Agreeing with Dan_NV: "Republicans simply cannot allow Democratic attacks -- however outlandish -- to go unanswered." I have had conniptions after every election cycle because if we don't answer back to the outrageous nonsense that comes from the left, we have CANDIDATES that pander instead (McCain's berating Billy Cunningham after Bill used Barack's middle name in the introduction of McCain's opponent).

I am utterly amazed at the stupidity of any voter who works and pays taxes.

Coming out of last night's defeat, it occurred to me that there are some important things that we don't know, and some important lessons that we now know. 

What We Don't Know

Was the President's appeal personal or political?

In some ways, Barack Obama presents the perfect political storm for non-Democrats.  He has particular appeal both to minority communities and to the affluent academic-elite-lefty components of the Democrat party. So was last night's heavy   Democrat turnout a new benchmark for Democratic turnout based on support for Democrat policy, or was it a particular testament to Obama's persona and...
