abb3w: Alas, Michele Bachmann managed to persevere.
Mentat: The only thing that saved the GOP last night was redistricting.
sammyk: Anybody find a list of how the 2010 teaparty freshmen did? I'm hoping for a whole lot of one and done.
NeverDrunk23: abb3w: Alas, Michele Bachmann managed to persevere.When your team hits a game winning home run, you don't lament how he dirtied his shoes as he rounds the bases.
spongeboob: abb3w: Alas, Michele Bachmann managed to persevere.And Steve King.
Citrate1007: Bachmann eked out a win.........farking harpy.
sammyk: Not as big a beating as I was hoping for.
OutLawSuit: At least Bachmann will be a source of amusement for the next 2 years. She's harmless at this point.
somedude210: When you wake up to hearing that the American people have decided against rape as a political policy, that working classes should be represented, that prohibition is stupid, that equality should be for all people regardless and that we have another 4 years of an improving, worthwhile growth as a nation; it renews your faith in the people and this country. It's morning in America and I couldn't be happier.Good morning, America. I missed you.
Headso: teabaggers getting in during the 2010 election were like the roommate that doesn't drink who wakes up early and eats all your cereal then shiat in the shower and complain about the smell.
Nadie_AZ: I really wanted a trifecta: Obama, Penzone and Carmona. I got one. I am completely not surprised about the others. Just disappointed.
sammyk: sammyk: Anybody find a list of how the 2010 teaparty freshmen did? I'm hoping for a whole lot of one and done./letmegooglethatformyselfLinkNot as big a beating as I was hoping for.
maxheck: This almost makes me want to go over to Freep and watch the meltdown.almost.
qorkfiend: sammyk: Anybody find a list of how the 2010 teaparty freshmen did? I'm hoping for a whole lot of one and done.I know my district's 2010 Tea Party freshman went down, 52-48.
jigger: So it's settled. Everyone likes the Citizens United Decision now.
InmanRoshi: abb3w: Alas, Michele Bachmann managed to persevere.Minnesota is a weird farking state. Urban St. Paul/Minneapolis is dark, dark blue. Rural Minnesota is light blue. Sandwhiched between them is suburbia St. Paul, so deep red they keep re-electing a Congresswoman too DERP for even Iowa GOP Primary voters to stomach.
TofuTheAlmighty: Good; the fewer war criminals in the House, the better.Mentat: The only thing that saved the GOP last night was redistricting.And they've got that locked down for another 4 cycles. It'll take a rout like 2006 to see another Dem majority in the House. Which is completely backwards because the Senate is structurally favored for Republicans.
Great_Milenko: spongeboob: abb3w: Alas, Michele Bachmann managed to persevere.And Steve King.For now. With no national ticket to worry about, the Democratic Party can concentrate on these clowns in 2014. Bachmann's race was really close, so she's vulnerable.
Esc7: Allen West was unhinged. He accused Democratic Congresspeople of being literally card-carrying communists. Like that even happens nowadays. Good riddance. The average IQ of washington just went up a point.
