First it was not as bad as I thought. OK, Dems lost a few seats and the Blue Dogs got hammered, but that no reason to panic. 1. Dem Leadership triumphed. Pelosi and Redi were big winners, they should be rewarded with their maintaining their leadership roles 2. Blue Dogs got vaporized. Good riddance to Bush-Lite. They're not the Dem base so no need to pander any more 3. The further Left, the bigger the Win! Meg and Carly tried to buy elections in CA and Carl Paladino and the Tea Party tried to take NY, both lost and lost big. Key to success: Leftward Ho! (I don't mean that Meg is a ho, I don't want to get in trouble like Jerry Brown) 4. Dems need to quit pretending they're fiscal moderates, they know government knows best and need to keep highlight that!
