From BBC News: US Elections 2010: Congress splits between parties

This is not really what I want to talk about today, but:
US Republicans have seized the House of Representatives in mid-term elections, dealing a severe blow to President Barack Obama's ability to pass laws.
"Severe blow"? Really? He still has the Senate. He still has, hello, the WHITE HOUSE. And hey, overall he's still in a marginally better position than Clinton was in at this point in his presidency, and unless I'm remembering completely incorrectly Clinton still went on to do pretty well for himself.

So let's all just calm the fuck down, okay?

And now, for the funny quote taken out of context:
In Nevada, one of the most dramatic contests of the night, the Democrats' leader in the Senate, Harry Reid, fought off Tea Party challenger Sharron Angle. US Senator John Kerry reacted with delight: "Harry Reid isn't just Dracula, he isn't just Lazarus, he's our leader and our whole caucus is thrilled that he's unbreakable and unbeatable."
But you're saying he is Dracula? And that Democrats are thrilled to follow him? Oh my God... That Tea Party campaigner was right!
