Links to stories on the mid-terms

Here is one to start with, via Instapundit: far from hampering the Republicans, the Tea Party Movement has helped the party back to victory, according to the Christian Science Monitor. Glenn Reynolds says "told you so". That's usually true. He also kept advising people not to get cocky and he was right.

This is an interesting take on the process. I heard from various friends about the many issues they were voting on, not just who goes to Washington or the State House, but here is the list of what the voters of Oklahoma decided on yesterday. Get that? THE VOTERS DECIDED ON A NUMBER OF ISSUES. Could we all start bellowing that at people who snootily tell us how primitive the American political system is. Yes, they seem to believe in "government of the people, by the people, for the people". Justin Juozapavicius of Canada Business seems to think that the 11 state questions simply clogged the ballot paper. After all, it is hardly the people's business whether judges use international or Islamic law or whether they stay with what had been intended since the founding of the Republic, American law.

Washington Post acknowledges that "Conservatives are back". According to Rush Limbaugh, they never went away and the man is laughing. Read this essay in The American Spectator about the campaign mounted against him and against anyone who stood up for those principles. Well, as the song goes
But ho, ho, ho.
Who's got the last laugh now?
Of course, it's never the last laugh, not in democratic politics, no matter what the Left think when they win.
