    Scott Walker is gone. End of an era. Wow. Sisolak almost certain to win, too, when Vegas comes in. Two more governorships flipped.

    Good lord, he's insecure. Next two years should be entertaining, at least.

    When Democrats flip the House and prove the enduring genius of the Constitution (may or may not be my wife and kid in a random dance from two nights ago):

    And Illinois/New Mexico, and probably Maine.

    Or Colorado! We just passed amendments to establish independent commissions for both Congress and state legislative districts.

    I DON'T KNOW. HALP. And no, not lame duck. Votes not there from Alaska, Maine, and Alabama (Jones flipped seat after summer health care debacle).

    So, freakout time: Is there anything stopping the Senate GOP, newly strengthened, from passing the House ACA repeal that already passed that chamber?

    Nailed it. The Constitution, somehow, shockingly, continues to work in the long-term favor of the Republic.

    Dude, I'm not going to break it out for you. Wages are rising for educated, white collar workers. This isn't worth arguing. The economy is very, very good. Period.

    They went up 3% last quarter. Your concerns are legit, but not why rich suburbs are abandoning the GOP.

    Okay, serious post time: This is a massive rebuke to Trump and Trumpism - nothing else. We have historically low unemployment, a flying (albeit recently stalled) stock market, rising wages, very strong GDP growth, and Republicans can make a plausible case that the tax cuts and deregulation have provided to a steady but anemic recovery a sugar high, at least. And they lost. Big, it appears. If one looks at previous wipeouts, 2014, 2010, 2006, 1994, we could point to a bevy of economic, war, or policy conditions/positions that voters rejected. Not so here. This is entirely about the GOP failure to provide any constitutional check on this naked emperor. Point is, any spin tomorrow is complete horseshit. This race is about the simple fact that the president is reprobate who either rejects or never understood the character of this country. I want to point out, too, that rejecting a president for his refusal to abide by American democratic norms is an incredibly sophisticated voting analysis. We have ample reason to be very proud of our people tonight. I mean that earnestly. Anyway. Fuck him, fuck Republicans.
