    I know Mitt lost but his margin was nowhere near, say, George McGovern's loss. The admittedly gerrymandered all to hell House is still firmly in Republican hands. If you take blue dogs out of the federal and certain (NY cough) state mixes real Democrats have a tough time of it.

    So if Obama and the Senate don't fold on the budget scam they're doing what they're supposed to do: lead. But there's a lot of work to do before we might make some progress in 2014.

    This is the legacy of the culture war (to me). We're winning the culture war but have lost the economic war (because of the culture war?). Electorally it's time for rearmament. Economically the right wing will never compromise. They must be crushed.

    If you didn't like the news today, go out and make some of your own.
