America's next Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi (D-California)

Democrats spanked the GOP all across the country, taking
control of the House
. And with a few Senate races still
too close to call (TPM has a comprehensive scoreboard, here)
there might be more good news to come.

Overall, it was a great night. I can't remember the last time
I had so much fun watching Fox News -- Brit Hume looked
like he had landed in his anchor chair after seeing a ghost
and falling down a few flights of stairs. The best spin he
could muster all night was that the Dems victory is no big
deal because it wasn't "a surprise."

Maybe he'll change his tune when congress starts passing
out subpoenas
