Magical Emoting

Well, gee, everyone must know about Barbra Streisand's "reign of witches" idiocy.

But as Mickey Kaus says, one instance is just happenstance, whereas two instances constitutes a trend that journalists can write a big stupid think-piece about.

Jen's got the second instance of liberals blaming the election results on Dark Magic. The word "mages" figures prominently.

Anyone think the LLM will seize upon this trend as fodder for think-pieces about the goofy panfaith paganism that's all the rage in lefty circles? I doubt it, myself.

The only problem with a top ten about this is that it would be too easy.

Oh yeah-- and also I can only think of two entries. So, okay, maybe not "too easy" so much as "too difficult." Either/or.

Reader-Created Top Ten List? Well, it's obviously a good premise, but I'm sorta stuck. So rather than waste the opportunity, why not let you guys do some of my work for me?

Post your entries for a list titled "Top Ten Reasons, According to Barbra Streisand, That Liberals Lost the Election." Most references should be about witchcraft and such, but it's always good to throw in a couple of oddball ones just to mix it up.

I'll compile the best ones up by late afternoon and post them. Warning: I'm a big tweaker, so don't be too offended if I take your reference/joke and edit it up some.

Obviously, there's gonna be a D&D reference, but as they say in Highlander, There can be only one, so you geeks are really going to have to step it up and put in your A-Game if you want to win the coveted D&D reference slot.
