Don't know about y'all, but I don't think we should gloat about our smashing, crushing, pulverizing and demolishing victory over the Democrats tonight, one of 'em (NY-9) a colossal upset!

Better to be magnanimous, stay above the fray, which is why I won't even mention the fact that Republican Bob Turner won in a district that elected Chuck Schumer, Geraldine Ferraro and Anthony Weiner.

Nor will you hear a peep out of me about the fact that Democrats were claiming this wasn't a "safe" seat anyway because a Republican held it as recently as 88 years ago. Sensing defeat, most Democrats fell back on their old habit of blaming the Jews.

This is a district that Obama won with 55 percent of the vote, a district in which Gore got 67 percent. This district is so heavily Democrat, it voted for John Kerry. In another plus for Democrats, the deceased are allowed to vote. But, like I said, nary a word about any of this from me.

Also, my lips are sealed -- tightly sealed -- about the fact that Turner, a political novice, won against a veteran Democrat politician, David Weprin, whose family is legendary in this district. Weprin got the backing of the entire Democrat establishment, and he still lost -- but will I even mention it? No.

Weprin tried to paint Turner as a hostage-taking Tea Partier who wants to destroy Medicare and Social Security and murder granny. It's part of the Democrats' winning strategy of appealing to moderates by portraying opponents as monstrous killers.

Also sensing defeat, the media hysterically tried to write off a loss here for Democrats as just a special case -- a district in which Obama is as popular as gonorrhea. But. A Siena poll released last Friday pegged Obama's approval rate in the district at 43 percent, which is about where Gallup pegs him nationally.

As for NV-2, more good news (which I refuse to mention). Republican Mark Amodei absolutely CRUSHED Kate Marshall. Will I mention that Marshall is state treasurer? And that this is Harry Reid's home state? No.

Democrats had high hopes here because Marshall is state treasurer and a late-August poll put Amodei ahead by only one percentage point, which I won't mention either since I'm not gloating. Nor am I going to point out that Marshall tried to paint Amodei as a hostage-taking Tea Partier who wants to destroy Medicare and Social Security and murder granny. (This positive message seems to resonate so well.)

Like Weprin, Marhshall got the backing of the entire Democrat establishment, with Harry Reid and Bill Clinton pushing for her, but I said I wouldn't gloat so I won't mention that either.

Oh, one more thing. Congratulations Bob Turner and Mark Amodei! Nice job trouncing the Democrats, heh, heh, heh! Oops ... wasn't gloating -- honest!

Anyway, that's...
My Two Cents...

Weiner resigned after it was revealed that he had sent lewd photos of himself to women via his Twitter account.

Anthony Wiener resigned? When did that happen and what are these photos the writer speaks of?

This is great news & almost makes the whole disgusting Weiner episode a blessing in disguise. One would hope that more disgraced politicians could be as easily replaced with those with a bit more integrity. Therefore perhaps it is the end of the world.

Wow! Quite a win and pickup! Thanks for the post John.

The Democrats hate Obama so much that even the dead are voting Republican!

Great News! Enjoy the NY-9 win while it lasts for the next 14 months. I’ve heard this district was going to be gerrymandered out because NY lost some House seats in the census.

You forgot to say that you shouldn’t mention the fact that the Democrats pour hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of hate ads in the last days to try to hold on to the seat. We should try to be civil after all. ;O)

I’m overwhelmed with the modesty, decorum, and self control on display with these comments!

I’m glad you didn’t gloat.

From this moment, the sea level will stop rising, the earth will begin to heal...

We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. Wait... what?
