    Could you mean Jennifer?? =)

  2. Maybe I have a one track mind about these here elections, but does your little birdy have any info on the Illinois governor’s race?
    I’m probably going to be up all night following the returns. Gawd, I’m dull.

  3. Is this good for the GOP or bad? Last time around I remember the exits being much worse for them, and they ended up doing pretty well. Is the same bias in effect this time? Or have they been fixed? Or thave they overcompenstated for the previous error and the GOP is actually doing worse?

  4. If those hold up (and as FDAS points out, who knows…) looks like the Dems will sweep the four close ones they need for control (MD, MO, MT & VA) assuming they don’t lose any they’re expected to win and Lieberman plays along? Oh well, that’s enough for me – I’m ready to call it: Dems take control of Senate.

    Well, the AP has called it for Blago. Not surprising, and considering his competition, not really all that disappointing either.

    I went to the polls this morning, with my clothespin and barf-bag, with 2 objectives in mind: punish the Republicans, and vote out the incumbents. Unfortunately, given that all the incumbents are Democrats, that left me in a bit of a bind.

    Actually, I’d been planning to vote for the Democrats for the first time since the Carter administration, but at the last minute I received a mailer from Sen. Crotty outlining a massive number of new government program proposals that enraged me sufficiently that the Republicans got most of my votes by virtue of merely having kept their big mouths shut and having stayed out of my face.

    So, aside from the lone Libertarian on the ballot, running against my congress-critter, the Hon. Jesse Jackson, Jr., I wound up voting a straight Republican ticket.

    I figure this was a safe choice because a.) I’d never heard of any of the candidates, so they probably haven’t been indicted for anything, and b.) there’s no way a Republican can win an election for so much as a dogcatcher in this state.

    I’m not going to be too terribly disappointed when all of my candidates wind up getting their asses handed to them.

  6. Pig Mannix,

    Your district is relatively strong for the LP. I was checking returns from 2004, and I saw a lot of votes from there for LP candidate Jerry Kohn. Good for you, but what’s up with that? There must be some sort of history there. Can you tell me more?

  7. Jerry Kohn = John Kerry, obviously…right?

  8. I was incredulous when I saw Kohn’s name the first time, too, but he is a real person.
