Today, let us enjoy this sweet, sweeping victory. The Republican Party made great gains last night, not only in the Senate and House races, but also in Governorships within states that are very very Blue. With the sad exception of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, that forward thinking cross-the-aisle fortress where only unionized government employees can sell you a bottle of booze, the GOP radically kicked Democrat butt.
All eyes are now on Mitch McConnell, that daring dandy from the state of Kentucky, who supposedly will lead the Senate in its heroic charge against the Left-wing brigade of Barack Obama. Hmmm. Forgive me though if I find the image of Mitch-Is-Their-Bitch McConnell courageously slicing and dicing the Democrats a bit of a barely believable fantasy. But today is not the day for such speculations, although the Conservative Talking Heads are already piling on with the Doomsday doubts, the divisive despair, and the neutered negativity.
At least for the next few days, let us hold in our minds eye, jaundiced though it may be, that powerful perspective of a reinvented warrior. Let us envision our Majority Man Mitch as a Ninja Nightmare ready to wreak havoc in the halls of the capitol building. Well, try anyway.
