SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO…there was a little ole midterm election this week, and the fallout has been better than the entire lineup of CW shows combined. I myself worked the polls for the first time this year, and it was a blast seeing inside the machine.

I worked two precincts in our middle class suburb that is predominantly white, but also quite diverse in terms of demographics. Thing is, we’re mostly home owners in this area of Indianapolis (Franklin Township), and we’re mostly a hard-working, unpretentious bunch. So we had a LOT of voters come in. More experienced poll workers said they’d never seen anything like the turnout in these two precincts.

It was mostly older people earlier in the day, but we had out fair share of black voters, white young professionals (yuppies), and quite a few immigrants, especially business owners. A lot of these folks brought their kids in to watch them vote, at which point I would practically shriek, “Jr. Voter in the house!” and plop a big fat sticker on them somewhere. It was a festive atmosphere in general.

But better than watching the amazing process of ballot casting unfold in rapid real time has been the reaction afterward. I watched CNN wait as long as they could to make certain announcements in the hopes that some miracle would happen. I finally had to go to bed at 10:00 Tuesday night, before they called the race for Ernst. Woke up Wednesday to find she’d won by 7 points, as the Iowa Register poll predicted, the one all those bastages on the east coast kept calling an “outlier.” Outlie THIS bitches!

The bluest fairy in a bad wig and the best couture has to offer could not save Dems from the shellacking they took this time. Colorado? Maryland?? Maine? Massachusetts? ILLINOIS???? That last one might be the sweetest victory of all.

And then of course, there’s the schadenfreude. I know it’s evil, bad, and intoxicating, but dang it if I don’t love, love, love watching the all the post-game confusion going on at all the most popular watering holes on the left. At the great orange lake of flaming cheeto, this is on the Wreck List: It starts out well enough, and well-intentioned, saying that painting the GOP and conservatives as C-A-Ray-Zee might not be a winning strategy, and maybe they should look at themselves.

Scapegoat hunters in our ranks are the Democratic party’s worst enemies.  We’ll never fix a comprehensively broken party until we acknowledge that it’s broken, and start figuring out what’s wrong and what we can do about it.  Ralph Nader didn’t get us in this mess.  Faithful Democrats, supporting the lies and the empty promises and the bait-and-switchery of our party, bear the greatest responsibility for the mess.  If you follow the leadership off a cliff, don’t be surprised to find yourself falling.  We need to form up our own parade and march in a different direction.  If the “leaders” want to lead, make them scramble to the front of our parade.

[…]

Our political system is comprehensively corrupt, and it is almost impossible to participate in it, certainly not as an officeholder, without wallowing in that corruption.  In Washington those who have held themselves apart can be counted on your fingers.  Both parties are creatures of this corruption, and their bases know it.  Ask any average American if they think politics is corrupt, and you’ll get a resounding “No shit!” nine times out of ten.  Conservatives know this as well as liberals.  It’s only devout party followers who seem blind to the obvious.

You better watch it there, fella. You’re starting to sound like you drink the tea… But then guess who they want to lead their Hit Parade?

The Democratic party will not change until it has absolutely no other choice.  The leadership has proven over and over again that it would rather lose to a Republican than permit a progressive Democratic insurgent to win a primary.  Losing to a Republican doesn’t threaten the leadership’s perks and position, for some unfathomable reason.  Seeing the Warren wing gain power within the party is a much more direct threat to most of their jobs, on the other hand.  The chimera of fighting the battle in the primaries is a lost cause:  they’ll make sure we lose.  When was the last time we won one?

Progressives have to learn to play both the inside and the outside game.  We need our Elizabeth Warrens  […] The only way we’re ever going to take over the Democratic party is if enough catastrophic losses weaken the hold of the FIRE puppetmasters enough for a progressive movement to swoop in.  We need to build that movement, outside the party veal pen, where it won’t be co-opted from the start.  Progressives haven’t built their Tea Party.  We’re behind the Republicans, whom we deride as stupid.  

Oh yeah! Lizzie Warren of Harvard, who has matriculated all those wall street barons this poster decries as the source of political corruption and thus his activist tears, is going to mount a horse in a Pocahontas wig and lead the way to populist nirvana and a progressive takeover of the Dem party. Not a smidge of recognized irony that this is the same formula they thought Obama was using, when all the while he was selling them out, and delivering them to the Wall Street Farm.

