Since Twitchy launched in March, we’ve been documenting daily evidence of conservative Twitter domination and hilarious liberal hashtag failures. Whether it’s hijacking progressive hashtags or launching their own, conservatives rule the political Twitterverse.

Today, Twitter confirmed what Twitchy has been reporting. The #tcot, or “top conservatives on Twitter” hashtag, tops the list of political hashtags for 2012.

And it’s far from the only top conservative trend. The next four spots went to #teaparty, #gop, #romney and Mitt Romney.

Congrats to all the happy warriors on Twitter who delighted in crushing narratives, mocking the steady supply of mock-worthy liberal nonsense  and tweeting truth to power! It’s not the only battleground by far, but it’s one we won’t cede.

Now let’s translate that into domination at the polls!

  • conservativechick

    HIJACK all liberal hashtags! :)

    We may dominate Twitter, but we don’t dominate in the voting booth where it matters.

    • zelaftino

      I have read many tweets that have nothing to do with politics but still use #tcot

      “Hey, my son just farted #tcot #win #war”

      I will say it again, #tcot is not a message. It is a signature at the end of a tweet.

    Rofl. Hashtags like #tcot and #teaparty only exist to make fun of losing losers who lose elections. Very popular.

      wow look at all these Union sympathizers on twitchy today. Really ruffled some feathers some where. LOL Praying for all of you sheep out there. Follow the one true Shepherd, Your Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!!

    Fox news is also a highly rated pritch-to-the-quire Network.

    Expand your reach if you want to make a difference. Tweeting to one another, retweeting each other’s tweet is just not going to cut it.

    Yeah, sure…funny how you lost the election and pretty much everyone beside Malkin has conceded that liberals completely own the internet.

    • Teresa Davis McCormick

      they certainly are trying aren’t they. But the truth seems to come to the top. So we’ll see,.

    • http://twitter.com/hamybear Michael Hampton

      She must need more advertisers.

      • zelaftino

        Advertisers? fuk that! I would go for BIG money.

        First you lay-down the ground work (we won on twitter) Done.

        Then you prepare a nice package on how Leechy was a driving force and hand it to the Koch brothers

        (By the way, how ugly is this site?! I mean, the IKEA monkey would do a better job…I would push for Leechy person-hood status if I was Malikin…Leechy would qualify for Obamacare under preexisting condition….yes, ugly is preexisting condition….same could be said of Malkin…on the inside of course)

      • Hiraghm

        You better hope she gets them… how else to pay for all your entitlements, social welfare programs and failing “green” companies?

  • kayakingfatso

    Big deal. We won twitter. While Twitter doesn’t force me to pay for owhatshisfacecare, Twitter doesn’t pay my mortgage. We need to dominate and win at the polls. Where it truly DOES matter.

    • $21367552

      Yet you have absolutely no interesting ideas of how to do that (hint, choosing even crazier right wing religious nut jobs than Romney is not the answer).

      • kayakingfatso

        When more than half of the country wants something for nothing, it’s difficult to run with the suggestion that we return to personal responsibility. You’ve lost your balance with your hands opened and out in front of you…

        • $21367552

          Ummmm, playing armchair psychoanalyst to 65 million people whom you’ve never even met let alone took the time to understand their motivations and concerns that led them to vote Obama, and claiming “that half of the country wants something for nothing” is an even bigger losing strategy. Keep trying fatso.

          • Hiraghm

            Doesn’t take a psychoanalyst to see what’s blindingly obvious. Obama offers Marxist redistribution, taking from the producers and giving to the moochers and looters. And he wins an election in which he should not even have garnered a single vote, were the republic still healthy.

          • Ed

            Ah, the stupid. It Burns. Jim, you’re the problem with the GOP. News Flash. You weren’t running against Imaginary Marxist Socialist Kenyan Obama, you were running against Real, Slightly Left-of-Center Obama. I’m sorry you are STILL too blind/ignorant/whatever to realize this, but until you do, your party is going to continue to lose elections. Your information sources (Read: Right-Wing Media) painted a caricature of Obama that was so ridiculous and idiotic that the GOP losing the election was guaranteed. The real tragedy and problem with America isn’t your imaginary moocher/looter/socialist/marxist liberals, but the head-in-the-sand, close-minded, echo-chamber GOP, and it’s RABID insistence that your OPINIONS carry the same weight as FACTS. Here’s something the adults int he room realized a LONG time ago. Wishing for something, saying it over and over again, no matter how many times, does NOT make it true.

