+62 looking prescient

Go Rick Berg. He's worked hard for the Republican party in North Dakota and for the conservative cause. It's about time one of the nation's reddest states finally sent Republicans to Washington. I have the feeling Hoeven and Berg can plan on staying awhile.

------------

To listen to the left, the Republicans are somehow immediately besieged by a mandate to govern from the center. Of course, Republicans would do well to focus on driving Obama to the center (rather than governing from the untenable far right), but if anyone has the centrist mandate, it's Obama. He will triangulate, or he will be Jimmy Carter. Only after he has come to the table can he paint Republicans as extreme.

------------

Ugh, as a dog returns to its vomit, so California returns to Jerry Brown. Is there any case for bailing out California at this point? If they are going to make no effort to get their financial ship in order, there is no reason why we should assist them.

------------

Mike Huckabee makes a joke about wishing he had invested in U-Haul... Because there are going to be a lot of people moving in D.C.

Again, not my cup of, um, tea, Huckabee.

------------

So, will Obama finally ditch the stupid car analogy?

------------

Is Mark Dayton really going to hold at 48%? Seriously, half of Minnesota thinks this is the guy? This explains Vikings fans, I feel, somehow. Minnesota is looking like the lone holdout against the wave generally.

For those who depend upon the economy for their jobs, this is a very bad thing. Minnesota is going to lose its competitive edge over neighboring states if it lurches to the left. See Maine for a prime example.

------------

Huh. Power outage near Vegas, eh? What a coincidence.

------------

Tired of hearing the word wave. This race has more or less followed the script. That's not a wave, by any definition of the word.
