Election day nausea: two more reasons to hope Obama loses

1.  If he wins, there’s a good chance that it will be by winning the electoral college and losing the popular vote.  Meaning that progressive opposition to that mideaval antidemocratic institution will, like progressive opposition to neoliberalism, vanish.

2. When the Great Recession part II hits under Obama part II, the market fascist right will blame the Keynesian socialist tax-and-liberal progressivism that it imagines Obama to exemplify.  The liberal-left, too cowed and stupified to articulate any objection, will merely nod and whimper.  Then whatever Randroid abomination that the Repugs can vomit forth will stride into power unopposed in 2016.
