Watching MSNBC as well and was very dissappointed in the way Lawrence O'Donnell went after Eric Cantor. Its one thing to press a question its another to be rude.

Matthews was asking her if she intended now to pursue investigations into the 'unamerican activities' of some elected representatives on the Hill as she stated during the campaign. Matthews was being quite snarky and kept pressing her on the issue. Not one of his better moments.

None of these people would ever come on MSNBC or any other news outlet prior to tonight. Only Foxy News. Well, now they will have to answer to the rest of the media.

Sure MSNBC did bash them in the beginning for saying outrageously stupid things like...Rand Paul and all businesses have the right to turn away black people if they so choose. The media was blame, never them. I would laugh at them too.

Voted early this afternoon.....

It was a lovely day, and I live in a very young, densely packed, hipster neighborhood. The streets were busy as usual as I made my way to the school that houses my polling location.

I am sad to report that I was only the 73rd person to bother showing up today to cast my vote in my election district.

Hi guys! Waiting out the returns here in Washington State. Hoping Patty Murray retains her Senate seat, as Rossi would not be good - at all.

Listened to Boehner's speech. Very impressive, I thought. But what do I know? He seemed genuinely touched by the opportunity to lead the House.

I'm waiting also to hear of the Reid/Angle race in Nevada... I'm pulling for Reid. ;)

I agree, I hope Reid pulls it out as well (Angle fails to impress) - but still prefer the idea of Schumer as Majority leader, I think he would be far more effective moving forward.

Sen. Barbara Boxer is the projected winner here in Ca.
That's good...

All the early returns are just fine so for, as far as I'm concerned...

San Diego County had about 65% turnout..
That's good also.

There are also several initiatives on the ballot here. Waiting for the news stations to go local here for info on those.

Alaska is another interesting scenario.

:cool:

From what I'm hearing on the John Batchelor show, the exit polling makes it look mostly like a Republican vs. Republican fight at this point.

It would have been particularly interesting to see the Dem potentially win - and further underscored the issues Tea-Party candidates present to the Republican party.

Personally, I hope Miller goes down.

Touch and go here still on the Murray/Rossi Senate race. Prop 19 goes down to defeat in California. No legalization of the dreaded leaf and bud.

Ah well. I don't indulge. heh. I'm sure many are disappointed there though.

I also hope Joe Miller does not win. He seems quite arrogant and has some fairly extreme ideas.

Well, Kaz - one of the problems in Alaska is validating the write ins. That seems a difficult process. Probably will not know the results for quite awhile I would guess.

Yay! Good for him.
