Republicans hold on in Wisconsin
As you'll have likely heard, Republicans held on to enough state Senate seats to retain control of that chamber, bad news for the liberal and union activists who aimed to roll back Republican Governor Scott Walker's attack on collective bargaining. Sometimes satire is the best solace for bad news.
