    One of the Republican commentators said something to the effect that NJ Governor Christy is "giving the people what they want". I guess the people of NJ wanted funding for women's health care to be cut, the tunnel project to be cut, and for the state to fund the failing private sector Xanadu project. It would be nice if the analysts got their fact straight!

    Think I am losing my mind, the democrats that should have won, failed, the few that even fellow democrats did not like, won again. Think it is safe to say most moderate Democrats stayed home this election. This seems to happen often when there is the feeling of hopelessness.
