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.
Women voters have a way of shutting down those idiots.
LOL!!! It’s those hormone secretions.
They’ve called Virginia Senate Race for Tim Kaine on NBC
Oh! I wish I’d said that! That’s a bumper magnet right there!
Is Scotty actually drunk?
Urgh….Just checked our state’s election website results page.
Charles P. Pierce @ESQPolitics
Just in from Crazytown — Allen West, Steve King, Michele Bachmann all with narrow leads. #election2012, #clownshoes
Good God I have be trying to find out about those ass holes
Rick Klein @rickklein
Paul Ryan won reelection to his House seat tonight, @jparkABC report. #YourVote
Oh, did Mr. I’m So Innocent I’ll Kill Medicare Ryan think he might lose the Federal race? You won’t get out of your home state in the future, Mr. Vice-Vulture.
Did you hear that mutherfucker speech by Akin………..
Yeah, he’s sick with religious fanaticism … it’s a mental health issues, I swear.
Yeah, what an ungracious asshole. He can take his religious crapola and shove it.
No. Maybe it’s best I haven’t
OT, but good news:
This one is for Elizabeth Warren
Tim Kaine got it………..
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
See Dak, I can cypher too! 🙂
Here’s some great math!!!
Aretha Frison @ReRe_Red
CBS: There will be a record number of women in the U.S. Senate. #Election2012 #kalb5
Now that’s some math!!!!!!! 🙂
CNN projects Obama to win Iowa. Obama HQ in Chicago starting to celebrate
Dan Froomkin @froomkin
Denver Post projects Obama winner in Colorado: http://www.denverpost.com/ci_21941964/race-president-71-active-colorado-voters-have-cast …
Report: Obama Likely To Win VA
jonward11 @ jonward11 : wow RT @LarrySabato: Obama now likely to win VA. Just looked at outstanding pcts.
and NBC just called it for OBAMA
Oh geez, I am so relieved!
Obama is POTUS
YES!!!! So relieved.
44th President of United States………..Ohio
Alan West, sexy letter writer (allegedly!), is currently 50-50 in his race against Democrat Patrick Murphy.
I’m waiting for the unskewed result!
you cannot win an election attacking women, blacks, Hispanics, college students, retired people, union workers, teachers, firefighters, civil servants and most of the population
True That!!! People POWER
Fucking priceless! OBAMA!!!!!
I fucking love you sky dancers…………………
I was just writing this statement in my morning post Fannie!
Word! @ Fannie
Claire McCaskill said “Mom, this one’s for you!” in her victory speech.
Nate Silver has been vindicated
Romney, “Those People” have spoken.
LOL!!! Yeah, all us heathens have spoken and we said, “get the fuck out of town, mitt and take ann with ya”
But leave Seamus with us. We’ll take care of him. We take care of our own.
Fox news is saying that Romney is pissed off with them for calling it for Obama!
Turd blossom is saying Ohio still is not for Obama!
He can cry me a river!!!
Rove talked to Husted & saying there is only 900 votes difference between Obama & Romney. I smell a contested verdict coming fast.
He is such an asshole!
The big cities haven’t been counted completely yet. There are still folks on the east coast trying to vote.
LOL!! Those people have spoken indeed!
and told Mitt to go home and ride your car elevator!
And I’m feelin Good!
Tammy Duckworth wins too. The Tammys win!
She’s quite a woman. A real shero
Drudge still hasn’t called it.
That’s why drudge operates a whackadoodle blog.
I have an image of Dick Morris’ projection. I have to find a way to upload it.
We don’t want to see no Dick! 🙂
Some one needs to go check for Pat … I think she’s shed all of her clothes and running naked in the streets!!!!
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.
The Almighty Trump saying the election is a sham. No little Donnie, you are the sham.
No, Sham is what’s on top of his head
Yes – Sham wow.
lol! He is such a pathetic person.
I predict the Republicans will wipe out the Xanax supply over the next few days.
Who was it that was saying the counting of the provisional ballots would START in 17 days?
Everyone has said that by law Ohio cannot count provisional ballots until Nov 17th.
Thanks for clarifying.
Romney campaign is NOT conceding Ohio. Per Rachel, Romney campaign is saying this is not over!
Damn I wish Kerry had fought for a recount in 2004.
So there is this:
One, Robert Fitrakis, filed suit in OH today over a voting booth software patch.
Between this, Sandy, and provisional and absentee ballots, it seems fair to make sure votes are properly counted, rather that letting the media just tell us who won.
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.
Oooh. WA State just updated. Marriage equality now ahead!
Charter schools winning by less than 1%. Hope that will change.
GET OVER IT ROMNEY – it’s over, it ain’t skin tight.
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.
Heidi Heitkamp is barely ahead in ND, by 2%. Go Heidi
