  1. GOP elites? Please. The Democrats have had a supermajority for how long, now? They’ve only burdened us with more debt.

    Philip, I just got back from voting. To my eternal shame, I helped vote Harry Mitchell into office for his first term; he didn’t listen to me this time. Hopefully Arizona will put David Schweikert in his seat tonight.

  2. Hi all, checking in! Sorry about Christine O’Donnell. I really thought she would pull it off despite projection polls.

    But 60 seats in the House is so amazing! 54 seats in 1994.

  3. After her comments about witchcraft and masturbation, I kinda knew she was gonna lose. I agree that she’s allowed to believe as she wishes, and personal views should not be held against her – but even some conservatives I know thought she was half a bubble off plum.

  4. Oh, so do I. The problem is that she, like Sharron Angle, needs to learn to keep her personal life to herself. Talking about witchcraft is alright in Sunday school. On a political forum? Not so much. Plus, masturbation is practically a requirement in today’s society, so admitting you don’t do it and don’t think others should makes her sound a little uptight.

    Of course, there’s also the fact that abstaining from activities with your right hand makes certain other activities MUCH more intense, but everything is about living in the moment now.

  5. Oh, man…if only Angle had kept her freakin’ mouth shut! Of course, if her complaint is correct about Harrah’s casinos putting pressure on their employees to vote early and vote Reid, that election could end up back in the air again.
