On the Election

Much has been made of the Tea Party defeat in Virginia.  But the most important point is that McAuliffe barely won against a wacko who wanted to eliminate all abortion rights, ban contraception and treat immigrants as pests to be controlled.  What is most important is that McAuliffe represents all that is wrong with the Democrats, and Democrats like this can barely defeat the Tea Party.  That's not a good sign.

As for Chris Christie, we can turn to the New Jersey experience with Jon Corzine.  He probably gave Democratic governors there a bad rap for the next 15 years or so.  Of course, Christie is also less nutty than many Republican candidates.
