Gop keeps their seat in Georgia

Sen. Saxby won re-election in the run off yesterday. It was a hot run off with political big shots from both sides showing up to rally for their candidate. With this win it means the democrats will not reach the magic number of 60 seats. Which means the Republicans still have filibuster power. I personally think it is good. If the democrats would have gotten 60 seats it would have meant a rubber stamp congress without checks and balances. What do you think?

In all of this, I can think of only one sentiment to express. One word that describes things. I can only use one word and that word is: [b] [i] WHEW!

I agree, I was getting pretty worried myself. I am sooo glad we dodged that bullet.