          • emery ann harris

            Moochers and looters…like Ayn Rand who ended her days subsisting on Medicare and Social Security?

          • wwbdinct

            If she paid into it, then it was hers in the first place. She didn’t subsist on something the government gave her.

          • Teresa Davis McCormick

            oh no, poor baby, you have no idea how social security works don’t you?

    I follow Dana Loesch (her tweet sent me here)

    A few weeks or months ago, Dana, on her radio show, was talking about how she doesn’t follow Obama (or the system forced her to follow him? or something like that)

    That is the extent of the pritch-to-the-quire mentality of conservatives out there.

  • Purple State

    Vital context missing here (of course.) Just because a hashtag trends, doesn’t mean that every use of it is an endorsement of the ideals it represents. Plenty of liberal-minded tweeters use the tcot hashtag too. Those tweets aren’t supportive of conservatives or the GOP, and yet they still “count” in terms of popularity of Twitter trends. Same with GOP, romney, etc. hashtags.

    • zelaftino

      That is how you hammer it home. May be #tcot is what won us the election. I think y’all got fed a kool aid with your own spoon. hehe

      • Teresa Davis McCormick

        why does everyone say won “us” hey moron you didn’t win. Obama won. You are just another di^*$ head with no grasp of politics or history.

      • Purple State

        51% to 47%. That’s a larger spread than Bush 2004 when he had a “mandate.”

        • http://twitter.com/hamybear Michael Hampton

          I was just going to say that.

        • W Randall

          Well I hope your party is happy that they got all the uneducated, welfair, food stamp, free phone receiving votes. Unions strong arming their unemployed union workers to vote Left, bused in illegal immigrants, and in some polling districts managed to have 140% of registered voters turn out to vote. A lot of calculated effort and deception went into voting the worst President in history back into office. Not much to brag about.

          • Seewetoldu

            Amen brother.Because there are more uniformed ignorant people in the US looking for Baraka Claus to give them something for their vote.We are all laughing at your stupidity. The only thing we actually concerned about is how much more destruction your brain dead leader will do.Once this Dem is out, Conservatives will have a lock for decades to come.

          • http://twitter.com/hamybear Michael Hampton

            Actually, it was just proven that you don’t have enough old people to win anymore. You will always be outvoted by the people.

          • Hiraghm

            So old people aren’t really people?
            In spite of the nonsense spewed at you by tv and social media… young people are actually not as wise as old people. The wisest of us died over 200 years ago, the ones who created this nation, and whom you children think you’re so much smarter than.
            Well, we’ll see what kind of brave new world you socialists can come up with. So far you’ve struck out every time at bat.

          • Jelly Bean Raider

            YEAH… all those young college educated folks that voted for BO must be getting SOMETHING for free??

          • Teresa Davis McCormick

            ya he promised to cut tuition costs. Or did you not hear that? oops, guess you aren’t the scholar you thought you were.

          • bunker32792

            Please, explain Socialism. I dare you.

          • Teresa Davis McCormick

            believe me, Mikey. With all the Lefties aborting their own offspring and marrying same sex couples, I think us Conservatives will come out all right in the end. I mean how many children did you have that voted Republican?

          • http://twitter.com/hamybear Michael Hampton

            I hate to have to tell you this, but conservatives abort their children too. Look at Scott DeJarlais.

          • Teresa Davis McCormick

            some conservative did? Wow, so you assume we all do? Poor Mikey with his wishful thinking.

          • Jelly Bean Raider

            You sure cry like a little child! Is this how you get over being exposed for a fraud of a Political Party?

          • Teresa Davis McCormick

            I think anyone who is not concerned over the Obama administration and it’s effect on all of us Americans, is childlike. Wake up.

          • TonyMontana3

            Don’t be a sore loser. Is Colin Powell on food stamps or uneducated?

          • W Randall

            No, he’s a racist and traitor. He voted color and abandoned his party for color and not country.

            OH MAN I CAN’T STOP LAUGHING AT THE IRONY OF THIS POST.

          • Adrian

            I love the one’s like you who think all blacks vote color . When Obama was running for Senate from Illinois he got 95% of the black vote against a black man

          • TonyMontana3

            Do you have any proof that he voted Obama because he’s black? If you don’t, you’re not any better than Toure from MSNBC.

