For a little while, it was beginning to seem that the Republicans had a chance of retaking the Senate. Not now.

Nick Gillespie has an interesting analysis of what has happened, and offers the GOP some advice:

Memo to Republicans: If you are perceived as very similar to the Democrats, just more awful when it comes to gender and race, you’re not going to flourish. Your odds of pulling in independents and libertarians who are tired of massive government intrusion on all aspects of our lives would skyrocket if you laid out a governing strategy that accords with what you say you’re all about.

I don’t expect them to listen.
