This was largely as I predicted, except the Silly party won
Monty Python, Election night special 1969
I decided to hit the sack very early last night and slept poorly with horrible nightmares that kept waking me, when I woke up this morning I had a splitting headache.
When I turned on my laptop my home page Instapundit came up and I saw this:
ROGER SIMON: What Cantor’s Defeat Means.
My headache immediately disappeared
I turned on Morning Joe and expected to see the Democrats at the table full of glee, after all Eric Cantor was the #2 Republican in the house.
They were depressed.
You could see the long faces, particularly from Al Hunt.
Why would this be? Well Cantor’s defeat in a primary when his budget at steakhouses was greater than Brat’s total funds raised means one thing as stated by this Politico headline:
The table understands that “immigration reform” is the key to democrat dominance for decades to come and they spent every moment possible downplaying it as an issue in this election while their allies online did the same.
@dmataconis The only reason he didn’t vote for it was b/c there was no vote. You know he supported it.

But the bottom line, spin not withstanding is Republicans in the house have been served notice that they support Amnesty at their own risk.
“But DaTechGuy”, you ask, “The primary season is almost over, Aren’t House Republicans are now safe?”
I think not, what is to stop angry tea party people for crossing over in the general particularly in strong GOP districts since the loss of say Boehner’s seat will not give Democrats the house?
Think about it.
This blog exists as a full-time endeavor thanks to your support. The only check I draw to pay for this coverage and all that is done is what you choose to provide.
For a full month I ask a fixed amount $1465.
With the exception of January, 2014 remains a very lean year for our blog fiscally, If we can draw a mere $50 a day that will be reversed.
If you think this coverage and what we do here is worth your support please consider hitting DaTipJar below and help keep the bills paid.
Naturally once our monthly goal is made these solicitations will disappear till the next month but once we get 61 more subscribers at $20 a month the goal will be covered for a full year and this pitch will disappear until 2015.
Consider the lineup you get for this price, in addition to my own work seven days a week you get John Ruberry (Marathon Pundit) on Sunday Pat Austin (And so it goes in Shreveport) on Monday Tim Imholt on Tuesday, AP Dillon (Lady Liberty1885) Thursdays, Pastor George Kelly Fridays, Steve Eggleston on Saturdays with Baldilocks (Tue & Sat) and Fausta (Wed & Fri) of (Fausta Blog) twice a week.
If that’s not worth $20 a month I’d like to know what is?
