You're a liar, Johnny. It always was about sixty... and cramming stuff through just so Obama could look good.
Thank the Lord you and your ilk were stopped when Scott Brown became "the forty-first vote." Look, you can spin this any way you want. About the only thing you got right is, yes, the game has changed, thanks to what happened in Virginia, New Jersey and, finally, Massachusetts.
Insiders on the left and right agree that as long as the Republicans don't shoot themselves in the foot between now and November, the Democrats are going to be savaged in the midterms. All of us "idiots" and heretofore uninvolved "rubes" are going do our best to put paid to your progressive lunacy.
"It's a hard rain a-gonna fall," Johnny. Were I you, I'd wouldn't wait before heading to higher ground.
