NY Times Calls GOP Win 'a Loss' - The Sentinel

Claire's loss in 2018 will be even more positive then, right?

You know things are bad for the Dems when they count a loss as a win. They're like a bad sports team that's encouraged because they only lost by a little bit.

Same old losing strategy. Dems. don't learn.
Republicans will achieve even bigger majorities in 2018.

Most of the folks who work for the New York Times think that if you cross the Hudson River you'll fall off the edge of the world.
Slumming in this part of flyover country is not their cup of tea.
In politics, one candidate wins 100% and the other loses an equal amount.
One goes to the capital to make public policy.
And the other goes back to doing however he was earning a living.
The point spread in this contest was WAY more than enough.
The Times should stick to reporting about organic kale smoothies in Brooklyn.

It was a 20 point swing from the last election, so yeah, it was a loss for the GOP.
