Chambliss Wins In Georgia Open Thread

Well, sports fans, president-elect Barack Obama won't have a filibuster-proof Senate to work with next year:

Republican Sen. Saxby Chambliss won a run-off election in Georgia on Tuesday, CNN said, denying Democrats the chance for a 60-seat "super majority" in the Senate that would have enabled them to pass legislation virtually at will. Chambliss, an incumbent who first won his U.S. Senate seat in 2002, defeated Democrat Jim Martin for the seat in a race that gained national significance because Democrats and their independent allies held 58 of the 100 seats in the U.S. Senate after the November 4 election.

I'm verklempt. Talk amongst yourselves.