          • Jelly Bean Raider

            Or maybe he finally got wise and saw the GOP for what it really is!

            Angry old white men who demand to have everything their way.

          • http://twitter.com/hamybear Michael Hampton

            Can you prove any of that “voter fraud” nonsense? Because no FBI, CIA or police organization can. In fact, no action has been taken on any of those allegations. Hmm.

          • Teresa Davis McCormick

            actually I don’t believe it’s the job of the cia, Michael. Hey! where have you been? I’ve missed your drivel. Still praying for you deary.

          • http://twitter.com/hamybear Michael Hampton

            Way to ignore my point as always Sugarbiscuit.

          • Teresa Davis McCormick

            i guess talking down to females is okay as long as you’re a gay liberal, right? I for one do not know whose job it is to investigate voter fraud. I know, it’s a shocker. I do think that it’s kind of funny how everyone seems to be so upset that some conservative hashtag trended better than something else. Conservatives pay more attention to what comes out of politician’s pie holes and now what they are typing. Nothing new to see here. You don’t really have to get upset about it. You don’t have to have a rational twitter conversation anyway. You still have CNN.

          • http://twitter.com/airyfairy222 Allison Foster

            If you bothered to do any research, you know, like gather and analyze facts, you would see why some of those places reported they had over 100% turn out like they did. (They really didn’t)

          • W Randall

            Go to the counties voter poll sites, look at their own statistics. I did that, did you? You’re a sheep following you’re precious Shepard, off the cliff.

          • Teresa Davis McCormick

            I don’t remember our Shepherd (Jesus) saying anything about voter fraud.

          • bunker32792

            “You’re” precious “Shepard”? Seriously, I’m dyin’ here. How do you expect to make a valid political argument, when you’re not able to spell past a middle school level?

          • Jelly Bean Raider

            Or maybe the GOP just really showed us all their true feelings?
            (But if you need to stomp around the room, like a butthurt child.. by all means, Enjoy!!)

          • azh

            Maybe you should spell check before you call others “uneducated.”

          • SuckThisTeabagger

            Keep believing that and pushing that message. I’m sure it’ll help you win the next election.

          • BaldBombshell

            Irony is calling others uneducated while being unable to spell “welfare”.

          • Ricky Shambles

            It’s humorous that you follow “uneducated” with a misspelling of “welfare.” It’s sad that you’re unaware that Republican presidents implemented and strengthened the subsidized phone program. It’s downright ignorant to repeat conspiracy theory talking points that have no basis in reality. You can be a sore loser; don’t be a dumb one.

        • Hiraghm

          Well, let’s hope that Obama’s “mandate” is as successful as Bush’s.

          • Jelly Bean Raider

            By getting 1000’s of Americans killed in an illegal war that wasted Billions?

            I think Obama already passed that low water mark in the 1st 4 yours!

          • Teresa Davis McCormick

            illegal war? Prove it. or shut up. why do lefties have such a short memory? do some research, please, school is closed here for the day.

          • TexSizzle

            If you mean nobama passed the low-water mark of “getting one-thousands of Americans killed in an illegal [sic] war”, yes, nobama did get more killed in 4 years than were killed in 8 years while Bush was president.

          • TexSizzle

            Prove that they were. *You* can’t.

          • bunker32792

            Ah, Mr. Sizzle- sorry you were late to the party. My response was not to you, but to Ms. McCormick, so your comment is unsolicited.

            I was speaking (tongue-in-cheek) to her remark regarding the 2012 Presidential election being “stolen”. She says, “prove it wasn’t,.” (sic).

            As any college-level Logic professor would explain, you can’t make an argument by stating how something ISN’T true. As in, “Prove that God DOESN’T want us to wear magic underpants- you can’t”. Or, “Prove that Bigfoot isn’t real- you can’t”. If said arguments are considered rational or sound, than anything becomes true.

            Thanks for your response though. I’ve been especially appreciative of your references to those “liberals”, and your ability to make up funny names like “nobama”; it really helps explain your talking points, and is very funny too.

      • Greg Siggins

        First Pres since Eisenhower to win 51% of the vote twice.

        • Hiraghm

          in 1980 Reagan only got 50.7% of the popular vote, while taking all but 3 of the States. In 1984, he got 58.8% of the popular vote, while taking all but one of the States.

