Christmas Morning

I went to bed a little after midnight and had a hard time getting to sleep. When I went to bed, George Allen still had the lead, but Jim Webb was closing every time new numbers were reported. I woke up at five AM and it felt just like Christmas Morning. What would be under the tree? I rushed (quietly) down the stairs, checked the feed reader, and what did I see? Presents! Webb up by an almost recount-proof eight thousand votes, McCaskill winning in Missouri and Tester teasingly close in Montana. The Democrats took the House, and are a recount (or two) away from taking the Senate. Merry Christmas, America!

  1. “The Democrats took the House”
    Hah…I read that and heard that famous line “The Giants win the penant! The Giants win the penant!”
    Merry Christmas indeed…
