Well, things are indeed looking grim in the House -- Fox is projecting the House will now be controlled by the GOP. Sean Hannity is suggesting it will be in the vicinity of 60 seats. We'll see.

But the Senate? It pretty much was guaranteed to remain in Democratic hands when Joe Manchin won in West Virginia. And Joe Sestak is looking strong against Pat Toomey in Pennsylvania, which would pretty much seal the deal. Also, Alexi Giannoulias in Illinois is looking pretty strong with 50% of the vote in.

So much for that huge, earth-shaking tsunami.

Please chew away in the thread below.
