I, for one, welcome the arrival of Kentucky's new Governor-elect.

We did it, my friends. Don't let the media lie to you: the Kentucky gubernatorial election was a great victory for progressives.

As I'm sure you're all aware, I've hated the Affordable Care Act since the day our spineless party proved incapable of implementing single-payer so many years ago. Our corporate-owned party sought to throw millions of Americans to the for-profit health insurance industry.

Consequently, I praise our unlikely progressive ally in Governor-elect Bevin. Though the corporate stooge Beshear constructed what many consider to be one of the great success stories of the Americans for Corporations Act, Bevin has promised to liberate Kentuckians from this tyranny by the thousands shortly into his tenure.

While this devastating blow to our corporate shill-in-chief's signature domestic legislation remains the primary victory of this election, a secondary achievement cannot be ignored.

Such a victory would not have been possible without the tireless efforts of our progressive allies to expose the corrupt DNC and its Prime Shillstress, DWS, for what they are. Together, we showed these corrupt, corporate masterswe wouldn't stand for their status quo puppet Conway or the health insurance industry.

Here's to more progressive victories in 2016!
