Amply be-chinned Mitch McConnell wins the Senate Again

Only a stable genius like the Russian Usurper could see losing the House as being a tremendous victory:

We won’t know the full count till later, but inspite of ourselves, we Dims are on track to have somewhere around 230 seats in the House. And when he tweets next we have 5,000 Quatloos sayin That, Preznint Stupid will pass the buck to Zombie-eyed Granny-starver Paul Ryan. (Its an expression: we all know the cheap bastard never actually hands a buck to anyone.)

But back to that tremendous success: besides the Dims flipping the House, we elected Sharice Davids and Deb Haaland to be the first and second Native American women to Congress and Jared Polis to be the first openly gay governor in Colorado. Florida approved a state constitutional amendment to restore voting rights to 1.4 million people convicted of felonies. The states of Kansas, Illinois, and Michigan flipped to to Democrats for governors. Oh, and the biggest part of that tremendous succes: House Oversight Chairman Elijah Cummings. House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler. House Rules Chairman Jim McGovern. House Ways and Means Chairman Richard Neal. House Banking Committee Chairman Maxine Waters. The Democrats now have subpoena power, and will use it to great effect!

Besides all that tremendous success, the GOP did keep the Senate, with the defeat of most of the Blue Dog Dims, so amply be-chinned Mitch McConnell’s grasp on power and the ability to stack the courts continues apace.  Ayatollah Ted beat dreamy skateboarder Beto O’Rourke, and the racists in Florida elected a racist Gubnor and the ghoulish batboy to the Senate.

We might not have won the Senate, but we have this moment to enjoy for all eternity when Pravda, er, Fox News ate a maggot sandwich as they announced that the New Confederacy lost the house:

So we got that workin’ for us.

      I wish the Blue Wave had been bigger, but winning the House means a living hell for Trump in the next two years, and a chance — a chance — to save our Country from fascism. We got the minimum to stay in the fight It’s still soberinging that so many people voted for the GOP.

    And Maine and New Mexico. And maybe Wisconsin. And it’s possible Georgia may go to a runoff.

    State governments matter. Remember the 2020 redistricting.

    Yes, it’s terribly disappointing that Gillum and Beto didn’t win, but overall we blew the bastards out of the water in every arena except the Senate, where they had a map which massively favored them.

    Texas came within a couple percentage points of dumping Cruz. We’ve finally shown that with a big enough get-out-the-vote effort, Texas can be turned purple. And if the Republicans can’t count on Texas, in the long run they’re doomed as a national party.

    This was a win. Take it as such.

      Not sure what you mean by that.
      There won’t be impeachment, that would be a waste of time and political capital. If impeachment passed the house and went to the Senate it would have all the landing impact of a helium balloon. I do wish Nancy could find a way to explain that.
      I saw, elsewhere, an explanation of that very thing and a suggestion to focus on legislation, the main work of the House. Don’t they do budgets? Don’t they ‘originate’ tax law changes? There are things that the House can be doing, legislation, certain investigations, publicizing why they are not wasting time on impeachment proceedings.
      Seriously I think Nancy needs to try speaking at the Millionaire’s Club in Seattle, see how her delivery goes over there. Is that still open?

      Miroker-

      All states have pluses and minuses, and we need good people everywhere to help make all states better! Consider yourself deputized and in the resistance behind enemy lines (or something)—and thank you for your work there on the battlefront!

      The real work of activism happens in places like Florida, not in solid blue states like Washington (well, Seattle…)

      Rgds,

    It is a victory for the folks who run the propaganda machine that drives all this mess. It will be a lot easier to blame the Dems for everything the Repugs are doing, after al, THEY CONTROL THE HOUSE.

    Well, the Senate elections in AZ, MT and FL are all still too close to call and FL is headed for a recount (doesn’t mean Nelson will win, however). WI did get rid of its leading Koch Industries employee.
    And I think you forgot mention Adam Schiff is the likely new House Intelligence Committee Chair replacing the execrable Devin Nunes (who won his re-election).
