What to look for tonight

Look for North Carolina (polls close 7:30 EST) and New Hampshire (8:00). If the Dems lose them, or even one of them, there is no chance to hold the Senate. All races here:

1. What I would like to see is Karl Roves head explode again.

2. If you could find a way to take like-minded people off their sofas...

and put them together in a group, there would be no camera with a wide enough lens to capture the image for prosperity.

I think most on DU have the same thought.

BTW, where has he been hiding? I have rarely seen him since Romney was in shock and Rove was self-imploding.

4. I did not do any primary predictions...

...so no Cantor predictions!

I did predict the Supreme Court would uphold Obamacare, though!

5. The Cantor thing was a reset

I really believe something has shifted.

Even if we lose in the 7th tonight - we got close enough with Cory Booker's star power -


To make Lance SPEND money on a new commercial. He's been running the same ad since 2008.

He had to - he's gone so far to the Right appeasing tea types in the square states and South -

That he forgot his district was moderate .

6. IMO, as a voter in Cantor's district, Pubs here predominate and Cantor was

actually pissing off his base by being snotty and high-handed, and didn't feel like he had to meet with his constituents, etc. So the Pubs had a real primary with a dumb teabagger challenger. They, and (some say) a bunch of Democrats voted for the teabagger just to get Cantor out.

IOW, nothing has shifted as far as the makeup or conservatism of the district. It's just as conservative and hidebound as it ever has been. They just got sick of Cantor personally. They aren't out there today voting for the Democrat.

BTW, the turnout is crazy high today. I expect that the Republican, Dave Brat, will win.

7. During the shut down last year

Our Congress Ass was responding to people on his facebook from Cantor's district -

And ignoring us.

They are all in cahoots together.

There is no such thing as an in district Republican Congress Person anymore. They only care about knuckle dragging mouth breathers.
