Hello, West Coast … Bring It HomePosted: November 6, 2012
Howard Fineman is reporting that the Romney campaign is sequestered and not returning any one’s phone calls. Radio Silence for 45-60 minutes. Heh Heh.
So much good news to report that it’s hard to keep up with it.
Warren, a Harvard University law professor and former Obama administration financial consumer advocate, beat the freshman senator who was seeking a full term to the seat he won two years after the death of Democratic Senator Ted Kennedy. Brown, the first GOP senator from deep blue Massachusetts in decades, billed himself as an independent who voted for the needs of Massachusetts not the demands of either party.
The Warren-Brown race was one of the costliest and nastiest campaigns this cycle. It was marked by Brown’s repeated accusations that Warren claimed to be a minority in order to advance her career. She denied that was her motive for listing her ancestry as Native American saying she was told about her heritage by her family.
Baldwin is a progressive solid enough to have voted against authorizing the Iraq War and against a pro-Patriot Act resolution masquerading as pro-veteran. She wrote the part of the Affordable Care Act that lets adults stay on their parents’ health care coverage until they’re 26. Her sexual orientation wasn’t an issue during the campaign, but Baldwin isn’t averse to talking about it. “If you are not in the room, the conversation is about you,” she told The Guardian this week. “If you are in the room, the conversation is with you. We never had an openly LGBT member of the U.S. Senate, and even though there are strong pro-equality allies who serve there, it has always been a conversation about a group of people. So this changes everything.”
Meanwhile, FOX pundits are flummoxed!

The Sad Faces of Fox News on Election Night
Todd Akin is giving his concession speech!! Rape victims around the country feel a sense of vindication.
Romney’s path is so narrow right now that we’ve got to look for his path with a microscope.
President Obama rolled up projected victories in Wisconsin, New Hampshire and Pennsylvania Tuesday night as Republican Mitt Romney’s path to 270 electoral votes narrowed significantly.
Projected victories in swing state Wisconsin and Pennsylvania — where Romney had made a bid to win in the campaign’s final days — were greeted with cheers at Obama’s campaign party in Chicago, while the atmosphere at Romney’s camp in Boston was more subdued.
As the evening went on, Obama aides seemed to gain more confidence. When Pennsylvania was called, one aide–peering at the results, danced and clapped.
“Boom!” another aide said, responding to the results.
BOOM! Indeed! and with the calling of Minnesota for Obama .. Axelrove keeps his ‘stach.
