    And arent you glad that you can point this out? I figured he might show up. In fact I figure people that spend less time in here are either smart enough to realize its a big waste of time or saner than most of us. Admit it. You are glad he is here. Spurrier needed his Fulmer. Reagan needed his welfare queen. Archie needed Meathead and you need Cuz. It makes things a little more interesting. Btw you would both be surprised how decent each of you are in person. You are BOTH huge gator fans and pretty smart guys..........if you would both take a breath and count to 10 this could easily be fixed somewhat. I will arrange the summit for a few beers. Give me some time.
    time for me to back to school for some math lessons............my kids await me.

      Fair reply.

      And the intent of my response was not to give Democrats kudos in any way, it was just to illustrate that a strong Democratic showing could also be manifested in closer-than-expected races, even if the Democrat doesn't ultimately win.

      The Democrat hardly spent any money in that race. I couldn't have even told you who the candidate was

      For Gov. Greg Abbott, a victory, though not the towering one he’d hoped for over Lupe Valdez | 2018 Elections | Dallas News

      But not geographically significant enough to stop Trumps landslide victory in 2020 or the reflipping of the House....If you noticed DT's campaigning strategy back in 2016 was nearly surgical and he did the same this time by assuring Red Governor's in the initial battleground states....Ever hear of a hollow victory.....I think the Dems just found one and it will cannibalize the party with the 2 directions....

      Fair enough.

      That said: there really isn't a ton of positives Democrats can take away from this IMO. They wanted this to be about stopping Trump...and while they had a few gains, they lost ground in other areas and failed in their ultimate objective to give Trump the type of "blue wave" rebuke they so desperately wanted.

      And after historic amounts of money and effort spent for a midterm...it'll be challenging to get everyone back on board in 2 years when the leaders didn't deliver the expected returns this time around.

      If the point of the democratic victory is to show that they too, can get tons of money to win elections and that a increasing amount of the populace would rather lay on their collective asses, smoke pot, talk shyt about the police and run around in the streets claiming that they want a communist system with one social class. Save your post cause that was obvious before the election.

      And I would expect that Trump will double down and that most of the establishment pubs that were anti-trumpers are either on the way out or getting their marching orders to get on board or get run over.

      Beta had a fawning media slobbering his knob and wishin’ a libby wish that their reincarnation of Jack Kennedy could lead them to the promised land. I quit counting the puff pieces written about him. He out spent Cruz by multiples of 3/1. Cruz was constantly mocked for his looks and stiff personality. Yet with all that he still beat Beta.

      Funny thing is is that the Dems will try to run Beta for prez in 2020.

      Please let me know what show this was on. I’d love to listen to a Georgia resident that didn’t know how many AA lived north of Macon.

      I agree that was no wave. It was a mixed bag.

        I think you are right about the RINOS retiring or getting wacked by Democrats.

        Then you lose all protections for minorities Einstein.

        I know you’re slow, but even you should be able to grasp this concept.
