#1 yeah, it's all about the redistricting. Couldn't possibly be a widespread repudiation of the Pelosi agenda and the bitch herself

#2 They also failed to mention that Walsh has been a victim of redistricting. THAT's about repudiating hyperpartisanship, y'know.

#3 I hope the tea party doesn't go away, I hope they redouble their efforts to keep Mitt's feet to the fire in case he gets squishy.

#4 The crash of the Tea Party? Not so fast. The Tea Party has been demonized by the Left ever since they emerged as a political force. Their demise has been predicted and hoped for and and yet they are still around and their influence felt.

#5 Democrats are favored to hold on to the Senate -- an outcome few prognosticators envisioned at the beginning of the year.
Really? Has the memory hole been topped off?
About that Tea Party -
"If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself,
you will succumb in every battle"
― Sun Tzu
When you lie to yourself, you're in the third category.

#6 The Tea Party is NOT going away. For starters, is is not the Tea PARTY, but a true grass roots amalgamation of hundreds of local Tea Parties, with no national command. They are much more like the original Committees of Correspondence and other local revolutionary groups of the 1770's than anything since. They will continue to work for local candidates and issues, to meet and discuss local and national issues, to educate and organize. If (when?) the 'system' collapses under its own weight, they will be the only thing left between anarchy and dictatorship. Join one.

#7 Notice that the only way the dems debate the Tea Party is with ad hominem attacks. They have nothing in their tool kits except the ad hominem tool. Well, even with the MSM carrying water for the dems, people are getting tired of that juvenile behavior.

#8 Dems didn't give up one the House. The voters gave up on the Dems.
