Kentuckians are great people but politically dumber than a box of ****. Just look at the guy Rand is replacing, and Mitch McConnell. Rand Paul had everything working against him and Conway had everything going for him and that still didn't matter.

    Also I thought CNN had decent coverage. I enjoyed them talkign about Prop 19 but sadface when found out it didn't pass.
    the only real fight was in the republican primary. msnbc and their cronies wanted very much for this to be a race, but it never was.

    Conway had nothing going for him. His views on abortion alone make him a poor choice for Kentucky voters.

    He ran on sound bites and a campaign of fear. He should be ashamed

    it's a couple thousand votes in the wrong direction.

    And we are at 80% reporting.

    but yeah, when I called the race, it was based of that erroneous reporting that has been corrected. This one won't be able to be called until we are at 96-97% reporting.

    Carly Fiorina is giving a weird non-concession speech. WTF? She sounds like she's drunk.

    Things are now looking pretty solid for the Democratic senators in both Washington and Colorado. If Michael Bennett holds onto his seat in Colorado, it will be the second upset in the Senate (after the Nevada race).

    Although I'm glad to see that Patty Murray is (probably) going to win, I kinda feel sorry for Dino Rossi. This is, what, the third election in a row he's lost by a slim margin? That must be incredibly disappointing.

    What kills me is the repubs say they want to cut deficit spending but the one sacred cow that would get it done they won't touch -- defense spending and the two wars that are draining the life blood out of this country's treasury. For God's sake the repubs built an embassy in Iraq bigger than the Vatican! If that isn't a waste of money I don't know what is.

    When Cantor was asked point blank last night how he would cut the deficit he pussy footed around it. Never gave an answer. If that is their plan they will most definitely be tossed back in 2012.

    Repubs will you get it done and make some hard choices? The next two years will tell.

    Oddly we had a notable senatorial race here in Indiana where a special election was held to replace the disgraced Mark Souder. It wasn't and still isn't even in any of the alphabetical subscripts on CNN. Perhaps FOX or the other networks. I think CNN screwed up on this one.

    I did look it up on the Internet and see Stutzman the repub won which is no surprise in a state as red as Indiana. Lots pull the republican lever and be done with it here even though Stutzman is a terrible candidate. He did some very nasty and vindictive things during the election including caught in bald face lies.

    Let's see, who hasn't pulled out of the wars? Obama? The trouble with the left is they want to balance the budget on the item with represents 20% of the budget. You don't want to cut anywhere else. The embassy is bigger than the Vatican; where did you hear that?

    He would have pulled out but it would have been political suicide as right would have crucified him and compared the pull out to Vietnam. Never mind he inherited the mess.

    Here you go. Largest embassy and most expensive ever. The size of 80 ****ing football fields! It shows you the repubs are big spenders too. The link is from a right wing news source. How about that?
