Beck’s Election Prediction

Glenn Beck, who thinks that Mitt Romney is just like George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, is making his predictions on the election. And he thinks Romney wins by more than 100 electoral votes, because God is on Romney’s side.

So if that doesn’t happen, will it prove that God doesn’t want Romney? Or that Beck has no idea what God wants? Or that there is no God? Of course not.

    How many states is God registered in? Doesn’t that constitute election fraud?

    Well, they did have a mega prayer for him, completely with citations (http://romneymegaprayer.com/)

    Prayer efficacy was demonstrated by citing a link to a paper, which when examined showed what was expected. Placebo.

    Incidentally, Beck’s not the only wingnut making bizarre predictions. Many pundits have spoken, and Beck is just middle of the pack.

    Cramer is certainly something else.

    Reginald, comment reminded me of the Jack Handey Deep Thought: “If God dwells inside us like some people say, I sure hope He likes enchiladas, because that’s what He’s getting.”

    Well if we believe what his fans tell us, he doesn’t respect the secrecy of the ballot, and indeed, already knows the result!

    There is non stop discussion of what mormons will think of a romney defeat. Most seem to agree that they will claim the world is too evil and that Stan wouldn’t let a righteous mormon win.

    Hmm, white, male, American. Yep just the same, well apart from the whole batshit thing I hear Washington and Lincoln had at least a passing acquaintance with reality.

    my predictions:

    Obama wins.

    Evangelical Christiansn will screech and scream that the Mormon and the Roman Catholic tricked them and then will proceed to claim that the world will end in December.

    I remember about 40 years ago when I first heard about the Rapture. At the time, given the people I knew who believed they would be taken up in the Rapture, it seemed like it would improve the gene pool enormously. I have never since seen any reason to change my mind.

    There is a single victim in all this. His name is Ed Brayton. I think we’re going to need to get a caffeine drip via IV to keep him blogging through all of the right-wing fallout after Obama wins tonight.

    If we can get the same sex marriage initiatives passed in one or more states, and we see the outright theocrats like Akin and Mourdock lose, it will be even better.

    Note from Beck 321 Electoral Votes is a “Mandate!”.

    It’ll be pretty awesome if Obama makes it that high.

  11. Alverant says

    #18 Right not it looks like Obama will win CO, FL, and VA. I don’t know how many votes those states have, but it would put him close to 321 right?

    Unfortunately he’s still losing the popular vote by 200k. Not that it matters but I remember another president 12 years ago who also lost the popular vote. Payback’s is a slow train.

    If we can get the same sex marriage initiatives passed in one or more states…

    It’s passing in Washington.

    It’s passing in Washington.

    Looks like it’s passing in all four. Though in Minnesota, it’s not doing much except maintaining the status quo. No further towards equality, but at least it looks like the voters are rejecting the idea of moving even further away.

    It’s really messed up when that counts as a win. Still, if it’s all we can get, I’ll take it.

    Maine, Maryland, and Washington though, those are epic. Messed up again, when this stuff is up for a popular vote, but it’s still amazing to see those rights recognized through whatever process- and that people are getting sane enough that a popular vote can actually get it done.

    Now that anything to be elected Ron as lost, will Beck eat the crow he richly deserves. Oh and it appears that Obama won the popular vote so Beck, Rush, and Hanity can’t whine about the people’s will being thwarted.

    Only Ed knows, of course, but I believe he eats the forthcoming entertainment like Popeye the Sailor eats spinach. The real problem may be what the feck can we do to keep up with the forthcoming blog monsoon?
