3. 53 percent of the national electorate this year was female, according to exit poll data.

Women, overall, voted 56 to 43 percent for Obama; men voted 49 to 48 percent for him.

Ladies, Peter Morrison of Texas called us "maggots." Makes one wonder whether this name constitutes some step up in sexist talk from "slut." My take is that a dying political body is always afraid of "maggots."

My favorite quote from the article:

"...Let's give ourselves a round of applause for sending the strongest of messages to the Republican Party: No, you can't take away our health care, oppose equal pay, tell us rape is a gift, and then dismiss our anger as a "distraction" from what really matters, according to the party of old white men who think the problem is that we ladies get to vote at all.

So yes, let's be happy about this week. And then let's get back to work, because we still have a war to win."
