There are referenda concerning gay marriage and marijuana on various state ballots. Anyone guessing on how they would go?

Most of the gay marriage proposals would legalize the wedding. Minnesota has a measure to make such marriages unconstitutional, just like Wisconsin did. I wonder how Ned will vote on that (just a rhetorical question).

Here's to hoping Ned makes a hilarious gay panic joke to avoid explaining why they're lesser citizens to him!

Ack! The only place between Xining and north Mongolia you could find even one rowboat-load of old growth timber would be here.

See, this is why nothing I say should be taken seriously. My electoral map prediction is holding up so far, and I still think FL and VA are going to Obama. I just might be a few more beers deep before that happens.

Baldwin in a squeaker with +0.2%


In hindsight I was cautious in my Obama predictions because of the flurry of Nate Silver naysayers. He must be feeling very good tonight.

But the Baldwin result, which is turning out to be far from a squeaker, is a genuine surprise to me, and a very pleasant one at that.

So who wins this thread? I'll have to review...

Gee, I sure hope they were able to keep their composure.

Apparently there was quite the dramatic meltdown at Fox tonight.

Although I know it's bad form to toot my own horn, I would like to point out that Wagstrade now has a 100% accuracy rate.

Those are some clips I am SO looking forward to later today. Cue Jon Stewart's staff.
