Checking out some of the twittering about the election results:
Jacob Weisberg: “Saying the obvious here, but Sarah Palin could hardly have had a worse night.”
Ezra Klein: “Note: The Bush tax cuts for the rich can only pass if they make it through a Democratic Senate and president.”
Markos: “I’m jazzed about ’12. As we’ve just learned, 2 yrs is eternity in politics and everthing can and will change. And now, I’m going to bed.”
Dave Weigel: “I don’t think any of these Republican wins are valid until they SHOW US THEIR BIRTH CERTIFICATES.”
From matttbastard, too many great ones to choose, especially the ones about Evan Bayh.
“The extremes of both parties will be disappointed. But the vast center yearning for progress will applaud, & the country will benefit.” GAG
“And we were too deferential to our most zealous supporters.” Buh?If Dem leaders weren’t ignoring progs, they were belittling them.
“To a degree we are authors of our own misfortune, & we must chart a better path forward.” We, Evan? “We” saw U turtle whenever GOP said BOO
Evan “Here, Have My Seat, Republicans” Bayh, the ultimate Quisling Quitter, is giving Dems advice in the NYT. No, srsly. http://is.gd/gF55x
The key to Democratic success, as articulated by Evan Bayh: Republican-Lite policies. Yeah, that worked AWESOME the last time, Ev. Dickhead.
Yep, Democrats should do everything Republicans want — AND MOAR!!1 Christ on a congressional staffer. What was that about bourbon mimosas?
I could do more, but you get the point. The guy is hysterical funny, and brilliant. (No, NOT Evan Bayh!)
