Yesterday’s Election Results: A Semi-Feel-Good Story

| November 7, 2018

Not a great day for the Republic yesterday, but not a bad one either.

In Georgia as well as in Florida, the Communist Socialist “Progressive” candidates running for Governor both appear to have lost.

In Texas, the drunk-driving, ex-punk rocker Communist Socialist “Progressive” candidate for Senate – lost in spite of apparent out-of-state, Hollywood celebrity-led attempts to buy the Senate seat for him through massive fundraising.

While the House was lost to the Prevaricating Promisers from the Pandering Progressive Party (the incumbent President’s party virtually always loses a number of House seats in mid-term elections, often losing control of the House), the Senate remained in adult hands with an even larger adult majority. So any Federal offices requiring Senate confirmation will still be considered by a majority consisting of adults vice dung-flinging SJW howler monkeys.

And if any rank idiocy from the Pandering Progressives manages to get by the Senate . . . well, the current POTUS has a pen and knows how to use it, too. Good luck in overriding a veto.

All but one of the Senators standing for re-election in competitive states who participated that organized campaign to destroy a good man’s reputation using highly suspect – and in some cases, outright fabricated – bogus testimony . . . lost. (Why West Virginia voters didn’t kick their jerk to the curb is beyond me.)

And, finally: guess which one of these guys (well, the term technically also applies to the one on the left) had the last laugh?

You can call him Congressman Hit Man” now, Davidson. (Well, you could if you were truly a man vice a smarmy, butthurt little twerp who gets a kick out of mocking better men than yourself because of their combat-related disabilities.) (smile)


Added Postscript: Oh, and it looks like Taylor Swift will be eating a bit of crow today, too. Hope you like it, lady. A dry rub with garlic and chili powder might help.

And perhaps you should just stick to singing in the future. (smile)

    Good morning, Hondo. Illinois is unfortunately still owned by Mike Madigan’s bunch, but I’m waiting to see how Pritzker’s proposed state real estate tax on homeowners plays out in the court. A similar tax was found to be illegal in Texas in 2005. This should be interesting. I doubt that Illinois will change until Madigan is found all dried out and withered in his office chair, eyes staring straight ahead at nothing.

    I’m sure that the Bimbo From the Bronx thinks she’s going to run things now, too. That should be interesting. How long does “glory” last, anyway?

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      Here are the Texas results on O’Rourke vs Cruz in Texas:

      50.9% Ted Cruz* GOP 4,228,832

      48.3% Beto O’Rourke Dem 4,015,082

      0.8% Other 65,034

      99.1% of precincts reporting

      I figure the novelty will wear off before long.

      • Slow Joe says:

        So near half the voters voted for Beto Kennedy?

        That’s way too close for comfort. Is texas going purple?

        • The Other Whitey says:

          Robert Francis O’Rourke is even whiter than Elizabeth Warren. The whole “Beto” thing is manufactured nonsense designed by marketing specialists to pander to hispanics, many of whom not only saw through it but also found it downright offensive. It only really seems to have worked really well with white-guilt leftists.

        • David says:

          Beto took Houston, DFW, Austin, El Paso, and the Lower Valley. All easily anticipated. Cruz basically swept the rest of the state. And managed to deliver his speech without dropping the F-bomb, something O’Rourke is apparently incapable of doing.

        • GDContractor says:

          It’s an urban vs rural thing. 99% of the land area voted Cruz.

      • RGR 4-78 says:

        Beto got beat and is now on Cruz control.

    • NEC338x says:

      Illinois is owned by the Chicago machine and its metastasization into the collar counties. Throw in an East St. Louis (which is, well East St. Louis) and the socialist university enclaves in Peoria and Champaign. It will be interesting to see what happens when JB reduces exemptions on agricultural zoned lands and pushes semi- auto confiscation on the city-state’s farmers.

      • Ex-PH2 says:

        Like I said, a tax in Texas like the Pritzker-proposed tax was found to be illegal in 2005 by the Texas Supreme Court.

