Pardon the Schadenfreude...

Actually, no need to pardon it...I think Hillary is going to be the next President (boy, do I hope I'm wrong), so that basically gives me two years to enjoy the hammering the Dems took in the midterms.  And to that end, articles like this one from HotAir are as honey to a bee:
In two consecutive midterms, Republicans have decimated the Democratic Party’s bench of talent, not just on the federal or statewide level but farther down the ballot as well. The GOP now controls 69 of the nation’s 99 legislative chambers, a dramatic reversal, according to Washington Examiner columnist David Freddoso, from 2008 when Barack Obama’s party controlled 62 legislative chambers. The GOP now has the total command of state government – both chambers of the legislature and the governor’s mansions – in 23 states, while Democrats command the levers of government in just seven states. In addition to the Republican Party’s 31 governorships, the GOP enjoys the allegiance of 32 lieutenant governors offices and 29 crucial secretaries of state.
