AdLib On November - 2 - 2010

It’s finally here, Election Day 2010, the day when informed citizens vote for candidates that represent their interests while others vote Republican.

Will the pundits and the publicized meme that Dems won’t turn out and lose big be correct or might tonight have a few positive surprises in store for the Dems?

Please join us for Election Day 2010 here at The Planet. There are two ways that you can participate, by sharing your Election Day thoughts, experiences and reactions posting on this thread AND by joining our Election Day Live Chat, open all day. To chat live with your fellow members, you can use the chat box in the sidebar on any page or go to the Live Events page where you can chat while watching live newscasts (newscasts begin in the evening). We will add live news video from different sources on this post and on the Live Events page as they become available.

And of course…don’t forget to vote!

      Khirad I got this in my mail from Gabby’s Campaign.

      Well, this is a close election -- as we knew it would be. We have been in the lead since the polls closed, and what we are waiting for now are thousands of early ballots that were walked into those polls on Election Day.

      We are optimistic that our roughly 2,500-vote lead will hold and we will win. It has already held strong through returns from Marana, Cochise County and Saddlebrooke. And we won the early ballots by over 10,000 votes.

      We will learn more over the next day or two and will keep you updated.

    It’s not my fault!! Really Mom, it was those other guys!

    First of all, what the hell was Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild doing on an MSNBC panel today bashing Obama (again)? Yes, like she knows what “middle America” is thinking. :roll:

    Secondly, Hamsher -- just go away -- I really don’t care what you have to say.

    Thirdly, SE Cupp really needs to stop being such a RW tool when she speaks. It’s a total turnoff. 😛

    Hamster on the telly: They lost because they weren’t progressive enough.”
    Do I sound like a broken record? Maybe I should write a C&P for this:
    look at the record number of filibusters, secret holds, no votes on the by the R’s!!! From the very moment he was elected.

  7. PepeLepew says:

    Well, that pretty much went as expected.

    OK, “undecideds,” have fun watching the Republicans try to actually legislate.

    • bitohistory says:

      60% of “independents” voted for Obama in 2008. 60% of “independents” voted Republican in 2010. Go figure.

      • Khirad says:

        We need a Moderately Fickle Party in this country.

        I’m kinda tired of them as wishy-washy kingmakers.

        (mostly kidding, partly not)

        • bitohistory says:

          I don’t know what I want but I want more of something if it isn’t exactly like the other thing or maybe it should be different. Now, damn-it, and right now, I think.

    Two of twelve House races not called are right here.

    Giffords has slim lead; Grijalva in a tight race

    Uggggh…

    Oh thank god, I think they’ve got it.

    http://www1.kvoa.com/pages/november-2010-general-election-results/

    The Libertarian helped us out big time. Thanks Libertarians!

    Murray leads Rossi on strong King County vote
    http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/localnews/2013329525_elexsenate03m.html

    But, this could last much longer. Rick Larsen (up on the Canadian border above Seattle), is barely hanging on. My old district lost, but not as big as I’d though it would.

    Buck, Bennet deadlocked in Senate race
    http://www.denverpost.com/election2010/ci_16502977

    Fortunately, those to be counted are mainly from Denver and Boulder.

    http://www.oregonlive.com/politics/index.ssf/2010/11/oregon_governor_election_resul.html

    Oregonian gubernatorial race shows most votes left to be counted in that tight race are from Multnomah County. Translation for you guys: that’s Portland. Also, Oregon’s 5th stayed Democratic (that’s around Salem to the coast), a seat leaning Republican in the polls.

    Looks like Murkowski will pull this one through.

    http://www.adn.com/2010/11/02/1532963/senate-drama-could-just-be-beginning.html

    And, though I never root for Republicans, this being Alaska, and this being a stab through the heart of Palin, I must admit I’m pulling for her in an enemy of my enemy sort of way. -- Did y’all know Miller supporters registered themselves as write-in candidates to make the list of write-in candidates four pages long?

    Also, statewide we’ve done away with Affirmative Action, pre-empted card check and are opting out of HCR! Yay, and Phoenix is about to get even whackier.

    Bito, Terri Proud got the most votes! My god, how stupid are people? She should be let nowhere near either a stapler or sharp implements of any kind, let alone governance! I think Vic can keep her occupied by bringing a shiny cat toy to legislative sessions to prevent her from doing too much damage, hopefully.

    If “she is you” -- then a majority of District 26 voters are “a little slow” to put it kindly. She makes Christine O’Donnell look like a brain surgeon. Hell, she almost makes Jesse Kelly look smart. Almost.

    Message for bito.

    I’m one of those “guests” because I can’t find my pass for the Chat, the neighbour’s dog ate it. :(

  10. Kalima says:

    Repubs win marjority in the House. Good Lord, Speaker Boehner?

  11. Kalima says:

    NY State win for Gillibrand and creepy Paladino will lose the governors race.

    Prediction.
    O’Donnell will lose in Delaware. Yay!!

  12. Kalima says:

    Ok, for whatever reason I can’t join Chat.

    Latest.

    R. seats so far.

    Senate:7

    House: 35

  13. Kalima says:

    Yay for W. Virginia!! Win for Joe Manchin predicted.

    Grayson to lose in Florida, how sad.

  14. AdLib says:

    How do you know that a Progressive is a masochist?

    They’re watching the news before election results come in.

    Really, they have no news to report (except who isn’t reporting news, i.e. Breitbart) so it’s a parade of talking heads talking about totally irrelevant opinions because the actual results will come in today.

    Then, since no one doubts the Repubs will have a lot of pickups, tomorrow will be a whole day of these same talking heads making up theories and predictions.

    Man, was Jon Stewart right in his speech or what?!
