  4. Hey guys! It's election day and I'm the first one here!

  5. Is the bar open at noon? Why yes, yes it is! But only if you have voted and are wearing an "I've Voted" sticker.

    If the sticker is the only thing you're wearing - free drinks all day!

    Otherwise, one free "I've Voted" drink and it's back to work for you. But come back at Happy Hours.

  6. I can't vote until this evening, but I just noticed my polling place is in an "adult day care center." I wonder if they're trying to tell me something... o_0

  7. Hey look. I found these fake Roman columns at the dump. I'm going to scatter them around the room like there was a big Hurricane or something that knocked them over.

    ReplyDelete
  8. The "I Voted" sticker is a little small...

  9. *Slides drinks down the bar for RuthAnne and Darcy*

  10. @Darcysport - No, it's about right.

  11. Hi Anthony! Anthony is "irishspy" on Twitter, btw.

  12. Yo ho! Still waiting for quitting time so I can go wreak bloody revenge on... er... calmly exercise my right as a citizen in a democracy.

    Yeah, that's it. :)

    ReplyDelete
  13. I took a Yo Voté sticker. link. I stuck it right on top of my sticker from the primaries on my wallet. I'm going to pile them up like license plate stickers until fiscal sanity returns.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Voted for the first time as a U.S. Citizen today. :)

    ReplyDelete
  15. Welcome, brother. :)

    Here, have some Cheetos. The official junk food of the Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy.

  16. Congrats, Simon!

    I took a pic, chickelit, but can't get it off my dumb phone. And I think I lost a bunch of pix, too. :(

    Loved your pic!

  17. ON DRUDGE NOW!!!! EXIT POLL - JOHNSON DEFEATS FEINGOLD!!!!!!!

    Drinks on me!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Big congrats Simon!

    ON DRUDGE NOW!!!! EXIT POLL - JOHNSON DEFEATS FEINGOLD!!!!!!!

    Awesome!

  19. I took a pic, chickelit, but can't get it off my dumb phone. And I think I lost a bunch of pix, too. :(

    Sorry about that. My old phone was like that!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Woo(t)! One to celebrate. Hopefully many more to go.

    Mimosa me!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Just got in from voting - make mine a martini. :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Anthony - Start with a double and work your way up.

    ReplyDelete
  23. LOL.

    I'm worried. This doesn't seem like the wave we were expecting just yet?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Nah. Don't worry. If it's 50+, it's still a fantastic night, and it's still early. O'Donnell was never going to win that Senate race, but we've picked up Wisconsin, Indiana, and it looks very much like we get Missouri, too.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Twitter seems to be crashing (big surprise). I think I'll just hang out here with the cool crowd tonight. Where are the bar snacks?

    ReplyDelete
  26. Hmmm... I still say +65-70 for the Rs in the House, but losing WV means we have to take CA, WA, and CO to get control of the Senate, I think. I doubt that will happen.

    Another martini, please.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Good tunes, Michael.

    Well, we have Cheetos?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Cheetos will do. :)

    Good work on the governor's race, btw. He couldn't have done it without you. :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Anthony, about to make martini 2 here!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Didn't get home until 9:00 and then had wireless modem issues. Now on line and trying to catch up. Some races are closer than I had hoped but most still seem to be going the way I want. Time to break out the Dewar's White Label. And congratulations on your first vote, Simon!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Fox News calls Wisconsin Governor for Scott Walker (R). He's our version of Marco Rubio!

    I've opened the Knob Creek bourbon.

    ReplyDelete
  32. There's some good booze in this group! All the more reason for a meetup. BYOB and we've got a well-stocked bar. :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Wow. Ron Johnson beat Russ Feingold. Wow. And Johnson never thought about running until he spoke at a Tea Party event five months ago.

    Johnson is the real deal. Very good man. Very generous, fantastic reputation in the city where he lives and works. He'll be an extraordinary senator.

    I'm shocked. WI will be a red state for the first time in 60+ years. Wow. And most of our House of Representative races are going red. And the Governor. Wow.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Well done! Getting Feingold out is a victory for 1st amendment lovers everywhere. :)

    Meanwhile, FOX has already called California for Brown and Boxer. Talk about spoiling the party for me. :(

    Time for a real martini....

    ReplyDelete
  35. Is there a "vortex watch" in Madison?

    ReplyDelete
  36. WHOA! Just checked Althouse and she's sorry to see Feingold go but SHE VOTED AGAINST HIM!

    ReplyDelete
  37. She allegedly voted against Feingold, but didn't make any comment as to the reasons why. Indeed, on the election blog, Mead has done all the commenting for that household.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Oh! Anthony! That's Althouse. I'll DM you.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Whoa. What a mess. I'll just drive the Zamboni through here few times to clean things up.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Careful where you drive that thing! I think Darcy is sleeping it off under one of the tables...

    ReplyDelete
  41. There are two EBLs. I am the better looking one.

  42. 89 cents in the ash tray
    Half empty bottle of Gatorade rolling in the floorboard
    That dirty Braves cap on the dash
    Dog tags hanging from the rear-view,
    Old skoal can and cowboy boots and a go army shirt folded in the back
    This thing burns gas like crazy, but that's alright
    People got their ways of coping oh and I got mine
    I drive your truck, I roll every window down
    And I burn up every back road in this town
    I find a field i tear it up till all the pains a cloud of dust
    Yeah, sometimes I drive your truck
    I leave that radio playing same old country station just where you left it
    Yeah man I crank it up
    And you probably punch my arm right now if you saw this tear rolling down my face
    Hey man I'm trying to be tough,
    Momma asked me this morning if I've been by your grave
    But that flag and stone ain't where I feel you anyway
    I drive your truck, I roll every window down
    And I burn up every back road in this town
    I find a field i tear it up till all the pains a cloud of dust
    Yeah, sometimes I drive your truck
    I've cussed, prayed I've said good bye
    I've shook my fist and asked god why
    These days when I'm missing you this much
    I drive your truck, I roll every window down
    When I burn up every back road in this town
    I find a field i tear it up till all the pains a cloud of dust
    Yeah, sometimes I drive your truck
    I drive your truck
    I drive your truck
    I hope you don't mind
    I hope you don't mind
    I drive your truck
