Damn you New Jersey

Well, it looks like right wing Republican Chris Christie will win the governors race in New Jersey, giving Republicans a full sweep of the 2009 governors races and putting the Democratic majority in governorships at a tiny 26-24.
What this is going to result in is a rash of retirements from Democrats in swing and red leaning districts and major surge in Republican recruiting and fundraising. In short, we will be the underdogs in the fight to hold the House in 2010.
We worked so hard for a majority in 2006 and 2008 and now all of our work is about to be flushed down the toilet. Our last hurrah as a majority could be the passage of healthcare reform, but now that rat bastard Joe Lieberman is going to screw us on that.
This has been the shortest era of dominance for one political party in history. When we lose Social Security and Medicare, I hope everyone is happy.
