The Party Of 'Old' 'White' 'Men'

On Election Night, fresh-faced Republican Elise Stefanik became the youngest woman ever elected to Congress. She will represent New York's 21st congressional district.

She's 30-years-old.

The voters of Utah's 4th congressional district elected Republican Mia Love to The U.S. House of Representatives. She is a Mormon Haitian. If that's not diverse enough for you, I don't know what is.

Joni Ernst cheerfully brushed off sexist attacks, and became Iowa's first female Senator. Two days after winning the seat, she went back on duty for The Army National Guard.

My favorite meme from Election Night featured these three terrific candidates. Democrats like to joke that The GOP is a party of 'old', 'white', 'men'. After Election Night, something tells me that Democrats don't have much to laugh about anymore.
