Instant analysis of election results from a handful of races in an off year election is not very significant one way or the other. We'd be wise not to buy into the tub-thumping or doomsaying of pundits posing as priestesses

What you won't hear the spinners crowing about is the shocking punch to the gut the GOP took in upstate New York's 23rd Congressional District, where a Democrat won for the first time in over 100 years.
The election results show that no incumbent governor (or incumbent party) can escape the wrath of an electorate that continues to bleed while it watches tax dollars squandered on foreign wars and Wall Street fat cats.