One thing you can be sure of after consulting the results of the attached poll is that the last thing DK Dems want to do it work to GOTV; and the second to the last thing they want to do is support Hillary Clinton. So some things never change.

Picture1

But hey! They can now take the tea party somewhat seriously, since they are so deeply envious of its stamina, and think yeah, maybe they’ve got a point after all.

large young frankenstein blu-ray3

You just have to go over there if you have the stomach for it and see the wailing and gnashing of teeth for yourselves. They’re to the point now where people are openly blaming Obama and saying he is the worst leader of the dems they’ve seen in their lifetimes. Well, welcome to the party, mofos. What took you so long?

    Love this piece Lola. The big cheeto is awash in “can’t quite grasp cause and effect”. The figuring stuff out phase is going to go on for a while for Dems. Thinking is difficult for them over emoting. The size of the loss has them reeling. Some of them are just figuring out that the party has very serious structural damage that will affect it for decades. If the progressives put up too much of a fight the party will collapse like the Whigs.

  13. elliesmom says:

    Put Elizabeth Warren on the national stage, and she’s going to look like a deer in headlights. She does OK working a small room of people who agree with her, but she’s not ready for prime time as they say. She was cocooned in her run for the senate. Never put in front of an audience who might ask her a difficult question. Shielded from the Cherokee Nation f2f. She never appeared on the Howie Carr show. I don’t know if the mainstream media can provide her with the kind of cover they gave Obama. A lot of her shenanigans are already out there, It’s too late to seal all of her records. People aren’t nearly as afraid of being called sexist as they used to be about being called racist. Since the race card has been tattered and torn, I don’t think the sexist card is even worth as much in a trade as it once was, and it has never been worth much. I say bring on Crazy Rabbit Warren and let the right have at her. I use to worry she’d make it through the gauntlet, but I’m not worried anymore.

      She has no charisma . She is as dull as dishwater and tame as stale toast .

And now, compared to some of the up and coming women from the Republican party , what little appeal she might have fades completely .

    What a day! As I predicted, when I went to see the VA doctor yesterday he said I needed to come in today for labs. I had tried going in Monday for labs but he hadn’t made an order for any yet.

    So when I went in today they drew about 2 qts, 1 little tube at a time. First they drew a bunch, then they made me wait 15 minutes a drew one more, then another 15 minutes later they drew a final one. At least the lab tech knew what she was doing so there was no exploratory probing of my arms to try to find a vein.

    The worst part was the TV in the waiting room was set on some flip this house show.

  16. elliesmom says:

    The Democratic pundits seem to be waking up to something a lot of us have been harping on since the Democrats lost the House, and the leadership refused to step down. The Democrats have no bench. Tuesday’s Republican wave not only took the Senate and statehouses across the country, it ensures Republicans of fresh new faces to work their way up the ladder for a generation to come. Come on, the R’s sent an 18 year old woman to the West Virginia legislature. She’s got another 50 years of possible political life. The Democrats have no “farm team”, and after Tuesday no farm to start one one. While I don’t believe the pendulum won’t swing back, there’s not a lot of talent to help make it happen. One of the things I argue with my niece about is who is really the party of old people?

    • WMCB says:

      I’ve been harping on this awhile, Ellie. Republicans have lots of fresh new faces. Even their blogging/activist/punditry class has lots of cocky new breed conservatarians.

      The left and the media love to harp on the “party of old white men” for GOP, but the reality is they are getting younger and more diverse by the day, and the Democrats are looking more and more like “the party of pasty tired old boomers clinging to past glory.”

      The media can only hide this for so long.

      • Anna Belle says:

        I was shocked by the number of women on the ballot in our precincts. There were only two races where there was not a female name. So I did my thing and went down the columns voting for vag. There were a lot of races where women faces off as candidates, too. It was awesome!

  17. WMCB says:

    Great piece, Lola. I’m also heartened by the fact that MOST (though not all) of the rank and file Republicans and conservatarians I am seeing are not all giddy and on a bender of rah-rah GOP. They are thrilled to have kicked the nasty prog asses out of course, but have zero illusions about their own party, and are ready to fight and push, not whine and have tantrums.

