Actually, I just need a break for a day. But because I’m writing this on Wednesday, we could call it a celebration of the Tuesday election results.
Just when you thought the nation was doomed to a future of a right-wing freak show running things, voters said otherwise.
Mississippi rejected the propoal to define personhood as beginning at fertilization.
Maine voters retained same-day voter registration.
Ohio defeated Governor John Kasich’s anti-labor union law by a resounding 69-31 percent.
Kentucky Democratic Governor Steve Beshear cruised to a second term victory by more than 20 points.
Democrats held onto the state senate in Iowa which means the marriage equality is safe there for the time being.
And more. It was a good day for sanity. But a year is a long, long time in American politics. Anything can happen before next year’s presidential election.
Meanwhile, these Tuesday wins were not accidental. Thousands of people like you and me worked hard to convince voters of their position and to get them to the polls. They should all be congratulated.
