Here are a few responses to the 2014 elections at the Huffington Post the day after the elections.
Front-Page Headline: “DEM NIGHTMARE: GOP SET FOR FIRST CRACK AT TOTAL POWER”
Correct me if I am wrong, but didn’t the GOP control both Houses of Congress at a previous time in history?
From Robert L. Borosage, president of Institute for America’s Future:
“After the Debacle: Stopping the Great Heist”
Great heist? Really?
From Alan Colmes, Fox News contributor:
“Meet the Newly Empowered Right-wing Radicals”
Radicals? Gee, why doesn’t he mention the dis-empowered left-wing radicals?
From Marianne Williamson, author: “The Democratic Party Needs Its Soul Back”
The Democratic Party had a soul?
From Michael Keegan, president of People For the American Way:
“The Values Election We Didn’t Have — And Must Have”
Uh, every election is a values election.
From Frances Beinecke, president of NRDC (whatever that is):
“GOP Leadership Promises Worst Attack on Environmental Protection in Decades”
Politics-Page Headline: “DEMS HAD WINNING ISSUES, JUST NOT WINNING CANDIDATES”
Winning issues? I should go into the business of selling kool-aid to HuffPo writers. I’d make a fortune. Does anyone want to be my business partner?
