Democrats win big and Republicans whine hard!
The Nation’s Ari Berman, explained how progressives fought back against voter suppression, how Republicans used disenfranchisement to keep the House, how blocking the vote is starting to hurtRepublicans with the broader public, Sam and Ari say Democrats need to get serious about expanding the right to vote, Sheldon Adelson is incredibly stupid and Citizen United still very, very dangerous.
Firedoglake’s David Dayen ran us through down ticket election results, great results on Gay rights, bold moves on Marijuna decriminalization, how the demographics favor a long term Democratic majority and and liberal victories need to start being reflected in policy.
A more progressive Senate, Bill O’reilly’s loses all subtly in his racism, the Republican bubble still not penetrated, why its good that Michele Bachman won reelection, and the wonderful moment when Fox called Ohio for President Obama, Karl Rove’s epic meltdown on election and what is Karl’s future?
And keep the conversation going on the morning thread!
