hoping Hillary dedicates this win to Vince Foster and all those who couldn't be here
What's the drink of choice this evening, folks?
Think I might start here and see where the night takes me.
United we stand
this morning Andrea Mitchell reported Huma Danger was back on the trail last night after "taking a few days off" during the Carlos Laptop Kerfuffle. THE MEDIA!
My voting location was modestly busy and fairly boring. Based on looks, I'd say 30-40% Trumpists, which for Waterbury is probably pretty good for him.
Maybe I should vote for Romney. It's Romney or Johnson. Or whichever one most says "don't nominate Donald Trump next time"
In the end, that's why I voted for Johnson. A write in might have felt more satisfying, but I want my vote aggregated as part of a "you done fucked up " total.
If elected, I will pass legislation making it legal to choke out Jeb Bush.
I'm voting for McMullin.
Mine was busy, but it's our first POTUS cycle in this location, so I have no basis of comparison.
I couldn't possibly guess as to their individual preferences based upon their appearances.
I too went Johnson, mostly in the hope that with a little better traction in four years, should the GOP continue to sluff off into irrelevancy, the libertarians might be able to nominate a more serious candidate who can mount a more serious campaign.
I enjoyed the subtle voter disenfranchisement at my precinct requesting everyone have IDs ready to be scanned. Because it's 'faster' the poll volunteer told us.
I'm content being part of the "drop off from Mitt" group. Someone will look at data and hopefully put forth a complete non-fucktard next time.
If you are going to vote for someone who has no chance to win, you vote for who you want to vote for.
I wasn't asked for any id.
MACtion doubleheader tonight. Ball State and Eastern Michigan play at 6. Western Michigan and Kent State play at 6:30.
Yeah, no ID at my polling place. They ask you to state your address, then you have to sign a registration form which they compare to a copy of your signature they have in their computer.
McMullin being on the ballot in Iowa helped this.
I did enjoy the look on the election official's face when I inquired about a separate pen for a write in. She said to make sure and check the list to make sure it is valid and I said I already did my research and confirmed the process.
First time in my life I have ever done a write in candidate for any position.
A complete non-fucktard is a lot to ask.
I'm interested to see how sane people try to move the GOP away from being the party of, by and only for pissed off white men and some of their wives (mostly the docile ones). Because that is increasingly the party identity, the party brand, and what the base wants the party to be. And it's an extremely difficult turd to polish. Not even a magnificent bastard Mitt Romney could do it.
If I had that option here, probably would've gone that way.
I think I should have re-arranged those words.
Maybe non-complete fucktard. I don't know. I'm at work. I'm functioning. I'm relatively sober. That's really all you can ask on a day like this.
Well, the GOP has successfully done this before, so it doesn't seem like THAT much to ask.
Everyone was using an ID to check in at my place. Then they used that to print the voter form. A massive time save compared to the old lady flipping through a spiral bound book.
And blacks who don't vote for Democrats are Uncle Toms, right?
I'm guessing CNN will call the election for Hillary by 11 a.m. Central Time
I'm just pointing out that more aggrieved white males support the GOP than their wives, by a fair though not huge margin. And I would surmise those who do not tend, in the aggregate, to bear a somewhat different personality profile from those who do.
No kidding. Gus you're better than this
I have temporary residence in a suburb since I haven't moved back into Des Moines yet, so I got to vote for a republican for legislature for probably the last time ever.
Look, I'm not going to defend my party. We're pretty much past the point of no return there.
But god damn if the writhing self-satisfied smugness of that sentiment isn't everything I hate about modern Jon Stewart liberalism encapsulated in one sentence.
Just pointing it out that any woman who disagrees with me is probably weak willed and dominated by her husband.
Just pointing it out.
I have to confess. I know who I said I would not vote for, but when I got there I realized there was only one real choice for the wise, manly, and responsible HaLoite.
Could the person in question hit a curveball?
They could have called it last week.
They mustn't have figured in the illegal Mexicans yet.
I believe so.
I think ol' Hilldawg may sweep the Sue Ellen Mischke vote today.
edit: upon repeated closer examinations, thems tittays.
NSFW, depending on your place of employment.
Voting to legalize marijuana in California today. w00t.
thems niceuns on the one with longer hair
Vacek and Elworth, it is.
As if this day doesn't suck bad enough, NATO is putting 300,000 troops on high alert.
These guys are the best:
Good article by David French on this topic.
For the record, I'm voting for McMullin.
Based on looks? Well, at least the ol' gusher doesn't judge superficially.
