Let's all be upstanding and raise our glasses to the ousting of Rick Santorum in PA and to Casey's defeating Blackwell in the OH governor's race. :occasion5:

Oh, and hopefully Katherine Harris bites the dust, too.

One drink per customer, please...this may be a long night. :lol:

LOOKS LIKE THE DEMS HAVE TAKEN THE HOUSE WITH 24 SEATS...AT LEAST THAT'S WHAT THE MSM IS PREDICTING...

SALUTE! :salute: :hello1:

Quote:
Democrats regained control of the House of Representatives for the first time in 12 years Tuesday night and made strong gains in the Senate, according to NBC News projections. Democrats cast the results as a sharp rebuke to President Bush and promised big changes in Washington.

“Last week, the vice president said [that] regardless of the outcome, the administration would go full speed ahead in the same direction,” Democratic Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, who was well on her way to a landslide re-election in New York, told cheering supporters. “Well, I think the American people have said, ‘Not so fast!’”

drinks all around!!!!!!!!!!!! :occasion5:

mine being non alchoholic of course.

what a sweet night, what a great morining for america.

our u.s. constitution is a little safer for the time being.

the minimum wage might actually go up.

gas prices, i'm betting, will go back up so fast, it will make your head spin.
if so the dems in the house and maybe the senate need to slam home some investigations. i'm still in the camp that prices fell in order to influence the election.

BRING OUR SOLDIERS HOME NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

the iraqi civil war is none of our business. the american voter has figured this out and sent a screamingly obvious message to the oval office that he needs to be on the same page as the people who pay his salary.

great day guys, a truely great day.

GOOD MORNING, ALL!

THE CONSTITUTION won a great battle last night. Keep the bar open today, please, as I've got to work and won't be around until this evening.

Personally, I couldn't be happier that Heath Shuler won over Charles Taylor in the NC House race. That victory over a corrupt Repub was as good as the Dems ousting Santorum in PA and Harris in FL. Blackwell lost in Ohio, and that's another good thing.

Best of all, Bush lost...and now we'll see if the Democrats will listen to the people because the people seemed to vote against corruption yesterday. It cannot be business as usual anymore, and I really hope the Dems have gotten that message.

I also believe that the internet bloggers and the discussion boards like this one, from the large sites down to the smallest one, played a role in this victory for the Constitution. Our work was not in vain, but it's not over, and now it's time to see what more can be done to bring America back from dictatorial rule. Bush-Cheney are still in power, and the troops are still fighting in Iraq. Rove is still working behind the scenes and Faux News will still be spreading propoganda.

now that that's over with, i'm sure in the very near future we'll start hearing about all the investigations going on behind the scenes. ie: foley and abramoff.

obviously, they postponed many of them because of elections. so, now i hope the justice department puts aside it's politics and gets back to business and start doing their jobs once again.

The justice department might not do any better, but the House is bound to do some investigating! The justice department may be running interference to try to throw them off the trail, or at least keep documents from them...

I see Taylor was on the LCV dirty dozen list.

http://www.lcv.org/campaigns/endorsements/

Good that he is gone, and good that POMBO is gone too!

Meanwhile, in my neck of the woods...

Erie County

Davis 43,116 56%

Reynolds (Incumbent) 34,054 44%

Genesee

Reynolds (Incumbent) 8,948 58%

Davis 6,415 42%

Livingston

Reynolds (Incumbent) 11,031 60%

Davis 7,235 40%

Monroe

Reynolds (Incumbent) 25,267 57%

Davis 19,052 43%

Niagara

Davis 17,864 54%

Reynolds (Incumbent) 15,464 46%

Orleans

Reynolds (Incumbent) 4,640 59%

Davis 3,232 41%

Wyoming

Reynolds (Incumbent) 7,718 63%

Davis 4,542 37%

I guess it could be worse. I could live in Wyoming County. The counties where Reynolds clobbered Davis are all rural. Not much of a surprise, eh?

Time to pass the drinks around again, guys...the Democrats have taken the Senate! If you watched Bush bumble through a news conference today, and the way he was slapping those pages of his Rumsfeld Is Quitting script, you can imagine the shrub isn't happy!

:twisted: :twisted:

I love it...I love it...I love it....

I'm sure some of you remember a certain TVNL member sailing back into our midst (at my invitation) awhile back and arrogantly accusing us of sitting around on our arses, not being "activist" enough. She also stated that the internet wasn't as informative a tool with which to fight the Bushies as were newspapers:

Quote:
There is precisely NO chance in hell that the Democrats will get into any position of power....

...The time for action is very definitely here and 69% of the American people DO NOT get their news from the internet.


LINK

The first sentence this person wrote in the quote has already been proven wrong. The second sentence is my main point, though, because I'm curious about how you all see things now. Did the Internet play a role in the outcome of Tuesday's elections?

If you think so, how big of a role did it play, and why do you believe this?

i think it did and does. people are always on computers looking for information and reading what they find.

even tho people might watch a tv news report on a certain issue, they can go on-line and read several viewpoints of the same issue.

as the banner says: "tv news only tells half the story"...get the rest of it on line. :)

I believe that political news websites, alternative news websites, and political discussion boards/blogsites really got the info to thinking people in a way that the msm and the rightwingers couldn't combat.

Sure, there were the usual newspaper articles and editorials, but the net provided millions of people with an opportunity to compare and contrast the stories with those that were being reported at the various internet sites.
