I wish more than a third of the House and Senate were up for a vote tonight.

You do realize that it’s a third of the Senate up for election. The entire House is voted only every two years.

For those interested in Texas, it is not only RED it is BLOOD RED.

SJL is still entrenched, but only because of her pathetic district.

I have a feeling I am going to be crying with tears of joy tonight.

AMERICAN LIE

A long long time ago...
I can still remember
How the Bullshit used to make me smile.
And I knew if I had my chance
That I could make those people dance
And, maybe, they'd be happy for a while

But then November made me shiver
With every whopper I'd deliver,
Bad news on the doorstep;
I couldn't take one more step.

I can't remember if I cried
When I read about the turning tide,
But something touched me deep inside
The day the gravy died.

So, Bye bye miss american lie,
Took the people to the budget
But the budget was dry.
And them good old boys were drinking whiskey and rye
Singin' "this'll be the day that I die
This'll be the day that I die."

I would have called it a TYRANNICAL reign, rather than historical, but I’m just glad to see that bloodsucking parasite tossed out of the Speaker’s seat.

Would have been nice to lose Barbara Botox, too, but it looks like we’re stuck with her. Carly woulda been a VAST improvement.

And too bad about being stuck with the Bearded Marxist from Delaware. Ugh. What a sickening CREEP. A Chucky-chunks Schemer protege.

And here in New Hamspshire, we got Sen. Ayotte, which is really good, but we’re stuck with the lying, filthy, rotten, stinking, disgusting, loathesome, “governor” Lynch. The one who promised not to sign a “Gay Marriage” law and nearly fell over himself to sign it as quickly as possible.

Of course San Fran Nan knows how much voter fraud is in play and is depending on it to preserve the House for dems. But even DEMOCRATS can’t steal and cheat THAT much—though not for lack of TRYING!!!

“Historic reign” Please! She couldn’t even hold the position more then one term. I’m a woman and as the first woman speaker she was horrible. So am I now sexist?

Yes, the House only has two year terms, the Senate 6 years.

If Pelosi believes that, I would love to see the surprised look on her face when she gets the results.

Then again, how could anyone tell?

Thanks for the correction, I always thought it was 4 and 6.

My politicians in CA have such huge personalities that I never noticed.

The thought of Pelosi having a vein-busting, throw herself down on the floor pounding her fists screaming, hysterical spittle filled tantrum when she is told that she’ll have to give up that gavel she held like Lucifer holding a pitchfork causes me to chuckle every time I conjure it up.

I don’t see it happening.
I think Nancy is on MDMA 24/7.
She’s always smiling, whether the situation warrants it or not.
I think they dispense it in vending machines in SF.

Indeed it is. I have fervently hoping for this. I don't live in his district. I live in an adjacent district (Cantor is my Congressman) and I have a visceral dislike of Perriello. He's been nothing but a rubber stamp for the Democrats and apparently has no understanding of the Constitution's limitations on government.

I am embarrassed. Everyone please educate yourself before the next election.

Fox news says GOP will win House control. Pretty bold to say this so early when many votes are still out but the trends are clear. They have gained several so far.

Don’t drink or do drugs. I am not a libertarian.

I think our elections have so many Democrats winning no matter how I vote that I just never noticed.
