It's fun watching the Left in total denial about Bush's clear victory.

Bill Handel on KFI640 acknowledged that the President had won a clear victory, though Bill denied he had a mandate.
With the new majorities in Congress, what if Bush governed as if he had a mandate?

Jim Lehrer asked last night if Bush was a lame duck. The consensus on the Lehrer Newshour Team: not for two years. Robert Shields put forth a theory of a six-year itch, claiming the GOP would lose in 2006, the sixth year of Bush's term.
Well they may deserve to, but we've heard the "wait til next time" every year since 1994.

Daily Kos is more coherent this morning, aware that the Democrats under McAuliffe resemble a Yugo hit by a freight train. Last night he was less than acute:

I've always said today was merely a battle in a long war. The GOP built its electoral dominance over 40 years by building a massive, well-funded message, training, and media machine.

We started putting ours together last year.

In what country? I suppose Clinton was just cruisin'?

I've always laughed at that sort of nonsense, but for the first time in a year, I can do so without any reservations. Thanks Mr. President!