          In 2008, Obama got 52.9% of the popular vote… but only 51% in 2012. He carried 28 States in 2008, but only 26 in 2012.

          You can’t call that a mandate. He lost ground from one election to the next.

          • Purple State

            A mandate isn’t about comparing the same candidate from election to election. Opponents aren’t interchangeable. A mandate refers to the margin of victory, and the ability of a winning party to implement policies that were successfully campaigned upon.

          • Jelly Bean Raider

            If the (D)’s got more of the popular vote then the GOP and that is not considered a mandate… what would you call the beating you took from the American public? What is that telling the conservatives?

            Care to explain that to us?

    • Joe W.

      51% = Crushed??? Not hardly, Bosco.

    • melody

      crushed??? Yes, you won, but if you cheat is it really ever winning? And winning by a 2% window isn’t CRUSHING….its NARROW, JUST BARELY, EXTREMELY CLOSE. And voter fraud as a campaign tactic is hardly something to be proud of, but one only has to look at the SOCIALIST living in the US Whitehouse to figure out, THAT WAS A SAMPLING OF WHAT THE WHOLE US IS IN STORE FOR. You people picked a REAL WINNER OUT OF THE NOSE OF SOCIETY….eventually though all BOOGERS HAVE TO COME OUT…..LOL

      • TonyMontana3

        Well, LOL to you too.

      • Purple State

        51% minus 47% isn’t 2%. It’s actually a bigger spread than W. won in 2004 when he claimed that his victory was a mandate on his policies.

        • http://twitter.com/airyfairy222 Allison Foster

          • Purple State

            How doesn’t it? 51 + 47 = 98. The remaining 2 voted third party. The spread remains the same.

      • peteywheats

        The final score: 332 to 206.
        a.k.a. 61.7% to 38.3.

    By the way, WE, as a whole damned country, lost the election. I am sick of the left saying we (as in the right) lost. This whole country has gone to hell in a handout basket.

    • http://twitter.com/hamybear Michael Hampton

      Oh. So NOW we are one country. Before it was you against us. But NOW that you got completely spanked and were informed that you will never win an election again because the religious conservatives that you have depended on since Reagan are dying off. Not enough of them to swing a vote your way. Got it.

      • kayakingfatso

        When have I ever said we are NOT one country? You just don’t get it. It’s not about us vs. them. It’s not a goddamned contest. It’s what’s best for the country as a whole. It has become clear to me that while *I* want to be responsible for taking care of my family, you want it to be my responsibility to take care of yours, too.

        • http://twitter.com/hamybear Michael Hampton

          I take care of my own family, thank you. I just don’t believe that poor people should starve and/or die of easily curable diseases.

          • ChelieinTX

            Then do more from your own money/whatever to help them. Don’t force the rest of us to contribute to what YOU deem most important. Let us use our money THAT WE EARN the way we choose.

          • peteywheats

            Fine, don’t make me pay for your wars or corporate welfare.

          • ChelieinTX

            Who said I like wars or corporate welfare? Michael Hampton is able to help poor people on his own if he wishes, but I cannot NOT have taxes I pay used for war & corp welfare. Not the same thing.

          • http://twitter.com/hamybear Michael Hampton

            So war and corporate welfare are GOOD things for our country. And yet helping the poor is a BAD thing. Hmm.

          • Teresa Davis McCormick

            The gov. exists to help protect us in times of war. Not to give us handouts. So, not saying war is good.

          • http://twitter.com/hamybear Michael Hampton

            So I don’t earn my money? What you are saying makes no sense. We elect representatives through the majority in order to spend our collective money. Just because this time you don’t like where that money is going, you want to pack up your matchbox cars and go home sulking. I didn’t want my hard earned money to go to paying for an illegal war. It went there whether I wanted it to or not. I didn’t want my hard earned money to go into Cheney’s pocket. I didn’t want Haliburton to become as rich as they did from my money. But they did.

            well then, something we can agree on. But you know the way things are heading, we are going to have a lot more people starving and people not being able to get proper medical care. If you are interested in helping any one please check out your local homeless shelter. They always need volunteers!

        • Hiraghm

          worse than that. The progressives DON’T want it to be your responsibility to take care of your family, but the government’s responsibility. Your responsibility is to work and hand over your paycheck for them to mis-spend.

