All in all, the 2011 off-year election proves to be a tough night for the conservative revolution. (4:45)

>> Jon: WELCOME BACK.

[ LAUGHTER ]

IT ALL ENDED SO SUDDENLY.

AS YOU RECALL, IT WAS JUST A

YEAR AGO THAT THE REPUBLICAN

PARTY CRUISED TO A MASSIVE MID

TERM ELECTION VICTORY.

ONCE AND FOR ALL TAKING AMERICA

BACK FROM THE DEMOCRATS WHO HAD

THEMSELVES TAKEN IT BACK TWO

JUST YEARS EARLIER.

CONSERVATIVES IN THE HIZZIE AND

TO A LESSER QUITE FILIBUSTER-Y

EXTENT THEOnYESTERDAY'S OFF YEAR ELECTIO

WAS THE FIRST CHANCE FOR VOTERS

TO SEW THEIR APPROVAL FOR THE

NEW REPUBLICAN AGENDA.

WE'LL CHECK IN.

>> OHIO VOTER BUSINESS A NEARLY

2-1 MARGIN REPEALED A NEW LAW

RESTRICTING THE COLLECTIVE

BARGAINING RIGHTS OF STATE AND

LOCAL UNIONS.

>> IT'S A HUGE DEFEAT FOR THE

REPUBLICAN GOVERNOR AND HUGE

VICTORY FOR ORGANIZED LABOR.

>> Jon: WOW, A HUGE VICTORY

FOR ORGANIZED LABOR.

THIS IS WHAT IT'S COME TO THEM

FOR, A HUGE VICTORY MEANS UNIONS

ARE ALLOWED TO CONTINUE TO

EXIST.

THIS IS THE BIGGEST NIGHT SINCE

1992'S WE DON'T HAVE TO USE A

SICK DAY TO CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS

VICTORY.

[ LAUGHTER ]

IN FACT, LAST NIGHT'S LOSS SO

HUMILIATING FOR OHIO GOVERNOR

THAT FOX NEWS DECLARED HIM A

DEMOCRAT.

THAT'S RIGHT.

THEY -- THAT'S HOW BAD IT WAS.

NO, NO NEW YORK, NO.

NOT A GOVERNOR, NOT A FRIEND, A

DEMOCRAT.

GO HOME AND GET YOUR (bleep)

ON.

ALL RIGHT.

MOVING ON TO MISSISSIPPI A STATE

SO RED EVEN THE ART HOUSE MOVIE

THEY'RE AT THES PLAY LARRY THE

CABLE GUY SPECIALS.

YESTERDAY MISSISSIPPI VOTERS

WERE CONSIDERING A STATE

AMENDMENT THAT WOULD HAVE

DEFINED EMBRYOS AS PEOPLE FROM

THE MOMENT OF THEIR

FERTILIZATION, SINGLE CELL

BLASTOLA WITH ALL RIGHTS.

>> PERSONHOOD INITIATIVE WOULD

HAVE DECLARED LIFE BEGIN AS THE

CONCEPTION.

>> Jon: WOW APPARENTLY THEY

OPPOSE ABORTION WITHOUT

BELIEVING THAT A WOMAN WHO USES

AN IUD IS A SERIAL KILLER.

SCREENPLAY IDEA.

IUD'S TURN NORMAL WOMEN INTO

MASS MURDERERS.

THE KILLER INSIDE ME?

NO, NO.

FETAL DESTINATION?

NO NO.

THE UNBORN ULTIMATE MATUM.

WAIT, WAIT.

TOMB RAIDER -- WE'LL RIGHT --

[ LAUGHTER ]

HOW BAD IS IT WHEN THE CAMERA

MAN GOES (bleep) THIS I'M OUT

OF HERE.

[ LAUGHTER ]

I'M SORRY FRANCO.

ALL RIGHT.

HOW ABOUT ARIZONA?

GROUND ZERO FOR A NATIONAL WAVE

OF HARSH NEW ANTIIMMIGRATION

LAWS.

A STATE SO RED IT THINKS IT'S

OWN NAME IS A LITTLE TOO

MEXICAN.

WHAT HAPPENED THERE?

>> ARIZONA VOTERS RECALLED THE

REPUBLICAN STATE SENATOR RUSSELL

PIERCE.

HE SPONSORED THE STATE'S STRICT

IMMIGRATION LAW REQUIRING POLICE

TO CHECK THE IMMIGRATION STATUS

OF ANYONE THEY STOPPED.

>> IRONICALLY PIERCE WAS BEATEN

SO BADLY IN THIS ELECTION THAT

HE CRACKED OPEN AND CANDY

SPILLED OUT.

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

ALL IN ALL --

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

YEAH, YEAH.

NOW YOU LOVE ME AGAIN.

[ LAUGHTER ]

ALL IN ALL A TOUGH NIGHT FOR THE

CONSERVATIVE REVOLUTION.

THERE MUST BE A SIMPLE

EXPLAINATION.

TO THE NARRATIVE MACHINE.

>> DID REPUBLICANS OVERREACH?

>> REACH TOO FAR BY THE G.O.P.

>> IT WAS ABOUT OVERREACHING.

>> Jon: ARE YOU AWARE OF THEIR

PLATFORM.

>> WE'RE GOING TO TAKE AIM ON

LAW ENFORCEMENT AND PUT THEM ON

THE BAD GUY.

ILLEGAL IS NOT A RACE.

IT'S A CRIME.

>> WE BELIEVE THAT LIFE BEGIN AS

THE CONCEPTION AND AT THE MOMENT

OF CONCEPTION EVERY INDIVIDUAL

IS ENTITLED TO THE FREEDOMS

UNDER THE DECORATION OF

INDEPENDENCE AND THE 14th

AMENDMENT OF THE CONSTITUTION.

>> I DON'T FAVOR THE RIGHT TO

STRIKE OF ANY PUBLIC EMPLOYEE.

THEY'VE GOT GOOD JOBS, HIGH PAY,

GREAT RETIREMENT.

WHAT ARE THEY THEY STRIKING FOR.

>> Jon: THE PROBLEM THEY

DIDN'T TRY TO OVERREACH.

THEY TRIED TO DO EXACTLY WHAT

THEY SAID THEY WERE GOING TO DO.

IT WOULD BE LIKE DRINKING RED
