ok, republicans won governorship in virginia and new jersey. bummer. but not the end of the world.
the real comedy is in new yorks 23rd district, a district that has been republican for over 100 years. everybody was supporting the conservative (read: lunatic right wing) candidate, doug hoffman. rush limbaugh, sarah palin, fred thompson, sean hannity, glen beck supported him, and republicans spent millions of dollars on his candidacy.
rush limbaugh said this 2 days ago:
"When Hoffman wins the race there it will be dismissed as an outlier... Folks, I want you to print these words out. I want you to get the transcript off my website. I want you to print these out, I want you to distribute them, I want you to carry them with you, and we'll just see how close I am to being right when Hoffman wins." - Rush Limbaugh
so with all that money and the support of rush limbaugh and sarah palin, what happened? what happened in this district that has voted for a republican congressman for over 100 years? the democratic candidate won.
notice to republicans: following rush limbaugh and sarah palin isn't necessarily such a good idea if you actually want to win elections. ok, time to play a show in lausanne.
