23. Brian Bilbray isn't going to just lose, but he is going to be tortured in a long drawn out loss

that will end up in his losing with less than 1000 votes.


Slow lingering painful.


I would have settled for a quick end, but this is pretty good.

http://www.cnn.com/election/2012/results/state/CA/house

I got a special bonus. I watched FOX news non stop on Tuesday night. I would have paid pay per view rates to see that melt down.

If they make a movie out of it that is going to be the highlight.

31. My young daughter voted for her first time for President Obama!

It is the beginning of her interest in politics. She came over today and shared with me all the wonderful things her young friends are saying about Obama and how she was so glad she voted for him. This is the same daughter I took with me to Pittsburgh in "08". We stayed in line for three hours in the freezing cold to get a glimpse of the young Senator Obama when he was running the first time. She is in college, will remain on my medical insurance, and gets student loans to attend college. President Obama won, thank God!

The President has provided a response, through his accomplishments and reelection, to those in the GOP discounting the value of community organizing. (I'm winking at you, Gemma.)

34. 1. The demographics of Texas

I can't figure out how to get this map here rather than there, but, check it out.

http://www.politico.com/2012-election/results/house/texas/

This is a thing of beauty. I'm willing to bet that within 8 years Texas will be a swing state. Texas.

2. They Republicans have learned nothing. Right now they're raving about how, "It was voter fraud! The Black Panthers stole it!" No, wait, "The Democrats suppressed the vote!" Oh no, it's that, "Democrats are just lazy, they want stuff for free." No, no, no. It was that, "We weren't conservative enough!"

Not conservative enough? They ran candidates that were pro-slavery. They had people who wanted to ban contraception, and repeal the 19th Amendment. They had one guy who wanted the government to grant parents the right to execute their own children for disrespectful behavior.

These are not people who will change anything. They'll continue to alienate and antagonize voters. There will never be enough of them who realize that being the party of angry, frightened, old white men is a strategy with diminishing returns. And the best part is, they did it to themselves. They would be better able to respond if they hadn't spent literally decades listening to their own biases and prejudices parroted back to them. They're not emotionally capable of handling the truth, so they only listen to 'news' that hews to their preconceived notions.

They are going the way of the Whigs. They're even now spiraling into extremism and irrelevancy. They'll become less and less of a force as time goes on. If they do nothing, which is very likely, within 30 years there will be no Republican party at all.

35. As a life long Texan - I am very, very hopeful!

I would SO like my beloved Texas to return to its proper roots and become blue again.

Texas became red after the immigration of a bunch of idiots from some other states, after they'd screwed up the areas where they came from. I know this because I am old enough to remember!

37. Despite Citizens United, voter suppression, congress obstruction, and 4 years of non-stop slandering

and bigoted remarks about Obama, the Republicans lost. And now they'll never be able to successfully compare Obama's presidency with Carter's and paint our 1st black president as a failure.

paint our 1st black president as a failure


George W Bush had 2 terms, a fact that didn't diminish his being a miserable failure as a President, even if his political operation was sufficiently effective, if corrupt.

Barack's still got a lot of problems facing him. (we...us)
