(The 1994 Mid-term elections - enough hot air to fry eggs)

The only parallels I am drawing between last nights fiasco and the fiasco of 1994 is the level of shock at the outcome. That's it.

The Debacle of Coakley is the direct result of complacency, arrogance and unsuitability. Mistaking it for anything other than a repudiation of an incompetent candidate is wishful thinking.

That said - here is a clip from the Sunday before the mid-term election of 1994 (November 6, 1994) when the threatened loss of a majority vote in the Senate and The House was a very real possibility. One which came to pass as matter-of-fact.

Liane Hansen: “Political experts say in many of the races turnout will be the key, and Republicans tend to be more dependable voters than Democrats. That’s the case in California where the President stumped for Democratic Gubernatorial challenger Kathleen Brown and for incumbent Senator Dianne Feinstein.”

It's many months off until the 2010 mid-term election - but it's never too early to start paying attention. History is a pain in the ass if you don't learn from it.
