MSNBC’s amazing Rachel Maddow last night detailed many of the benefits of the re-election of President Obama, and had a come-to-Jesus conversation with the GOP. If you are a liberal, a progressive, a Democrat, you must watch this because it will make you so happy you will start jumping up and down uncontrollably.
If you are a conservative, a Tea Party supporter, a Republican or Libertarian, you may want to have someone tie you into a chair and remove throwable objects from arm’s reach: you need to watch this because it’s time your 17th century beliefs go away.
It’s time for the right to join the reality-based world.
Ohio really did go to the president last night.
And he really did win.
And he really was born in Hawaii.
And he really is -legitimately- President of the United States.
And the Bureau of Labor Statistics did not make-up a fake unemployment rate last month.
And the Congressional Research Service really can find no evidence
That cutting taxes on rich people grows the economy.
And the polls were not skewed to over-sample Democrats.
And Nate Silver was not making up fake projections about the election
To make conservatives feel bad.
He was doing math.
And climate change is real.
And rape really does cause pregnancy sometimes.
And evolution is a thing.
And Benghazi was an attack on us.
It was not a scandal by us.
And no one is taking away anyone’s guns.
And taxes haven’t gone up.
And the deficit is dropping, actually.
And Saddam Hussein did not have weapons of mass destruction.
And the moon landing was real.
And FEMA isn’t building concentration camps.
And UN election observers aren’t taking over Texas.
And moderate reforms of the regulations on the insurance industry
And the financial services industry
Are not the same thing as communism.
If you are a conservative, a Tea Party supporter, a Republican or Libertarian, and you cannot or refuse to agree on facts, like the earth is essentially round, then you have doomed America, including you children, to what will become a civil war.
Make your choice.
