True Tea Party winner: Republican Mike Lee's win over Sam Granato in the Utah Senate race can't be explained away as a blind anti-Obama wave. Lee defeated Republican incumbent Bob Bennett in the primary.

Good for Lee in seeing it through.
Interesting candidates fail; essential uninterestingness of politics preserved:
- Krystall Ball sucks the red dildo in Virginia's first district House race. Republican Rob Wittman comes through for all homeowners affected by Chinese drywall.
- She's you, which means you're a loser: Christine O'Donnell exorcised by Chris Coons in Delaware Senate race.
- Anti-homosexualist Carl Paladino gets cornholed by Andrew Cuomo in race for governor of New York.

They're going to be able to redistrict these into permanent majorities in some case.
