I was just about to the Illinois border–returning from voter protection in Wisconsin–when the radio called both Claire McCaskill and Joe Donnelly as winners in their races. I fist-pumped and let out a string of salty language.
The upshot of which was: Go! 2012! The year that callous, misogynist views about rape cause ignorant hateful men to lose some of their grip on undeserved power.
I have since dialed back the invective, but I am still overjoyed that such ignorant and hateful views about rape had clear political consequences for the people who lack so much compassion as to hold such views and defend them to their last breath.
