I can see what you are talking about.

Todd Akin giving his (2.00 / 9)
concession speech.

Because, you know, when a candidate is a legitimate fucktard, the electorate has a way of shutting that whole thing down.

Come to me in my dreams, and then
By day I shall be well again!
For so the night will more than pay
The hopeless longing of the day.

Amazing what passes for knowledge on cable news. (2.00 / 5)
two minutes ago FOX says the Romney camp tells them they expect FLA to be within 10,000 votes...

After the break "You just head Florida could be within 10,000"

...

No we didn't. We heard that one campaign headquarters said that. That isn't knowledge.

Although I am generally opposed to gloating (2.00 / 6)
This one goes out to the Romney campaign from all the way down under:



The future is unwritten


GOP may yet lose Senate seats. (2.00 / 5)
The dialog is bending towards GOP reform. Even on FOX it has been mentioned without anyone throwing a microphone.

This has not worked. May have to go back to the forge and start over again.

CNN projects Obama Win. Well done guys (2.00 / 9)
It's been a wild ride since we met four years ago - tough times beyond anything we could imagine. But you kept the course, through the hardest storms. And I think Obama, though buffeted by gales and tempests, found a way through

You've re established America's good name for probity, reliability and despite its fractious disputes, ultimate sanity. The world has been watching you, needs you, and (bizarrely) 80 per cent of British conservatives would vote for Obama.

So the world thanks you. I'm speaking on their behalf.

Things can only get better

Woo F*cking Hoo! (2.00 / 9)
We made it, my friends, we made it.  God bless you all.

But what will become of our Judeo-Christian values (2.00 / 9)
like abandoning the poor and the sick to their own responsibility, denigrating the pursuit of knowledge, and of viewing rape as a way in which women victimize others?

How do these traditional family values people (2.00 / 6)
behave like this and then teach their kids to share, to lose graciously, and to refrain from spreading slanderous rumors (or bearing false witness)about others?

I daresay (2.00 / 3)
they don't.

This will not stand! (2.00 / 5)
I demand a recount. 332 is not a mandate! More like a womandate. Not enough establishment white men per Bill O'Reilly.

Oh well, tomorrow is another day. Pres. Obama declared it National Schadenfreude Day. Perhaps the brewskis and popcorn (Redenbachers finest) will have cleared my system by then.

There was only one joker in L.A. sensitive enough to wear that scent...and I had to find out who he was!

VA now down to 13,000 votes (2.00 / 6)

Everything will fail, because the GOP will never bend. Calls Romney a "Northeast Liberal"

Other conservative pundits claiming that a much more conservative candidate is the key.

Moar! Moar! Not crazy enough by half, moar crazy is key!

Listening to Karl Rove (2.00 / 6)
Desperately spinning the uncounted-so-far Ohio votes as surely surely going to tip it in Romney's favor.

I laugh.

I shout HA! at the TV.

I'm gonna go get me that split of champagne that's been sitting in the fridge....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...............

Now there's some piss-faced older white guy maundering about how Romney was an Eastern liberal and that's why he lost and Obama's a far leftist and has no mandate and.... Ah, you get the picture.

I GLOAT.

If it were done when 'tis done, then 'twere well it were done subjunctively.

I hate writing lists of names. I can't help missing some.

Started a massive cross-sector working group this week. Sent the first message, went back and sent a second after finding that I left out half the best people (and my best friends, and people I work with). Sent the third when I realized I had left out some of the people actually involved in setting it up.

It's me, not you.  I have mental constipation.

What if Romney just came out and claimed that he won? (2.00 / 7)
I mean, he lies about everything else.  What if he just comes out and gives a victory speech, starts building a fake cabinet, etc.?

Heh (2.00 / 7)
I could believe he might try.  Truly surrealistic campaign.

[ Parent ]
Ohio is now irrelevant (2.00 / 9)
Colorado and Nevada have been called.  Obama has 272 without Ohio.

Now they are just being sore losers.

Trump is tweeting that Obama lost the popular vote by a lot (which he cannot know) and is calling on people to march on Washington as our Democracy is a sham and a travesty.
