Turn Out The Lights...

the GOP's party is over AND let the sun shine in!

Dems take both House & Senate.

Evildoers, sleep tight before tomorrow's reality sets in...Speaker Pelosi, John Conyers and Chuck Schumer with subpoena power -- your worst nightmares have now come true.

I didn't have the energy to stay up all night, but one of the blessings of age is the number of times one gets up during the night.

Things the MSM are not talking about--the wars.

"I'm glad the Democrats won and the Republicans lost. I hope this will change the Bush policy in the Islamic world and especially in Iraq," said 48-year-old engineer Suheil Jabar, a Shiite Muslim. "We hope American foreign policy will change and that living conditions in Iraq will improve."

They need to grasp this and build on it. Bring 'em home.

This needs looked into and the culprits punished once and for all. Americans earned the right to vote and should be able to do so without the worry of votes stolen, bodily harm or any fraud. Some people are not doing their jobs if this remains unchecked.

The Cook County Presidents race was being county all night and early into the morning. Let's hope the DOJ is watching all the events surrounding this, very closely.
"I would have liked to see him get in the conventional way" Barak Obama. on Todd Stroger, Democratic Candidate for President of a County with 6.1 Billion dollar budget with over 5 million people.

The governor even took previously Republican Lake County, getting 46 percent to 43 percent for Topinka.

"He made her appear to be (convicted ex-Gov.) George Ryan's twin sister,” said former Republican Gov. Jim Edgar. “She didn't have the money to go on TV and offset his negative ads. It shows the power of money and television.”

Blagojevich, who turns 50 next month, becomes the first Democrat to be re-elected governor since Otto Kerner in 1964.

Blagojevich Wins

What's more, the strategy devised by Karl Rove, Bush's political adviser, to politically divide the country, moving the Republican Party to the right to win what would inevitably be close elections by energising socially conservative voters is now virtually dead, more or less repudiated by the result.

Hello CC, lacking sleep and its still a good day;-)

Teak, I saw that-can you believe their nerve? Forbes saying dems will have "minimal impact" -yeah, right- and so did the voters *LOL*

Les Wexner of the Limited brand spent all that money on Debra Pryce (7 term repug) and she LOST. Barely, but lost all the same! Bad investment, much like the sweat shop clothing he sells...

Now they are really scared-you see the new AG, unlike the old one-intends to begin investigations into the rest of the corruption problems. That means Blackwell will end up in jail-there is enough alledged evidence to charge him for what he did in 2004 with fraud. And he thought he could be governor? Alrighty then.

S-Q I see AZ tossed out some reps too.

Young soldier works with repugs and said yesterday and today lot's of long pouty faces...AWWW see me playing the worlds smallest violin for them heehee

Patriot Girl,

From Huffington

Montana Vote Situation: Jon Tester leads Conrad Burns by approximately 1,700 votes (as of 11am EDT) and counting. In Silver Bow County (Butte), a Democratic stronghold, votes are still being counted but Tester is winning there with 66% of the vote. We expect to gain the majority of these uncounted votes and to add to Tester's margin.

Montana Process: When the counting phase is completed, a canvass will verify the vote tallies. That process could take as long as 48 hours, and must begin within three days and end within seven. Unless the canvass shows the margin to be within ¼ of 1%, there is no recount. As the loser, Burns would have to request the recount. When the votes are all counted, we expect to be outside that recount margin.

Virginia Vote Situation: Jim Webb is up by approximately 8,000 votes and once the provisional ballots are counted, we expect Webb's margin to increase. (Please note that VA absentees were included in the tallies from last night.)

Virginia Process: A canvass is underway to verify the results and we expect that process to finish within a day or so. To be in recount, the margin needs to be less than 1% and Allen (as the loser) would have to request it. Because of Virginia voting laws, the margin would have to be much tighter than it currently is to see any change in the outcome. Given the current margins, that is highly, highly unlikely.

Third generation chicago native, I grew up in "Chicagoland" and lived there in the seventies and early eighties. So, I almost inevitably think of Chicago politicians as corrupt from the get-go. But Blagoyevich was so piled upon by the Repubicans, The Tribune, innuendos from Fitz's investigations and indictments, and thrown under the bus by the Daley regime and the Madigans, that he has almost become an anti-hero to me, and I rooted for him.

Also, I wanted to congratulate the following candidates who made history yesterday. We have the first black governor, the first muslim lawmaker in Congress, and several open gay officials to office which will make the gay community proud:


Deval Patrick: the first black Democratic governor in Massachusetts.

Keith Ellison: the first Congressional Democratic Muslim lawmaker in Minnesots.

10 Key Victories in 2006:
-- Patricia Todd, who will represent District 54 in the Alabama State House. Todd is the first openly gay person ever elected to any office in the state.
-- Kathy Webb, who will represent District 37 in the Arkansas State House. Webb is the first openly gay person ever elected to any office in the state.
-- Henry Fernandez, who won a seat on the Lawrence Township School Board, making him the first openly gay person ever elected to any office in Indiana.
-- Al McAffrey, who will represent District 88 in the Oklahoma State House. McAffrey is the first openly gay person ever elected to the Oklahoma state legislature.
-- Jolie Justus, who will represent District 10 in the Missouri State Senate. Justus is the first openly gay state senator in Missouri history.
-- Ed Murray, who will represent District 43 in the Washington State Senate. Murray, a former state representative, is the first openly gay state senator in Washington history.
-- Matt McCoy, who becomes the first openly gay candidate ever elected to the Iowa legislature. McCoy, a sitting state senator, came out during his last term.
-- Ken Keechl, who won a seat on the Broward County Commission in Florida, beating an appointee of Gov. Jeb Bush.
-- Jamie Pedersen, who becomes the third consecutive openly gay person to be elected to represent District 43 in the Washington State House.
-- Judge Virginia Linder will join Rives Kistler on the Oregon Supreme Court, making it the first state ever to have two openly gay Supreme Court Justices, according to preliminary results.
