Republican Senate candidates who were defeated last night
Tommy Thompson (WI)
Heather Wilson (NM)
Connie Mack (FL)
Pete Hoekstra (MI)
Linda McMahon (CT)
Todd Aiken (MO)
Richard Mourdock (IN)
Connie Mack and his vile wife Mary Bono Mack both lost. The fucking losers at the HRC endorsed Mary a few years ago when she was running against a Democrat who was pro-marriage equality while Mary was AGAINST it! They said she was "electable" (like Hitler was). So happy to see that cunt kicked to the curb. And the guy she lost to is pro gay marriage.
All Mary Bono had going for her was her famous last name and her connection to Sonny.
Now it looks like even that wasn't enough to keep her seat.
Heidi Heitkamp (D) in North Dakota appears to have beat Rick Berg (R) by a slim margin tho there might be a recount.
Heather Wilson, wow haven't heard that name in a long time. Howard Stern used to make fun of her mercilessly after the Janet Jackson/Justin Timberlake 'Nipplegate' incident. She was one of the most vocal advocates for cracking down on decency on television, etc. Good riddance.
Heather Wilson was defeated by new hottie Dem Senator Martin Heinrich!
Martin Heinrich is very nice looking!
You forgot the asswipe from MA that Elizabeth Warren beat!
Michelle Bachman lost her seat in the House? Please tell me that's true!
Almost, R7, but not quite. She was narrowly re-elected early this morning after nearly being defeated.
Linda "George Bush was the greatest President ever" Lingle in Hawaii lost. Lost BIG.
Vetoed civil unions. And did I mention she LOST?
Maizie Hirono defeated Linda Lingle by about 25 points.
She replaces outgoing Democratic Senator Daniel Akaka who is retiring.
What about the House? Did Dems pick up seats there? What's the net change?
Did anyone see Richard Murdoch's concession speech on cspan last night? Members of his family were on stage and they looked like white trash. I'm not throwing that term around likely, but they looked like stereotypical white trash.
someone should start a thread on House defeats
as great as these are, none are as satisfying as seeing that bile spewing hellspawn Joe Walsh being sent packing by Tammy Duckworth and fathead misogynist Uncle Tom Allen West booted as well.
let them drink poisoned tea.
Sorry to hear about Ol' Crazy Eyes. Did Allen West end up losing?
Republicans keep the House and the margin stays pretty much the same. GOP lost some seats, but so did the Democrats.
Yes, R14, although it was very close so I'm not sure if there will be a re-count, but the odds are West is gone.
As a pro-choice woman, in addition to the Obama, wider LGBT, future SCOTUS and even the legalized weed victories, it is also a fucking PLEASURE to see the dismissing of the rape-apologists!
As a citizen, I am thrilled for Obama and the nation and the Supreme Court!
As a bisexual, I am thrilled as part of the gay community!
As a woman, I am thrilled to see my reproductive rights defended and the rape apologists/forced pregnancy apologists ousted!
R17, they didn't make as much noise as the fundy women and tea-partiers, but I was surprised by how quickly and vehemently normal everyday women turned on those assholes. Nobody bothered to interview them because they're not as much fun as the crazies, but they were there.
A friend who lives in PA told me her Presbyterian women's group was ready to take up arms against Todd Akin. They were livid. Average women I know who would not themselves have an abortion are deadset against politicians telling them what they can or cannot do to their own bodies. Women know about the days of back alley abortions and women dying because they couldn't have a child.
They were also horrified at the casual demeaning of rape survivors by a bunch of backward hicks with no medical knowledge.
I went to bed early last night. Can someone tell me if the repugs are still winning PA, MI, and WI, on top of VA, NC and FL, which they have in the bag?
According to Karl Rove, the republicans are expecting a big win.
I've been reading about Joe Donnelly lately and he sounds like a DINO. Salon listed him as one of 8 "dirty" Democrats.
