"You've spent a lot of time looking up facts and crunching numbers to help justify your faulty views and convince yourself that you have an idea of what's going on, congratulations."
You know who else hates incessant, irritating "facts" and "numbers"? The Democratic and Republican parties (albeit namely the latter). Like you, they choose to believe what is going on based on their gut and intuition and morals.
Also, here are some of the pundits who predicted a Romney landslide, for posterity: click.

There was an absurd amount of conspiracy theories going on about poll data this year. There was even a website dedicated to "unskewing" polls (www.unskewedpolls.com, a site which has now been taken down) where it would remove "the bias" from national poll numbers. Of course, these figures, once "unskewed," showed Romney leading with +10%.
The man behind the project has come out today and admitted that he is a moron. But at least he admitted it, so there's still hope for him.
And of course, the national polls were dead-on this year, just as they usually are. This is what happens when people whose only political participation is reading Infowars think they know more than people with degrees and scientific models dating back half a century.

Didn't Starbucks get it right again? Best poll ever.

The octopus saw his shadow was funded by corporate conglomerates so I knew Obama was going to win.

Usedtabe: "I can't wait to see all the black people chimping out if Obama loses."
"I think the white people are more likely to chimp out if Romney loses."
Usedtabe: "Yeah, that won't happen, you'll never see that."

"We should have a revolution in this country!"
No chimping out here. And Obama did end up winning the popular vote, but I guess I can't expect truth from a man with a comb-over.
Those tweets have since been deleted.

Finally white people are waking up to what works. Start a few riots and whine a lot and maybe you'll get your way.

My favorite is the last one. It's just so Pinky and the Brain. "Next time...THE WORLD!!"

I would laugh my ass off is Trump put his money behind something like he's talking about. Until then, shut up. He sounds like some retard trying to get the peasants to cause damage that he's not prepared to do himself when he's in literally the best position to start something if he was serious about it.
I love you too boyfrien.

I don't smoke and I barely drink, save for social occasions. It's just such a stupid standard to have alcohol legal and not marijuana. I really hope DoJ will not be dicks about this, but I wouldn't bet money on it.

I bet if we swapped him out with 70's Lex Luthor, it would take years for anyone to even notice.

Nate Silver predicted 50 out of 50 states correctly last night. Sales of his book are now soaring off the shelves post-Election. But again: The peasants know better than people with degrees and facts.

Generally speaking - Degrees do not equate "knowing better" y'know.
11-07-2012, 05:16 PM
Yes it does. Not to be a dick about it (which of course means I'm about to be a dick about it), but a bum off the street rambling about politics is not going to have the insight of somebody with a PhD or even a Bachelor's in the field. The problem with this world is that nobody respects people who have put in their time into knowing what the hell they're talking about. Everybody thinks they can be on an equal footing without putting in the work and hitting up that level grind.

So people with degrees in Art...? <_<
In keeping with me saying 'generally speaking'
