Anyone else kind of stoked about the election results?

I am. I think President Obama has been excellent on women's issues (equal pay, contraceptives, abortion rights, etc.) and the alternative would have, frankly, sucked. I'm still smiling.

2. I'm really looking forward to it!

We just passed the marriage equality initiative here in Maryland. And voted in the DREAM act. The country is transforming for the better.

3. Yes--the whole country showed them exactly what we think about their attempts to turn back the clock

And the idiot Repugs think that "if only Akin and Mourdock wouldn't have made those comments about rape" they win this issue. WRONG. It's not the comments, it's the policies behind them.

4. We won't go back.

That message was sent loud and clear. The war on women is real and American voters fought back on November 6.

5. Some of the more thoughtful conservative pundits

("Thoughtful conservative"--there's an oxymoron!) have actually suggested that the Repug Party give up the fight against women's and LGBT rights if they want a future. Then there's Bobby Jindal whose wise advise is to change the "tone" of the message but not the message itself.
What they're all forgetting is that we voted against their economic policies as well, which are just as wrong as their social ones.

6. Exactly

It is not just about women's rights. Trickle down economics and tax breaks for the wealthy don't benefit the majority of women, or anyone else for that matter. I'm borrowing one of my daughter's favorite terms about Republicans here - their whole agenda "sucks."

7. I am grateful that some of the more vocal woman-hating monsters have been defeated. but it is

clear that the woman-haters did NOT get the message (witness ohio). The only difference between akin, mourdock and some of the other thugs is that they were very clear, and very vocal. We won a skirmish in the war against women, we have not, as yet, won the war.
