The establishment will now go about muzzling the Tea Party and destroying any of their potential presidential candidates for 2012. Count on it.

So with a Republican majority in the House and Senate likely, let's move on to what we can expect from the next two years.

Obama will be vetoing anything drastic, such as trying to repeal the healthcare legislation, so it will be two years of gridlock and stagnation and a lot of finger-pointing at the executive branch on the part of the right. Something along the lines of, "we're trying to legislate and you're stopping it"; a fairly hypocritical tack considering the first two years of Obama's presidency.

The Republicans may have the ability to block funding for the healthcare legislation when the new federal budget has to be hashed out, so we may still see a Second Great Healthcare Showdown in Congress.

What kind of shape the Republican Party is in running up to 2012 will be interesting to see. How will the Tea Party base handles being treated like a dirty whore and kicked to the curb post-election? Hint: ask the religious right how they deal with this every post-election.

1. I don't think the GOP will get 51 in the Senate.



2. Marco Rubio does well on a stage and knows how to campaign, look for him to be on a national ticket and draw broad support.

Obama has been campaigning with driving metaphors.

"You put your can in D to go forward
and R to go backwards."

Well, I'm waiting for a pundit to say he got his driver's license revoked.

My dream would be that Libertarians would get 51 in the Senate.

If the GOP win tonight, that would be much better than the alternative.

I disagree with socially conservative politics on basically every point: capital punishment, gay rights, abortion, etc.

I resent their almost unanimous conclusion that I'm an elitist non-American because I live in the northeast and support Democrats.

I'm insulted by their embrace and celebration of ignorance.

-their bullshit claims of individual liberty (except when it comes to your own body or what you do privately in your home).

-their claim of fiscal responsibility (except when it comes to helping their President hide the cost of two wars from the budget and therefore the deficit and debt).

-their wanton worship of large corporations over small businesses and entrepreneurs (and now of Corps. over the individual with the Supreme Court's Citizens United ruling).

Agreed, (most) Republicans are the worst.

Michele Bachmann GOP Tea Party favorite wins re-election.

Perhaps she will get a chairmanship and can start to subpoena some trouble makers.

The new speaker of the House, Rep John Boener from Ohio is giving his victory speech. He is talking about the American Dream. He is crying, now.

If Obama cried, he'd be called a gay, sissy Kenyan socialist.