        He is kind of smug, but if he really wanted to “fix” the state’s enormous budget deficit, he could do that by forking over the money out of his own pocket.

        This ought to be good.

  2. 5jc says:

    Not happy about the actual proclaimed Socialist who married her brother getting elected. Do we really need that in the congress? Just when you think they can’t get any lower…

    I wished Veritas had worked over Manchin like they did McCaskill. It worked on McCaskill and she is gone, same strategy probably would have worked on Manchin. I guess they only have so many resources.

    Not a bad night. Not a shocker by any means. Picking up some Senate Seats is good. The first midterm normally punishes the party of the POTUS unless something odd is going on.

    • Mason says:

      I’m disgusted that the lying, brother-marrying socialist won. The seat was held by anti-Semite scum Keith Ellison. Don’t worry about him though, he got a new job as the MN state AG. Promising to fight corruption. 🙄

  3. 5th/77th FA says:

    Proud for Congressman Crenshaw and good on Texas for sending Beto packing. Locally we dodged a lefty libbie yuppie, but the guvunator is still dicey. Looks like Abrams is not going to concede yet, and we’re looking at more recounts, a runoff, trumped up charges of tampering by Kemp, or all of the above. We got our fingers crossed. The US Congress will now waste another 2 years of doing nothing but drawing a paycheck, Demoncans hoping to take over completely in 2020, and Republicrats wanting the same. My sympathies to Ex-PH2, my friends, and other good folk in Illinois. My folks up there consider themselves “caught behind enemy lines.” The whole Chicago Machine just dominates the whole state. God help us all, every…one!

    • jim h says:

      yeah, here in cobb, im looking around at the results and watching the news, and I’m still struggling to make sense of it.

      watch and see: there will be charges of both racism and vote tampering. the fact that she can’t admit that she gave it a good shot and lost is bad. the fact that she’s pulling out the hanging chad bit is infuriating. we’ll really know the jig is up if there’s a warehouse of absentee ballots that just happen to throw her over the threshold all of a sudden.

      the concept of abrams as governor is more than a little alarming.

      • Jay says:

        The “jig” is up??? TRIGGERED!

        • 5th/77th FA says:

          Al of what jim h said is happening on the local news as we speak. If you google fu the by county map, you’ll see the gimme, gimme, gimme, cities areas went dem. The outside of metro areas went red. 159 counties in GA. Only took about 14 to give the blue bump a possible win/recount/do over. Yesterday all the news casts showed bus load after bus load being delivered to the polls.

  4. Hondo says:

    The most important result yesterday was that adults retained control of the Senate. That means that any Pandering Progressive idiocy must go through the Senate in order to even make it to the POTUS for signature. And if by some chance it does, well, good luck getting 2/3 majority to override a veto.

    It also means that the Pandering Progressives can’t block appointments for Federal judges. (Gotta love the irony of that, given that it was the Pandering Progressives that changed the Senate rules to allow simple majority to cut off debate.) So the Pandering Progressives really need to hope Ruth “Picture of Health” Ginsburg keeps breathing for another 2 years – or perhaps 6 or more. (smile)

    • The Other Whitey says:

      Hondo, I read this morning that the 26-seat shift in the House is actually one of the smallest midterm shifts in recent memory. Is that true?

      • David says:

        See my post in the next article. Most first-term midterms flip the House. Biggest flip was in Roosevelt’s second term when he lost 72 seats.

      • MSG Eric says:

        Well, “recent memory” is subjective. For millenial voters recent memory is the kale wrap they had for breakfast with a soy decaf latte.

        • 2/17 Air Cav says:

          Speaking of Ruth “Older Than Dirt” Ginsburg, she did a Wide Load in her office and broke three ribs. She’s now at home. Wish to hell she was “in a home.”

  5. Daisy Cutter says:

    Davidson got dumped by a donut-licker.

    That should tell you all you need to know.

