Sometimes the good guys actually win one. While I was typing up my rant last night, the following happened:
Mississippi 'Personhood' Amendment Vote Fails
Ohio Turns Back a Law Limiting Unions’ Rights
Maine Voters Restore Same-Day Registration
Occupy Wall Street Gets Its Generators Back
Aaaaand all three of the legislative initiatives/issues passed with serious majorities.
We may be The Stupidest Country On God's Grey Earth sometimes, but we can pull our thumb out and live up to our ideals sometimes as well. Woot!
EDIT: Further woot - I'm sorry, my karma appears to have run over your dogma:
State Sen. Russell Pearce, the controversial architect of Arizona's immigration law, was voted out of office on Tuesday evening in a special recall election. He was defeated by Jerry Lewis, a fellow Republican who does not support the immigration crackdown and has vowed to reject gifts from special interest groups and work to ban gifts for legislators.
