I have to be up early so I'll have to skulk off to bed soon.

It's been fun watching the finale of America on tv.

I know a lot of the west coast blue states are yet to close, but holy shit, this is deeply upsetting. I know rationally that these are states that would be red even if Satan himself were running, but I hate seeing him winning so many states.

I'm doing well with not obsessing over coverage. I watch Bob's Burgers, I check CNN. I watched Jane the Virgin, I check the little helpful map DirecTV is providing. Currently up: Law & Order SVU, because amazingly there are apparently a few episodes I still haven't seen.

I have also had a little whiskey. After eating a bowl of cereal for dinner, because the thought of eating real food made me nauseous.

This is fascinating watching it unfold.
She probably holds on, but the DNC is witnessing the fruit of their deal from 2008, and its not good. Any normal GOP candidate would have wiped the floor with her.

I can't even curl up in the fetal position like any good American - I won't have my couch until the 18th! I can't curl up like that in my armchair.

Stupid furniture places with stupid delivery timeframes.

But that wouldn't have been as devastating.

I'm as stunned as anyone else, but I don't think the last part is true.

Trumpism appears to have drawn an over performance amongst exurban and rural whites. I don't think a Cruz or a Kasich would have done the same.

There's an ugliness here, and Trump knows what it is.

Utah might actually come in to play here for once if 3rd Party McMullin can somehow pull it out it would take those 6 electoral votes away from Trump.

I think Trump probably wins Utah though.

Nate Silver now gives Trump a 55% chance of winning.

Maybe Arizona but a long shot. Looking really grim for Clinton.

I don't agree.

What we're seeing is an overwhelming turnout by rural whites. Trump's message drew these people out in a way a Marco Rubio or John Kasich could never have done.

That this is the follow up to 8 years of the first black president in our history is incredibly disheartening, even if she comes back and pulls this out.

Glorified hyperbole.
