There must be some mistake


    It’s shortly after midnight, 4-5 November and the talking heads are telling me Republicans have seized the Senate and expanded their hold on the House.

    Must be some mistake.

    After all, Democrats have the lead among women, Latinos, blacks, union members, millenials, smart young people on Twitter, and among anyone else whose opinion counts for anything.  Right?
