1. Maine, Maryland, and Washington all voted to legalize same sex marriage, while Minnesota defeated their anti-gay marriage amendment.
2. Two of the rape apologist assholes (Akin and Mourdock) were defeated in their races.
3. The first openly gay senator was elected. (Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin.)
4. Both of our nieces (and, I hope, any children we have) will have been born with Barack Obama as president of the United States. That was one classy acceptance speech.
