Election Night Live Blogging
9:30 PM or so...
I gotta crash … it's early yet, but I have to get up super mega-early.
Just a few things …
- It looks like Joe Lieberman is holding on in Connecticut. Good. Let's hope it's a message to the Democrats. This far-left crap isn't working. Besides, I like Joe Lieberman and I'm glad to see that twisting the knife into his back has backfired on the Democrats in Connecticut.
- If the projections on Fox News turn out to be accurate, I want to extend my sympathy to my friends in Pennsylvania. You're losing a damn good man in the Senate … but he's also young and he's too tough to wilt and die. He'll be back somehow, someday.
- Fox News, by the way, is making me CRAZY! I hate it when they do the early projections, for one thing. For another, the crawl along the bottom keeps changing. One minute they're saying that it's 1% of the precincts in Virginia reporting … the next minute it's 4% … then, the next minute, it's 1%. WTF?
- Speaking of Fox News, Bill Krystol gave a succinct and perfect explanation of why George Allen is struggling so badly in a Senate race that should have been a cake-walk. He's run a bad campaign. He's campaigned with personal attacks against Jim Webb instead of focusing on the issues and the ideology. It's been painful to watch the Allen campaign struggle this way. As I prepare to hit the sack, it's still neck-n-neck. I have no idea who'll be my Senator when I wake up early in the morning.
- The very sight of Charles Schumer makes me want to punch him.
- Did you know that Ted Kennedy and Robert Byrd were up for reelection this year? Did you care? Me neither.
- Howard Dean looked so restrained talking to Chris Wallace! Hillary has him on a short leash. I got the feeling that there were electrodes taped to his inner thigh ... one slightly moonbat phrase and Howard would have gotten a good jolt from the junior Senator from New York.
- I love Michelle Malkin ... but she just isn't that hot when you actually see her on TV.
- Corker looks solid, that's good. The other race I'm following, Michael Steele, is doing well early on. With one or two percent reporting in Maryland, Steele is actually leading. Of course, Fox is STILL calling the race for Cardin based on the polls, which pisses me off and has Wendy yelling at the TV.
Really, I gotta crash.
Dude, for political junkies like me, the first Tuesday in November is the Super Bowl … especially for political junkies who don't care about sports. When it's a Presidential race it's the Super Bowl and the World Series rolled into one. WHEEEEEEEE!

Well, time to lick our wounds, figure out what went wrong, fix it, then come back to kick butt in '08.
You are right. We in PA have indeed lost a powerful pro-life Catholic. Very sad. May God use it for good in aay that only He can.Post a Comment
