Tea baggers bagged

The results from yesterday’s election show the House of Representatives is still controlled by the GOP, but one of its more odious members is gone and another is close to heading to the exit sign.

In Illinois, Tammy Duckworth, the Iraq War veteran who lost her legs in combat, beat Joe Walsh, the child-support dodging tea bagger who complained that all Tammy Duckworth ever talked about was losing her legs in combat in Iraq.

Meanwhile, in Florida, Allen West, who claims there are 57 card-carrying members of the Communist Party among the House Democrats (OK, he really said 81, but it made me think of “The Manchurian Candidate”), is trailing Democrat Patrick Murphy by less than 3,000 votes, with absentee ballots from mostly Democratic precincts still to be counted.
