    So much for all the "schadenfreude" diaries that so proliferated a while back in these parts.

      With petty politicians, of which Obama is one, you take your schadenfreude in the little things.  Akin was a shoo-in for MO Senator until he opened his mouth.  The same with Mourdock.  Maybe George Allan would have won.  

      Ultimately, it might not matter all that much who runs the Senate.  But there's still that magic moment when the GOP realized their own bat shit crazies did them in.  

      I'll take my schadenfreude when I can get it.  Works for me.

        I'll take it where I can as well But I was referring to Democrats understanding the implications of the 2012 election results. Apparently the President doesn't.
