I'll get back to the action alerts tomorrow, by which time I should be done eating this giant barrel of crow about yesterday's election prediction. I clearly imposed my own moral sensibility on events yesterday -- I assumed that, since Republicans didn't deserve to win back all those seats after throwing a two-year-long tantrum, the voters wouldn't reward them. But I suppose voters had a different agenda -- punishing Democrats for not doing enough. I may question their wisdom, but I certainly don't question their impatience.
Regardless of the outcome, our task as citizens is the same -- communicate our will to our Reps and Senators until they do our will, as is their job. And I doubt our will has really changed all that much: we still want good government, and we don't want incompetent or evil government. And I maintain that this is not too much to ask.
