The election was a tremendous success for the Left. Look at this. It’s almost too much winning!

Rashida Tlaib, Michigan, is the first Muslim woman to be elected into Congress.

Ilhan Omar, Minnesota, is the first Somali American to be elected in Congress.

Ayanna Pressley becomes Massachusetts’ first Black Congresswoman.

Jared Polis, Colorado, is the first openly gay man elected governor in the United States.

Sharice Davids becomes one of the first Native American and openly lesbian woman to be elected to Congress.

Deb Haaland is also one of the first Native American women elected to Congress.

Letitia James becomes the first woman in New York to be elected as Attorney General, the first African-American woman to be elected statewide office, and the first Black person to serve as Attorney General.

Jahana Hayes is the first Black woman to represent Connecticut in Congress.

Massachusetts voted to maintain its anti-discrimination law protecting trans and nonbinary people.

Florida passes Amendment 4, which restores voting rights to 1.4 million ex-felons who have completed their sentences.

Centrists won all the swing seats. Even some teabaggers lost seats. Adios Sessons and Brat youu fucking Freedom Caucus cunts. I hope they go on a Koch retreat together and drown themselves on all the Koch shit they've swallowed and regurgitated to voters over the years.

I'm talking about Pete Sessions from Texas 22. Different Koch puppet.

Did the left win depends more on how these people do in office than the fact that they got in office. There was a bit of a diversity wave but people will get over that in a hurry if these diverse people are like the idiots they replaced.

"Ayanna Pressley becomes Massachusetts’ first Black Congresswoman.

So we go by each individual state now, and even the 2-3rd will be noted as "one of the first"?

Good to know that even a generation from now we won't be done with diversity "firsts".

Leftist media in 2120: "xyz is attempting to make history by becoming the fourth pansexual mixed-race Mongolian/Sealandian hermaphrodite who identifies as a comet Senator of Alaska. Can xhe overcome centuries of discrimination and win?"

Not with people like Sharice being so fucking selfish. Wasn't enough for her to be the first Native American she had to go and be a lesbian also. That means one less person gets to live the dream of being a first.

The left made gains at different levels of government, but no, they didn't win.

In the short term I'd say it was a draw. Longer term we won't know until we see if the gains can be held or even increased in 2020.

"Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, representing New York’s 14th Congressional District, becomes the youngest woman ever elected to the U.S. Congress."

Isn't she the one that calls herself a socialist but has absolutely no idea what it is or how to describe it?


"Rashida Tlaib, Michigan, is the first Muslim woman to be elected into Congress.

Ilhan Omar, Minnesota, is the first Somali American to be elected in Congress."

And so it begins.


"Jared Polis, Colorado, is the first openly gay man elected governor in the United States."

No big deal, to each his own.



"Sharice Davids becomes one of the first Native American and openly lesbian woman to be elected to Congress.

Deb Haaland is also one of the first Native American women elected to Congress."

I thought that was Pocahontas.



"Letitia James becomes the first woman in New York to be elected as Attorney General, the first African-American woman to be elected statewide office, and the first Black person to serve as Attorney General."

Perhaps she will be the first Black lady to be a Supreme Court Justice. Good luck toots.



"Jahana Hayes is the first Black woman to represent Connecticut in Congress."

Or her if she is a lawyer. Good luck toots.



"Massachusetts voted to maintain its anti-discrimination law protecting trans and nonbinary people."

Got to protect the non-binary people. ?????



"Florida passes Amendment 4, which restores voting rights to 1.4 million ex-felons who have completed their sentences."

According to potom that will net the left about 8 votes.

I think I just figured out what a non-binary person is. I just have no idea what a non-binary person is.

I find it slightly disturbing in an "I don't actually give a shit, but think about it" way that native americans can both claim themselves to be out of jurisdiction of most US laws, but then also serve as US government law-makers. Pick one, not both.

If you ever run Rugian, I will vote for you and I will make sure that everyone knows that you are the first cis white male with a gluten allergy and a big chip on his shoulder to win office.

Of course you also have to win. Kind of tough in MA to run as a non-dem though.

Every day it becomes more clear that everything the GOP ever claimed to stand for was bullshit ... except tax cuts for the wealthy.
