So… the question of the day, according to the news, is “how did the Republicans fail to get the presidency this time around?”
Gee…. let me see…
You take a your most left leaning candidate (thus failing to motivate your largely conservative base)
You try to dress him up as a staunch conservative (thus alienating everyone else that’s not paying attention)
Oh, and you fail to throw the guys who claim things like “women can’t get pregnant from rape” out of the damn party (thus giving the opposition plenty of ammo for their claims that Republicans are women hating racists who don’t believe in science)
I think the real question is:
How did the Republicans expect to win?
