♠ - Last night's election was pretty much the best reasonably possible outcome I could have hoped for.
♥ - I mean, even Allen West lost! Perfect would have been Michelle Bachmann losing too.
♦ - It is truly remarkable how the Republican Party has become exclusively a White Peoples Party. No demographic breakdown is as extreme as race. Romney won by a landslide with white male Protestants, he just lost everybody else. Mitt Romney is President if this was 1856.
♣ - All Republicans have to do to win is repeal the 15th and 19th amendments to the Constitution.
♠ - Voter suppression efforts will accelerate as they try to do just that.
♥ - Nate Silver hit the superfecta, he called every state race correctly (except maybe Florida but that's like trying to wager on a three-legged horse race). He is one hell of a Hoboken bookie.
♦ - The rending of clothes, tearing out of hair, and gnashing of teeth over at conservative blogs is jolly fun reading. According the Republicans, Armageddon can't come a moment too soon.
