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?

Colorado election results: Sen. Michael Bennet defeats Ken Buck in Colorado Senate race
Now, come on King County in Washington! Please come through.
Khirad I got this in my mail from Gabby’s Campaign.
exit poll from yesterday:
It’s not my fault!! Really Mom, it was those other guys!
O’Donnell: It’s The GOP’s Fault I Lost
She truly is a student of the Palin.
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. 🙄
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.
I call jinxies.
Saw that, Khirad, but I didn’t put her picture up! 😆
Well, that pretty much went as expected.
OK, “undecideds,” have fun watching the Republicans try to actually legislate.
60% of “independents” voted for Obama in 2008. 60% of “independents” voted Republican in 2010. Go figure.
We need a Moderately Fickle Party in this country.
I’m kinda tired of them as wishy-washy kingmakers.
(mostly kidding, partly not)
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
Oh thank god, I think they’ve got it.
The Libertarian helped us out big time. Thanks Libertarians!
Murray leads Rossi on strong King County vote
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
Fortunately, those to be counted are mainly from Denver and Boulder.
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.
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.
That Alaska is a mess.
Are you referring to the election, or just making a general observation? 😉
Khirad, they still haven’t called Gabby’s or Raul’s races.
Not officially, no. But all precincts have reported except for one in Pima – 99.72%.
I’m getting nervous they haven’t called either of them, as they could go to recount. I’m not celebrating early, but, as it stands… …I’m trying to stay positive, is what I’m trying to say…
Nearly 50,000 county votes outstanding
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. 🙁
That’s too bad, Kalima. Wonder why that is? You have been over here all by your lonesome.
Yep! Maybe I forgot to renew my license? *sniff*
Repubs win marjority in the House. Good Lord, Speaker Boehner?
NY State win for Gillibrand and creepy Paladino will lose the governors race.
O’Donnell will lose in Delaware. Yay!!
Ok, for whatever reason I can’t join Chat.
R. seats so far.
Yay for W. Virginia!! Win for Joe Manchin predicted.
Grayson to lose in Florida, how sad.
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?!
4:25: ABC finally and completely boots Breitbart from election coverage tonight. Surprise: Will not be replaced by Michael Savage
That is good news though as far as I’m concerned, for even trying to foist him on the public, ABC remains bad News.
Hey Bit’o et al!
I’ve been a Headless Mike the Chicken of late – not knowing where I’m “headed” next. The Blov and I worked phone banks. Now I feel like crawling under the bed and hiding for 2-3 days.
I still think White will carry the metro areas of Texas. We’ll see.
I’ll peep in now and then. No TV – only Little Mosque on the Prarie or Malcolm in the Middle tonight. Tomorrow I awaken as a goose, in a brand new world.
I’ll write you an email soon, Bito. Time is a short commodity at present. did you get the last one w/ photos of Baby Girl? I had read of the server crash, so I can resend to you if needed. -AB
Hey AB, Thanks for the pics, I should have written you back sooner. What a cutie!!
It would be such a giggle if White won!! How long can Perry stay in office? Forever?
Take care, girl.
It’s all those letters we wrote Bito and the dreaded boycott!
