We 300 Spartans of the Twin City Tea Party are breaking out the Mead in our Valhalla at the Border Grille and Bar.
Update: The slideshow from Valhalla
There is not a long face in the house as we celebrate the greatest Republican victory nationwide in 90 years.
And what do the democrats in Massachusetts show for their empty war chests? Keeping what they already had, and losing their chairmanships that allow them to re-fill them.*
If that’s not cause to celebrate I’d like to know what is!
Speaking of reasons to celebrate:
Now the two candidates are separated by 659 votes, meaning absentee ballots will decide the election over the next three weeks.
Maffei entered the day with 89,744 votes (52 percent) to Buerkle’s 84,165 votes (48 percent), according to unofficial election returns compiled by The Post-Standard.
After Wayne County reported, the new vote total is 99,594 or 50.17 percent for Buerkle and 98,935 or 49.83 percent for Maffei.
Let the Big Red Wave roll!
*Roxeanne, who has co-opted DTG’s computer without his knowledge or permission, would like to note that we saw one of the greatest victories in this race: a Democrat was forced to (heaven forbid) reach into his own wallet. Barney Frank is $200,000 poorer for having faced Sean “Build Me a Robot” Bielat.
