it off

15

@7 we both know that the house seat apportionment is deformed by the Republican cyborg gerrymanders of 2010. And that democrats get more votes but land less representation. The question is why you pretend not to.

16

It's a foregone conclusion at this point that republican presidents cannot win the popular vote and house democrats consistently win more votes than republicans but for some reason we are asked to believe it's the democratic party that has trouble securing a "mandate", which is itself an entirely meaningless term under any circumstance, but that's beside the point. Trump barely scraped through in 2016 but governed like every last voter in the country worshipped him.

19

Yes hillary got shellacked in 2016. This has been the consensus opinion for years, in no small part bc she lost several historically democratic states to a thrice-bankrupt gameshow host, but the fact that you disagree with this assessment would suggest “shellacking” is not the objective fact you seem bent on arguing it is.

20

What are you even trying to say. You argued that biden doesn’t have a mandate but also that all presidents govern as though they have one, which seems to be a really stupid way of agreeing that a “mandate” is a completely meaningless concept

21

It’s almost like you’re just concern trolling with completely inane disputes over the meaning of vacuous terms while feigning to dislike a 1 term president who failed to enact any of his campaign promises beyond a tax cut for rich people

22

At a minimum "mandate" should be reserved for candidates who get more votes than their opponents.

By the same token, losing the popular vote but eking out an Electoral College win is the equivalent of winning on a free throw from a questionable foul at the end of overtime. That is not "shellacking" territory.

23

@8:

Here's an idea: instead of being a fucking mewling cry-baby and insisting it's OUR responsibility to reach out to YOU, why don't you put on your big-boy pants and do some conciliatory reaching out yourself? After all, YOU FUCKING LOST - it's not the job of the winner to apply salve to your butt-hurt ya' fucking cockwomble.

24

Republicans need to step the fuck up. Quit being little spineless bitches and take back your party from the biggest loser American has ever seen. Da fuck is wrong with you. You gonna sell out the Stars and Stripes to a shitty Trump flag? Is that American? NO. Get with the program and ditch that worthless piece of shit. Otherwise, yes, you are truly terrible people. I don't care why you voted Red, until you get that piece of shit out you are all the party of Orange and you are completely and utterly full of shit. Worry about your own damn party, you guys are FUBARed.

What's it going to fucking take huh? How many more people have to die? How long do we have to stay beholden to this fucking foreign virus that you all spread willingly and might as well own? You say it was made in a lab to fuck with us? Well, great job stopping it! Great job fighting it! Great fucking job keeping us afloat by playing into the hands of everybody on earth who ever wanted to see America suffer! You're a bunch of pitiful worms who are too afraid to admit that you could be wrong! You think dying in the ICU is better than being wrong? You can't learn shit if you're never wrong, it's fundamental to make mistakes! Jesus tap dancing Christ on a cracker, get real and step the fuck up! Sick of this fucking shit. Fuck you all and quit being fucking losers, be Americans again before it's too late you shitbags.

25

@23- you make a good point. Telling that here in our state, Culp only got 25% of the vote in King County. Republicans have to do better than that if they ever want to win state-wide office again.
similarly on the national level.

Republicans have written off the coasts and the cities. Fine for them, but they still need to be competitive in the suburbs, and their pseudo-libertarian 'fuck the government and the elites' is not what suburbanites want to hear.
Suburbanites want good schools and all the amenities that make for strong real estate values and good communities like good roads, ample parks and recreation, some access to mass transit, access to good health care.
So yeah, definitely time for Republicans to start offering up the olive branch, they are the ones who need to stop scaring people. For christ sake they have spent the past 10 days sotto voce threatening a coup.

26

Sigh. Already the trolls have reemerged to make sure Democrats and Progressives work to appease them. Let's not fall into this trap again. Please keep in mind how Republicans broke every norm, tradition, and rule they possibly could to push their agenda at all costs. They normalized open corruption and treason for this. Conservatives revelled in cruelty and mocked us and called us names. Many of them couldn't wait to pull guns on their fellow Americans. They loved it when federal agents attacked American citizens. They deny a fair and lawful election. Many support a civil war.

So, fuck them. Who gives a shit about a "mandate"? Those days are over. Progressives have learned from you, Conservatives. There is no need for "inclusion" of your idiotic opinions.

They ran this country into the ground and gloated about it. They've been wrong about everything: coronavirus, BLM, Trump's reelection. All of it.

It's time for grown ups to be in charge. Marginalize these fools in government and public discourse as much as possible.

@8 What are Republicans and Conservatives going to do to make ammends for the damage they've caused to this country? How are they going to seek reconciliation?
What are they going to do to persuade the majority of this Americans they're willing to walk away from disinformation, conspiracy theories, and bad faith power grabs and get serious about restoring the US?

Elections have consequences. The Dems should do whatever they want. To those who disagree, we say Fuck Your Feelings. Go back to your safe space snowflakes.

27

Trump is turning into the Black Knight from "Holy Grail" - "'Tis but a flesh wound!"

28

"What's left? A hairbrained Electoral College scheme that can only result in an explosion of protests around the US."

I'm not sure if that was intentional, but in this case, this modified spelling makes more sense when one is referring to Trump specifically.

@8: That's some very impressive mental gymnastics. Because progressives maybe won't continue to choose to be fucked by this game of "bipartisanship" that the GOP has shown no interest in playing for 20+ years, THEY are suddenly the Nazis? Not the ones that are, you know, actual Nazis? Impressive!

