I Just Can't Help Myself

In their own words...  You can't make this stuff up.


Rush Limbaugh - “I went to bed last night thinking we’re outnumbered.  I went to bed last night thinking all this discussion we’d had about this election being the election that will tell us whether or not we’ve lost the country.  I went to bed last night thinking we’ve lost the country.  I don’t know how else you look at this.”

Todd Akin - “There’s one class in this country: Americans. We also believe that the source of America’s great strength is our faith in a loving God, who allows courageous people the freedom to pursue the unique dreams that each of them have. And we believe that the Constitution is not a list of suggestions. We believe that ordinary people built America. We believe you built that.”

Donald Trump - 

"We can't let this happen. We should march on Washington and stop this travesty. Our nation is totally divided!" Trump tweeted. "This election is a total sham and a travesty. We are not a democracy!" 

Six minutes later, at 6:40 a.m., Nugent went from mad to sad:

Newt Gingrich  -“We all thought we understood the historical pattern and the fact that with this level of unemployment, with this level of gasloine prices, what would happen. First of all the President did a very, very effective campaign. Second, I think that the country was looking at a different set at of things than we were looking, and I think Republicans are going to have to take a very serious look at what happened and why did it happen, and why were we not more competitive at the presidential level…John Boehner and the House Republicans do control the House of Representatives, which is first in the Constitution. And which has a right to say, ‘Gee, we have a mandate, too.’ And the question for the President’s going to be, ‘Is he going to really sit down and listen?”

Glenn Beck - “Man, sometimes God really sucks…So I sat there on my set last night and what I said, I think about this time yesterday, was I caught myself halfway in the middle of a monologue and I think I cleared my throat and I said, I’m biting my tongue here to say things that I ‑‑ hopefully I won’t have to say tomorrow. But I got up yesterday at 3:00 in the morning and I knew. And I couldn’t sleep and I started to say my prayers and I got up and kneeled down by the edge of my bed and I knew that ‑‑ or I suspected that my mind’s not God’s mind, and the peace and the comfort that he had given me and so many of my friends was not about an election. God’s about a bigger picture than an election or a candidate. God is about the freedom of mankind. God is about the Constitution, which is a divinely inspired.

Just like those Christians that rolled up the Dead Sea Scrolls and put them in pots. I don’t know what happened to those Christians but they hid them. They hid them and they preserved them because it was important. The Bible was never wiped out, but the people who originally wrote the Bible were scattered. I don’t know what the future holds for the country, I don’t know what the future holds for business, I don’t know what the future holds for the dollar but I will tell you this: Do your own homework.”

Victoria Jackson - 

But not all is lost:

And then the requisite conspiracy theory:

My favorite quote was when Megyn Kelly asked Karl Rove, who was still trying to make a case that Romney was going to win even though every network had called the election for Obama, “Is this just math that you do as a Republican to make yourself feel better or is this real?" A question they should ask themselves far more often!
