NRO

I appreciate the sterling if pitiful efforts of my comrades to clutch at straws these last few hours, but, on this grim morning after, I fear the most salient analysis comes from Sir Richard Mottram, Her Britannic Majesty’s former Permanent Secretary for the Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions, albeit speaking in another context:

“We’re all f***ed. I’m f***ed. You’re f***ed. The whole department’s f***ed. It’s been the biggest c**k-up ever and we’re all completely f***ed.”

Words to ponder.

    Well, if it’s come to that, then I’m going to serve up some of the revenge Obuttfuck was talking about. We’ll see who’s better at it.

    I’ve written and erased a number of responses to this post ranging from very polite disagreement to the scorched earth nuclear option.

    I do understand how utterly hopeless the situation may seem to many. We all have mood swings and need to vent; writing provides a release for me, even if I don’t post my most depressed and angry thoughts. You too may find some relief in just writing what you really think and letting it sit for a few days, just to see how you feel later. It works for me.

    I do worry that the dextrosphere is wallowing in self pity a tad too much, but it’s only been a couple days. A period of grief, or maybe shock, is normal after a loss.

    One thing to remember is that as bad as it looks, the future is not ordained. We can’t be certain how things will play out and many have mentioned Nixon’s reelection as an example. We have to be more resilient now than ever before and trust in our values as Conservatives. No matter what you hear, the election was not a condemnation of Conservatism or even of the GOP – if it were, it wouldn’t have gone down to the wire.

    I do find fault with the NRO article simply because it has no point, other than to reinforce despair and demoralize us. It’s certainly not funny.

    @Xavier, I shook off my gloom and got started early today by firing off a scathing response to stupid Feinstein’s challenge for people to come up with a reason not to tax the $250K and above category. I used to be civil. Not anymore.

    Vote was astronomical for Obama in some
    Philadelphia wards

    In a city where President Obama received more
    than 85 percent of the votes, in some places he
    received almost every one. In 13 Philadelphia
    wards, Obama received 99 percent of the vote or
    more.
    Vote was 99% or more where republicans were thrown out.
    How many Romney votes were wiped out?

    No one can believe Obama won in a landslide.
    NO ONE

    I was going to congratulate Cardigan on his perspicacious headline, but then realized that it was Steyn’s.
    It figures…he’s not only very eloquent, he was born and raised in Montreal.

    And yes, Sir Mottram, ditto, ditto, ditto, and ditto!

    @cc and @Xavier–

    I’m thinking revenge through resistance and civil disobedience. And maybe some not-so-civil disobedience.

    We REALLY need to explore that “revenge” thingy. I know for sure that ANY entertainer, producer, recording artist or product merchandiser will not get one red cent of what is left over from my hard earned money. NOT ONE!!!!!!!!

    Ah Xavier – I do see Steyn’s humour in this – and it was most welcome given my grim outlook. Steyn merely points out what we ALL know – this was a BODY BLOW to our country – no stopping Obamacare and Zero now has more “flexibility”. How many of us have, since Tuesday, made some wild claim about giving up or being in the depths of despair. We vent, we say crazy stupid things. Then we re-group and keep fighting.
