Not happy this morning. I just checked the election results for Ohio.

Not happy here in Florida either, Vic. A republican, Charlie Crist did eek out the govnah vote, but lots of dumbocrats won.

It's a sad sad day for low tax payin' Americans.

Well, as much as I hate to say it the Republicans sort of deserved what they got.

The 'new day' in Philadelphia was greeted with rain showers for the better part of this day. Perhaps ,a portent of things to come for the Democrats Aside from the rain, Philadelphia did manage to retain its national leadership in voter fraud.

This morning, on the way to work, I tuned into Michael Smerconish's radio program and was just in time to catch a caller braying that the Democrat party is the Party most capable to root out al-queda. Hmmm...I do recall for the past six years the Dems have claimed that al-queda had nothing to do with Iraq or 9/11. At that moment I felt a sense of relief over this election cycle. I realized that the Dems have replaced unparalleled political leaders and some Republican deadwood (Chafee) with Democrats who have the leadership capabilities equaling those of schmeagle. Can you imagine replacing Gandhi with Gumby? That is exactly what happened during yesterday's election.

This election was no doubt a wake up call for the GOP and their Democrat supporters.

Michelle Malkin exquisitely sums up what was lost and what has prevailed in this election cycle.

The GOP lost. Conservatism prevailed. "San Francisco values" may control the gavels in Congress, but they do not control America. Property rights initiatives limiting eminent domain won big. MCRI, the anti-racial preference measure, passed resoundingly. Congressman Tom Tancredo, the GOP's leading warrior against illegal immigration--opposed by both the open-borders Left and the open-borders White House--won a fifth term handily. Gay marriage bans won approval in 3 states. And as of this writing, the oil tax initiative, Prop. 87--backed by deep-pocketed Hollywood libs, is trailing badly in California. John Kerry's late-campaign troop smear galvanized bloggers and talk radio hosts, but it was not strong enough to overcome wider bipartisan voter doubts about Iraq.

The Dems have won, but not by a clear majority in either the House or the Senate. Coupled with the lack of leadership to act cohesively, and boxed in by the fringe left that will not hesitate to oust any Democratic politician who questions their agenda; the next two years of DNC mismanagement could well resemble a train wreck for the Dems. This new leaner and meaner GOP has the opportunity watch the Dems present their anti-war, anti-taxcut, pro-illegal immigrant agenda to the nation and make sure that it goes nowhere. One of the take-home messages from this election cycle dictates the party voted into the majority must produce tangible results or come 2008 the Party will be replaced. It almost makes it too easy for the GOP in 2008...

In 2004, my Democrat contemporaries were faced with a real Tsunami of political change. To cope with the loss, some migrated to Canada, some sought out Post Election Stress Therapy, and others lay comatose in bed for days after the election. As a conservative Democrat, I feel no strong need to cut and run as my Democrat peers did in 2004. For the GOP, this IS a New Day for the Party - bring on 2008!
