Yeah, that doesn’t look that bad.  Here are the keys back!

Actually, all joking aside, the Democrats did plenty to bring this on themselves.  And in a two-party system, to hold one political party accountable, you have to turn to the other political party.  Even if that is the very same party you rejected just two years before.  Really, I’m not sure I would have a problem with flip-flopping control every couple of years until one party demonstrates some ability to get it right.

Also, Christine O’Donnell lost.  For that matter, so did Meg Whitman, Carly Fiorina, and Sharron Angle.  Not a good night for the “mama grizzlies”.  Not a great night for papa grizzlies either (that late endorsement Tom Tancredo sure didn’t accomplish anything and even in Alaska, where you would think a Palin endorsement would actually have some value, Joe Miller looks like he is going to lose to a write-in candidate, albeit the incumbent).  Looks like a little less than 50% of  the Palin endorsed candidates won.  No better than a flip of a coin.  Though from what I read, Good Morning America thought that was impressive.  That’s just evidence that it is really the America media that is infatuated with Sarah Palin, not the American people.  I sometimes forget that!

Anyway, whether you like the results or hate the results, the good news is that we all get the opportunity to change things up again in two years if we so desire.
