GOP Good News on SI?

The New York Times decides to do a post election story about the GOP in Staten Island. Why now, who knows? But they decide to highlight the success of the party based on the fact that they didn't get beat as badly as the party did elsewhere in the state.

But there is one area in New York City where the Republicans have dominated and show little sign of losing control: Staten Island.

They note that Fossella did not lose against a vigorous Harrison, and decide that not flipping any seats is "domination". Of course they lost Mirones' assembly seat to Democrats when Janele Hyer-Spencer won a close race. Here is to giving the GOP even more good news like this in February and again in 2008.
