    1. Very few wards had reported
    And they were the bluer wards. Simple
    Thanks for the nice logical input. Back to your regularly scheduled DUery.

    6. Simple?
    I have several words for what happens REPEATEDLY in Waukesha, and "Simple" isn't one of them.
    The good ole DUmmie stand by. "We didn't win, so that means FRAUD!!!"

    4. I feel like I've been had
    I feel like I've been had. I should have known better, but I didn't look at these races as closely as I should have. Instead, I trusted our usual progressive media friends to tell us the truth.

    They didn't tell us the truth.

    They could have told us that all these districts were sweetheart Republican Districts with very little chance for Democratic challengers. They knew. They've known for months.

    Instead, they chose to cover this story like it was going to be a triumphant route.

    Our Progressive bloggers, columnists and talk show hosts lied to us as badly as Fox News lies to their viewers, and in the same ways. They played us for patsies.

    I am furious at them and ashamed of myself.

    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    If they told you that then you wouldn't have sent in your last greasy crumpled up emergency $5.00 bill that you keep in your shoe.

    I was under the impression that Democrat groups chose these districts specifically because they've been historically Democrat districts?
    "In England a king hath little more to do than to make war and give away places; which in plain terms, is to impoverish the nation and set it together by the ears. A pretty business indeed for a man to be allowed eight hundred thousand sterling a year for, and worshipped into the bargain! Of more worth is one honest man to society and in the sight of God, than all the crowned ruffians that ever lived."

    Every time these goofs lie to themselves, and every time they're just as shocked as Hell at the outcome.