  6. 100E says:

    Trump plays great offense against tough odds. He’ll weather the storm of subpoenas from House Committees, and should he be impeached for serving himself 2 slices of cake, he’ll make them look stupid when it reaches the Senate. I’m fine with last night!

  7. AW1Ed says:

    PDRofMD is unchanged. The only saving grace is the Governor is not Ben Jealous of NAACP fame, and die hard libtard. State Attorney, Senator, and Congress Critter all kept their seats, unfortunately.

    PDRofMD remains deep blue, and little change is expected anytime soon.

    • 26Limabeans says:

      Move to Greenville Maine.
      Buy a float plane and join the annual fun.
      Saw a DC-3 on floats there one year.
      Way under powered.
      A P-3 Orion on floats could be your retirement project. Keep it at BGR and change to skis in the winter.
      Somebody has to do it.

      • AW1Ed says:

        Heh. Not a bad idea…

      • Dinotanker says:

        Besides wondering where I can pick up a used M60A3 in running condition, Im thinking you should go with a…


        But then Im pretty old fashioned for only being 59.

        Instead of separating Washington into two states, Im wondering if we can kick King, Pierce and Snohomish counties out…

        It appears we are keeping the legislatures hands out of our pocketbooks (well at least not letting them get into them deeper…yet), but are taking in the shorts on gun control and requiring more “De-escalation” training for Law Enforcement…Im thinking this will lead to our Police and law abiding citizens being endangered. Im thinking that reading the Riot Act went out in the mid-1800’s…

  8. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    “Why West Virginia voters didn’t kick their jerk to the curb is beyond me.” Several reasons but before I offer them, let me say that it was close. There was a 3rd party cabdidate, a Libertarian, and his votes rec’d exceeded the difference between Manchin and Morrisey, the Republican. Anyway, the RNC pulled funding from Morrisey about two weeks. That hurt but the money was needed elsewhere, I guess. Manchin played both sides of the fence on the Kavanaugh nomination, coming out for him after it was a done deal. The pissed off Dems weren’t pissed off enough to stay home or to vote for Morrisey. Also, Manchin is not a Hate Trumper. He can’t be in WV, so he goes along with Republicans about 60 % of the time. Next, Manchin inundated voters with calls and paper and, unfortunately, that moronic stuff works. And last, Morissey got tagged as a carpetbagger from, of all places, New Joisey. That didn’t help, even though he is WV’s AG!

  9. Fyrfighter says:

    Well, Colorado got stuck with that wussy leftist Polis (who changed his last name after cashing in on the businesses his parent built before they died)… getting ready for my taxes to increase to California like levels, he’s definitely a general in the free shit army…
    Remember people, this is what happens when you allow illegals and californians into your state…

  10. Buckeye Jim says:

    I now live in Massachusetts. This state’s politics is a joke. Only reason to vote is to feel good about protesting. As they say on the corner, “if no viable candidate appears, someone will nominate a Kennedy.”

  11. Carlton G. Long says:

    Despite the Democrats taking the House, I have been unable to find a single video of Republican voters screaming at the sky or running for safe spaces.

  12. E-6 type, 1 ea says:

    The Republicans would have never lost control of the house if the Russians hadn’t interfered with the election.

    There, see how bloody stupid that sounds? Why, it sounds just as stupid now as it did two years ago.

  13. NHSparky says:

    About the only good news is Sununu got reelected as Governor, but the House, Senate, and Executive Council all went blue, and Pappas is now my Congress “man”.

  14. AW1Ed says:

    Tweet from POTUS:

    quid pro quo

  15. Skyjumper says:

    Here in CheeseHead Land, Gov. Walker (R) appears to have lost to Tony Evers (D) by 25K-30K votes. Walker said he is not conceding until all military votes are counted and some goobered up votes (that had been re-created) were checked out.

    Evers had run on a platform for:
    In-state tuition for “un-documented” students; drivers license for “un-documented” individuals; free health care; repealing Act. 10 (which has all of the unions wet themselves in glee)and others.

