Great News for Republicans

We'll start with the utter horseshit from the Villagers

Dems, incumbents get wake-up call - Yahoo! News:

Nothing of the sort, news media assholes.

"Deep Thought

After tonight's elections results, Joe Biden must resign, Sarah Palin must be confirmed as his replacement, and then Barack Obama must resign. The people have spoken."


The AP's only premise: What if Dems lose on Tuesday? | Media Matters for America:
"UPDATED: What's also astonishing, and this is absolutely ignored by the press, is that the NJ race is only close today becuase the GOP candidate has lost a double-digit lead in recent months. It's only close because the GOP candidate's campaign has imploded since the summertime. But the press doesn't care about that, or what that might say about the GOP. The press only cares if Dems lose."

Great news for Republicans.

Democratic win in conservative district is first since 1871 | Raw Story:
"The Democratic victory for a retired Air Force captain was the first for Democrats since 1871."

This seat, historically, has been Republican. Dems won it last cycle and again this time. But, somehow, this is great news for Republicans.

Democrat Garamendi Cruises in California 10 - Yahoo! News:

"Lt. Gov. John Garamendi kept California's 10th Congressional District in Democratic hands, easily winning the special election to fill an open seat."

Excellent news for the teabaggers.

Breckenridge, Colorado voters legalize marijuana, paraphernalia | Raw Story:

"Voters in the ski resort town of Breckenridge, Colorado legalized marijuana and marijuana paraphernalia by a nearly three-to-one margin on Tuesday.

It is the first municipality in the United States to allow paraphernalia, such as pipes, bongs and bubblers.

'[The measure] passed 73 percent to 27 percent,' ABC 7 News in Denver reported."

But there are lessons to be learned. I'm looking at your Creigh Deeds (Worse. Campaign. Ever)

Daily Kos: State of the Nation:

There will be much number-crunching tomorrow, but preliminary numbers (at least in Virginia) show that GOP turnout remained the same as last year, but Democratic turnout collapsed. This is a base problem, and this is what Democrats better take from tonight:

1. If you abandon Democratic principles in a bid for unnecessary 'bipartisanship', you will lose votes.

2. If you water down reform in favor of Blue Dogs and their corporate benefactors, you will lose votes.

3. If you forget why you were elected -- health care, financial services, energy policy and immigration reform -- you will lose votes.

Tonight proved conclusively that we're not going to turn out just because you have a (D) next to your name, or because Obama tells us to. We'll turn out if we feel it's worth our time and effort to vote, and we'll work hard to make sure others turn out if you inspire us with bold and decisive action.

The choice is yours. Give us a reason to vote for you, or we sit home. And you aren't going to make up the margins with conservative voters. They already know exactly who they're voting for, and it ain't you."

Bazooka vs. Spork comes to mind.

Bush, Clinton Debate At Radio City In February:

"Former presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush will go head to head in a debate at Radio City Music Hall next February, as part of a series pairing liberal and conservative thinkers called 'Minds That Move The World.'"
