What other word describes what happened yesterday?
As liberal pundit Eugene Robinson said last night on MSNBC, this was “shellacking part II.”
With the exception of Juan Williams all concede that Campaign 2014 was a wave election for the Republicans. When it is all said and done the Republicans will most likely end up with a net gain of 9 senate seats. A gain that few said were possible.
I say few.
There were some who did.
I can’t really say who, because I hate when people say “I told you.”
It’s unbecoming conduct and something I would never partake in.
I have class.
Seriously, the reason yesterday’s results qualify as a wave is the Republicans won races they were supposed to lose. They were projected to have a net loss of 2 governorships and instead picked up 3.
A REPUBLICAN WON THE GOVERNOR’S RACE IN ILLIONIOS!
Is there any greater evidence of a wave existence than that?
Republicans picked up 12 congressional seats giving them their largest majority in the House since 1928.
While Speaker of the House, John Boehner, said; “this is not a time for celebration.”
I’m going to take a day to be joyful.
The Republicans have a lot of work ahead of them, but the country has given them a chance to show what they can do…if they work together.
Time will tell, but for today, let’s be happy:
