Dumbfuckery du Jour

I don't know whether to thank the Cons or scream:

Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) has conceded defeat in her Republican primary, losing in a major upset to right-wing challenger Joe Miller. The primary was held last week, with Miller taking a 51%-49% lead in the election night count to the surprise of many observers. However, the final result was delayed by an extended period of absentee ballots arriving, with many of them counted earlier today.
So, this leaves us with yet another race in which the Dem will face not a staunch conservative lackwit, but a batshit frothing insane conservative fucktard who thinks Social Security and Medicare are illegal, would condemn states to fiscal ruin, and says "we haven't heard" that humans are responsible for the current drastic global warming trend.  The "we" he's talking about may not have heard about it, but only because their heads are so far up their own asses all they're hearing is the sound of their own wind.

If I felt better about Dems' chances this fall, I probably wouldn't mind so much.  But the American public is in a throw-the-bastards-out mood, and I'm not sure many general election voters are paying attention to more than the letter after the candidate's name.  This means that we may end up with a herd of certifiably crazy morons and one hell of a feedback loop.

Those who don't believe things can get much, much worse are in for a very rude shock indeed if the Crazy Caucus finds its way to the halls of power.

Indeed. Yes the boat is leaky but that doesn't mean I'll dive into the waves.

The cure for the situation is better Republicans, not the abandonment of the Democratic party. All we can do from our side of the aisle is keep the lights on.
