    So long as we're scraping the bottom of the barrel for silver linings...

    Even though Tony Knowles lost to Lisa Murkowski, heralding another 24 years of GOP control of Alaska's U.S. Senate seats...

    ...A ballot initiative driven by Dem legislators to ban future Senate appointments by governors passed.

    More to the point, the Alaska legislature, while still dominated by the GOP, saw a net gain of 1 Dem seat. (Three races are still within 100 votes; absentee ballots could erase the Dem gain, change it to +1 GOP, or change to +3 Dem.)