@24: "You gonna sell out the Stars and Stripes to a shitty Trump flag? Is that American? NO. Get with the program and ditch that worthless piece of shit. Otherwise, yes, you are truly terrible people."

They are, because they already did. They proved it daily during Trump's tenure, and they continue to prove it while they go along with this "election fraud" nonsense.

30

29

It's a Facts2Support sock puppet.

31

republicans can deficit-spend into oblivion and kill hundreds of thousands of people and win elections by negative-millions of votes and insult veterans and refuse to denounce nazis etc etc etc but democrats have to grovel for the right to govern on the agenda voters elected them for

32

@8 "Heck Charles, he might wind up 52% of the vote when this is over with the rest of the country bitterly divided against him. That's one hell of a mandate. "

Yes, it most certainly is. Here are the last seven races where an incumbent was beaten:

William Henry Harrison (1840) 52.9%
Benjamin Harrison (1888) 47.8%
Wilson (1912) 41.8%
FDR (1932) 57.4%
Carter (1976) 50.1% *
Reagan (1980) 50.7%
Bill Clinton (1992) 43.0%

Ford was the incumbent, but he was never elected president. I don't list the presidents who lost their nomination, nor do I go back before 1840 (an arbitrary cutoff).

So yeah, this is the second biggest win by a challenger in the last 150 years, blowing away Reagan's mark. It has been 88 years before a challenger got these kind of numbers.

It is also higher than a lot of races where there is no incumbent. It is especially high when you consider the percentage of the populace who voted. In that regard, it is probably the third highest for a non-incumbent (being beaten only by FDR and Ike). Remember, back in the day, very few people voted (only white men who owned property). So the big blowouts of the 18th and 19th century are nothing compared to what Biden achieved. A very large part of the population voted for him -- the type of numbers you rarely see unless someone gets reelected by a landslide.

Any way you cut it, this was a huge victory, and Biden definitely has a mandate.

33

Trump voters would probably like it if Democrats told them to shut the fuck up and gave them universal healthcare and a national minimum wage of $15 hr.

@ 8,

"What began with a puckered asshole descending a gilt escalator in New York ended with his lawyer ranting next door to a 10th-rate merchant of buttplugs in Philadelphia. As far as American about-faces go, it’s about as good as we could expect and arguably better than we deserve. It’s also why fears of a Trumpist seizure of power seem unfounded. The pantomimic attempts at one are all so pathetic and ridiculous that even the incumbent’s most fanatical base seems too demoralized and spent to take them either literally or seriously.

The long con continues, even if its dupes can’t quite keep up their end of the bargain anymore. MAGAt mobs mobilized to terrorize vote-counters in Maricopa County, Arizona, vanished within 24 hours, according to a BuzzFeed journalist. In a nation 'bitterly divided,' it seems, the bitterest still have better things to do for the weekend."

@9 - do we know anything about the actual manner of the fucking? I must admit I did not see the movie.

@25 - the fact that Culp got ANY votes in the best-educated county in the state shows a serious problem. May be more people lined up to fuck those horses than I thought.

And why hate on the Space Station?

37

Also, I've heard more than enough from these Republican neigh-sayers. Biden won. Get over it.

Of course it's not a quake on Vancouver Island.

It's the whole West Coast Subduction Zone ripping in half. The volcanoes and quakes will make us all think giant forest fires are warm and toasty.

43

I'm still waiting for an update on Wally Gator, last seen out roaming the Mar-a-Lunatic golf course. Will Griz's ultimate Trumpty Dumpty prophecy actually come true? If so, I would call it sheer poetic justice served. A sad consequence for the poor alligator, but......billions among us on Earth would cheer. Wally would go down as a world hero.

Trump Death Cultists, MAGA tools, Loren's Culp-rits, and blindsided horsefuckers: IT'S. OVER. I hope this degree of butt-hurt spells the death of the GOP.

@stix Bugologist -- "If the Dems still cared about the rural poor (which includes the majority of African-Americans in the south, btw) as much as the party used to, the senate would be overwhelmingly Democratic right now."

had the damn Dems not moved so far 'right' in the corporatige direction (forced there by an Activist Supreme Court who said fuck Precedent and declared Big Money to be Free Speech and Crops to be peeps, too, Friendo, possibly Dems'd G more of AF about those needing hands-up, and offer them damn Daycare, Healthcare and Education. you know, what Progressives are wanting. for Us.

but. no.
so, yeah.

45

corps, not Crops!

46

@44 While I agree with you about the Dems moving right, that started long before the Citizens United decision, with Bill Clinton proclaiming moving right to attract corporate money to be the "3rd way." The last Dem presidential candidate who even tried to get the rural vote was Jesse Jackson back in '84. That rural vote was the key to the progressive policies of FDR and Lyndon Johnson, and it's still the key to the Senate. Universal high-speed internet would be a winner there now, and have the bonus of letting big parts of the country have access to more than Fox news. My point was that your writing off big swaths of the country solely because they can't afford good schools is the same kind of condescension that got us to the point where a Democrat could lose to an insane person like Trump in 2016, and to where the Dems actually lost seats in the House last week.

47

'writing them off'?
nonsense.
Educate them
(see: @44).
for starters.

"Universal high-speed internet would be a winner there now."

yeah. but the peeps those poor counties Vote for don't wanna compete with Monopolies -- they love a good monopoly. it's their Citizenry they Disdain.
