        while losing seats considered a "great night"? What changed since the last election that we're expecting to lose seats we currently hold?

        (Honest question, I haven't been following)

        "Government doesn't create jobs... we all know that! But when I was governor my state created more of them than his."

          (in the house even our minority leader was ousted)

          Everyone predicted we'd lose the senate, which would have given the GOP a trifecta, in fact if they even managed to tie us in the senate their teabagger LG would get to play tiebreaker. We had a bare 22-18 majority and despite the fact we were screwed beyond belief we somehow lost only one seat.

          It's a miracle, Mana from heaven.
