Well, is not looking like I'd hoped, but like what I expected.

Okay, my analysis...Dems overplayed the Kavanaugh thing and that caravan thing played right into Trump's hands. Them folks might as well turn around right now and save themselves the walk.

See you in 2020, Shlack! Where we'll see Trump re-elected.

Actually, the caravan is headed for Mexico City now. I think the city will swallow them whole. Any remnant that gets to the US border will just stop on the Mexico side. Last caravan, three people got asylum.

The caravan itself doesn't matter, never did. It was just a tool for Trump to scare his base into voting.

Actually, the results were entirely as predicted. There has been no significant change in the electorate, and we're still in serious trouble.

While I'm terribly disappointed at the results in my own state I'm generally satisfied with the overall election. It has allayed my fears that Democrats would f*uck up their chances in 2020. It certainly hasn't eliminated them because, as we've seen once again, Democrats can always find a way to lose.

Beto O'Rourke for president? If a single shining star emerged from this election it was him.

Florida's new Governor Elect has come out of the starting block in a remarkably sensible fashion. He graciously complimented his opponent on a race well run and when asked what his first action would be as governor he cited Florida's water problems and said that he would seek bi-partisan support by working to solve them. He's not(so far) the greedy scoundrel our current Governor and Senator Elect Rick Scott is and has been. Perhaps this won't be as bad as I think it's going to be.

Not every Republican is a scumbag. Some are decent folks with different values than you or I. I am friends with some hard-core Republicans and some devout Christians, Jews, Muslims, and Buddhists. (I have Hindu friends, too, but I don't think they are very devout.)

I think they are wrong, but not bad.
