What I did not expect were all of the down ballot victories. For the first time since 1928, Republicans will control all three elected branches of government. In addition to the Presidency, Republicans retained control of the House by a wide margin, losing only 6 seats — they were expected to lose 12 at a minimum. And in a very big surprise, with a number of seats up, Republicans maintained control of the Senate, losing only 1 seat. And to add to all of that is a gain of three more governors.
To celebrate, how about a bit of schadenfreude.
Sigh . . . if only I could harvest their tears for my next batch of mead.
