You know, His Imperial Majesty’s initial reaction was pretty much in line with the “the nation has changed, it’s now a vast conglomerate of whiny pussies holding out for freebies and that’s why Romney lost” approach right up until he came across this particular data point that, quite frankly, has us scratching our head.
So SCOAMF got 10 million fewer votes than in 2008. We get that. It’s kinda hard to see how people could be more enthusiastic about voting for the leftist swine after 4 years of his disastrous misadministration, rising unemployment, rising inflation, foreign policy clusterfucks etc. but, please, then explain to us how, exactly, Romney magically ended up with 3 million votes less than the doddering, mumbling, incompetent fuck that was McVain?
We don’t know how well y’all remember 2008, but we distinctly remember that the enthusiasm for McVain was a great deal less than for Romney this year. As a matter of fact, we’re hard pushed to remember any enthusiasm at all that wasn’t directly tied to Sarah Palin, and we’re not talking about our own enthusiasm either.
Yet that somehow translates into 3 million less votes, just enough to drag SCOAMF across the finish line after he lost 10 freaking million votes?
We’re going to need quite a bit of time to grok that one.
Meanwhile, discuss among yourselves.
UPDATE: We’re not the only one thinking something is off here. Great minds etc.
