(okay, I lied. One more post tonight.)
1994 was, by popular acclaim, the “Republican Revolution”. What have we witnessed tonight?
Even assuming the GOP takes Montana and Virginia, I believe that the following is true:
Number of Democratic congressional seats lost: zero
Number of formerly-Democratic open congressional seats lost: zero
Number of Democratic gubernatorial seats lost: zero
Number of formerly-Democratic gubernatorial seats lost: zero
I invite corrections, but to the best of my knowledge, this has never happened in an election in this country before.
Ladies and gentlemen, I’d like to welcome you all to: The Great Shut-Out of 2006.
