Mid-Term Message To Dems Returned “Mailer-Daemon”

Democratic Party leaders didn’t get the message of Virginia, New Jersey and Massachusetts.

There is no sign they received the message of November 2, either.

Nancy Pelosi, fresh off her victory celebration, is in no mood to compromise on keeping tax rates from going up:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) signaled Friday she is not softening...

That’s the question being pondered from some fairly thoughtful discussion at American Thinker back in 2008 to some flame throwing from Eric Alterman just recently.

I expressed skepticism when a poll was released several months ago showing Jews moving away from Democrats, and while I have yet to see reliable data from the election...

Look, no one recognizes the need to keep spirits high as much as I do.  But at least keep it real, or if not real, at least of this world, or if not of this world, at least of this universe.

This is the latest in a series on the use of the race card for political gain:

The Democratic Party is devoid of ideas, or at least ideas on which it is willing to run.

Those ideas the Democratic Party did have were annihilated in the mid-term elections.  The era of Democrats...

The award for the “Least Likely to be True Headline” goes to William Saletan at Slate.com, Pelosi’s Triumph:  Democrats didn’t lose the battle of 2010. They won it.

But least likely does not mean wrong.

How could Democrats have won the battle of 2010.  Didn’t we just crush them in the mid-term electi...

As I’ve discussed with readers many times in the past, I frequently think about the direction in which to take this blog.  For the most part reader feedback has been “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” and I’ve taken that feedback to heart.

I understand that you think I don’t understand what the people said yesterday, but please understand that the people didn’t understand what I have been saying for two years, which is understandable because it’s hard to understand things when you’re scared and confused, capiche?

Homepage report at Firedoglake on last night’s elections.  Dems wiped out in the House, serious setbacks in the Senate, Statehouses gone … but damn it, they defeated California Prop. 19, a “they took the bar” moment if ever there were one:

The homophobic pot bigots won, again.

Well, at least it must have felt that way is you were a Democrat who just two years ago was being told that you were a permanent majority.

The Democrats face a political decapitation tomorrow. 

Dozens of senior Democratic Party leaders in the House and Senate, and in Statehouses around the country, are likely to lose.  Unlike Republicans in 2008, there is no next generation of Democratic leaders. 

Who are the Democratic Party equivalents of Marco Rubio, Mitch Daniels, John Thune, Bobby...
