Following last week's blowout election, Democrats are scrambling for ways to put a positive spin on their wretched, all-encompassing defeat. Specifically, they're denying that they were defeated at all.
The most recent voice of insanity is that of Nancy Pelosi, who said of the Republican victory: "I don't consider it a wave - I think of it as an ebbing of Democratic voters." In other words, the Dems had more than enough voters for a commanding victory if the voters had just, you know, voted. But instead, they stayed home - watching TV and, you know, ebbing. But outside of that little technicality, the midterms should be considered a huge win for the Left and other clinically insane people.

In the months leading up to the midterms, Democrats running for election avoided Obama like he was firehosing the Ebola virus out of his every orifice. But what is a lonely president to do in circumstances like that?
It turns out that Barry used the opportunity to write a chummy, and secret, letter to Ayatollah Khamenei in which he suggested that if Iran would help us deal with ISIS, the United States would give Iran more time to put the finishing touches on nuclear weapons with which to destroy Israel and generally set the entire world on fire.
All of which should remind every American to be grateful when this president is toodling around the greens in a golf cart instead of playing with the pens and papers he finds on his desk.
And finally, we'll note that Obama has named Loretta Lynch as his nominee to replace Eric Holder as Attorney General. It is unknown whether she will also continue her country singing career.
Lynch is considered to be singularly well-qualified for the job, having gained a reputation as an advocate against "human rights abuses" committed by the filthy, horrible police (in fairness, the case she's most associated with really was a vile crime committed by a policeman against a minority). She also recently given a speech in which she characterized voter ID laws as attempts to "take back" the gains made by Martin Luther King Jr.
She is expected to win unanimous approval for the position, because no one but no one in the GOP wants to be described in the MSM as being part of a "Lynch mob." And trust us, they would be.