        He didn’t say “we are one country”. He said the country lost, and it did. It’s still “you against us”. It’s still the progressives who want to destroy America to replace it with a socialist madhouse. So, the country lost to the progressives… get it?

    • Seewetoldu

      The ignorant liberals believe what they were told , that this was just black against a racist whitey. They don’t understand this election was about saving this country .

      • zelaftino

        I did not. I did not think this was black against racist whitey.
        I wish it was. I really do. God I wish this was just a racist bs hate for Obama because Obama will not be around after four years (or if he had lost, he would’ve been history) That means the country would move on at some point when the negro is out of office.

        This is way deeper than that. I am afraid you have created a monster called the talk radio and FOX news that has done more damage to this country than ten Obamas combined would ever do.

        • Hiraghm

          The “Monster” was created over 200 years ago when a group of successful, self-reliant merchants, farmers and tradesmen threw out one oppressive government and replaced it with the greatest bastion of individual liberty and opportunity in the history of Mankind.
          Of course, they were a minority among the populace, too.

          • zelaftino

            Agreed. The founding fathers I think were geniuses who saw decades ahead.

            Here is the thing. When Obama came into picture, he was a God sent to FOX and talk radio. They used him to fuel anger and get people glued to their sets.

            But the anger was suppose to stop with Obama.

            Now turn on your TV and see what is going in MI. GOP is making policies based on what is being said on talk radio. Unions, the very people that protect the working – tax paying class are now the devils. This will have a lasting effect way after Obama is gone.

          • bunker32792

            Ya , I noticed you voted for Obama , so I agree with you. You are clueless. You had 4 years to see how your brain dead leader has disgraced America and yet you still voted for him. Baraka Claus came to your town too.

    It wasn’t that long ago that conservatives were dismissing the larger numbers of liberal commentators on the internet as merely evidence that slackers, couch potatoes, and the chronically unproductive tend to be liberals. Now, comparative Twitter trends are supposed to tell us more about the people of our country than what’s going on in our own flesh-and-blood communities?

  • filbypott

    Congrats on winning Twitter! How did you do in the election?

    • Hiraghm

      We did great in the election, in spite of wanting to win. We learned how screwed up nearly half the populace is. We learned just how badly we let the progressives pervert the republic. And we were placed in a position where we will be able to take grim satisfaction in watching the maddened masses learn life lessons.
      This election, “going Galt” became more than just a catchphrase.

          • Jelly Bean Raider

            How could I be mad while I am still laughing at you?I voted for Obama because Mittens kept opening his mouth and expressing how he really felt.

            “Yet there you are – angry, ranting and raving, beating up innocent Americans in Michigan.”

            A) I live no where near Michigan. But beating someone up for political view is never acceptable. But, why am I telling you this… look at your posts! They tell a elementary tale!!

            B) I have yet to rant, but since that is the only think that fits into your limited scope of life, OK! Run with that, son.

            I’m guessing you never heard the expression “rainbows and unicorns” before, which has nothing at all to do with gay marriage. But do keep on ranting and raving. I’m having a good time reading your posts where you exhibit that you’re “not angry at all”. BTW – what’s up with making fun of gay marriage anyway – are you homophobic or something?

          • Jelly Bean Raider

            I’m all for gay marriage! I support (that means I am all for you being happy with another man!) you and your boyfriends (the giver of penis in your relationship) right to do as you please! I just have never heard of two staunch GOP supporters that like Richard that much! But hey.. I support you 100%!! (Is this just a outburst from your childhood? Or are you still mad that daddy used to teach you the ‘birds and bee’s’ after he came home from the bars at 2am?)

            You’ve got to be kidding. You’re calling the GOP party of being hateful (typical) and here you are using homosexuality as a derogatory slam while in the same breath write you’re supporting it! Then you go and accuse wwbdinct’s dad of being a lush. You are the worst sore winner I’ve come across. Have you never heard of winning graciously? Have you ever heard of the word gracious?
            And the only ‘big’ word I’ve seen you use so far is ‘pandering’. Fitting.

