With the President’s victory, I, nor the rest of the world, were surprised with the result. We were relieved, but not surprised. Everyone knew Obama was likely to win, we were just concerned that the right’s barely concealed voter suppression efforts would work. But the right was shocked and horrified. Karl Rove made an ass of himself on national TV by demanding that it wasn’t over when Ohio clearly went for Obama.
But why the big surprise? Sure, the national polls showed a “razor tight” race (the proper term is razor thin, btw) but the electoral college map never, not once, showed a Romney win. Ever. But, still with the shock! It’s almost like the right-wing is living in a bubble where they are only getting information they want to hear.
