I read an editorial cartoon this weekend that had a pretty interesting point. I've seen a lot of news about how strange it was that the republican party gained seats this year despite the fact that there's a republican in the white house. Usually during midterm elections the president's party loses seats. It actually isn't that strange if you change the wording slightly. The party that got the most votes in the last presidential election lost seats in this election, which is what usually happens. It just so happens that the current president (appointed by the Supreme Court) got fewer votes than his opponent.

I'll see if I can find the cartoon and post a link later.
