Seriously. Not 50%+1 eeking out the base. Going against the dirty tricks and the gerrymandered inertia and all the rest and swapping 28 (or more after all the recounts are done) house seats AND moving the senate to (as of this writing) either deadlocked or a Dem majority.
Spare me the excuses of how it’s the off season and all that mishigas. You spoke quite plainly in 2002 when the GOP didn’t do half as well. Any words now, especially in contradiction of what you said then, can only be taken as sour grapes.
This, sir, is a mandate. The curtains have been drawn back, and light is about to shine where the shadows clung. I certainly hope things are as clean as you’ve claimed, but given what crawled out before I rather doubt it.
