    FiveThirtyEight is predicting that Republicans will pick up about 60 House seats (slightly better than expected). But the Democrats appear to be set to lose about 7 seats in the Senate...which means THEY are exceeding expectations there.

    I thought Rand Paul gave a really classy acceptance speech. Although I disagree with him on practically everything, he is one of the few Tea Partiers who I'm not disappointed to see get elected to the Senate. He obviously is a lot smarter than Sharron Angle or Ken Buck. And Rand Paul's opponent ran such a nasty campaign that it was really hard for me to root for him.

    Jim DeMint is talking to Wolf Blitzer right now, and he comes across as a huge douchebag. Yes, his opponent was a joke, but does he really need to say that "he's concerned" that his opponent got 29% of the vote? What an ass.

    Even if they mostly agree politically, the personality contrast between DeMint and Paul couldn't be greater.

    Just curious here, did you think similarly in 2006 when I believe it was time magazine was suggesting that Republicans were an endangered species and that the election was a referendum on the War and was a repudiation of the Republicans way of doing things?

    Cause this is arguably a larger result than what happened in 2006 or at least on par with it, and unlike 2006 the Republicans were picking up seats with solid conservatives (some of which knocked out moderate conservatives in primaries) where as many of the 2006 gains were from "blue dog" democrats that were moderates who ran conservative on some issues during the campaign? I think it'd be hard to say that people stating that back in 2006 was legitimate but suggesting this wasn't a repudiation of at least a certain degree of Obama's agenda.

    Wow, is Feingold really going to lose? Or did the Madison/Milwaukee votes not come in yet?

    I don't agree with many of Feingold's principles, but I can respect that he always seemed to be dedicated to what he believed and not a leaf in the wind politician.

    Kandahar, have you heard Alvin Green talk, or heard about his background, the charges against him, and all the other oddities in his campaign?

    A Black SC House Democrat went out to talk to Alvin Green shortly after he won the primary, thinking to establish a rapport with the new candidate. Afterward, he was said to have looked shell-shocked and to have said something like "Damn, that man's crazy."
