    Many bitter defeats there for the Rs.

    NY01 and 23, PA12, AZ08, KY06, all could have been ours, and I think will be, in 2012.

    I also gave heavily to McClung AZ07, and she lost by less than the vote totals for the libertarian and Constitution party candidates.

    She will win in 2012, too, I hope. Might get a little boost from redistricting.

    I’d like to see 20-25 more house seats flip, and another 15 Senate. With the right candidates and a conservative message that we actually stick to instead of ignore, all that is possible.

    Spending and immigration are what is killing us, and the corruption that causes it.

    So far, the GOP has not done much to give reasonable assurance it will resist on those fronts.

    I was really surprised that Critz won.

    And how many of those 13 won by the Communists was through cheating?

    “And how many of those 13 won by the Communists was through cheating?”

    likely all of them….. the close ones that R’s won the Donks were ofthier cheating game……

    ❛Senate debate over repealing the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy will have to wait until next year, Minority Leader Mitch McConnel predicted on Sunday.❜

    So much for the laser-like focus on fiscal concerns over social political-footballs we were promised. What’s next; a debate on witchcraft practice on Tuesdays?

    No one promised you anything, puss.

    Your act is really old and pathetic. Please keep embarassing yourself.
