Turning a Corner

I hope you're as happy as I am this morning.

As far as I'm concerned, the night could have ended at about 10pm with the Santorum concession speech-- despite his little girl crying throughout the whole thing, I would have been giddy as could be.

Sayonara, jackass.

But to stay up through the night, and watch what happened across the country (and the mood at FOX News throughout, which was borderline-hysterical)... it was like watching T.O. getting laid out, over and over and over again.

Yep, it felt very good, with one notable exception.

Even with that being said... let's give a cheer for the first real opportunity that Democrats will have had to exercise checks and balances in what seems like far too long.

And let's take a look at who may have come out of the night wielding the biggest hammer of all... is this guy, who had been presumed politically dead just months ago, suddenly one of the most important senators in the country?


***

And think-- if it weren't for what some have called a "racist ad" (and apparently Tenneseans thought so)-- things could have been even worse for the GOP.

Whatever "worse" could mean for them on a morning like this.

Only two years left, boys and girls.

Only two years left.

(lots of links tomorrow-- I promise!)
