dattel: Please, this is the “people are stupid” excuse site. There are other ones devoted to “election fraud”, “not conservative enough”, “msm influence”, “union money” and “played to nice”. I think you would fit in with the “not conservative enough” although you are one of the few people actually arguing that the candidate didn’t appeal to enough people. So you are probably going to get rejected everywhere.
It was only 7:15 last Tuesday evening when my daughter, who works in conservative journalism, texted me to say the election was lost. For a painful four hours, I watched the results confirm her early analysis. When it was clear the president would be re-elected and Republican challenger Mitt Romney had lost, I took an over-the-counter sleep aid and went to bed.

On Wednesday, I began a weeklong home improvement bender, drowning my sorrows in a five-gallon bucket of latex paint the color of vanilla creme. But there was no painting over my pessimism about the future.
