I saw an article that made me feel a bit better about the election. It’s called “How the GOP lost my vote” by Paul Hsieh. In it he says how he’s voted Republican in previous elections and likes limited government, but didn’t this year because of Republican social issues. The thing is, social issues were less a focus this presidential election than all those previous, so that can’t be the real explanation. Much more likely is this guy just suddenly became retarded for no reasons and started hallucinating social conservatives chasing after him. That goes with the theory this is just a retarded election cycle from which no larger trend will emerge. And, anyway, what can the Republicans do to appeal to retarded, hallucinating voters?
