UPDATE BY PATTERICO: The rumors of the Tea Party’s death were greatly exaggerated. Ha.
How’s amnesty sounding now, guys?
UPDATE x2: Let me try to put this in perspective for those who don’t follow these matters closely. As Allahpundit explains, the race was something of a “referendum on amnesty” — one in which the pro-amnesty candidate held the position of incumbent and (this is the stunner) House Majority Leader.
This has huge implications for amnesty. Allahpundit says categorically: “the House isn’t going to pass anything on amnesty anymore.”
I say it’s time to open some champagne. And I don’t even like champagne.
