Not that tonight hasn't been full of great developments, but why oh why couldn't the American public have had their flashes of insight two years ago?

fear.

pure, abject fear of another 9-11. when the Republicans say, in effect, "vote for us or you'll be killed by terrorists," it's kind of a stark choice.

and Kerry, while a fine debater, wasn't a terribly good candidate.

Yeah, Bush's campaign was all about instilling fear in the voters...which...ironically, isn't that the same tactic of the terrorists???

And to Kerry. I wanted Dennis to win. But I guess the country wasn't ready for a Catholic Vegan President.

Agreed. I've said time and time again that the GOP spin machine is frighteningly powerful and effective.

I used to be completely immersed in politics, but was so discouraged by the '04 results, I had to give it a rest. I haven't followed much of the race prior to tonight, but I hope the Dems have learned a few lessons in PR since '04 that will serve them well in '08.

Good work for democracy, now to test those pre-election platitudes.

it's true. much of Republican successes over the past 6 years have been due to superior organization and Democratic blunders, and George Bush has always, always been very fortunate in his enemies.

am just dying to see what the WH reaction will be.

and the first thing they all need to do is fire the fuck out of Rumsfeld.

Balance of power in the Senate may depend on Virginia. A race headed for a recount.

Now the fun starts.

HEY!! Now that Dems have control of the house...can we start talking impeachment?


I don't quite remember the procedure exactly, but it starts with the legislative branch...that's all I know.

Apparently we'll have to wait till tomorrow for reaction, because GW is taking this evening to pout. That notion fills me with far more glee than it ought to.

so lamont can be CT senator.


So looks like Mo is swinging dem and STL hasn't yet reported. I'm probably going to bed after they call it, trusting MT to be ours and that VA won't be ours for sure for weeks.

CT numbers are itneresting, some really close races.

Yeah...I don't know how I suddenly forgot about that. I guess I shouldn't get too carried away too soon.
