High placed Democrat planners smugly confessed that recent election results fell out exactly as they had planned. Republicans will no longer be able to complain that their voices are not heard and can no longer accuse Democrats of running roughshod over them in passing legislation.
While Republican pundits reveled in the apparent redirection of American politics they were stunned to learn they were actually pawns in a well-constructed and implemented Democratic plan.
DNC Chairman Tim Kaine said he was concerned that their strategy might leak prior to the election and spoil their efforts to return to minority status in the house. Asked if he had any regrets he admitted he needed to do more to make sure Harry Reid and Barbara Boxer were included in planning for the next election cycle.
