5 things we learned from Election Night 2013

    Except for the fact that "healthcare" was at the bottom of the exit poll list of importance to voters ... so, yeah. If only. The fact is Cuccinelli lost. Therefore, anti-Obamacare talking points lost.

    Ponder on it and then move on. Yes?
    Yes indeed my friend!
    I am elated at last night's results.
    We've re-learned in the process that Republicans are sore losers.
    What difference does it make whether he lost by 1% or 10%. The fact remains that Cucci lost, and McA is the new Guv.
    The whole Obamacare referendum turned into a referendum on GOPeeing Teatards.
    Those folks that embrace the ACA but hate Obamacare (bless their stupid/hateful little hearts!) will ultimately find themselves quietly thanking the President for it, just like they clamored for it when he campaigned on it in 2008.
    So yes girlfriend, I'm thrilled that my time was well spent in Virginia and I am more than ready to move on....with or without some folks.
