A huge story brewing here in Washington is that Democrats are headed to near super majorities in the State House and Senate. Voters have clearly rejected the Republican’s agenda of greed, lies and gay bashing, but they still don’t get it -they think they just need better marketing.


Republicans were flabbergasted by the power shift, which seemed likely to give Democrats their strongest hold on the Legislature in more than a decade.”
“I've talked to almost all my caucus members, and I'm pretty sure that they understand that this was out of our control," (Mike) Hewitt (Senate Minority Leader) said.


Um, no, maybe voters are fed up with Republicans turning citizens against each other, gay bashing and trying to de-fund issues that they care about like transportation and education.

Well, I don't blame them. Good marketing is the only thing that got Republicans in power in the first place. Besides, you can never accuse a Republican of being in touch with reality.
