    You forgot the first Korean-American woman elected to Congress (and the first Korean-American in 20 years.)

      I read this morning that the 39th district is among the uncalled races. That’s probably why Young Kim isn’t on the list.

    I was feeling really good about all the women elected. All the terrible men booted out of congress and voted out of all the different offices. It wasn’t the blue wave I’d hoped for, but I knew my expectations were a little high.

    The last 48 hours have been just terrible. Installing a shady attorney general, booting out Acosta with a doctored video, ugh. And poor RBG.

    I have to hope the democrats will start real investigations the Drumpf family.

    The REAL reason many white women vote for turds is — like many white men — most are simply dumb as fuck.

      So would you say like 9 in 10 white women are dumb as fuck, compared to about 4 in 10 white men? Or how would you quantify most / many?

      A lot of these votes are based upon religion/culture. There also is a big break in white women’s votes by age and marital status.

    Jared Polis may be the first openly gay governor, but honestly, he’s kind of a tool.

    And here I am with my fingers crossed that my district votes out the first female African American republican representative. She’s crazy and I really like the guy who ran against her. The race is still too close to call.
