No October surprise, no November surprise, no Iran war, no North Korean war, no new terrorist attack on America, and we still managed to take the House and (likely) the Senate without the votes being stolen. I have to say that it’s not what I predicted – I expected something much less benevolent. Karl Rove wasn’t able to steal this one from us and the empty, baseless attacks on Democratics proved to be just that. The last-minute voter intimidation and robo-calls proved to all of us that Republicans are not in the moral majority. They proved that they were just like Mike Tyson biting Evander Holyfield’s ear as they sunk towards defeat. Empty shots rang out scaring Americans into thinking that the Democrats are going to tax the middle class into the poor house and the terrorists will rejoice in celebration without Republicans there to smoke them out of their spiderholes. Nobody bought the crap and the system didn’t fail us. It worked. There is still hope. For the first time in 6 years, we can hold our government accountable to the system of checks and balances. We can start to work with the fool-in-chief, as his lies and crimes become slowly exposed. Perhaps impeachment can become a possibility? Perhaps we might even be able to find out what is being covered up about 9/11? For now, I’ll savor today. It’s a good day.
