CNN projects Democrats to take US House

For those poll watching this evening, CNN projects that the Democrats will gain control of the US House of Representatives for the first time since 1994. Even my home state of NH (once described by the Boston Globe as “Mississippi…with snow”) has switched one of its two reps from (R) to (D).

In exit polling nationwide Tuesday, 57 percent of voters said they disapproved of the war in Iraq, while 41 percent approved. Those figures mirror Bush’s job approval among voters, with 58 percent saying they disapprove of the president’s performance and 41 percent approving.

As for the senate, out goes Republican nitwit Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania as well as Mike Dewine of Ohio and incoming is Independent (Socialist) Bernard Sanders of VT (replacing Jim Jeffords).

Savor the moment, Now, if only Webb finishes off Allen in Virginia…

Predictably, Charles Johnson and Michelle are trying to rain on the Dems’ parade, salivating over Lieberman’s victory in CT. This was a given. It does not mean the Netroots are “the kiss of death,” as Charlers gloats. Most of Kos’ choices are winners today; that is simply undeniable, much as Charles won’t ever admit it. Most of Charles’ choices lost (he laments one of these losses with his typical barely concealed racial hatred). But he doesn’t call himself the kiss of death, only Kos, and only because of Lieberman. We all wrote off the Lieberman race many weeks ago and focused on more realistic opportunities. But the nutters have to see a pony somewhere, so let them dream on.

This is a great day for America. It’s not the end of the Bush nightmare. But it’s the beginning of something we abandoned some years ago – real checks and real balances. It isn’t coming a moment too soon.

Good news indeed, though tempered somewhat by the notion that the Democrats were the best-case scenario.

Still, my Pennsylvania homies got rid of that fuck Santorum, and that ain’t nothing.

Brendan, some of them also ditched that motherf—-ing KGB whore, Curt Weldon. He’s been in the pocket of the Russian mafia and their spooks for years, and I’ve been waiting for him to swirl down the porcelain god’s mouth for a LONG time
