According to the latest popular vote tallies, Barack Obama's gifts and the New Black Panther Party's GOTV efforts earned the president 65,331,508 votes compared to 60,698,920 votes for Mitt Romney. Those on the losing side of this result can find solace in the Five Best Counties for Conservative Republicans, where they may be cocooned miles away from the nearest NPR-listening, Prius-driving, Obama-voting liberal.
For the winners, however, there's the realization that 60 million votes is still a ton of people. Are there any places in America where a Democrat can be away from the Romney-voting hordes and experience the same level of blissful epistemic closure as their conservative counterparts? Yes. Yes there are.

Did you ever wonder why parents are always warning their children not to talk to strange people and to stay out of unfamiliar vans? Yes, it's partially so that they don't get kidnapped. But there's actually a much bigger danger. Strange people who hang out in vans tend to be liberal, and they would like nothing more than to infect you with their Big Government ideas.
But you all wouldn't listen, and now just look at what's happened to America…
Rush Limbaugh reflects on Tuesday's election results…
"We have to face some truths, we have to face some reality. We are outnumbered and we are losing ground. This was not a glitch. This is the trend."
Wait. So, is he claiming that the strategy of demonizing any person who took any issue with anything that any Republican did or said that he's been championing for the past four years is not successfully bringing people into the party?
I find that very hard to believe.

Welcome to week 9 of RAAL, the only place on the internet where your opinion actually matters. In last week's election, we put a liberal joke up against a conservative joke, and by a clear margin, the liberal joke won. Part of the reason was because one person voted twice. Some of you may think that's fraudulent, but I don't know how to count or what fraudulent means. Congrats to Laet Oliveira, AKA @LaetPO!
As this election season winds down, both Democrats and Republicans are getting more serious. But not here. This is a safe place where you can still laugh at yourself and your opponent. Take a look at the jokes below and vote as often as you like in the comments section.

Paul Ryan plans to help the hurricane relief effort by cleaning up in unaffected areas.

When my daughter sees me eating something she wants, she squeals at me and holds both hands out. It's so cute. She's like a tiny Democrat!
