Good news from the US

At the time of writing, the Democrats have definitely won the house and look likely to win the Senate as well. Divided government is probably pretty good news for libertarians. Bush is unlikely to take as kindly to Democratic pork as he did to Republican pork.

Also, Rick "The pursuit of happiness is harming America" Santorum has been unceremoniously dumped from office.

There’s also this from Ramesh Ponnuru, certainly no libertarian:

If Sodrel loses in Indiana, as looks likely, it may be because a libertarian candidate took votes from him. The same thing happened to keep Slade Gorton from winning re-election to the Senate and to keep Jon Ensign from beating Harry Reid. So far, losing because of libertarians hasn’t caused Republicans to move toward the libertarians ideologically. But maybe things will change this time.
