7151  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: So yeah, the Tea Party hilariously screwed the GOP last night. on: November 03, 2010, 08:19:41 pm
Apparently the Republican establishment disagrees with all those extolling the virtues of the Tea Party and its favorite candidates.

Haha, that makes it all worthwhile.

I like how Lindsey Graham, who is basically a hardcore authoritarian and warmonger, an ideological soulmate to Joe Lieberman, is considered a representative of the "pragmatic" wing of the GOP. Roll Eyes

It was the Lindsey Graham wing of the GOP that won last night.  The Lindsey Graham wing of the GOP is all that's left.

No, because there won't be a Tea Party.  Party was fun while it lasted, too bad it didn't last through election day.

What do you base this off of? There's no reason to believe that the Tea Party is finished.

Sharron Angle, Ken Buck, Joe Miller, Christine O'Donnell (to a lesser extent).

Establishment creepazoids overperformed, especially that arch-fascist Marco Rubio, [real] tea partiers were destroyed or way underperformed.  A few snuck in under the radar in the house, but not many.

Slimy POS.  I like how Boulder County reported last when it was close.

One thing about this election is that I was making a lot of excuses for the GOP because of all the good paleocons they ran for Senate.  And then all lost except for Paul and Lee.  Now I'm reminded of just how much I hate, despise, loathe the Republican Party with every fiber of my being.  They are awful creepy human slime who should all have lost too.

After this election I wonder if they're not stupid but actually evil.

Awful scumbag.

Most devastating are probably MA-Gov, MA auditor (because that was out of nowhere), MA-04 (even though I expected that), CO Sen, WV Sen, AK Sen, and NV Sen (that one is partially because I had a bet riding on it).

Overall people tended to vote for whomever was the most fascistic candidate in their state/district.*  Sieg heil, this country is going to the dumps.  This is probably the worst I've felt after any election, although I can't directly compare it to 2004.

Rubio is over 60% in Miami-Dade (with 0.1% in . . .)

Hart County reports from Georgia - massive lead for Isakson.

(Hart is in GA-10, R+15)

There are evidently 2 Bass/Hodes voters.  I guess they liked both their former congressmen.
7162  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: NATIONAL SENATE/HOUSE RESULTS THREAD (LATE RESULTS/POSTMORTEM) on: November 02, 2010, 06:16:45 pm
Speculation is that Florida is the ground zero of GOP wave.
Rubio devastating everybody in Florida. Seriously how was this ever gonna be competitive?

A bit too soon - Nassau is part of FL-04, which is R+17.
7163  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: NATIONAL SENATE/HOUSE RESULTS THREAD (LATE RESULTS/POSTMORTEM) on: November 02, 2010, 06:13:34 pm
Rubio near 70% in first returns from Nassau County.

Razor thin margin in KY-06 thus far, though it doesn't mean much for another half hour.

Last poll (10/19) had Chandler (D) up 4, for context.
7167  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: If the Dems take a pounding, which it seems they will..... on: November 02, 2010, 05:28:25 pm
4 but 2 anyway.

The Libertarian in Indiana has 5%, if that holds, I will be a happy guy!

Presumably b/c Coats is anti-gun and a crappy candidate.

If thos early results in KY (and the NYT split screen) say anything Conway is doing better than Obama in 08.

That's not a surprise.

But isn't O'Donnell a witch or something?

No, she's you.

This just in - Christine O'Donnell is winning 100% of the vote in Delaware with 52,000 ballots counted . . . O'Donnell said in a press statement that "I'm not a witch, I just voted for myself."

From Campaign Spot. Ah the hype builds ... and builds ... and builds.

I don’t have the exits, but folks I know in the media and political worlds are getting their first glimpses.

Indicator Number One: I am told that one Democratic strategist, helping a television network with Election Night analysis, just declared that the Democrats were experiencing something on par with mass murder. The GOP counterpart looked at the same numbers and concluded the Democrats are, so far, not getting the urban turnout they need; suburban and rural areas are seeing big turnouts.

Indicator Number Two: One Republican who is seeing early indicators in Florida says, “If this holds, we win everything.”


The only thing the Democrats even had a shot at in FL was the governorship anyway... glad I predicted it for Scott. Tongue

Was he saying everything in Florida or everything in the country?

I've got five reporting methods ready to go for tonight, CNN TV, CNN.com, NY Times, Politico, and my local NBC affiiate (kfor.com) for the Oklahoma results.

What race in Oklahoma could possibly be that interesting?

According to Republicans, turnout is record high in rural areas and low in urban areas.  According to Democrats, turnout record high in urban areas and low in rural areas.  Just as an FYI.
