The Dems are doing well in Michigan so far, although the results for the proposals so far are opposite of what I voted....

Damnit, I missed him again.

Ok, forget the computer, I'm channel-flipping until I see him again.

I thought Wisconsin was better than that Also the post's ballot initiative coverage doesn't include the death penalty, I had no idea that was up for a vote.



On the bright side KOs has us halfway there in the house now.

Yeah and thursday MA legislators could vote to send it to a vote next year that could put a ban on the 2008 MA ballot.

But it will never get there, and if it does, it ain't passing.

Putting minority rights to a vote is always a disaster. I have my doubts that the 13th, 14th, and 15th amendments to the Constitution, which ended slavery and gave blacks civil rights, would ever have passed had their passage not been a condition for the former Confederate states' readmission into the union.

Considering it took nearly 100 years for them to be fully enforced tends to add to my doubts.

Sherwood in PA goes down and Foley's seat has been conceded by teh R write-in candidate to the Dems. Add those to what KOs has and it's 10 for the dems, though CNN has it at 9.


They're talking about Nancy Pelosi being the first female speaker of the house.

So did I.


CNN has projected the "gay marriage" amendment to go Yes. I'm so upset about this because there's also some language in the amendment that goes like this: "a legal status identical or substantially similar to that of marriage for unmarried individuals shall not be valid or recognized in this state." So, basically, people who are unmarried, even if they have been together for many, many years, will have no legal rights when making decisions (medical, etc.)

It's horrible that people who have been married for one day have more legal rights than people who have been together for 20 years. And, obviously horrible that we "ban" gay marriage, even though the Wisconsin Constitution already restricts marriage to between an man and woman It was just called a gay marriage amendment to get people angry and out to vote.

Yeah I totally saw a graphic flash during an interview on NBC. I thought it was bizarre b/c someone was talking at the time. That's exciting news though

I find it interesting that FOX News, of all people, have been more quick to call contested House races in favor of the Democrats than CNN. FOX News states currently that there's only one to go for them. CNN gives five to go.

At least on the websites.
