Here's what happens in a lop-sided election... Barbara-fucking-Comstock won!

Last night was not a "wave election" most places but in Virginia it was. A guy whose platform as Attorney General was a promise to not enforce the gun laws won by 17%.
When the top election--governor, in this case--is such a one-sided bummer (McConnell closed at 99.2% on Intrade) Democrats stay home and weird things happen down-ticket.
In 1980 and 1994 a lot of Republican psychos who were just running as an excuse to get out of the house more were quite surprised to find themselves winning races when things broke hard in the last week.
Anyway, my bete noir, Barbara Fucking Comstock actually eked out a close win because all the Dems stayed home.
She's that rat-faced lady who was a spokesman for Ashcroft and for Delay. She's been on cable TV for years promoting torture and book-burning and such. One of the worst.
And now an office-holder from a NoVa district that Obama probably carried 60-40.
