They're like robots hit by lightning...

... or a pithed frog.

They're completely stopped even trying to make sense:
Reeling from Tuesday’s widespread losses, yesterday “about 20 political strategists and social and fiscal conservative leaders met” to discuss the future of the movement at the home of Brent Bozell, head of the right-wing Media Research Center. Describing the meeting on Fox News this morning, Bozell insisted America remained a “center-right country” and that the election had not been the death knell for conservatism because “conservatism played no role in the election.” Seconds later, however, Bozell claimed that Barack Obama had won the election “as a conservative”:
BOZELL: Conservatives didn’t play a role in this campaign. This was a moderate Republican against a liberal, left-wing Democrat. And the left-wing Democrat beat the moderate Republican. … If you look at the exit polls this year, you’ll find two fascinating results. Number one: This country remains every bit as center-right as it has for a generation.

HEMMER: You don’t think that’s changed at all?

BOZELL: No it hasn’t. … Number one is that the public is conservative; number two: Barack Obama won as a conservative. That means Barack Obama does not have the mandate to enact the progressive agenda he wants to enact.
And then there's this exemplar of Godwin's Law:
Yesterday evening, James Dobson’s Focus on the Family Action sent out a fundraising e-mail lamenting the victory of Barack Obama. (Dobson had personally endorsed the McCain-Palin ticket.) The author of the e-mail, Focus on the Family Action senior vice president Tom Minnery, told his readers not to despair, saying that the right wing would overcome this situation just as Britons overcame Hitler’s bombing in World War II:
The spirit of Winston Churchill was alive and well on Tuesday night at Focus on the Family Action headquarters.

You may recall that in the most desperate days of World War II – when Great Britain was being pounded daily by Hitler’s Luftwaffe – that Winston Churchill called on his countrymen not to despair from danger but to rise to the challenge. […]

As our incredible team of staff members watched the election results pour in on Election Night, an amazing thing happened that Churchill might have recognized. Despite some sobering disappointments, there was no mood of despair and no “bunker mentality.”
Yeah, with numbnutz and RW foamers thus reduced to incoherence and insanity, there will be need for the Secret Service to stay on their toes. But the good news is this:
In a new Rasmussen poll out today, Republicans overwhelmingly say that they want Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as their presidential nominee in 2012. Sixty-four percent of GOP respondents said that Palin would be their top choice in 2012....
(h/t to ThinkProgress for documenting this non-stop hit list of RW lunacy)

Life is good. :-)

Next to Obama being elected, the rightwingnut love for Palin is the best thing to come out of this election.

Leftwing foamers hate and fear Palin. That's why the smears and hatespeech against her continues.

anonymous, you could not be more wrong. The "smears and hatespeech" being directed at Palin are coming from her fellow rightwingnuts.

Those of us on the left LOVE Sarah Palin. We want to see her become the rightwingnut candidate for president in 2012.

No. We don't "hate and fear" Palin. We laugh at her.

And we do sincerely hope that you folks propel her to the head of the Rethuglican party. Pure comedy gold, and job security for the Colbert/TDS writers (not to mention SNL.

But I should point out that saner heads than you are paying some minimal attention to reality and being a bit more realistic.
