Thoughts on November 2010 Election

by the Left Coast Rebel

Last night was exciting nationally, disappointing beyond description, locally. California voters and frankly, those that reside here are truly some of the most ill-informed, suicidal bunch in the world. For the life of me, I cannot fathom that Jerry Brown is my governor and Barbara Boxer is still in the United States Senate. It just boggles the mind.

It's easy to feel a bit of a come-down from yesterday but nationally (which is the most important, by the way), the message couldn't be any more clear - the Obama socialist agenda is not what this country wants.

Reasons to celebrate:

  • Nothing says b*tchslap like the biggest GOP victory in the House since 1938 and the biggest gain of any party in the House since 1948. How's that for a mandate?
  • Marco Rubio looked extremely presidential and is sure to be a future leader for the nation. Marco Rubio for President?
  • Rand Paul's huge victory. That, in itself, says it all.
  • A new capitalist caucus in the Senate that will include Pat Toomey, Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, Jim DeMint, Ron Johnson, Tom Coburn and others. These guys have the potential to control the agenda in the senate.
  • Paul Ryan (this perhaps is one of the most important aspects of the House rout last night), will be the chair of the House Finance Committee.
Things that stink on ice:
  • Joe Miller's likely defeat.
  • Ken Buck's likely defeat, too.
  • California, for the most part, across the board.
  • Sharron Angle's defeat (this one makes me sad).
Politics is a rough-and-tumble sport. Last night was a big victory. Now buck up, relax and get some rest. For the first time in two years, you've earned a bit of a respite.

(Now here's to keeping the GOP leadership accountable via. the tea party!) Discussion over at Memeorandum.


  1. Tim: Connecticut, like California, continued down the road toward civil service union pension induced bankruptcy. Staggering stupidity.

    As the great British PM said...pretty soon you run out of other people's money. The day of reckoning is not far off.

  2. On the flip side, I am so proud to be a Floridian!

  3. Well, last night was definitely a little sad, knowing that the majority of our fellow citizens are idiots of the first order, but we also knew it was a long shot.

    I am shocked, though, that Prop 19 failed. I will never figure the moonbats out.

    The husband and I are fleeing soon, so we won't have to be here for the Apacolypse. I wish all you sane folks who remain the best of luck.

    Nut nationally.....I am still walking on air! I thinkthe best possible scenario played out..we have the House, so we have the purse-strings, and we stop Obambi's agenda.

    We got more than enough votes in the Senate to send a message, but by not gaining full control, we prevent The Won from being able to blame Republicans for everything. (Not that he won't still do it, but he'll look even lamer than he does now)

    It's really the best of both words. (I admit I'd have liked Harry's scalp, but he's already talking like a new man.)

  4. No rest for the weary. Great to hear the Tea Parties are still kicking *ss:

  5. I feel for you. If I was in California I think I would move.
