In the aftermath of Tuesday's election, the media has made it appear that all is lost -- the Tea Party is in control, because this narrative keeps us glued to our seats either with delight or fury. Now, the facts.

At least eight candidates currently on today's ballot are on record saying that if elected, they will work to eliminate abortion rights, even in cases of rape, incest or to protect a woman's health.
A three or four point swing or pollster miscalculation in either direction moves projected results from continued Democratic control of the House to an 80-seat Republican victory that it could take decades for Democrats to overcome.

It's likely the Republican message of change has been connecting with voters despite the Democrat's best efforts to tie the GOP brand to some more radical members of the Tea Party.
Americans surrendered their privacy at Karl Rove's behest. Karl Rove ought to be able to confirm he has nothing to hide, like the rest of Americans have had to in the public interest.
Pat Toomey voted no on a very simple amendment that would have given our troops a little bit more change in their pockets. One of the most frequent comments I read were ones that said, "Why isn't this an ad?" Now, because of you, it is.
