Why don't I feel happier than I do? Our PINO is calling for a bipartisan meeting this Friday -"Let's all make nice and help me continue the fundamental destruction of this country..." McConnell and Boehner won't have time to whip the new ones into shape to be big suck-ups like they are. What's a mother to do???
PINO is calling for a bipartisan meeting this Friday Should tell him to get lost.
Congratulations on the loss of your witch. IMO, if Tillis opposes Mr. Obenghazi 96% of the time he'll be okay.

Congrats! Didn't think you'd get it done!
Virginia still hasn't been called, but viewing the counties where the results aren't complete, it seems the Dems will win.
Brock, you are correct, her replacement does leave much to be desired. But there is satisfaction to be had, in seeing her humbled by defeat. I do wish that she gets what she deserves and in full measure. I would attend a neck tie social were she the guest of honor.

Only things still missed are beer, brats and Southern blues music.
We can do beer and a Pig Pickin' if you can furnish the blues. :)

Vox sums up why I am not jumping up and down for joy today - let us not forget that not so long ago the Repubs had the presidency and Congress, and what a mess they made. Bad enough that the Dems took back the Congress in 2006 and ramrodded us into the Great Fall that put Obama in office:"It would be nice if the Republicans would attempt to do more with their newly won Congressional power than they did the last time they held both House and Senate, but given their objectives, I have no expectation whatsoever that they'll even do something as trivial as overturn Obamacare. Indeed, I rather expect them to dig the hole deeper. Consider the words of the new Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell:"This experiment in big government has lasted long enough. It's time to go in a new direction," McConnell boomed to supporters in his victory speech. But he sounded a conciliatory note as well, adding that while he and the president rarely see eye to eye, "we do have an obligation to work together on issues where we can agree." "It's time for government to start getting results and implementing solutions to the challenges facing our country, starting with our still-struggling economy," [House Majority Leader] Boehner added.Translation: immigration amnesty and free trade. From the same article:While Republicans are likely to cooperate on issues like tax reform, the party will seek to breathe life into their stalled jobs bills, to gain approval of the delayed Keystone XL pipeline, roll back some carbon emission regulations and tweak Obamacare. Well, that's certainly an ambitious program that is all but guaranteed to completely turn things around, isn't it? It's fascinating how they've managed to completely evade addressing every single aspect of American decline...."IMHO, if the leaders remain the same (McConnell and Boehner), we are still screwed as a Nation - Cruz and Lee, someone, please do something worthy of your mandate.
I'm afraid we'll only slow down the descent.
Congress is irrelevant unless it has spmething to do with constricting OUR freedom. Or enriching themselves at our expense.
God forbid that the day should ever come when to be true to my constituents is to be hostile to the Union. If, sir, we have reached that hour in the progress of our institutions, it is past the age to which the Union should have lived. If we have got to the point when it is treason to the United States to protect the rights and interests of our constituents, I ask why should they longer be represented here? why longer remain a part of the Union? If there is a dominant party in this Union which can deny to us equality, and the rights we derive through the Constitution; if we are no longer the freemen our fathers left us; if we are to be crushed by the power of an unrestrained majority, this is not the Union for which the blood of the Revolution was shed; this is not the Union I was taught from my cradle to revere; this is not the Union in the service of which a large portion of my life has been passed; this is not the Union for which our fathers pledged their property, their lives, and sacred honor. No, sir, this would be a central Government, raised on the destruction of all the principles of the Constitution, and the first, the highest obligation of every man who has sworn to support that Constitution would be resistance to such usurpation. This is my position.Jefferson Davis ~ In the Senate of the United States, June 27, 1850, on the Compromise Bill ~ Congressional Globe, p. 995-6

Hey Brock, Congrats on kicking the hag to the curb! While the rest of the country made a rightish turn, Oregon doubled down on the liberal hippie douchebags. My last hope for the country, Art Robinson, was defeated. :(