    He has also been taped saying he would raise income taxes, raise property taxes and increase the gas tax, as high as a dollar/gal.

    Good thing it’s windy & cold here today, otherwise I would be at the range wasting mucho ammo blowing holes in paper targets to get out my frustrations over dumb-azz liberal “give me free stuff” voters.

    The first liberal voter that I hear bitching because their taxes went up will find out that they don’t want to be around me after saying that.

    Hmmm…my mood ring just turned black. (grin)

    • MSG Eric says:

      Just amazing how often people who say “I’m gonna give you free shit!” end up getting elected. The problem is, the only one who really gets free shit out of the deal is the one who got elected.

  16. Thunderstixx says:

    Looks like most people across the country are forgetting the one thing that could come out of this election that could throw out all prognostications available here, there and everywhere.
    Jeff Sessions will no doubt be tossed to the curb and I can see a President Trump putting a good AG in there that actually DOES something and screws up everything that the libidiots have planned.
    Don’t forget, our good President is a street brawler and I doubt that he will go home and start gazing at his navel over this.
    He really fought the good fight, he brought out a ton of voters that wouldn’t have thought of voting for him by nominating Kavanaugh.
    So, I intend on sitting back, waiting for a few weeks and watching to see what happens next.
    If he finds the right AG, some people could find their tits in a wringer really quick…
    In the meantime, check this music out.
    My new most favorite musical group and genre.
    I listen to this while I drive and after 6 hours of TSFH I am ready to park the car, grab the horse by the reins, grab my breastplate armor, my tin helmet, Ethril and chain mail garment, my shield ans sword and head out to slay all the friggin Orcs, libtards and Hun s I can find !!!
    This should fit the day…
    “Never Back Down”, Two Steps From Hell with movie clips from “Fury”, “Black Hawk Down” and some real life scenes including the real cost of war…
    May we all continue to fight the good fight…

  17. I see that young Socialist lady from the bronx NY who’s name I think is ms. cortez got voted in by her peeps. She talks a lot of shit about getting everything free from education to healthcare. Makes sense because her supporters don’t work and want the people that do work for a living to support them. WTF.

  18. Ex-PH2 says:

    I’d like see a President elected who owns guns and gets regular range time. What a freak out that would be.

    What? I can dream, can’t I?

    I want to see how Dan Crenshaw does in the political swamp that is Washington, DC.

  19. 26Limabeans says:

    Yep, as predicted we still don’t know who the Senator from Maine will be. Ranked choice voting has kicked in and there will be a second tally needed. Pay attention because it will be coming to your state soon.
    One person one vote is gone in Maine.

  20. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    “If this reform [ranked choice voting] were implemented throughout the country, it should result in a House of Representatives that actually looks and thinks like America.” Looks like America? Thinks like America? Beats me. I have no idea what that means.

    • 26Limabeans says:

      America is going to have to wait until next week for the next round. Under normal voting the Republican would have won yesterday (most votes). The Democrat will now win next week when the second choice votes are tallied. If that doesn’t produce a winner America can wait another week.
      Imagine that on a national scale.

      Look at it this way. Candidate 1 gets 49%.
      The other 51 Candidates get 1% each.
      Who won?
      Nobody. Gotta go back and count second choices.

      • A Proud Infidel®™️ says:

        I wonder if the losing D-rats will try to pull an Al Frankenstein, filing lawsuit after lawsuit until their opposition concedes?

        • 26Limabeans says:

          Ranked choice guarantees lawsuits from the losing party.

          I did not rank them. I voted for one candidate. He won the most votes. Why not stop there? Because “do over”.
          I did not vote twice so now I have to accept the results of the second round of voting (the do over).
          The end result of this will be lower and lower turnout with higher and higher numbers of candidates.
          A liberals dream.

  21. 26Limabeans says:

    Still going on. Overshadowed by Florida and Arizona but pay attention to this farce.
    It is similiar to the Moose permit lottery and nobody trusts that since it went Al Gorerythem.
