Rather than some type of tidal wave of demographic changes, I think the election results can be summed up with two thoughts: 1) people are just sick and tired of what's going on with national politicians, and 2) people blamed Republicans as a group for the problems rather than taking a look at which Republicans were problems. I don't recall who said it, but the phrase "Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely" certainly seemed to apply here; the few Republicans who were caught with their hands in the cookie jar, and elsewhere, drug down lots of innocent people with them. I just heard on the way to the office, though, that new House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is promising the most ethical, most honest and least partisan Congress ever. Yeah, well, good luck with that; let's see how she is doing in about six years, when people are sick of what the Democrats are doing because their hands are in the cookie jar, too, and the whole cycle starts all over again.

All Right

So I guess All Politics is NOT local. Clearly, good judges/officials lost, but did nothing to lose their seat. Clearly there are some less than qualified and less than ethical new judges/officials that did nothing to win, but because of the letter "D", they managed to gather more votes. Why the letter "R" is now scarlet is beyond me, but if voters were somehow trying to punish the President for decisions they do not agree with, then why take it out on a County Judge or District Attorney? I am afraid we will feel the consequences of this blind voting a few years down the road.
