    An amazing synopsis. Spelled out nearly everything that happened, why and what the GOP needs to do to creep back into the game. The only thing I heard that required more stress was the appalling amount of money a few wealthy donors spent, rather wasted, in pursuit of buying the election.

    Yeah, she nailed it. Will they listen? I think all they will hear is “blah blah blah you lost, blah blah blah you lost…”. The conservative mind is just closed. They need to get hit hard several times in quick succession to wake up to the fact that maybe, just maybe their thinking might be skewed.

    Right now they are thinking how screwed up everyone is for voting Obama in for a second term, not how wrong they were on the polls.

    Goosebumps from my scalp to my pinkie toes. I’m literally hugging my laptop. Rachel Maddow, you are my hero.

    I watched lots of follow-up analyses of what happened on election night on several channels and YouTube clips, but THIS is the definitive wrap up. Maddow hits them on every point, a perfect smack down – hitch-slap. Not sure where it went – it’s not showing above – but here it is. DON’T MISS IT!

    We are going to continue to have 1000 military installations around the world to continue our extracting resources from around the world and killing poor people of color around the world without a blip of protest from so called progressive. We are going to continue to undermine all efforts enact any actual, reality-based, practical solution to putting the brakes on Global Heating.
