Remember the 3 Arkansas state reps. that loved slavery and wanted to deport Muslims?

http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1014&pid=260818

They all 3 lost last night:

* THE THREE REPUBLICAN STOOGES: David Kizzia of Malvern beat neo-Confederate Republican Loy Mauch of Bismarck; Harold Copenhaver of Jonesboro defeated another Republican slavery apologist and imnmigrant hater, Rep. Jon Hubbard, and James McLean beat the wacky former Republican Rep. Charlie Fuqua in Batesville. A flurry of last-minute publicity about these races helped Democrats immeasurably and tightened the final House count considerably.

5. Good riddance.

What a disgrace to our country that we have elected officials like those assholes in government.

6. Now we have to get ready for the mid-terms so we keep these asshats out.

We have low voter turnout here in CA. I mean, 35% in a midterm is discusting. We should have 60-70%. Lets make sure we accomplish that in 2 years. The RW knows low turnout will get their crap on us again.

7. The Dems must come out swinging for the people

I don't care if they win every fight, but they need to stand up against the GOP, consistently, unequivocally, and publicly.

The voters need to see that there's a real choice.

Here's a test: The ones who like the word bipartisan are not doing the job we need them to do.

To put it another way: How would you like a bipartisan army that wanted to work WITH the enemy troops?

(Hell, yes the GOP is the enemy!)

12. It's up to us, not talking heads of the left or right. We have to do it. It ain't magic.

10. The horrible news is that now our all 4 of our congressmen (no women)

are now republican, along with a majority in the state senate. ALEC pour millions of dollars into the state the last couple of months.

We need help here from the Democratic Leadership - come visit, make us feel that just because we aren't a swing state, our votes matter! Look at the electoral map - a huge swath of the United States has been disenfranchised from any national attention whatsoever. It's disheartening to being blue in a huge red district, especially when it didn't used to be this - Big Dawg got help from Senators Bumpers and Pryor, all we have now is pink Pryor Jr.

11. Bismarck and Malvern - that's where I'm from.

The origins of Hissyspit. My parents both graduated from Bismarck High School.

A lot of mindless racism there (good people, as well, of course.)
