Midterm election recap

The Good
Deval Patrick is our new governor!
And "The Boy Mayor" is our new Lieutenant Governor. Worcester, represent! (And FYI, he's also an adoptive dad.)
Ed Augustus, our state senator, won reelection easily.
A big Buh Bye to Rick Santorum!
Another big Buh Bye to Donald Rumsfeld.
A big Hello to Nancy Pelosi!
South Dakotans--y'all did the right thing.
Democrats took back the House!

That sound you hear? It's a national sigh of relief.

The Bad
The Senate is still too close to call.
Our state's family child care collective bargaining initiative failed.

The Ugly
John Fresolo won reelection. Don't get me started on him.
Bans on equal marriage passed in 7 of 8 states.

All in all, the good outweighs the bad.
