    More obfuscation, Merv? You're an apologist for fictional mass murderers now?

    I have to take my hat off to you for that

    Wrong Kang, sorry, though I never thought of the other one as a mass murderer. I didn't recognize the spelling difference; chalk another one up to cultural differences.

    Governor Kodos.

    Merv, why are you so determined to protect this fictional character? I am getting deeply suspicious of your bona fides. You're a fascist!

    No Real change this Election
    For all its unpopularity, Congress emerged from election night largely the same, with Democrats holding a majority of the Senate and Republicans controlling the House.

    The Senate
    Some fresh faces will appear, however, next session: in Massachusetts, Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren defeated incumbent Sen. Scott Brown, confirming Warren's status as a rising star in the Democratic Party.
    In Missouri, Democrat Claire McCaskill won a second term in her Senate seat over Republican challenger, congressman Todd Akin. The GOP candidate's remarks on abortion made news this year and appalled many Americans both inside and outside the state. Akin had to give up his House seat to run, so he won't be returning to Washington.
    Tim Kaine, who ran against former Sen. George Allen, won the Democrats a Senate seat in Virginia. Another toss-up race, this one in Indiana, went to Democrat Joe Donnelly as Republican Richard Mourdock fell behind, potentially due to recent controversial remarks he made about rape.
    One Democratic victory cost a Republican challenger dearly: Chris Murphy won Connecticut's Senate race, defeating Republican Linda McMahon, former president of wrestling juggernaut WWE. Over two unsuccessful campaigns, McMahon spent $100 million of her own personal fortune to pursue a Senate seat.
    Other Democrats also won re-election to the Senate: Bill Nelson in Florida, Sheldon Whitehouse in Rhode Island, Ben Cardin in Maryland and Tom Carper in Delaware.
    Also, some history was made when Rep. Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis.) beat Republican Tommy Thompson in Wisconsin, becoming the country's first openly *** senator.
    Meanwhile, in Tennessee, Republican Sen. Bob Corker held onto his seat. In some other toss-up states such as Montana, where Democratic Sen. Jon Tester faces off against U.S. Rep. Denny Rehberg, the race is still tight.
    Elsewhere, it's been a good night for Independents. In Vermont, independent junior Senator Bernie Sanders has won re-election, while in Maine, former Governor Angus King has won the Senate seat of retiring GOP moderate Olympia Snowe.
    The House
    Joe Kennedy III was the likely winner of Massachusetts' 4th congressional district, taking over for prominent Democrat Barney Frank.
    Michele Bachmann is still fighting an unexpectedly tough race in Minnesota against Democratic challenger Jim Graves.
    In Utah's 4th district, Mia Love may become the first black, female Republican to serve in the House, if she wins the race against one of the last Blue Dog Democrats, Jim Matheson. Early reports show Matheson with a 51 percent to 47 percent lead, according to the Salt Lake City Tribune.
    In Florida's 22nd district, Tea Party favorite Allen West lost reelection to Democratic challenger Patrick Murphy, during the concession speech of GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney.
    Another Tea Party candidate, junior Rep. Republican Bobby Schilling, lost in Illinois' 17th district to Democrat and former journalist Cheri Bustos.
    California's 10th district sees a tight race between "Astro Jose" Jose Hernandez, former astronaut, and Jeff Denham, a Republican freshman. Denham held a slight lead with 44 percent of precincts reporting.

    I'm already hearing variants of this Internet meme today:
    Spoiler


    I'm not mad. I was wrong about my guess, that's for sure. I think I have more of a deep sense of sorrow for the future of America than anything else. The looters, aka the 47%, have won and there will never be another time that the GOP presents a challenge to the Democrats - so the one-party system will have to collapse before it can be replaced. I'm guessing 20 years or more. Long time to be standing in bread lines.

    Case in point. Warren is an overt Marxist, while THE WON pretends he isn't.

    This one should be in the 'pointless & stupid' thread. King is about as independent as Bernie Sanders. He's Maine's version of Jerry Brown.

    Essentially, the TEA party was overcome by the Hispanic vote. Thing is, I know that most everyone <not> in the TEA party don't recognize what's coming at them. I suspect it's going to make Japan's "lost decade" look like a holiday.

    Sure the Republicans can win, they just have to stop pandering to their lunatic fringe. Given that the US economy is still not great, this election should have been won by the Republicans, but they dug themselves into a hole by spending way too much effort trying to please the crazies.

    Voting is the best revenge! (Election results 2012)

    I don't vote.
    Two part systems don't work.
    This government used to work for the people, by the people.

    People don't think like that anymore. Hence, I don't vote. Ever.
