They have so much to regret and we have so much ahead of us to do to fix all their mistakes... All the bi-partisan rethoric will die within a short while. We will have to continue to fight them just as we have for this election cycle. They will not change. Our only hope is that we do not change either. We must continue to fight like the destiny of our country depends on it... - fc
Update :: Thought I would add a little more fuel to the fire... It looks like Karl Rove realises how the corruption issues could have been the straw that broke the camel's back... After all when The Architect Speaks ::
"The profile of corruption in the exit polls was bigger than I'd expected," Rove tells TIME. "Abramoff, lobbying, Foley and Haggard [the disgraced evangelical leader] added to the general distaste that people have for all things Washington, and it just reached critical mass."
Also :: It looks like David Kurtz at Talking Points Memo sees how the corruption issue was important...
You get the sense from the GOP that in its analysis of the election results the congressional seats lost due to Republican ties to public corruption shouldn't really count. Sort of like losing the game not because you got beat but because the refs made a bad call.
I think most people would view bribery, influence peddling, and sexually predatory congressmen as substantive problems, not mere technicalities. Maybe that's just me.
