Those of us who stayed up until the wee hours of the morning to watch Barack Obama’s victory speech had to find a way to kill time. Almost two hours passed between the first news organizations’ projections that the president had been re-elected and Mitt Romney’s concession speech. From 11:15 to 12:55, we amused ourselves by switching channels to The Daily Show, pouring ourselves another round of celebratory drinks, watching Karl Rove try to convince Fox News that the election wasn’t over — and scanning Twitter to see how our favorite famous Republicans were taking the defeat.
Of course, Donald Trump was the popular punching bag: Half of this writer’s Twitter feed was taken up by liberals RTing his temper tantrum. On NBC, Brian Williams observed that Trump “has driven well past the exit to irrelevance and veered into something closer to irresponsible.” But The Donald isn’t the only famous Republican who’s been flipping out on Twitter. Among the sore losers, perhaps the most bizarre and entertaining is Ted Nugent, who went full-on Book of Revelation this morning, with some harsh words for the “pimps whores & welfare brats” and “subhuman varmints” he believes make up Obama’s constituency. Read his rant — and be grateful this guy didn’t get to pick our next president — below.
