I don’t know why so many liberals are all gloom & doom tonight. The results are pretty close to what was predicted, with Dems taking the House & losing a couple of seats in the Senate. Governor’s races looking pretty good for D’s, too. Chin up, y’all. This is far from a bad night

Another good thing about this election: More people — more voters & would-be voters — have now been exposed to the rank fraud, gerrymandering, and similar tactics that have allowed the GOP so much political control even when they’re outnumbered by decent people. Sunlight, as they say, is the best disinfectant…
The Democrats are on track to win 230 house seats and the national popular vote by 9.4%. The number of seats would be higher without gerrymandering — in the range of 240-250. https://t.co/UGODA4ekLt

It’s worth repeating: deliberate obstacles to people voting, targeted at particular constituencies, are violations of their constitutional rights. They’re not shenanigans. They are an attack on democracy. The government’s unwillingness to defend those rights doesn’t change that.
