News From Home

And in Syracuse, New York Democrats denounced a Republican member of the Common Council for trying to deter people from voting for Dan Maffei, a Democrat challenging Republican Rep. Jim Walsh.

“Ryan McMahon, a Republican on the Common Council, showed up wearing a Maffei sticker in the polling place and started trying to convince people coming into vote that they were at the wrong polling place," said an email from the New York State Democrats.

....and you're surprised?
yesterday, I was told to go to the wrong polling place by Richard Nixon,
and I had been led to believe he was dead! The really curious thing was that his limo driver looked like Elvis, and I'd swear J. Edgar Hoover was in the back seat, in a chiffon dress and fishnets...or has Pat just put on a whole lot of weight?

Looks like all the cheating and robocalling didn't help in the end.

The Dems lost zero (0) seats nationally and may have won both houses of Congress back.

Good ol' Syracuse.

We tried to do our part here in PA, at least getting rid of our state's number 1 embarrassment (maybe #2 if one counts the Flyers) Rick Santorum. That was a happy thought come true. That Joe Sestak managed to boot Curt Weldon was also very pleasant news.

Not sure if the previous poster was joking or really is a bitter conservative, but if it's the latter, he/she just gave me an opening for the line I've been dying to use...

"Get over it."

But I thought when you lost an election, you were supposed to accuse the other guy of cheating. There's precedent, after all. Why, just this week the news was full of ominous warnings of election fraud.

Animus,
Apparently, there have been quite a few accusations of cheating in this election and you are right to point that out. The difference is this time it didn't work.
