    The worst thing about having so many liberal friends is knowing one of those squirrelly bastard's vote canceled out mine.

    Legalized dope, legalized gay marriage and a decisive Obama win? It's the Layman trifecta of awesome!!!

    To be fair, Romney didn't lose the election, he "self-deported" himself from Latino votes.

    Look, if you want to get elected, just promise to start the Avengers Initiative. It's the one thing all Americans love.

    ? Arune Singh (@arune) November 7, 2012
    Am glad Obama seems to have won, that marriage equality won, that rape apologists didn?t. Would love to see more compromise less division.

    Marriage equality, legal drugs & a chance for conservatives to take their party back from Donald Trumps & Victoria Jacksons. Good show.

    ? Tim Seeley (@HackinTimSeeley) November 7, 2012
    So, tonight we lost. Tomorrow I'll begin to think about my hopes for a bunch of truly scrappy Republicans in the House. Four years of heat.

    My sense of relief must be a mere fraction of what my American friends are feeling this morning.

    I don't think it will be called "gay marriage" for too much longer-- just "marriage." #Equality

    Ethan Van Sciver is right. The Republican turd could not have been polished farther. They did the best you can on such hideous platforms, and lost, rightly.

    Congrats, President Obama!

    I've got to agree with Seely's viewpoint. The biggest problem the Republicans faced this election cycle was that, as a party, they've gone completely off the rails. Their only defining characteristics to many are hyper-Christian views, outmoded ideology and social agendas and a complete misunderstanding of the current trends with regards to peoples' personal lives.

    Fiscal conservatism's always going to have its supporters, but it's damn near impossible for them to get anywhere when they insist upon tying it to extreme right social conservatism, it's going to have trouble getting anywhere.

    What's the state of the Tea Party these days? As someone who likes there to be a sensible left and a sensible right to give people a decent choice, I found the Tea Party very dangerous for the GOP.

    They have a core group of crazy. And they get out and vote, even for run-off votes in a primary. (They're about the only ones...)

    Sanity seems to have won out in the end (except for in Donald Trump's case, judging by his tweets).
