    majority?

    •  because we just barely won 1 of 5 elections (0+ / 0-)

      this was set up as the marquee political matchup of the year outside of the november elections, and has been a flashpoint proxy battle over left/right ideology for almost two years. the result of that battle is that we lost every single contest by gigantic margins save for one, which was won by a couple percentage points, the result of which is that it might prevent a summer legislative session that may or may not have happened (to say nothing of the fact that the seat will definitely be lost when its next up, due to redistricting). this is barely a silver lining -- maybe its nickel or cast iron at best.

      rejoice over the crushing loss of five out of six elections, including the most important one, if you want.

      what a great day for democrats, right? you guys all woke up thrilled this morning i presume?

      •  Pop quiz (0+ / 0-)

        Name a Republican pickup in the 2011 and/or 2012 Wisconsin Recall Elections.

        Bonus question: How many seats did the Democrats lose?
