LESSONS FROM THE ELECTION #1---The FOX NEWS WHITE (especially white men) MASS-PSYCHOSIS can no longer win national elections! Romney's psychosis: shellshocked! #2---For the first time ever, TRICKLE-DOWN ECONOMICS WORKED! The wealthiest 1% Americans spent almost $1 billion of personal money on TV ads to defeat President Obama. This money, normally squirreled away overseas, instead stimulated the US economy! #3---The Citizens United decision, where the Supreme Court declared “ALL THE FREE SPEECH MONEY CAN BUY,” led to Republicans picking their worst Presidential candidate! #4---The Republican TAXCUT-AND-SPEND philosophy of the last 30 years won elections, but destroyed the conservative brand and left our country with mass debt.

Let's not sugarcoat it: we got our teeth kicked in on Tuesday. Sure, we added governorships and held our ground in the House, but we went backwards in the Senate and lost to an out-of-touch, incompetent, petty man who centered his campaign around Mitt Romney's bank account and Big Bird. We didn't get beaten by Bill Clinton in a great economy; we got beaten by another Michael Dukakis in the midst of a terrible economy. On the upside, if people have ever wondered what Jimmy Carter's second term would have looked like, then they're about to find out.
