I couldn't have said this better. This blog entry was being widely quoted before the weekend, and appeared in the Sunday Tribune. 
It absolutely nails the totality of GOP/Tea Party b.s. and their hermetically sealed culture of denial. 
Any italicized parts reflect my emphasis.


An Open Letter to Republicans: Your Country isn't Coming Back

By koolking83, Thursday at 8:01 pm

I'll be brief...

November 6, 2012.

That was to be the day you guys  “took the Country back”, the day you “restored America”, the day the aberration that was the Election of Barack Hussein Obama was officially rectified.

Well that day came and went, and let me be proudly unequivocal in saying what the events of that day-of that day you eagerly awaited for 1463 days-plainly illuminated:

YOUR COUNTRY ISN’T COMING BACK.

Make no mistake, while the problem lies with an outdated, baseless message which is unappealing to the collective mind, heart and soul of this Country, your messenger…your candidate, was nothing short of awful--the embodiment of everything that is wrong with YOUR Country, insatiably greedy, invariably self-interested, a walking contradiction whose actions are unmistakably in conflict with his purported religious beliefs. He stood for nothing other than himself, (emphasis mine) and just as no liberal Media Member or any unfair “smear campaign” caused it. ..no debate performance in Denver could change it.

That’s who Mitt Romney is….

And that’s what YOUR Country is

But it’s not what the United States is.

On Fox News on Tuesday Night, as the polls closed, as the results came in, as the unimaginable…agonizing reality that was the electoral map trouncing of Mitt Romney became undeniably clear, what did Karl Rove do? What did Bill O’Reilly do?

Deny Reality.

Attempt to invalidate that which is UNMISTKBLY VALID.

In their Country…in your America…a born to privilege wealthy beyond comprehension White Businessman, does not lose a Presidential Election to a Black Guy who was raised by a single mother. No..nor do Black Voters, or Hispanic Voters, or Young Voters, refuse to be disenfranchised…refuse to get out of line…refuse to accept a faulty voting machine…refuse to accept the insulting assumptions of a “LIKELY VOTER MODEL” designed by Karl Rove or Rasmussen or Gallup.

No, in your Country, those voters stay home.

In your Country, Gay Marriage is shot down at the ballot box, and women voters don’t mind having their health and bodies controlled by men in Washington, so long as you promise them “jobs”-regardless of the fairness of their pay.

And in your Country, voters don’t approve of shared sacrifice, of the idea of collectivism….No, in your Country Voters don’t cast their ballots with the welfare of the guy or woman next to them in mind---they don’t vote for universal prosperity and equality, they don’t vote with a heart full of compassion and a mind with a vision for a more fair and a more inclusive Country.

That’s your Country….

That’s what you sought to “restore” on Tuesday Night.

And I couldn’t be happier, and more proud to say…on behalf of my Country, on behalf of the United States of America

You Failed.

dahhh... dah-dah-dum!
