    The results of the election were definitely a mixed bag. Clearly the Republican party did well in the house, but did not have a particularly strong showing in the Senate, losing most of the close races and not coming close to taking the Senate.
    The more interesting thing to come out of this election is to see what direction the GOP takes....if the teabaggers are able to push the GOP further to the right, I think that this would be very good for the Democrats and lefties like me. The more linked the GOP is to Sarah Palin and the fringe groups, the better for us...in fact, I hope that Palin feels a surge and rides it to the party's nomination. 2012 should be fun.
    You said they would narely pick up enough to win the house........Blew that predeiction to hell but what else is new when it comes to your predictions............Last nights election where a direct rejection of Hussein Obama socialism............

    no such thing as a pro life dem, a moderate dem, a southern or rocky mountain dem (except for a lost and lonely outpost in denver, surrounded by rising red)

    only a ranting remnant of "professional left" out to "punish its enemies"

    except it got spanked

    pathetic

    I don't agree. This was about as big a rout as you'll ever see. The fact that there was even a question of whether the Republicans would take the Senate until they counted the votes was an unbelievably strong showing for the Republicans.

    BTW, this makes me sad.

    It was the biggest pick up of seats in the house... ever.
    That's a rout... the GOP also taking the Senate would have been an absolute disaster.

    No, the '10 midterms wasn't a rout... the GOP also taking the Senate would have been a rout.

    and anyway, I don't see why either side still gets overly excited and emotional over this.. it's the same cycle the Ds and Rs go through ever few years.

    You speak of statistics Disney, lets see them.



    America has kicked out the moderates by and large from both countries, leaving the house of representitives with stauch ideological conservatives and staunch ideological democrats with little moderates at all...and the message of that is "CENTRIST!"?



    You accept it because its supposed to win you races in "moderate" districts that would take a moderate liberal over a staunch conservative.

    ....wait a second, didn't almost all the blue dogs lose to staunch conservatives.

    it must be because the countries moderate and centrist.



    No, its not a mandate to move the country to the hard right in total. Its a mandate to move the country right, in general, on fiscal and governmental issues.

    Your wrong, the pick up by the Republicans is the most by either party since 1948.......
