OH! lol The song. Very appropriate!
Hey guys! It's election day and I'm the first one here!
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.
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
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.
I'm here *with* my I Voted sticker.
The "I Voted" sticker is a little small...
*Slides drinks down the bar for RuthAnne and Darcy*
@Darcysport - No, it's about right.
Hi Anthony! Anthony is "irishspy" on Twitter, btw.
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. :)
I've changed my name again!
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.
Voted for the first time as a U.S. Citizen today. :)
Welcome, brother. :)Here, have some Cheetos. The official junk food of the Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy.
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!
ON DRUDGE NOW!!!! EXIT POLL - JOHNSON DEFEATS FEINGOLD!!!!!!!Drinks on me!
Big congrats Simon!ON DRUDGE NOW!!!! EXIT POLL - JOHNSON DEFEATS FEINGOLD!!!!!!!Awesome!
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!
Woo(t)! One to celebrate. Hopefully many more to go. Mimosa me!
Just got in from voting - make mine a martini. :)
Anthony - Start with a double and work your way up.
LOL. I'm worried. This doesn't seem like the wave we were expecting just yet?
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.
*Puts money in jukebox*Plays some damn good rock.
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?
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.
Good tunes, Michael.Well, we have Cheetos?
Cheetos will do. :)Good work on the governor's race, btw. He couldn't have done it without you. :)
Anthony, about to make martini 2 here!
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!
Fox News calls Wisconsin Governor for Scott Walker (R). He's our version of Marco Rubio!I've opened the Knob Creek bourbon.
There's some good booze in this group! All the more reason for a meetup. BYOB and we've got a well-stocked bar. :)
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.
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....
Is there a "vortex watch" in Madison?
What did EBL have to say?? :P
WHOA! Just checked Althouse and she's sorry to see Feingold go but SHE VOTED AGAINST HIM!
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.
Oh! Anthony! That's Althouse. I'll DM you.
Whoa. What a mess. I'll just drive the Zamboni through here few times to clean things up.
Careful where you drive that thing! I think Darcy is sleeping it off under one of the tables...
There are two EBLs. I am the better looking one.
