GOP Backed Measures Fall Flat

The good news about the very off-year electonthat happened yesterday was that not only did a lot of Democrats get elected or re-elected, but the ultra-conservative agenda of the GOP/Teaparty was soundly defeated nationwide in most cases. 

Most notable was the bat guano crazy "personhood" amendment in Mississippi.  It would have given fertilized eggs full rights as people.  I am pretty sure there were already lawyers booking flights to Mississippi for the tsunami of lawsuits that would be spawned by that lame-brained idea.

New York Times has lots more.
