You guys weren't really worried were you? After all, this was just the primaries. And just because the number of democratic votes almost doubled doesn't mean a thing

The idiocy was the media getting so emotional over primaries. To paraphrase Alan Iverson, “It’s primaries. Primaries.”

Exactly.  *sigh*  I'm afraid this midterm election season is going to be a long and rocky road fraught with hype and emotion

The guy who changed his name to SECEDE only pulled 1%. I guess his platform that included advocating "flogging" for "vulgar language and tranvestitism" didn't go over as well as he expected?

Emotion is all they've got.... since they certainly don't have the numbers !!!!

They'll be predicting the imminent demise of the R Party countless times in the lead up to the R sweep in '18. But, it's what they do.
