Nice to see Norah O'donnell walk him back,lol...not a good sign that they learned anything, and yea, his voice makes him sound the age he is acting
I did not even bother to read the article or listen to a video attached to a news story with that title. I sure hope the dude was not serious believing calling someone poopy head cost the Republicans the election. That is someone seriously out of touch and delusional.

Personally, I hope they continue to wear the blinders provided by Fox, Rush, Glenn etc. If you combine conservative inability to see anything that has not been filtered by Fox with changing demographics the entire Republican party will go the way of the Whigs.
We have to hope that the moderates will take over from the right wing nut cases and the country will be able to get things done
He won the election because people slightly more voted for him than for the opposition. I don't see the need for further explanation.
