    With President Obama and his team still in charge of the executive branch and the Senate (+2, take that, rape-is-God's-will guys!!), I heaved a huge sigh of relief.

    It will be interesting to see what happens with the expiration of the Bush tax cuts.

    I need more coffee!! Elections kept me up past my bedtime.

      Rich people, pick up your torches and pitchforks, careful... and head on over there to the R side of The House.

      Those expired tax cuts we couldn't get anything done about here..right? right?

        If the Republicans refuse to vote to raise revenue to fund needed government services, we can just sit back and watch tax rates go up on everyone. And make sure that the middle-income taxpayer knows who refused to vote in a tax break for them.

          class tax cut expiration as well...administratively maybe.

          It will be fun watching Boehner's face turn color...

          and point at...but it's an expensive laugh.

          looks like she's ahead in the last few precincts. don't know if auto recount, but we outperformed many expectations here as well.
            She will be lonelier..and her only chance to win next time is to start now doing what Linda McMahon tried to do, move left and be a fake Independent.

          Watch for that play in the next 24 months.

            over the last month phonebanking and canvassing to defeat her and Chip Cravaack (in MN-08). They got rid of Cravaack but Bachmann is, unfortunately, a good retail politician. People like her because she helps her constituents ... and they overlook the crazy.
