The emperor of the United States of America has received a resounding smackdown from the owners of this country. No, it was not a presidential election, but the rout in the House and significant gains in the Senate will send a message to the Bush-Cheney-Rove axis of evil that they are not the sole owners of this country and the US is still, despite their best efforts, a democracy. Something different, at long last. Still hoping for Montana and Virginia at this early hour.

Now, how do we stop the wholly biased mainstream media from spinning this into a republican win? I am as concerned about bias in the media as I have been about the election results. We must find a way to force the lapdogs in the press to do their jobs, which is to report the news from a neutral stance and to inform the public so that we may hold accountable our employees in Washington.

Hallelujah ~ what a relief.

OMG, Montana just went to the Democrat! We now have at least 50 seats! I'm creaming my pants!

And Virginia's looking good.

This helps. I'm still shaking from our horrible stupid ass "definition of marraige" crap that went into our state's constitution, so much so that its really putting a bummer on the national joy I should be feeling.

v'ron, one positive thing is that these measures are passing by a much smaller margin than they have in the past, which means they are generally losing support. And Arizona is the first state to reject one! These measures are clearly unconstitutional and I have no doubt they will eventually be overturned. It will be a few years, though. So, cheer up!

and there's a change afoot in the evangelical movement. it seems instead of focusing on hatred of others, they're going to be looking around for suffering souls to try to HELP. imagine: a positive, christ-like message rather than the anti-hating-ugliness of the last years.

so there's hope, cupcake, and eric, i am about to wet myself with joy. one. more. and it's a sweep. INCREDIBLE!!!!!

Don't tune in to Fox, don't read Newscorp publications, don't tune in to CNN.

Do write your congress members, tell them not to blow this opportunity.

Even my everlasting Republican home state went Dem. Yeah! Happy days are here again.

I admired the way you exhorted the masses, B-A-B. Those few added votes seemed to have made a difference in many, many districts.

One point of contention. The United States is not a democracy, it is a federal republic with a Constitution.

If you're going to gloat, at least get your facts in order.

That's not even mentioning your Emperor of the United States and 'biased media' nonsense. I'm a Democratic voter, but it's hysterical people like you that make us all look like a bunch of undermedicated crazy people.

Hi Big Ass Belle,

I feel an incredible sense of elation too. You definitely got me out to vote. I'd given up. The atmosphere in this federal- republic-with-a-Constitution has been so sickly and hopeless since the voting fiasco in Florida. I'm sick of adding the tagline apology when I tell people that I'm American.

re: the anonymous comment. I hope you keep it there. The tone is so hateful. Interesting that the person posted as anonymous. Maybe it was Condoleeza Rice.

call it gloating, call it satisfaction in a comeuppance long delayed, there is, of course, some of that when an administration that has been so wholly dismissive of not just the other party, but of the american people as a whole experiences an awakening.

but what i am actually feeling is hope that the direction we've been heading can be corrected before an irreparable disaster.

i have felt as if we're all a bunch of helpless children, strapped into a car speeding down a mountain. george bush is asleep at the wheel with all us poor dumb creatures screaming in the back seat.

on this election day, we got our belts off and the doors open and there's a chance we may escape the disaster on wheels that has been this administration.

i have hope and that brings joy.

Hey, Grand Master Belle-y-Belle...

W00T, W00T! Can I get a what, what?

I'm happy, too. Unfortunately, I'm still skeptical that the dems are going to improve things much, what with the whole move towards being "centrist" (not to mention their track record, of late).

I'm curious, where'd you get that info on the evangelical movement changing? I haven't heard of it. Do you think Haggard being outed finally put them over the edge? ;o)