    The progs are flailing around for a savior or a new unicorn dream, while the right is seasoned, clear-eyed, hunkered down, and stone cold realistic.

    Some of it is the difference in mindset between collectivist and individualist, IMO. Collectivists are powerful when they have momentum. But they fall apart when the collective fails. It’s like if they have no massive group movement to feel a part of, their identity pales to the petty.

    Individualists weather failure of their leaders/larger group better, I think. Because their identity was never “collective” in the first place – not in the way it is for progs.

      They haven’t learned a damn thing. Sneering at all Americans who are not hipster urbanites is a big part of what got them into this mess.

  22. The Klown says:

    And it begins:

    The Democrats Have Two Choices Now: Gridlock or Annihilation

    McConnell’s next play is perfectly clear. His interest lies in creating two more years of ugliness and gridlock. He does not want spectacular, high-profile failures that command public attention — no shutdowns, no impeachment. Instead, he wants tedious, enervating stalemate. McConnell needs to drain away any possibility of hope and excitement from government, so that the disengaged Democratic voters remain disengaged in 2016…

    All the foregoing brings us to two conclusions, both of them disquieting. The first is that Democrats stand almost no visible prospect of attaining a government majority. The structural advantages undergirding Republican control of both chambers of Congress are so imposing that only extraordinary circumstances could overwhelm them. Democrats managed, briefly, to gain control of Congress when the catastrophe of the Bush presidency created two successive national wave elections in their favor.

    Only that sort of freakish event would suffice. And Democrats might notice that, since winning back Congress requires a backlash against the president, their “positive” scenario requires first surrendering to Republicans’ total control of government. As long as Democrats hold the White House, Republican control of Congress is probably safe — at least for several election cycles to come.

    The second conclusion is simpler, and more bracing: Hillary Clinton is the only thing standing between a Republican Party even more radical than George W. Bush’s version and unfettered control of American government.

    • elliesmom says:

      If Hillary Clinton has any advisers who tell her the truth, she has to be having some second thoughts about the “Clinton brand” still having enough market share to get her to the White House. Did anyone she and Bill stumped for get elected? I mean, they weren’t even successful in Arkansas. She and Warren together didn’t get Coakley a bump.

    if women are only important for their vaginas and whether or not they can kill future generations and not their brains we are deep trouble.

    I have listened to the BS for years. I am sick of it. How many women fought for the right to vote, the right to won property. the right to study. the right to a decent paying job and none of those fights involved their vaginas rather then their brains.
    to see the phony feminists reduce women to their vaginas angers me a lot.

    “abortion rights ahead of the ERA. We have never recovered.”
    ****
    ERA was part of the Republican Party platform for 40 years and passage supported by Eisenhower and Nixon. Congressional support was mostly Republicans and Southern Dems. and blocked by Union financed Northern Dems. This stuff gets really confusing to the Progs whose history lessons include the chapter on how the Democrats freed the slaves.

    • elliesmom says:

      Unions were the most afraid of what the ERA would do. They convinced Kennedy to backburner it and replace it with “The President’s Commission on the Status of Women”, which concluded women were doing just fine. Kind of like Obama’s “Council on Women and Girls”.

    I did a “blogaround” to some of the places I used to hang out in 2007-2008.

    With some creative legislation keep Ds away from the polls (proof of citizenship, no early voting, no out-of-state college students voting, etc.) as well as the power to keep their current favorable districts, the Rs have every advantage they need. Of course, the Ds will scream about RAYCIZM, but that card has been played so often that it has no value.

    My blog post tonight is about Democrats’ impotent rage over manufactured White rage. Did you know that Senate election turnout wasn’t much lower for the 2010 midterms than it was for 2008? Of the 129 million who “voted” for president in 2008, only 62 million voted for a Senator.

    Did you know that in 2010, only 1.15% fewer people (61.8) voted in Senate elections but 0.8% MORE Democrats voted for a Senate candidate than in 2010?

    Democrat Senators got more total votes in 2010 than in 2008 and they still lost. Suck it, party establishment.
