The Best Possible Outcome for the Country

My sister owes me $100.  She didn't believe that the Democrats would take control of the Senate and she is the liberal.  Yee of little faith.  Of course it is not official yet, but the Democrats need only for James Webb to be declared the winner in Virginia to take over.  James Webb has beaten George Allen by about 7,000 votes.  Allen has the right to request a recount, but it is highly unlikely that it will change the results by enough votes.

 

The Democrats romped yesterday.  They will pick-up about 32 seats in the House, far more than I predicted and more than what the experts thought.  They have officially picked up five seats in the Senate and Virginia would make six.  Democrat Claire McCaskill was declared the winner of Missouri right before I nodded off at 2:30am and Jon Tester was declared the winner of Montana later in the morning.

 

The polls were frighteningly accurate, as the outcome of every race came out as predicted below.  The Democrats will control both houses of Congress and will be able to serve as the watchdog to a Republican White House that has operated without bounds for the last six years.

 

What happened yesterday is great for the country.  Politicians cannot be trusted, whether they are Democrats or Republicans.  The best way to keep them in line is to give them about the same amount of power.  Now, we will have the executive branch run by one party and the legislative branch controlled by the other.

 

What is also good for the country is the turnover of incumbents.  Politicians that have been in office for too long tend to become complacent and corrupted.  Yesterday, many incumbents were thrown out.  Many of the Republican congressman that were tossed had been embroiled in scandal.  The American electorate was smart enough to get rid of these crooks.  This time they were almost all Republicans, but rest assured that the Democrats will fall into the same situation if given the chance.
