Yesterday, Republican David Jolly defeated Democrat Alex Sink in a congressional race for Florida’s 13th district to decide who would finish the term of Republican Bill Young, who died last October.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz spun the Dem loss in a race many considered to be a referendum on Obamacare as a GOP underperformance. The district, according to CNN, is 37% Republican, 35% Demcorat, and 28% unaffiliated. Obama won the district both the 2008 and 2012 presidential elections.

Matt Yglesias, now executive editor of Ezra Klein’s Vox.com, the fledgling site with the stated mission of making the news easy to understand, “simplified” things this way:

Many aren’t buying the Dem spin for the loss:

Wasn’t Obamacare going to be so awesome that the Republican would have trouble winning elections again?

Actor Nick Searcy can’t figure out what the Dems are trying to say:
