Putin Loses Control Of The House

MOSCOW (The Borowitz Report)—Calling it “the biggest disappointment of my political career,” Vladimir Putin conceded late Tuesday night that he had lost control of the United States House of Representatives.

Putin made his concession speech from the Kremlin, where he congratulated the Democrats for waging a “tough fight.”

“Maybe if Facebook and Twitter hadn’t banned so many of my fake accounts, the results would have been different,” Putin said. “But I don’t want to make excuses—I threw everything I had at these races, and I lost.”

Putin did, however, have harsh words for Donald Trump, who opted for a fear-mongering closing argument about immigration despite the Russian President’s objections.

“I warned him that that would kill us in the suburbs, and he ignored me,” Putin said. “I hope this teaches him never to disobey my orders again.”

I suspect Dems are awfully disappointed.
Loaded with cash and facing a Trump with huge negatives the results fall well below expectation.
Let's compare to Obama experience.

In 2010 the Dems lost 63 seats in the House.

Beyond being disappointed, I continue to be very worried about how this is all going to turn out.

Aside from the fact that the Senate just got a couple more votes to make it easier to enable the White House, nothing else will get accomplished. The House will write bill after bill that will die in the Senate, and the House will refuse to fund the other two branches. Essentially, the White House will be able to do whatever it can afford.
