Some folks apparently can’t accept defeat. Follow me after the Joan Holloway (orange and curvy!) for all the horrid details…

BRANSON, MO – Cold but sunny is the forecast for Monday, as Branson, Mo., welcomes patriotic, liberty-loving revelers for America’s first Nonguration, an alternative celebration to what will be going on in our former nation’s capital. Proper Americans may have to wait another four years “to get their country back,” but the Nonguration promises to provide hours of entertainment for those weary of reality.

Live acts: Family-values icon Lee Greenwood, his current wife, three ex-wives, numerous mistresses, and six known children will lead the crowd in a rousing version of “God Bless the U.S.A.”

The Chair Clint Eastwood yelled at during the Republican National Convention will take center stage at 10:30 a.m. Mr. Eastwood declined invitation, however, so the shouting duties will be performed by Chuck Norris, who will first holler at the chair and then karate-chop it into toothpick-sized pieces, which will be available at concession stands shortly thereafter for $17.76 per bag.

The Ohio State marching band will put on a special patriotic performance, culminating with Karl Rove dotting the “I” in the O-H-I-O script.

Sheldon Adelson and the Koch Brothers will join forces and perform a medley of Pink Floyd’s “Money,” Cyndi Lauper’s “Money Changes Everything,” and Mr. Adelson’s own composition, “I Gave that Twit How Much Exactly?”

Hank Williams Jr. promises to bring down the house with a special version of his fun-loving “All My Rowdy Friends”/“Monday Night Football” theme: “Are You Ready for Some Romney?”

Young – and young at heart! – patriots will love the Kids’ Fun Zone, a designated area featuring trampolines, fireworks, skateboard ramps, and small-caliber weaponry. Sure to be a favorite in this area is the Math is Gay booth, manned by Professor Nate Gold, who will teach kids that math and science are overrated and to always go by their hunches. And once kids have had their fill of nonlearning, they’ll be rarin’ to line up at the George Will Dunk Tank. For 25 cents a ball – or 3 for a dollar – kids can take their best shot at putting lovable Unky George in the water. Parents, be advised to bring your own first-aid kids, helmets, etc. for your children in this area. None will be provided on-site, just as God intended.

Also: Sarah Palin.

And, finally, at 12:00 noon, not 45th President of the United States Willard “Mitt” Romney will be sworn in by the Honorable Judge Joseph Wapner.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    If they were a majority, then maybe they'd be secessionists, but since they are a small minority, maybe they should consider emigration.
    30-40 years ago it was quite common fro RWNJs to shout at us "counterculture types", "Love It or Leave It", well, right back atcha.
    Buh Bye!

    University, I take great offense to being characterized as Right-Wing U.  Sure, most of the people commonly associated with my alma mater- Woody Hayes, Jim Tressel, Chris Spielman (I think current football coach Urban Meyer is a right-winger as well; he DID coach Tim Tebow)- are well-known conservatives, but it's a tad bit unfair to paint all Buckeyes with a broad brush.  Voting totals from the last two Presidential election cycles show that the vast majority of students on campus supported Obama, and I can personally attest to the fact that many alumni (including one legendary football player) and current faculty members volunteered several hours on his campaign.  Plus, I just refuse to accept that a band that would put on something as awesome as THIS ( would ever hang out with the likes of Bocephus and Karl Rove.  Not cool, man.  Not cool.

    And believe just what they say.
    They're Corporate America, & they've bought the U.S.A.
    And when they tell me to, I stand up - 'cause I got no self control
    They're Corporate America, & they own me, body & soul!

    Yaaayyy! Yippeee! Play Ball!
