The post election whining has begun! Here are a couple of coulda-woulda-shoulda articles that caught my eye.
First, the Wall Street Journal continues its never ending crusade for open ended amnesty. Amnesty now, amnesty tomorrow, and Amnesty forever! ¡Estimados Republicanos!
But wait! National Review has a rebuttal. Polling shows that only 7% of Hispanics were turned off by the immigration position of Republicans. Instead, they mostly hated everything else the party stands for: Why Hispanics Don’t Vote for Republicans

Why Romney lost: The Unmitigated Disaster Known As Project ORCA

I commented on another bloggers website why the Republicans were such sore losers.
One of my favorite columnists, The wittiest doomsayer in the Anglosphere, Mark Steyn, explains that we’re screwed, but at least he does it well: Reality doesn’t need to win Electoral College
Looking for an escape plan from Obama tax hikes? ‘Super-Earth’ Alien Planet May Be Habitable for Life
Although I imagine the trip will take many election cycles.
Anyway, this twitter message sums up how I feel about the election!
