"Well, he got turnout. The president should get credit for achieving record-breaking
  turnout numbers from urban areas for the most part, and that did win the election for him.

Why Romney Lost the Election
by Fred Cedarholm


The Obama campaign heavily focused on voting behavior of various target segments of the population.
They relied heavily on voting patterns from prior elections, and made very effective use of the census
track data from the 2010 census. Demographics, breaking up the population into age, racial, and ethnic
groups would play THE key role.
From the 2010 Census data, Axelrod and company knew which districts had a predominance of these groups.
Their focus was on these districts nationwide, and they staged a major “get out the vote” campaign door by door.
Just about every “contested” state fell to the Democrats, and Obama “won” the preponderance of the Electoral
College votes. Right now, he also got a three million vote plurality of the popular vote.
The Romney campaign had a voter tracking computer system in place, but it had NOT been tested;
and it “crashed” on Election Day. If you looked at the one category/ classification of voters where
Romney had the preponderance of the voters support, it was in the white, over 65, married at least
25 years, gun owning, evangelical Christians demographic. If you looked at the crowd of invited
“supporters” at the Romney “victory bash” in Boston drinking wine and eating canapés, it was
noticeably different than the make-up of the ten thousand plus crowd which had gathered at
McCormick Place in Chicago on election night to celebrate an Obama victory.

‘All Up In My Snatch’ Graphic a Mistake

Yeah, I'd have to agree with that


Let's call it graphics gone wrong. The ABC affiliate in Denver said it was a “mistake”
to run an image of Paula Broadwell’s David Petraeus biography that listed the title as
“All Up In My Snatch” during a story on General Petraeus.

The image appeared during Monday’s evening news broadcast. The book’s actual title,
is “All In: The Education of General David Petraeus.”

“It was a regrettable and an embarrassing error,” KMGH-TV News Director Jeff Harris said.
“We are mortified this appeared during our 5 p.m. news broadcast. The editor pulled the image
of the book cover from the Internet without realizing it had been doctored.  We regret the error.

 Subject: Arizona

Hi Bart,

You need to add Arizonee to that list of states wanting to succeed from the Union.
And if we get New Mexico to go along we can extend Mexico 200 miles North.
I might want to stay though as everything is cheaper in Mexico, so I've heard.

Yeah, we got some real winners here. But I'm kind of lucky as my representative,
Anne Kirkpatrick a Democrat was elected to the House of Representative. 

Can you believe it? Arizona is still counting ballots.
Jesus H. C., I voted early 3 weeks ago and you're telling me my vote as yet to be counted?

Not a surprise, the RePukes (a.k.a. republicans) are in charge here
at the state level, how incompetent and stupid can they be.

Hammer away Bart!

These crybaby states couldn't make it on their own.
Look at Mississippi - they get $2.02 back from the government
for every dollar they pay in taxes - I say we cut them off. 

Goodbye. Jersey Shore
  by Gene Lyons


I also had vivid memories of a charismatic Rutgers professor, named Melvin Marcus, warning a lecture hall
filled with Jersey boys that allowing urban development on the state’s Atlantic Ocean front was dangerously
shortsighted, and that a day of reckoning would surely come.

After a nor’easter opened a new inlet between Seaside Park and Belmar that winter, taking out five or six
unoccupied summer homes, Prof. Marcus’s zeal could hardly be contained. He showed us aerial photographs
of the string of barrier beaches—basically overgrown sandbars—separating the Atlantic Ocean and a series of
shallow bays all along the New Jersey coastline.
Comes the inevitable hurricane, he warned, and scores of New Jersey resort towns would be washed into the ocean.
Erecting permanent structures on such terrain was an exercise in futility. Better to preserve the barrier islands as
public parkland. Build nothing on sand that you can’t afford to see pounded to splinters by the sea, was his advice.
Needless to say, such warnings are rarely heeded. Not when there’s money to be made.
The more comfortable we grow, the less respectful we are of nature’s destructive power.

Has anyone thought of this? 
Start another White House petition calling for the involuntary expulsion of Texas. 
See how many sugnatures that one gets.

