Thats the title of my relatively short, very preliminary consideration of the meaning of the election. I worked mostly from the election returns and so didnt really touch directly on the substantive issues that may or may not have moved the electorate.
My basic argument is that the bad news is the good news. Republicans have received an electoral wake-up call and have lots of incentive to address it. By contrast, the leading Democrats are insulated from the electorate in deep, deep blue districts. As a result, theyre susceptible to being disconnected from the electorate, as well as from the newly elected members who gave them control of the House.
