    ...and I can tell you it's all about the individual candidates.  To be honest, if I didn't hate Republicans (and I do--I don't have any reservations about saying it) I would have voted for them over the Democrats, whom I don't consider entirely serious people.

    But nobody's buying flowers from the flower lady.

      Some incumbents did lose, and in some places I don't think to superior challengers to 2007.

      I think in Montco the candidates mattered but the D next to the name may have actually helped in certain areas (though hurt in others I'm sure).

    •  No bashing Dems at DKE (0+ / 0-)

        To constitute some kind of unfair "bashing." I criticize Democrats all the time here. What my mantra has always been—and it's always been the guiding credo of SSP/DKE as well—is that I try to leave my personal feelings out of it.
