Why the Switch

I read an article that stated that people voted for a new Congress because they were sick of the extreme right. Undoubtedly, there were many reasons why Democrats were elected in to replace the Republican majority. But, it seemed silly to me to consider the past Republican majority/President as anything close to 'far right'. Am I alone in considering this past Congress/Administration anything but conservative, and therefore thinking that this vote does not signal an American vote against conservatism, but this wacky Republipostmodernim?
