Worst possible outcome for me. I was somewhere around D +5, which I guess shows my optimism. Then again, the key factor in my previous predictions was incumbency - and if being incumbent means less at election time, that's not a bad thing. Anyways, having called half the winners correctly, I neither look presciently clever nor moronic stupid enough for a Wash Post column. Also Maine Prop 1 sucks like hell.
Okay, time to assess - McDonnell was a gimme, and polls were strongly in Christie's favour for the entire campaign season only tightening near the end. NY-23 is the big story of the night having gone D for the first time in, like, a bajillion gillion years. Actually, the real story is about outside interests with deep pockets being told off by a united electorate. That's a big win.
No, my real disappointment from last night is Prop 1. I can't believe that 52.7% of Mainers (Maine-ians? Maine-ites? Maine-ese?) voted for that sucker. WTF went wrong there? Anyways, I no longer feel bad about claiming that Moxie tastes like ass.
