I think you're "overstating" the matter a bit. Just think how us Libertarians feel, but then again, we're USED TO it. =)

Oh, I don't know....losing both the Senate and the House can't really be overstated...not to mention all the switches in governors, etc. Granted, many of the races were close enough to avoid talk of a Democratic "mandate" (the favorite meme following the huge Republican victories of '02 and '04). Any way you look at it, the Democrats cleaned our clocks last evening, and I won't even try to explain it away by blaming it on the usual suspects.

Not to start Blog War, but put the Constitution where Cap is and you know how I've felt for three years.

Notice that in many races, the Libertarian candidates actually covered the spread between the Dems and Repubs?

And, as I just said over on my blog -

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.

Mark Engblom

Yeah, as the smoke clears, it becomes more apparent how badly off-course the Republicans had strayed from conservative principals of late. I could almost sense a feeling of relief mixed in with the heaping helpings of disappointment and, frankly, shock. I've also been heartened by the largely positive post-election behavior of conservatives. No accusations of vote-fixing or stealing, no packs of lawyers and activists screaming and yelling for CNN cameras, etc. I'm actually quite proud of our side in the wreckage of the 06 elections.
