Wave?

“Texas Democrats were hoping for a "blue wave" Tuesday night; instead, voters from both parties raced to the polls — and the minority party in the state fell short of the GOP in the vote tally once again.

With 99 percent of precincts reporting Wednesday, Democrats had cast a little more than 1 million votes. Republicans, on the other hand, accounted for 1.5 million votes. Of those, nearly 700,000 came on Election Day.

If you looked at early voting numbers, you might have thought Democrats had an edge. More than 650,000 people voted early in the 10 counties with the most registered voters. More than 370,000 of those were Democrats, compared to nearly 283,000 Republicans.”

I think we will all see that the blue wave the liberal media is claiming will happen is nothing more than a blue swirl like the kind you see go down the toilet after a fresh cleaning.

Given the quality of most candidates, not such a bad idea.
