Have you heard? There's a new dance craze sweeping the empty stadiums of the Republicans' 2012 presidential campaign! It's called "the urban turnout," and it explains President Obama's win with coded language that moves gracefully across the dance floor…
>Former Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan says that his party lost the White House in 2012 because so many "urban" voters went to the polls, not because Americans rejected his Medicare and other budget policies.
"We were surprised with the outcome," the Wisconsin Republican told WISC-TV's Jessica Arp. "We knew this was going to be a close race. We thought we had a very good chance of winning it. I think that the surprise was some of the turnout, some of the turnout especially in urban areas, which definitely gave President Obama the big margin to win this race."
Everybody dance along! The steps are: 1. Slide to the right; 2. Slide to the right; 3. Slide to the right; 4. Bump against the right wall; 5. Slide to the left; 6. Lose the election; 7. Point to a minority demographic; 8. Cha-cha-cha.
The best thing about this dance is that only white people can do it.