            No. I support Gay Marriage and I think the a majority of the GOP is closeted homosexuals. That is what makes them ignorant and angry. Not a slam, just an observation.
            If you wish to think I do not support Gay folks, that is your ball to kick around. You can be ignorant and obtuse all you wish, it’s your American birth right! (Here’s a little help for you… http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/obtuse)

          • Teresa Davis McCormick

            yes because one person speaks for the whole GOP. So tolerant, aren’t you? and for the record, how do you know jelly bean is not gay, i mean it’s obvious that he’s annoying. You are the one making it an insult. You must be homophobic.

          • U_Mad

            Today I learned that pointing out irony is an insult. Sorry to hurt your feelings :(

            For future reference, ASSUMING someone is gay (or any label for that matter) and then attaching a negative connotation to that is not only offensive, it’s ignorant. You wouldn’t like it if someone said “man, you white people are annoying” would you? Didn’t think so. So now we have some hypocrisy to add to your irony. Keep it coming! Keep digging that hole!

            And yes, he does not represent the GOP as a whole, but people like him and you tend to grace us with your verbal diarrhea more than the more reasonable types. So until these rational, productive individuals emerge, you only have folks like yourself to blame for the misrepresentation. Sorry, maybe Michelle Malkin’s screeching rants about nothing have gotten to you. I hope you feel better.

Sorry you don’t think I’m making an intelligent comment, but I am not going to let someone who can’t even make one their self (or even use their own name) tell me to shut up or to go and come back.

            Individual
            rights are not subject to a public vote; a majority has no right to
            vote away the rights of a minority; the political function of rights is
            precisely to protect minorities from oppression by majorities (and the
            smallest minority on earth is the individual).

          “Going Galt” only works if you’re self-sufficient, or people actually depend on you. Not so much, if you’re just reaping the fruits of other people’s labor. The few instances of people “going Galt” by firing people because of Obamacare, the election, or whatever, are just tantrums from people who didn’t get their way. It sucks for the people fired, but they’ll just pick themselves up and work for someone more capable later on.

    The only thing the prevalence of “#tcot” shows is that numerous people have deluded themselves into thinking they are the top conservatives on Twitter.

    • xcott

      That’s not true. The prevalence of #tcot is due to a different phenomenon: conservatives tend to use a small and well-defined set of semi-official hashtags, while liberals don’t have such a regimented way to use Twitter. In other words, conservatives tend to use Twitter with greater group discipline, behavior that one would expect from conservatives.

      As stated earlier, this result doesn’t reflect the popularity of conservative opinion, but the regimented use of conservative hashtags.

        93% of blacks for Obama. Now there’s group discipline!

    Im happy we have a great online conversation going- but I would have preferred to WIN the election.
    I’d be happy to go back to dixie cups and a string if it meant winning.

    Conservatives think faster on their feet, and don’t need to wait for the elite to hand down the talking points. This gives them a natural advantage on twitter.

    • DocLee

      Hilarious. 60+ years of psychological research contradicts your false assertion.

  • ~~ms.harry.styles~~

    if you think that twitter popularity means anything then i have some swampland out near farmville to sell you.

  • Jelly Bean Raider

    Lots of whining about stolen elections and the such.. as if everyone forgot about the 2004 election!

    • wwbdinct

      Sigh. This is too easy but alright then – So what happened in the 2004 election child?

  • LostBoyPA

    So, let’s celebrate the fact that the only thing you won this year was something that doesn’t count. Meanwhile, sanity comes one step closer to returning to Washington. And there was much rejoicing…

  • Rightturn

    What is the source of this? Surely you’re better than that, Twitchy

  • azh

    Were you aware the election happened back in November, or.

  • xcott

    Winning Twitter—it reminds me of gangs fighting a turf war over a jungle gym.

    Twitter and Facebook are for yappy teenagers, and for grown-ups who haven’t yet realized that they’re using a service for yappy teenagers. The only grown-ups who have an excuse to be on Twitter and Facebook are the people who use it to market to teenage demographics.

    Just wait til next year, when conservatives manage to completely dominate Pokemon tournaments.

    • Teresa Davis McCormick

      but wait…here you are commenting about twitter on twitchy. Loser

  • ERMERGERD

    LOLOLOL Look at all the upset libs commenting. Thanks Twitchy! Angry libs are always entertaining.

    • Nick4Left

      Angry? Upset? Are you kidding? More like hurt from laughing so hard.

      • ERMERGERD

        LOL That’s why all the libs are commenting. If you really thought it was stupid, you wouldn’t comment, let alone come to a right leaning site in the first place.

