It Could Be Worse...I Think

Well, the Dems were slaughtered in the house.  If you want my opinion (okay, I know you don't, but I'm dishing it out anyway) there are two reasons for this.  First, the Republicans had the collaboration of the press and the Supreme Court- the first in convincing the American people to buy into a total lie about who is responsible for the mess we're in now, and the second in perhaps fatally corrupting the American electoral process, so that the Republicans, who have been screaming about Communism for seventy years, were able to let the Communists finance their overthrow of the government.  I guess the "Chicoms" can turn out to be pretty good friends when they're dishing out the money.

But there is another side to this story.  The (as usual) pathetic Democrats should have spent every day of the last two years reminding us that it was REPUBLICANS and their bogus economics that, as usual, got us into a near depression, and DEMOCRATS who, as usual, got us out.  Instead, they ran for cover like the cowards they are, and spent the time begging the Republicans to cooperate with them, thereby doing everything they could to help the Republicans make people forget who just caused their economy to collapse.  If the Democrats had just spent the last two years telling the truth to the American people, things would be a lot different today.  But since being scared out of their wits by Reagan, that's the one thing they cannot bring themselves to do, as simple as it seems.  And now, we are going to pay the price.

Well, now a little good news.  First of all, we're still sane in California. We did not sell our governor's office or one of our Senate seats to the highest bidder.  Also, we need to thank Connecticut voters, who also rejected another unqualified, self-financed rich person with more money than was good for them.  This is a real ray of sunshine in a cloudy sky...maybe we still live in a country where it isn't automatically possible to buy the government.  Let's hope people on our side take a lesson from this, and realize that we can beat the Republicans' juggernaut of cash when we try hard enough, because the numbers are, and will always be, on our side.

Also, even though the self-appointed eye doctor and all around loon Rand Paul suckered the apparently very stupid people in his state into electing him, Sharon Angle and Christine O'Donnell both lost pretty big, so maybe there is still some level of stupidity that makes teabagging jackasses unacceptable to the voters.

I have to note, however, that all five of the losing candidates I just mentioned are women.  Maybe along with being a pack of racists, Republicans are still too sexist to really support female candidates.  It sure seems to be a lot easier to con right wingers into sending you to Washington if you are a male wacko.

Finally, one sort of sad thing about Harry Reid beating Sharon Angle.  Yeah, he helped us keep control of the Senate, but the price is that he is still there.  Harry is a horrible majority leader, and it's a shame that we couldn't have replaced him.

Well, life goes on.  How many months do you think it will be before the impeachment hearings start?  Meanwhile, catch up on your sleep.  It's good for you.

Well, Paladino lost too -- and Buck still might.

Buck lost.

I'm proud of Massachuseets for not succumbing to the Tea Party hysteria.

President Obama's friend, Deval Patrick, easily won over his challenger, Charlie Baker.

And the candidate that Scott Brown backed for the 10th US House district--a seat once held by John Quincy Adams--lost as well.

That was satisfying.

Scott Brown's luster has diminished here in Massachusetts.
