My latest for the examiner tell the story of a doomed band of brothers fighting a seemingly impossible fight:

The twin city tea party filled the large event room, there was food, drink and frolic as members celebrated for hours their efforts of Election Day.

A victory party seemed out of place. Just two days earlier Massachusetts democrats had swept every statewide office from Auditor to Governor losing only two Governor’s council races and a handful of State Legislative seats.

When you look at races like ny-23 that are turning on under 2000 votes, think how much it meant nationally for the country for Democrats to be pinned down defending ground they shouldn’t have had to.

    I couldn’t stop laughing when I read the post about the TCTP partying when their efforts led to ZERO victories in Massachusetts.

    Comparing yourself to the 300 Spartans. Laughable as well. People all across the country did not go to the polls and say to themselves ‘wow, those conservatives in Massachusetts sure did sacrifice themselves during this election season. I must now vote for the Republican or More Conservative choice in my local election’

    Tell it for what it was. The location and catering was booked and paid for in advance. You had a get together.

    The losing team usually doesn’t pop open the champagne.

    But then again, this is massachusetts. They had a parade in 2003 when the Red Sox lost the ALCS.
