Sanity Saves the Day?

With the exception of the faux moderate Chris Christie getting re-elected in a New Jersey landslide, it was a sound defeat for social conservatives yesterday: Terry McAuliffe beat homophobic Tea Party nutjob Ken Cucinelli in Virginia, Houston's lesbian mayor, Annise Parker, was comfortably re-elected, Bill de Blasio became the first Democratic mayor of New York City since David Dinkins. (Boy was I wrong about that one!) Plus: Seattle got its first gay mayor in Ed Murray. And, as reported earlier, Illinois became the 15th state to legalize marriage equality. Is American finally wising up? We can only hope. #notholdingmybreath
