The politicians are playing musical chairs and racing around those last few unclaimed seats but the music’s about to stop.

And it looks for this moment like, welcome to the new Congress, pretty much the same as the old Congress.

There isn’t a word for relieved+exasperated, but there should be. Exasperieved?

Pretty great word to coin, but I don’t think it will be that simple. There are some huge sighs of relief for a couple of moral hazards, but…total final balance is still unclear in the Congress.

In Utah, it looks like extreme spending on character assassination has been successful for U.S. Senate.

I find Oklahoma results to be disappointing. I can say that, I voted, but not for any of the ‘winners’ Arrrgh.

The bad guys won in most of the major posts, but my guy is going back to Congress, and my gal is going back to Austin. My rowdy friend PM’d me, saying, “what happened? I thought you had it covered there in Texas!” I told him that the bipolar bears and I had done our best, but that I should have had more kids. About 900K more kids.