        • Nick4Left

          I didn’t say it was stupid. I said it was funny. I love going to right leaning sites for entertainment, just as much as you find “angry libs” entertaining.

          • ERMERGERD

            Yeah, I would never go on a partisan left site though to troll.

          • Nick4Left

            Who’s trolling? It was just a comment. Don’t take it so hard, now who is getting angry. I just said I thought it was funny. Normally, when I go to right leaning websites, I just read, and don’t even bother to comment. Its a free country

          • ERMERGERD

            I wasn’t talking about you specifically.

  • Reed Reedly

    Wow, all those Republican mothers must be proud.

  • Blue_MD

    Too bad they don’t hold elections over twitter huh?

  • salvagesalvage

    Wow you guys are pretty awesome with the way you can put words on the Internet that you agree with.

    That not only takes a whole lot of spare time but a computer and at least one hand!

    Winners, each and every one of you.

    • Teresa Davis McCormick

      you’ve spent over 2 hours on twitchy? WTH? if you hate it so much, why are you here. I guess the whole twitter thing upset you pretty bad didn’t it. Sad troll

      • salvagesalvage

        Where did I say that I “hate it so much”? Wingnuts, is your problem some sort of dyslexia?

        I am here “so much” (2 hours over how many months is what percentage I wonder?) because wingnuts are funny, the fact that you don’t get the joke makes you even funnier.

        Yes, I am very upset that wingnuts use Twitter a lot, it makes me sad because Twitter is like super-important!!

        See wingnut, this is the sort of jokes you are that you don’t get.

  • exboyracer

    Perhaps winning at twitter was not really all that was required to win an election, it took organization, a good candidate, and reasonable policies, The Democrats had this hands down. The Democrats won the election the republicans won the twits.

    • Pendy1

      And the Dems won with only one out of three!

      • exboyracer

        Yeah right — it is obvious that the right didn’t learn much this go around. It that why Santorum and Jindal called you the stupid party.

  • Politits

    Don’t forget, they also won the “Unskewed Polls” too!

  • climate3

    If this is true, it’s probably because liberals spend our time working while some conservatives remain hunched over their computers drooling over the next piece of garbage to come out of Malkin’s pen. Just saying.

  • Lasaro ‘Laz’ Flores

    Good job, Republicans. Way to go! You’re still winners! Don’t let reality fool you.

  • Rick L.

    Oh man, I have got to RSS this site, it is just too funny. The comments are particularly amusing.

  • Adrian

    This can’t be serious. It’s like winning the Special Olympics while doping

  • Adrian

    poop is coming out

  • http://riveredges.com Larry Felton Johnson

    This is freakin’ hilarious. “We got crushed in the elections, but we won twitter!”

  • http://riveredges.com Larry Felton Johnson

    Congratulations folks. This article should win some sort of “More like an Onion article than the actual Onion articles”

  • Rickster Rickster

    LOL dominated twitter. many #tcot tweets are from lefty liberals like myself mocking the jerks in #tcot and their racist mind numbingly stupid lying uninformed tweets.

  • http://riveredges.com Larry Felton Johnson

    New hashtag #RidiculeTwitchy — It may not trend, but it’ll be fun

  • SeattleJeff

    Oh boy…another website dedicated to climbing B*LL SH*T Mountain. Cons are pathetic, mean, violent and nasty.

  • notgonna

    Has anyone covered the fact that many people use these tags for mocking ?

    Conservatives also won dumb quote of the year, and Politifacts lie of the year.

    So 47% of conservatives are riding around in Chinese made Jeeps dominating on Twitter.

    Good work guys!!!

    Now if you could just get the elections run like American Idol you guys would have it made.

  • Ricky Shambles

    I’m a liberal and I use #tcot regularly as a “Hey conservatives, check out what’s happening in foolishness on the right.” The fact that this article exists – a “yay us!” with hashtags as a metric – is a testament to the utter lack of understanding conservatives have when it comes to social media.

    grats on your “domination” of an online e-world.

  • fmahoney

    Sorry if we don’t believe your polls, the last time the republicans said they were ahead in polls, we all found out it was a BIG LIE!!! Maybe I will be able to see a big melt down on Fox Like Karl Rove election night. Ok guys off to Huffington post to see what going on with Susan Rice (Smile).
