The aftermath of the election has been enlightening, to say the least.
Basically, the big population centers re-elected Obama. Taken to the extreme – the people who “live like rats” re-elected him.
If you look at a map of the electorate by county (the smallest division I’ve seen to date), most of the country is bright red (Romney). Every map that I’ve seen (like in this great video from Wired.com)
shows the discrepancy in the vote. It makes a certain amount of sense, actually – those areas where people are packed in like sardines have always relied on “guvment” to keep their perverse lifestyle from falling apart at the seams.
Jut like rats in a cage.
And now, much to my chagrin, all this crap is coming out that, if revealed prior to the election, could have affected the outcome (hmmm, wonder why that is). From Eric Holder (the anti-Labrador) holding back info about Petraeus, to Petraeus’ denial of the so-called “stand-down” order, to a new rumor I heard today about missing arms that puts “Fast and Furious” to shame. I’m telling ya, this administration is as corrupt as it gets.
And, even better…Obama is thinking about that ultra-rich “bastid” John Kerrey for Secretary of Defense.
What I’m having a hard time understanding – all of the polls out now seem to indicate a strong conservative opinion of the future (extend tax cuts, more drilling, etc). So, if so many people apparently approve of the general Republican agenda, then WHY did they vote Obama back into office?
Something is amiss, and I can’t quite seem to put a finger on it…
