Bad night to be an old white Republican man with a terrible understanding of science and rape: both Richard "Rape Pregnancies Are God's Gifts" Mourdock and Todd "Legitimate Rape" Akin lost their races; Mourdock was defeated by Joe Donnelly in the Indiana Senate race, and Claire McCaskill easily beat Akin to retain her Missouri Senate spot.

Elsewhere: Tammy Baldwin defeated Tommy Thompson in the Wisconsin Senate race, making Baldwin the first openly gay member of the U.S. Senate. And Elizabeth Warren ousted Scott Brown from his Massachusetts Senate seat, proving once and for all that you should never hire campaign staffers prone to "Indian War Whoops."
