It’s all too easy right now to make fun of Republicans, but I can’t help but point out a blog post (the only blog post) from the National Republican Congressional Committee website Tuesday. Written in uncharacteristic bold face at 3:37 PM, as the routing was just getting underway, it says in its totality: “Happy Election Day!” Happy election day to you too! Anyway, as of today, that’s still the last post. Couldn’t they have taken a cue from the DCCC and instead written “Get Your Vote On“? Who knows, could have helped. The Republican National Committee and Senate Committee blogs have been equally silent since the election. The last post on the NRSC reads: “The NRSC is feeling very positive about recent election night developments.” It goes on to trumpet returns in Virginia, Missouri and Tennessee before concluding: “I am sure we will have more good news to share as the evening progresses, so stay tuned!”
