    DADT is stupid, but I question that 80% of the people even understand the ramifications.

    His constituents didn't want Obamacare and they wanted to audit the fed, with a real audit, not the wimpy Bernie Sanders version.

    giood riddance to bad rubbish.

    I see. So Bennett is an idiot not because you actually know anything at all about him, but merely because you don't like his votes on a couple issues. For some reason, I thought you had something useful to say instead of just partisan garbage. I'll not make that mistake again.

    Looks like Ken Buck is gonna win Colorado. Too bad; this is the best example in the country tonight of the superior leader losing to an inferior leader.
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    Let me also add, this isn't about what American's want.

    This is a republic. You do what your constituents want. A senator in Colorado is supposed to a voice of people in Colorado, not a voice of elitist egomaniacs in DC, and certainly not a voice to protect bankers and banking interests.

    I must say I'm impressed by how well Lisa Murkowski seems to be doing in Alaska. I never would have imagined that it would be possible to mount an effective write-in campaign. I figured she'd get maybe 20% of the vote at most.

    NBC reporting error of 30,000 votes from Buck just removed.

    it's now within a couple thousand votes.

    Re: 2010 Midterm Results Discussion

    of 95 house seats on my radar screen, all dems naturally, which have already been called, republicans stole 63, dems held on to 32

    there are still a few too close and still a few out here on the coast that are just too early

    there will also probably be a very few dems NOT on my radar screen to go

    i know of 2 republicans who went blue, cao in new orleans (the vietnamese seminarian who voted for obamacare) and mike castle's open seat in witchy delaware

    my side took 2 of 3 in indiana, 2 of 3 in georgia, all 4 in florida, 3 in virginia with gerald connolly in VA11/fairfax (probably the most important district in the nation) tied with 99% of the vote counted

    my side took both in new hampshire (it appears), only one of 4 in north carolina, zero of 3 in iowa, 5 of 6 in ohio, 5 of 7 in pennsylvania

    lost both in massachusetts, took 2 and we're leading in a third in texas, took one and lost one in connecticut

    took 2 and lost mike ross in arkansas (he was quite a reach), took spratt in south carolina and skelton in missouri (ex chairs of budget and armed services)

    took kratovil on the eastern shore, adler in camden/cherry hill, took both dakotas

    all 3 in tennessee, it looks like 4 of 4 in illinois (melissa bean in 8 is trailing by .4% with 99% counted)

    2 of 3 in wisconsin, zero of two in maine, one of 2 in west virginia, 2 of 2 in mississippi, bobby bright in alabama, one of two in new mexico, 2 of 3 in colorado

    struck out oh-fer two in oregon, took louisiana, likely to take idaho

    new york---numbers come in very slowly, there were 10 dem seats my side wanted---5 are officially ours, two remain dem...

    cut to the chase, i can see we're gonna take 5 of the 10 new yorkers, dems will hold on to 5

    we'll leave the west coast to discuss later, how's that sound?

    upshot---plus 63 (for sure), minus 2, with about 15 more (again, all currently dem) out there to fight over

    fyi

    Re: 2010 Midterm Results Discussion

    So I went to go vote today in this little town I just moved in. There was only one choice for mayor so...I put my name in. Under city council there were 5 choices, and six choices needed. I selected all 5 and then wrote in Mayor McCheese. (crosses fingers)

    Anyways Conway sadly, predictably lost but KY is also incredibly polarized right now. I think this elections biggest surprise to me is the restraint that people had when voting. The "extreme" tea party republicans didn't get it. The "mama grizzlies" thank God didn't get it, and the establishment Republican that went independent in Alaska won by write in. If anything as a Democrat I need to thank the extreme tea party. If not for them fading things up, the GOP's candidates might have actually have won and we would have gone from getting nothing done slowly, to getting nothing done fast. Thank you Dick Armey!

In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    Well the Republicans are going to get their history making moment. It looks like they have smashed 94 in the dust and are going to set some new records.
