OMG

Woman Allegedly Runs Over Husband for 'Helping' to Re-Elect President Obama

by Sasha Brown-Worsham on November 13, 2012 at 7:08 AM

woman ran over husband over electionHolly Solomon is allegedly really upset that President Barack Obama won his bid for re-election. She is so upset that, according to police, the pregnant 28-year-old from Arizona RAN OVER HER HUSBAND with an SUV because he didn't vote. Wow. ALL the psychos are crawling out of the woodwork on this one.

Solomon is looking at a whole lot of prison time and her poor husband is looking at a whole lot of recovery time (he is in critical condition) all because his wife allegedly has poor impulse control and is clearly a moron, too. Solomon may be sad to learn that even had her husband voted, the results would have been the same because a) Obama won by WAY more than one vote, and b) Arizona went to candidate Mitt Romney anyway.

Look, it's great that this psycho wants us to all celebrate our American pride and get to the polls. It's our civic duty! But, um, could you learn a little bit about history and our country before you put the pedal to the metal?

Those of us on the left get it. You're disappointed your candidate lost and that is too bad. It's never fun to be on the losing end of a campaign, especially when you believed in the change. But here's what: This IS democracy. This is how it works. So all this talk of secession and overt racism and RUNNING HUSBANDS OVER LIKE DOGS only makes people look like fools.

If they EVER want any chance of winning, the Republican right is going to have to work on appearing a lot more sane.

This is how elections work. In 2000 and 2004, I was upset. All my friends were upset. We cried. We raged (among one another). We complained that the rest of the country was clearly moronic. But then, the next morning, we moved on. We got back to our lives, and you know what? I am here, 12 years later, doing far better in my career. My husband and I both finished graduate school, had children, advanced in our careers, quadrupled our salaries, and bought houses.

It's not that bad. Even if you loathe Obama, it's your own damn fault if you can't manage to make something of your life.

No candidate or president can keep you from having a happy life. It just shouldn't affect us THAT much. So cry, get upset, and beat your fists, but do it in the privacy of your own home. Then compose yourself, learn a bit about history (see there's this THING now called the electoral college that means your one vote can only swing your state, not the whole election), and set about making YOUR life better. Jeesh.

Why do you think people are overreacting so much to this election?

    Is this what we are going to endure for the next four years. You are going to blog about every extreme case of assholeness? The problem I am having is that you are attributing it to every Republican of feeling this way. Knock it off. Lets talk about important things like Benghazi, Petreaus and so forth.

    If I can survive 8 years of W, Republicans can survive 4 more years of Obama. History will be the ultimate judge.

    Pregnant women cannot be held responsible for their actions.

    The country is facing one of the biggest financial disasters in history, the director of the CIA just resigned, Syria is in the middle of a massive civil war, and the Benghazi investigation is still ongoing yet Sasha is still writing articles basically saying nah nah nah, we won and you didn't.  I'm kind of embarassed that a website geared toward women can't write any deeper political articles beyond I hate Republicans.

    Color me not surprised. Why are they overreacting? Because they're batshit crazy. It's one thing to be upset, hurt, and disappointed. Nothing wrong with that. It's another to fill your facebook with the worst cases of verbal diarrhea I've ever seen, want to secede, or run over your friggin husband

    Procrast, before you say something nasty like that, you should be careful. Her home could of been one of those lost or she might of had a family member pass.

    Crazy woman!! I blame the right wing media for brainwashing republicans that Mitt was going to win when he wasnt and poll showed it. All that talk about a landslide win was bullshit. If anyone got the landslide was Obama with Ohio where Romney screwed up big time. Ahemmm.... Lying in an AD. Seriously, the republicans need to change their parties ideas or else it will die. Being anti-gay and anti-47% and anti-immigration when we have a huge population of gays, lower income and unemployed families and hispanic immigrants doest help. Lets get real now. Politics starts with the people you need to convince about your ideas and the Republicans lost a lot of people, mostly minorities whos vote actually mattered and favored Obama.

    As a Democrat, I can honestly say that I believe had the elections gone the other way there would be much of the same behavior as these loons that have been popping up. Crazy doesn't just exist on one wing. Political campaigning reminds me a lot of high school elections. On one hand, you have the person that really wants the change and really wants to make a difference, and on the other hand you have the popular jock, the people pleaser who says what he thinks they want to hear. I'm not going to say who's who in this election, but politics to me seems like one big prom election where there's a lot of growing up to do on both sides.

    It was a very sad day for that POS to be reelected. I can see how she would be mad at her husband, but she should have just divorced his sorry a** instead. Lol!!
