Yuma Sun - - OPINION - BY AR­GUS HAMIL­TON

• Nancy Pelosi claimed that Democrats won a big vic­tory by tak­ing over the House, ig­nor­ing that the GOP added to its Se­nate ma­jor­ity. We have leg­isla­tive grid­lock. It’s like the Dodgers re­fus­ing to ad­mit they lost the World Se­ries, say­ing only that they won the long­est World Se­ries game in his­tory.

• Adam Schiff vowed to in­ves­ti­gate Trump on ev­ery front Tues­day. He said as long as Trump is pres­i­dent, the na­tion’s at­mos­phere will be poi­sonous. A thou­sand years from now, his­to­ri­ans will think that Bri­tain won the Rev­o­lu­tion­ary War and im­posed our form of gov­ern­ment on us out of spite.

• Hol­ly­wood celebri­ties like Oprah and Jane Fonda failed to get the Demo­crat elected gover­nor of Ge­or­gia. Star power didn’t work in the South. When Tay­lor Swift en­dorsed the Demo­cratic Se­nate can­di­date in Ten­nessee, they should have known that things never end well with her and men.

• Ne­vada vot­ers made news Tues­day when they elected the late Moon­lite Bunny Ranch pimp Den­nis Hof to the state leg­is­la­ture. The cable news an­chors had to ex­plain with a straight face that vot­ers who are alive elected a can­di­date who is dead. In Chicago they do it the other way around.
