With even leaders inside their own party calling for change and reform, Republicans did not have a great week. Fortunately, a silver-lining has just appeared over the storm clouds: Meghan McCain is threatening to leave their party. In an editorial for The Daily Beast, she writes…
"And if we don’t move forward, adapt, and become relevant again, the Republican Party isn’t going to survive. It will just continue to alienate more moderate voters like myself. If I don’t see some changes in the next four years, I’m going to consider registering as an Independent in 2016."
Bobby Jindal may be pushing you to be the party of the one hundred percent. And John Boehner may threaten to compromise with President Obama. But stay headstrong, Republicans! Just continue four more years of alienating minorities, women and gays and you'll finally be 100% Meghan McCain free.
That way, you'll only have to deal with only one McCain making bold statements on behalf of their party with the sole intent of getting media attention.

It should come as no surprise that our "Golfer-In-Chief"(®), with plenty of time on his hands now that he's no longer hanging out at rallies with his celebrity friends, spends his days standing around listening to charming engagement stories from his campaign staff…
How does this help the economy? Not only is he turning his back on traditional marriage (American couples meet online, not in person), but he's also apologizing for America's divorce rate! At least the five minutes he spends listening to these two give shout-outs to well-known Alinskyite Beyonce Knowles is another five minutes he can't use to ruin this once-great America which he won't admit is still great.
(Did you guys like my impression of every conservative blogger who, now that the election is over, has run out of things to write about?)

Election Day is like Christmas for Twitter, if Christmas were a nightmare where an mob tried communicating by yelling directly into each other's faces.
Even in this deafening din of nonsense, some tweets stand out, not because they are particularly good, but because they are completely and utterly unreadable…

Some jokes are written. Even if they are stolen by other people, it's not hard to track them down and find the original source. Other jokes form in the ether. They are the jokes forwarded to you by your parents, tweeted by fake celebrity accounts, posted on Facebook by the weird guy you meet at a rave (uh, why were you at a rave?).
These ether-jokes are everywhere and you cannot escape them. On Election Day, they reach unprecedented heights. Here are the most over-used jokes we found on Twitter. Or did the jokes find us?

I didn't think the stakes could get any higher than "most important," but they just did: David Axelrod and Joe Scarborough have placed a facial-hair related bet on the election…
