Some of the Bums are Gone

Well, sanctimonious prig Joe Lieberman is still around. And Orrin Hatch, of course was never in doubt. Jon Kyl easily won re-election.

But hard-core culture warrior Rick Santorum -- the man whose last name has now become a synonym for disgusting -- is gone. Don't let the door hit you on your way out, Rick.

George Allen is currently trailing by about 8,000 votes. But I wouldn't be surprised if the Republicans find a way to steal this one.

Discovery Institute shill Deborah Owens Fink lost bigtime.

All in all, it's a pretty good election. Science won. Fundamentalists lost.

A good day for democracy, I guess the system sort of works - it may take time but eventually there is a backlash against extremism and incompetence.

The Democrat who beat Santorum isn't a liberal by any definition of the word.

But he isn't an anti-gay bigot, or a supporter of intelligent design. I see that as progress.
