    The GOP wins because they spend money and time shaping public opinion.

    The least we here can do is write LTEs the way Conservatives do and scream at them for their bias and inaccuracies.

    NY-09 residents should also get busy making demands on their new Representative--tell him what you want him to do and why.

    Rope in friends and family to help.

    If you see a broadcast media person behaving badly, send a complaint message to the network or station, and copy that message to Media Matters, at mm-tips@mediamatters.org, or to Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting (FAIR), at fair@fair.org.

    P.S. Sidnora, you're the GREATEST! You highlighted in this diary exactly what I've been hearing "the man (or woman) on the street" saying.

    I also blame us ordinary Democrats for not doing more "boots on the ground" and GOTV.

    [I donated money and made phone calls from home, but really could have/should have done more for this and Working Families Party candidate]

    Good news about NY State Assembly--all but one seat went to Democrats.

      Are you in the district?

      BTW, even money couldn't help this time - we spent a lot more than they did, at least up until the very last couple of days (I'm not sure about last-minute spending).

      The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.