I'd sign that mother in a heart beat, but it we lose Texas
we should lose Florida, too - they're nothing but trouble.

The Nutjobs at FOX News

by Walter Uhler


Thanks to Nate Silver’s projections, I was confident that Obama would win reelection,
which enabled me to spend more of my limited, but mind-numbing, TV time watching
the right-wing bloviators on Fox News — Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity and Greta Van Susteren.
Their self-important buffoonery was immensely enjoyable.

“Buffoonery?” Yes, the most important news event of 2012, the election, Fox News got it wrong.
Yes, all of the good folks at Fox News (more appropriately called “Bullshit Mountain News” by
comedian Jon Stewart) got it wrong. Bill O’Reilly got it wrong. Sean Hannity got it wrong.
Karl Rove got it wrong. Ann Coulter got it wrong.

Dick Morris predicted a Romney landslide, 325 Electoral College votes for Romney and but
213 for President Obama. If that difference constitutes a landslide, then it was Obama who
actually won in a landslide. In the fact-based world, Obama actually won by a landslide, 332 to 206.

Newt Gingrich got it wrong. So did Steve Forbes, who told Greta that Romney was going to win
by more than 5 points and 320 electoral votes. And, all along, the pitiful true believers who live in
the conservative media bubble swallowed their bullshit – which explains their shock and dismay
when the real world smacked them across the face.

Texas liberals - bummed about this secession bullshit?
Other states giving you grief for living in Texas?
Here's something to consider.

In 2012, over three and a quarter million Texans pulled the lever for Obama.
Of the 25 states that went blue, only three (California, New York, and Florida)
had more people who voted for Obama.

Yeah, it doesn't matter with the electoral college,
but it's an interesting thing to consider
peace out,

They say Ryan will probably top the ticket in 2016,
which should turn Hillary's victory into a landslide.

Fundraiser to Keep Going

Seems like it's been a year or two since we had a fund-raiser.
Subscribers are way off, donations are way down, but we still have a lot of readers.

Back in the old days, when people had jobs, we raised $6,000 once.
Today, I'd be satisfied with a $2,000 fund-raiser.

(It kills me to see other Lefty sites appeal for money:
 "We need $30,000 by Friday - can you help?") is worth saving, right?

I think I can retire and make more on Social Security Disability.

Times are tough, and I realize people can't contribute like they used to
but I'd already be gone if it wasn't for Mrs. Bart kicking in her paycheck.

Even the purchases on are down - waaaay down.
Hopefiully that'll pick up some as Christmas gets closer so I think Amazon
is my best chance of staying on the web - at least that's a temporary fix.

PLEASE use the Amazon link when you shop online.

I can make it till the end of the year, and since Amazon pays two months late,
I can see me staying alive until February, but I can't make it thru next year on
the money that's been coming in lately.
If you can think of a way to save  Send an e-mail to Bart

If you think  is worth saving, please try to kick in a few dollars.

I will make you this promise: I won't disappear suddenly.
We might end up doing a "Last 90 days of Bartcop" -  that'd be sad.

Today's Mystery City



Subject: last issue's Mystery City    

Bart, that's Downtown Kansas City, seen from the southeast.

That building a little right of the center, with twin peaks, was empty for years.
It's now a "luxury apartment" highrise. The top part, which is a little darker in that picture,
was sold as 2 penthouses. The north half sold a couple years ago for $1 million.
For completely unfinished space.  They've reportedly spent millions in construction costs finishing it.

Thanks for your site, Bart.
Let's hope Obama comes to work in his second term, and stops coddling the republicons.

Janeane Garofalo Unwittingly Married for 20 Years


Alcohol-fueled nuptials in Las Vegas aren't typically known for their longevity,
but Janeane Garofalo is bucking the trend, announcing she had been unknowingly, legally married for 20 years.

Janeane said she married writer Rob Cohen as a joke in Las Vegas in the 1990s,
and didn't realize the marriage was official.

"Rob and I got married, for real, which we had to have a notary dissolve not 30 minutes before we
got here tonight," Garofalo said. "We were married for 20 years until this evening," she told the audience.
