Yes they did, yet they ended with 38 fewer seats than the Republicans in the House! How? Well, in a process that would make even top Tory strategist Gerry Mander blush, Congressional Redistricting allows partisan redrawing of electoral boundaries after a census. It would seem that the Republicans made the most of the fact that they controlled the process in a lot more places than the Democrats.

Both sides gerrymander - often with the tacit agreement of the other so they can continue to harvest safe seats.

Well the Democrats don't seem to be doing as good a job at it - there again, they didn't have as much control of the process as the Republicans.

A bizarre state of affairs, although who are we to criticise - at least the US doesn't have an unelected chamber as part of its legislature.

All he has to do is find a sports team whose name begins with 'R' and whose colours are red and white. (I believe Rochdale has a suitable rugby team!)

As if he hasn't suffered enough! ;)

Some people are just bad losers.

To only slightly misquote the Grateful Dead, "Birther, don't you come around here any more."
