While you were re-electing a president:
Senator-elect Jim DeMint
: Thinks that unwed pregnant women and gays are unfit to be schoolteachers.
Senator-elect Tom Coburn
: Wants the death penalty for abortion doctors.
Senator-elect John Thune
: Mr. School Prayer Amendment.
Voters in 11 states voted to ban same-sex marriage
. The lowest
margin was 57%-43%. The highest (Mississippi) was 86%-14%. Kentucky's also bans civil unions.
That one was 75%-25%.
The Senate will likely be split 55-45
in favor of Republicans, creeping closer to a filibuster-proof supermajority. Meanwhile, 89% of these guys
are older than 65.
Enjoy your tax cut, America. You're going to need it.
