The GOP Rides The Wave!

By Wyatt Earp | November 3, 2010

As of right now (1:00am), the GOP won 57 House seats, giving them control and putting Nancy Pelosi on the unemployment lines. The GOP also took 6 Senate seats, not enough to give them control, but that was a long-shot anyway. Some polls are still open, so these numbers may change. As it stands now, this is the biggest turnover for the GOP since World War II. It’s huge, folks.

The good news is that people like Alan Grayson, Blanche Lincoln, Charlie Crist, and Russ Feingold are gone. Locally, PA went blood red, electing Pat Toomey to the Senate and Tom Corbett governor. (And Randal will appreciate the fact that Patrick Murphy will soon be an ex-congressmen.) That being said, Harry Reid, Barbara Boxer and Barney Frank got reelected. Locally, Dee Adcock lost to the despicable Allyson Schwartz. You take the good with the bad.

Overall, it is shaping up to be a damned fine night. And I’ll say this now, and probably repeat it during the next few years: You got a gift tonight, GOP. DO. NOT. FRAK. IT. UP!

    I don’t know Wyatt. I hope you’re right.

    But I think we are like a boxer who has been getting beat for the last 11 rounds. We are way behind on points. We need a knock-out to win.

    Did we get the knock out? I don’t think so. We rallied and hit our opponent with one hell of a flurry of punches. We definitely won this last round.

    But we didn’t get the knock out.

    So in the end, we lost.

    McMahon lost. Bilat lost. Whitman lost. Fioriana lost. Angle lost. Miller is loosing.

    These were the big punches we needed to land for a knock out.

    I fear whatever points we gained in this election aren’t enough for the ultimate victory.

    I think that anyone who honestly looks at what lies in front of us will see only blood, toil, tears and sweat.

    We do ourselves no favors with unwarrented optimism. But we must drive forward.

    We can do no more, and must accept nothing less.

    If you think I’m too grim, so be it. There is a time for cheering, and a time for sober reflection of the task that lies ahead. But we can all take sustenance for the task ahead from this.

    Frack it all…

    Let’s just stipulate that it was a smokin’ hot picture of Christina Hendricks in a pretty erotic state of undress and just leave it at that, OK?

    I just “googled” Christina Hendrics” images and there is a nice one of her in a er… bedroom moment.

    Second row, fifth from the left.

    Screw it. I’m going to bed.

    Looks like the GOP tsunami lost momentum once west of the Rockies. Of course, I only say that because that fucking dolt Boxer won and we now have 70′s retread Gov Moonbeam………and naturally, the pot legalization ballot masure went down in flames up in smoke.

    To hell with pot- I’d need to mainline black tar heroin between now and 2012 to dull the pain of my vote being canceled by 20 lib-tard dolts up in San Francisco…

    Or vote with my feet.

    One of the candidates I volunteered for and donated alot of FenwayBucks to won handily to unseat a Cap & Trade and 0bamacare supporting Dem in upstate NY.

    New Hampshire apparently remains the sole bastion of sanity in New England, with a clean sweep of the House and Senate.

    Lots of good news regarding the house and alot of Governor races……just now where I’m at (for now).

    This is just the beginning. The sleeping giant (WE the People) has been awakened and will continue the struggle to regain control of the governments (I include the states). In two years we will have the opportunity to sweep the houses of government a little cleaner. Maybe we will remove a few more liberals from the senate… both demorcrat and RINO. We must continue to unite and stand by the non-professional politicians if we are to save The Republic from Euro-Socialism.

    Ed – I look at it this way. Instead of focusing upon the negatives, accentuate the positives. Am I happy that Reid and Boxer won? Of course not. But we are looking at a 60+ seat gain in the House. We took a decent amount of Senate seats, and good people – Marco Rubio, Pat Toomey, Allen West – are serving the country now. We weren’t going to win every race, but if nothing else, in 2012 Obama cannot claim he was stifled by a GOP-controlled Senate and Congress.

    Fenway – Amazingly, New York landed a few GOP wins, and 16 state legislators went for the GOP. Don’t knock that, and don’t feel depressed. Jerry Brown is taking over California. Trust me, the main will fail miserably, and the state will contuine the economic plunge Arnold started. Places like California and Massachusetts are lost. They’re never coming back. Accept it and move on.

    GroovyVic – Corbett is a no-nonsense guy in the mold of Christie – albeit a skinnier mold. I met the man a few times – he was out AG – and he is good people. I think he will whip the state back into shape, but to do that, he’ll have to cut a lot of fat. I suspect the more powerful unions won’t like him.

    Robert B. – For me, the Tea Party is the best thing that has happened in American politics in a long time. They held Democrat and Republicans’ feet to the fire. If the GOP screws up in Congress again, they’ll be there to challenge their seats. And that’s a good thing.

    Mrs. Crankipants – He is expected to hold a presser at 1pm today. I guarantee he’ll spin this wave, saying it was not a referendum on his policies. Won’t work, but that’s what he’ll do.

    The best part is that Obama won’t change. He’ll keep trying to ram through his disastrous economic policies through, setting up his (hopeful) defeat in 2012.

    If nothing else, the Repubs controlling the House should prevent Obama from enacting his more radical agenda items for the next two years. That’s worth something. But I have little to no confidence that Boehner and most other House Republicans will be able to (or will even try very hard to) get the federal overspending under some control. The Republican leadership has been in power before and screwed up big time — let’s hope they’ve learned their lesson, but being politicans, I doubt it.

    Roger – I agree. No night will be perfect, but it’s the biggest gain the GOP has had in 62 years.

    Jim – If they go back to their 2006 ways, I’ll be extolling Tea Party candidates to come in and sweep the GOP out.

    Crusty – Probably looking for something a little stronger – like meth.

    Well Pelosi is out as Speaker so that is a wonderful thing. But California as a whole is going right off the cliff. Amazing to look at that map and see that it is mostly red in Cali, but the blue areas have all the people so we end up with Boxer and Moonbeam. I think I am going to look for a job in another state. But I can’t sell my damn house for even close to what I paid for it.

    I have just figured it all out and can now place the blame. The massive Republican and Tea Party victories last night are all the fault of President George W. Bush and Dick Cheney!

    I saw someone on a news show try to say it wasn’t a win for the GOP but the independents, and it cracked me up because I thought, “God, they can’t even admit defeat by the GOP when it’s staring them in the face, let alone being graceful about it.”

    There is a time for celebration — my mom’s district got rid of that corrupt Kanjorski (who is best known for steering earmarks to family members, who then promptly bankrupt the companies that got the earmarks) and put in Sweet Lou Barletta, the anti-illegals mayor of Hazleton. I may have to pay a visit to Joey Vento and have one wid for Lou.

    There are several independent senators who are now going to become the ‘Darlings’ of both parties. If they
    swing Republican we have the majority if not the dems keep it. So they will be wined and dined by both parties
    and therein lies the key. So all is not totally lost in the senate yet.

    Ingineer66 – It’s a damned shame what happened to California, but it’s not like it’s a mystery as whose fault it is.

    Watuschskie – Rove, you magnificent bastard!

    DL474 – Anything they can do to spin the results. They said the 2006 midterms were slaughters, and those Dem pickups didn’t even come close to this.

    Bob – I was hoping he would win that race. Kanjorski was one of those alleged “Blue Dogs” who turned their backs on their constituents and voted for ObamaCare.

    Jon – Now if we could only get rid of the Maine sisters . . .
