A bright spot in an otherwise awful day for Pennsylvania Republicans

If you're looking for a bit of good news from Tuesday's shellacking Republicans took in Pennsylvania, the Republican Party did pick up a Congressional seat held by a Democrat and now have 13 of the state's 18 Congressional seats.

Without Obama on the ticket, Democrats have no chance of retaking any of the 13 seats in 2014.

And don't be surprised if Bob Casey resigns from the Senate to run for Pennsylvania governor in 2014, so Democrats wasted their vote on Senator Zero. Unless Ed Rendell decides to get back into politics, Democrats don't have any viable candidates for US Senate, so Pennsylvania could end up with both Senates seats held by Republicans heading into the 2016 elections.

Good day for Pa. Dems, but GOP keeps control
