Kentucky Dems went 3-1 today

Everyone said it couldn't be done, but guess what?

With results of all 4 Kentucky special elections in, the Democrats won 3, losing only the district that was about a zillion percent Republican to begin with. This boosts the Democrats to a 53 to 47 advantage in the House.

Brings a whole new meaning to Mitt Romney's 47%!

All the bluster by the Kentucky GOP over the past 4 months about their looming takeover of the South's only Democratic legislative chamber was all for naught. What's most amazing is that the Democrats didn't just keep the House today, but actually made a net gain! That's the type of thing we're always told can't be done in a rural state.

Maybe - just maybe - the truth is finally starting to sink in.

In the immortal words of Principal Skinner, who's ha-hawing now?
