When we capture the Senate, it will be like putting McConnell on a fence post.

I can't wait.

I can see him sitting there, wiggling his arms and legs but going nowhere.

Go Georgia!

1. You're channeling Molly Ivins now.

Be proud.

3. I immediately thought of Vlad the Impaler when I read the title.

Poor old Mitch, everybody is always picking on him, and he is such a nice grandfatherly figure. Perhaps we could let him be the angel on top of the National Christmas tree instead.

4. You do understand we may not get the Senate.

Give money if you can send cards...text...work it. The GOP has the advantage in Georgia.

5. Not quite even if we get both seats. We'll have the barest

majority, compared to the Republicans' relative control by a several-seat majority. McConnell will be incredibly weaker but still a player.

We had hoped the non-Republican electorate would give us a supermajority on November 3, but that didn't happen.

6. Unless the (democratic) majority in the Senate takes away the filibuster,

McConnell can continue to make mischief by denying cloture. He frustrated Obama's agenda when Reid was in charge.

7. Filibuster

Joe Manchin already said he would not vote to get rid of the filibuster.
