The 2014 mid-term elections are over, and the inmates have taken over the asylum. Prepare for wingnuttery like you’ve never seen before.
Last Friday, I had a lot of fun poking at the nuttiest candidates on the ballot. Wednesday morning I woke up to a mind-numbing reality: they all won.
Never mind that soon-to-be Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said the same thing earlier the same day.
Wingnuts spewed outrage all over Twitter that President didn’t just resign and hand in the White House keys.
President Obama just doesn't give a damn about last night's election, he's making that very clear.

Dear American voters, President Obama just gave you the middle finger.

The reality is, Obama is going to do whatever he wants anyway. He will not be stopped, and I doubt very highly Republicans will arrest him.

Plus, wingnut media has a message for Republicans: “You weren’t elected to govern!”
- Rush Limbaugh said that Republicans have a mandate to “Stop Barack Obama” and “were not elected to govern.”
- In a post-election Renew America column, Rev. Austin Miles called upon Republicans in Congress to “to get Obama out of office immediately” as their “first act” in office.
- Phyllis Schlafly told WorldNet Daily that the GOP Senate’s first priority should be blocking all of President Obama’s judicial nominees.
- Fox News’ talking heads were giddy about Congress impeaching Obama over executive action on immigration, before the voting even started.
- Fox News host Megyn Kelley fantasized that President Obama would “offend” Republicans into impeaching him.
- Fox News’ Chris Wallace predicted calls for impeachment over executive action on immigration.
- Birther columnist Lord Christopher Monckton hopes the new majority-Republican Congress will “find what in English we should call the cojones to do something about the birth certificate.” President Obama’s birth certificate, that is.
- Michael Savage said on his radio show that the GOP Congress must impeach President Obama before he “triggers an insurrection.”
