Yeah, Okay AP, If That Makes You Feel Better

Even if the Republicans win tomorrow - they are still losers: so says the AP:

"For Republicans, an election win of any size Tuesday would be a blessing. But victories in Virginia, New Jersey or elsewhere won't erase enormous obstacles the party faces heading into a 2010 midterm election year when control of Congress and statehouses from coast to coast will be up for grabs.

It's been a tough few years for the GOP. The party lost control of Congress in 2006 and then lost the White House in 2008 with three traditional Republican states — Indiana, North Carolina and Virginia — abandoning the party.

So even if political winds start blowing harder behind them and even if they can capitalize on Democratic missteps, Republicans still will have a long way to go over the next year because of their party's own fundamental problems — divisions over the path forward, the lack of a national leader and a shrinking base in a changing nation."

And so it begins.  Repeat after me . . . Tuesday's elections mean nothing . . . they mean nothing, nothing I say . . .  (that template, of course, works only if the Republicans win, otherwise the elections mean everything).
