Gee, let’s see. What happened this week? Oh yeah! President Obama won a second term. His coalition of women, African Americans, Latinos and young people held firm. Marriage equality got the thumbs up in four states. Wisconsin made history by making Rep. Tammy Baldwin (D) the first openly gay member of the U.S. Senate. And more women will be in that chamber than ever before.
Meanwhile, Republicans remain gobsmacked by what happened. From Rush Limbaugh and Bill O’Reilly to Sarah Palin and Mary Matalin, the GOP is in a state of bewilderment. Or is that shock and awe? In response to Tuesday’s results, Speaker John Boehner extended an olive branch over the fiscal cliff while Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell set it on fire. The p-Op quiz is on fire, too. So, sharpen your pixels and get crackin’.
