After the Ball Is Over...

...after the break of morn,

After the dancers' leaving, after the stars are gone,

Many a heart is aching, if you could read them all—

After the Ball.

That will be 11/3.

But the GonzoLefties are forewarned.

"We have an electorate that doesn’t always pay that much attention to what’s going on so people are influenced by a simple slogan rather than the facts or the truth or what’s happening.”--John F'n Kerry

Obama said Americans’ “fear and frustration” is to blame for an intense midterm election cycle that threatens to derail the Democratic agenda.

“Part of the reason that our politics seems so tough right now and facts and science and argument does not seem to be winning the day all the time is because we’re hardwired not to always think clearly when we’re scared,”

That's their story and they're sticking to it. The electorate is ignorant, scared, frustrated, tribalist, and probably "bitter."

HT: Zero

Yes, it's true. As an Engineer (not the kind that drives the train), I always ignore science and fact. Always.

J. Strupp said...

Yes. This is true for the most part.

Sadly, Struppster being a shill for the Leftist religion has no scientific background and has no FN clue.

We can see November 2 from my little corner of NC... Our early voting started Oct 14. In our district R's outnumbered D's 51 to 30. In polling, the I's were leaning heavy R. We had the #1 and #2 counties with the highest vote count in the state and we only have the 10th largest city...

What does all that mean? It means that our enthusiam is huge. It means that we are poised to send a 7-term Blue Dog home for good and take a seat held by the Ds for 140 years. It means that there is a strong shot of the Rs taking both the state House and Senate for the first time since 1898.

Get your surfboard guys. Because if this wave builds like we are seeing it here... Kowabunga!

Yeah, because the prospect of crushing debt, lasting unemployment, and government bureaucrats invading every single aspect of your life tends to make people wary.

If Democrats and lefties wonder why they're losing so big, calling the electorate a bunch of stupid bigots is probably a good place to start.

That word is getting tossed around quite frequently.

Let me define "tribalist" as meant by the Left: racist.

Science and fact don't win the day, but we'll be canceling the NASA Mars program.
