Blue Wave, Baby! Hell, Tsunami!
Seems we lost Every major race that would determine a "blue wave" or not. Every last stinkin' one! Canova?? Please. He got a whopping 5%. A beatdown of epic proportions! Beto?? A dud. Georgia Gov.?? fuhgetaboutit. Rick Scott, Scott Walker?? One's going to the Senate, the other waiting a recount, but likely retains his Gov. seat. Did the Dims win anywhere??
Well, glad you asked. Yes. They. Did.
And overall, better than the 2010 Tea Bagger Rebellion!
So, just on that alone, classify it a tsunami! Just on that alone!
Becuz in 2010 the baggers won by 7.2% overall. Or, something like 53.6 R - 46.4 D.
Last night Dims won by 9.2% overall. 2 points higher, or something like 54.6 D - 45.4 R.
Any way you slice it that's a Big Win! yuuuge!
So why aren't we feeling it??
Becuz in 2010 the baggers picked up 63 seats! Something like that.
In that neighborhood. A yuuuge ass whoopin' they put on us! This year??
This year Dims picked up 32-ish. About half of 2010.
Why the big difference in pickups despite the yuuuge tsunami win??
One word. Gerrymandering.
Gerrymandering prevented the big pickup despite the yuuuge tsunami victory.
Making it look like an ooops, instead. Pardon us for taking back The House!
Wasn't our intention... And pretty much treated that way in the M$M.
"It looks like they may have taken back The House, but we can't figure out how they did it. It could be that they were just lucky, the cards just fell right... "
Or it could be that Dim voters kicked some serious ass - some Tea Bagger tsunami ass - but the Repubs were lucky that they had those Districts gerrymandered - or it would have been a Bloodbath of 2010 Tea Bagger proportions!! Which it was despite the gerrymandering!
A blue wave tsunami we won't hear about.
