What a spectacular and stunning loss for the GOP. Record numbers of women and minorities (muslims, gays, latinos, asian-pacifics, blacks..) were voted into office on Nov 07, and were for the first time in history a majority of each party’s caucus in the House of Representatives.
For fast-tracking this inevitable reality, I give my heartfelt thanks to the misinformation campaign of Karl Rove, the Faux News spin machine, and the most vile members of the GOP who hijacked the platform to preach dogma, promote hate and blacklist those with opposing views. These charlatans have failed their party and America by keeping their believer base cocooned in a bubble of lies and fear. Without facts to inform GOP strategy, it’s advantage team blue. That this outcome came completely out of left field, and rendered Republicans so speechless that night is icing on the cake for those of us who respect science/math and have been increasingly shocked at the growing contempt for facts over the past decade. They need a reboot to stay relevant cuz America badly needs a viable opposition party (parties!).
