Election night, November 2, 2010, was a great night for me. If a person wasn’t counting, they were watching counters and counts.
More so than ever, the Internet was there for me. Several news web sites featured counting, numbers flowing everywhere. Interactive maps mesmerized me. Every time I moved my mouse, more numbers would pop up on the screen.
And the politicians were acting just like accountants. How so? Whatever the number, politicians were able to spin it their way. Republicans feel good about the House of Representatives, where they have control after a wave of historic proportion swept away many Democrats. Democrats can feel good because the results could have been worse.
