Most predictable thing ever just happened to Mary Landrieu

Here’s the short version if you’re in a hurry:


Wow, I guess bravely blocking Obama’s true intent by supporting the passage of Obamacare and personally volunteering to construct the Keystone pipeline wasn’t enough for Louisiana voters:

Republican Rep. Bill Cassidy has defeated Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu, denying her a fourth term and extending the GOP’s domination of the 2014 midterm elections that put Republicans in charge of Capitol Hill for the final two years of President Barack Obama’s tenure.

With Cassidy’s victory, Republicans will hold 54 seats when the Senate convenes in January, nine more than they have now. Republican victories in two Louisiana House districts Saturday – including the seat Cassidy now holds – ensure at least 246 seats, compared to 188 for Democrats, the largest GOP advantage since the Truman administration after World War II. An Arizona recount leaves one race still outstanding.

It wasn’t close:

With just over 97 percent of the precincts reporting late Saturday, Cassidy had received 57 percent of the vote, to 43 percent for Landrieu.

As it turned out, saying your state is full of racists and sexists isn’t always a winning strategy.

Here’s one of the movements that comprised Landrieu’s swan song:
