The Sweet Hangover of Victory

Tuesday’s Republican tsunami left Harry Reid disgraced and desperate to rescue some semblance of Democrat relevance:

Reid has run the US Senate for the past eight years like a dictatorship, steadily eroding minority privileges to the point where Republicans couldn’t offer amendments or put up any significant resistance to Barack Obama’s radical appointments, unless Democrats forced Reid’s hand on either score. After watching his party lay a historic egg in the midterms — the size of which is still not yet fully known — Reid tried spinning the results as a mandate for the kind of compromise that he’s blocked ever since winning control of the upper chamber in 2006 . . .

Read the whole thing at Hot Air. The aftermath of a wave election always involves a contest by partisans and pundits to seize control of the narrative, to tell us What It Really Means, although usually the truth can only be known with the advantage of hindsight.

(Left to right: That’s Elise Stefanik, the Republican who last night became the youngest woman ever elected to Congress; Mia Love, who last night became the first black Republican woman ever elected to Congress; and Joni Ernst, the Republican who last night was elected Iowa’s first-ever female U.S. Senator.)

Sandra Fluke got beat and, meanwhile, back at the feminist salt mines . . .

Christian Post columnist Rachel Alexander had some delightfully blunt truths about the “catcalling” video that went viral last week:

The truth is, catcalls bother feminists because they’re jealous. One of Rush Limbaugh’s 35 Undeniable Truths of Life is that “feminism was established so as to allow unattractive women easier access to the mainstream of society.” Feminists are highly critical of women who choose to make a significant effort to look attractive. If they can stop men from complimenting pretty women, they won’t have to observe it and feel pangs of jealousy.
The other dynamic at play here is feminists want to make men just like women. They don’t want to acknowledge there are differences between the genders . . .

Feminists reacted by going completely berserk — even more berserk than usual. There’s crazy feminism and kuh-RAY-zee feminism.

Today I’ve been chilling out most of the day, watching MSNBC and laughing. Elections come and go, but the Culture War never ends.

    It’s really tedious to try and dig up that stuff. I’d like to see a deep analysis of the statehouses after this election, too. Too many folks just report on the number of R’s vs D’s. But figuring out the kinds of people who got elected around the country would be useful info to know.
