Hello, West Coast … Bring It Home

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 beats Brown for Senate seat in Massachusetts

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.

Wisconsin Elects Country’s First Openly Gay Senator, Tammy Baldwin

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!

Peggy Noonan on fox ponders the big GOP dilemma: “What happened here if indeed what appears to be happening is so”

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.

    Just in from Crazytown — Allen West, Steve King, Michele Bachmann all with narrow leads. #election2012, #clownshoes

  5. Fannie says:

    Did you hear that mutherfucker speech by Akin………..

  6. NW Luna says:

    OT, but good news:

    A new storm that threatened to complicate Hurricane Sandy cleanup efforts on Wednesday now looks like it will be weaker than expected.

  7. Fannie says:

    This one is for Elizabeth Warren

    Tim Kaine got it………..

  8. ANonOMouse says:

    Just did the math. Obama can win without taking FL, NC, VA or OH. All he has to do is win the states west of the Mississippi River, IA, CO, NV, CA, WA, OR & HI. that gets him to 271

  9. pdgrey says:

    Report: Obama Likely To Win VA
    jonward11 @ jonward11 : wow RT @LarrySabato: Obama now likely to win VA. Just looked at outstanding pcts.

  10. ANonOMouse says:


  11. ANonOMouse says:

    Obama is POTUS

  12. Fannie says:

    44th President of United States………..Ohio

  13. pdgrey says:

    Alan West, sexy letter writer (allegedly!), is currently 50-50 in his race against Democrat Patrick Murphy.

  14. mablue2 says:


    I’m waiting for the unskewed result!

  15. NW Luna says:

    Claire McCaskill said “Mom, this one’s for you!” in her victory speech.

  16. ANonOMouse says:

    Nate Silver has been vindicated

  17. NW Luna says:

    Romney, “Those People” have spoken.

  18. ANonOMouse says:

    And I’m feelin Good!

  19. NW Luna says:

    Tammy Duckworth wins too. The Tammys win!

  20. Drudge still hasn’t called it.

  21. mablue2 says:

    I have an image of Dick Morris’ projection. I have to find a way to upload it.

  22. NW Luna says:

    Damn, WA state “marriage for all” is going down. But there’s hope — they haven’t counted King Co, with its huge share of votes.

    Meanwhile, the pot legalization is winning — even in some of the throwback strongholds that hate marriage equality. Go figure.

    We will probably wait days for the final results, since the whole state is vote-by-mail, postmark by today.

  23. ecocatwoman says:

    The Almighty Trump saying the election is a sham. No little Donnie, you are the sham.

  24. roofingbird says:

    Who was it that was saying the counting of the provisional ballots would START in 17 days?

  25. ecocatwoman says:

    Romney campaign is NOT conceding Ohio. Per Rachel, Romney campaign is saying this is not over!

  26. peggysue22 says:

    Karl Rove is stroking out on Fox News, claiming it’s ‘premature’ to announce an Obama victory. The Fox number crunchers and bosses have said: It’s over. This alone is a beautiful moment–seeing Rove squirm and twist.

    So glad to see Senator-elect Warren give her speech. I think there are a lot of ‘pundits’ who will owe Nate Silver an apology tomorrow morning.

    The Fox people are truly stunned. Karl Rove is still squealing, chalk board in hand. He just cannot believe they lost Ohio.

  27. NW Luna says:

    Oooh. WA State just updated. Marriage equality now ahead!

    Charter schools winning by less than 1%. Hope that will change.

  28. Fannie says:

    GET OVER IT ROMNEY – it’s over, it ain’t skin tight.

  29. ANonOMouse says:

    Romney can complain all he likes…….Obama doesn’t need OH or FL or VA. He can win with CO and NV………It’s over Mitt, learn to accept defeat.

  30. ANonOMouse says:

    Heidi Heitkamp is barely ahead in ND, by 2%. Go Heidi
