Revenge of the female voters

Tuesday's elections demonstrated that the GOP's war on women comes at a price.

For example:

• The citizens of Missouri rejected Todd ("legitimate rape") Akin's Senate bid in favor of Democratic incumbent Claire McCaskill.

• In the Indiana Senate race, voters chose Democrat Joe Donnelly over GOP challenger Richard ("God's will") Mourdock.

• Here in Pennsylvania, Democratic Senator Bob Casey retained his seat as voters rejected Republican challenger Tom ("similar to having a baby out of wedlock") Smith.

• And, of course, voters across the nation rejected Mitt Romney, who had promised to reverse Roe v. Wade, defund Planned Parenthood, and repeal Obamacare.

While I'm sure many mysogynistic old white men will continue to try to control women's bodies via draconian legislation at the state level, the greater momentum is obviously on our side.

Let's keep the momentum going!
