Drunk Blogging the Election

For those of you on Facebook, please click through for updates.
  • 9:00 PM:  I just turned on the TV, and I am alternating between MSNBC and CNN.
  • 9:02 PM: I just hard that Evan Bayh lost his race for the Senate.  Good.  I hate that smarmy entitled asshole.  He is the archetype of a preening corrupt conservative Democrat.  Joe Lieberman with a bit more charm.  Take a drink in celebration.
  • 9:07 PM: CNN is doing a county by county breakdown.  I love it on the screen or on paper, but on the TV, not so much.
  • 9:09 PM: On MSNBC, Rachel Maddow is unbelievably chipper.  She really loves this stuff.
  • 9:15 PM: Reports that Tammy Duckworth has beaten Mark Kirk.  Take a sip.
  • 9:21 PM: Trump is definitely outperforming polls.  Take a shot.
  • 9:30 PM: Florida is too close to call.  Not again!  Take a shot. 
  • 9:35 PM:  My cat, Meatball, is demanding my attention.  It's hard to focus on politics when a cat is demanding your attention, particularly when I am already a little bit toasted.
  • 9:41 PM: The crawl on MSNBC says that Fl, PA, OH, GA. MI. NC. VA. MN. NH, ME.  This is going to be a long evening.  Take a sip.
  • 9:50 PM: A picture for your perusal.
  • 9:55 PM: I hate listening to listening to Chris "Tweety" Matthews.
  • 10:16 PM: Rubio beat Murphy.  Not a surprise.  You cannot beat an incumbent, even an incumbent nothing like Rubio, with a nothing like former Republican trust fund baby Patrick Murphy..
  • 10:20: Trump wins Ohio.
    • We are  completely f%$#ed.  Take a drink.
  • 10:24 PM: This is as close as it is because the status quo is 
  • 10:26 PM: MSNBC just called Virginia for Hillary Clinton. 
  • 10:33 PM: I hate Steve Schmidt on MSNBC, but I hate everyone on CNN more.
  • 10:36 PM: I should note that the entire Democrat Party establishment really needs to be fired.  ……… Out of a cannon, into the Sun.
  • 10:39 PM: If you are Jewish, here is the link for aliyah, if you want to trade Netanyahu for Trump.
  • 10:41 PM:  Dow Jones futures are down by something like 600 points, and the Mexican Peso is in freefall.  People are panicking, which means that people with level heads are doing them like a drunk sorority girl.
  • 11:03 PM: Russ Feingold was defeated by the wingnut Ron Johnson. A truly decent man lost to a walking piece of sh%$.  Take a shot.  I am bumming. 
  • 11:05 PM:  Sh%$.  The Daily Show is on.  Changing Channel. 
  • 11:15 PM: Meh. On today's Daily Show.
  • 11:30 PM: Trump is called to win Florida and Utah.  I am drunk and depressed, and I think that Donald Trump will be President-elect in the morning.  I am done for the evening.

    Those of our bros and sisters in the alleys didn't vote like they did for obama...a Godsend at the time, they thought. Now?
    Their lifestyle probably isn't any different and the choices...a white woman or a lunatic? Fuck it, hillary is predicted to win anyway. Stay home and drink a beer. Watch the liberals celebrate..

    Democratic Underground hacked to pieces. Still down.
    Last time I witnessed such a depressing turnaround was when brownback was reelected. Course the 2nd reagon and bush elections have kinda dulled the surprises.
    Would he create events that start a serious wall street dump? It seems that would be cutting your nose..... The people..Lets hope the rightwing congress can show a little empathy.
    Cuz there are already indications the people are really pissed. And if it gets from the usual ghetto fires into a more 'autumn spring' protest.
    With reagon, when we started to hear this from his constituents, "Well, as least he has good people around him." (shudder)
