OK, here is my summary of last night's election returns as the attorneys begin moving into place for the next few months of challenges. There were some big winners and some big losers, and here is my break down of each.
First of all, WINNERS:
* Joe Lieberman (I-CT), the newly re-elected Senator from CT ran as an Independent after his own party threw him to the wolves...and i hope that memory stays fresh in his mind. He is now the hottest free agent since Shaq in the NBA. Both sides will be offering him power positions for his vote, and personally, i think he needs to come to the other side of the aisle.
* The Mainstream media. Since 1994 they have been fighting to get their comrades on the left back into control of Congress and since 2000 to destroy President Bush. Now they are going to work at building up that legacy that Bill Clinton never had.
* Bobby Jindal (R-LA). Bobby Jindal is setting himself up for another run for the governor's office in LA by gaining over 80% of his district. After Katrina when Kathleen "Call me Babineaux only at Election Time" Blanco and the New Orleans Candy Man Ray Nagin were flipping out, Jindal was knee deep in water getting work done. He should have beat Blanco previously, and will probably pull it out next time.
* Leftist Special Interest Groups. With San Fran Nan Pelosi and her cohorts running the House, expect every freedom hating special interest group to suddenly have a say in Washington.
* Islamofascists. Think about this: "Of course Americans should vote Democrat," said Jihad Jaara, a senior member of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades terror group and the infamous leader of the 2002 siege of Bethlehem's Church of the Nativity. Scary, huh?!?!
* Young Conservatives. I do think that young conservatives who are tired of the status quo now have an opportunity to rise up. We need another Republican Revolution, like we saw in 1994...but with a lot less grey hair and wrinkles. Don't get me wrong, i like Denny Hastert, but it's time for a new leader.
And now, let's consider some of the Losers:
* Hillary. Yep, Hillary is a loser in this one because the dems are going to so screw things up over the next 2 years that i don't think she will have ANY chance (or any other democrat) in 2008.
* Harold Ford, Jr. (D-TN). A pretty good Congressman who was pretty conservative on a lot of issues left his House seat to run for Senate, and lost in a close race. This is probably good for him though, as i will point out later, because as a moderate/conservative democrat he will have no hope in a Pelosi led House.
* Conservative-Moderate Democrats. Newly elected Congressmen like Heath Schuler (NC) who is actually a conservative Christian and re-elected "Blue Dog Democrats" like Mike Ross (AR) and Charlie Melancon (LA) are basically "useful idiots" in the Pelosi led House. Their elections may have helped the dems gain control, but they have no hope of holding any position of influence unless they are willing to sacrifice their beliefs, morals and convictions at the San Fran Nan's alter.
* The State of MD. They had the opportunity to elect a great African American leader in Michael Steele, but gave in to the hate mongering and lies.
* The State of AR. Across the board dems elected to the highest offices in the state, along with 2 dem Senators and only one Republican in the House. There is little to no hope for those of us in this state who have morals and convictions.
* The US Economy. Already the stock markets are seeing a drop after this mess of an election built upon lies and deception. And once the dems start working to raise our taxes and increase spending...it won't be pretty.
* The United States of America. We are looking at a miserable 2 years because of the quagmire that Pelosi and her cohorts are going to create between now and 2008.
Well, the damage is done folks...let's knock the dust off, put some ice on our back sides from the kicking we just took and GET BACK INTO THE FIGHT! Like Eric Cantor (R-VA), one of the few re-elected Republicans in the House said, "This is a message from the voters that we really need to step up and reclaim the mantle of reform that propelled us to power 12 years ago."
Carpe Diem...Seize the Day!
