YOUR NEW PRESIDENT  2:17 am November 5, 2008

Barack Obama Wins … Indiana, Too!

by Ken Layne

FTW
Indiana. With 99% of the precincts reporting, Indiana has gone blue/black or whatever new thing we will call states. Indiana. It is 2:09 a.m., on Wednesday, and Indiana is in the tank. Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Nevada … it’s 349-159, at the moment. It is a massive win.

Nate Silver’s final projection? Obama – 348.6, McCain – 189.4

Nate Fucking Silver is set for life.

PenguinDreams November 5, 2008 at 2:24 am

Every four years or so, living on the west coast really pays off. I’m very glad it’s still early enough here that I can watch all the votes roll in and still have a reasonable hope of getting up in time for work tomorrow.

GooooooBama!!

(Of course, that says nothing about the hangover. But it’s worth it.)

jagorev November 5, 2008 at 2:25 am

The last time Indiana voted Democratic was in 1964, in the Civil Rights landslide. Before that, it was for FDR’s first two terms.

Let that sink in for a moment.

It looks like Hopey will hold on in NC as well. The only time that state has voted Democratic since 1964 was in 1976, in the aftermath of Watergate.

Darehead November 5, 2008 at 2:25 am

Not just the first black prez.
The first crying prez.
The first sneezing prez.
The first Joe Cool prez.

PerhapsSo November 5, 2008 at 2:25 am

Warning, Hoosiers: Once you go black, you’ll never go back.

Mara47 November 5, 2008 at 2:26 am

Why isn’t anyone saying LANDSLIDE?

Aurelio November 5, 2008 at 2:27 am

349-159. That’s more than double. A fucking landslide.

Which proves that voters hate Republicans even more than they hate black people.

It kinda chokes me up and makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

Rachel Ray Jihad November 5, 2008 at 2:27 am

Gene Hackman is in the tank.

Darehead November 5, 2008 at 2:27 am

And Ralph Nader was a spoiler in Missouri. Ah, whatever. Barry won anyway.

sharkytowers November 5, 2008 at 2:29 am

Black is back fall in we’re gonna win…

Aurelio November 5, 2008 at 2:29 am

Is this the first black leader of a white country in the history of the world? I can’t think of any others.

smashtheduck November 5, 2008 at 2:30 am

I’m back. I’m still a little drunk. Okay, I’m still shit-faced. I’m giddy. I’m happy. HOLY FUCK! Did this really just happen?

jagorev November 5, 2008 at 2:31 am

[re=166418]Mara47[/re]: No, sorry, a landslide is when you confine your opponent to double digits in the electoral vote. See: 1964, 1972, 1980, 1984. Maybe’s Hopey’s re-election can be a landslide, but this ain’t it.

This is more of a 1988-level Bush-Dukakis ass-whooping. Certainly a heckuva lot more of a mandate than anything Dubya ever put together.

facehead November 5, 2008 at 2:31 am

I can haz mandate?

Darehead November 5, 2008 at 2:32 am

Franken behind by less than 100 votes. The most exciting race ever.

Mara47 November 5, 2008 at 2:32 am

[re=166421]Aurelio[/re]: The magic word, at last! Let’s all savor the sound together, children: LANDSLIDE!

apocalypsethen November 5, 2008 at 2:33 am

holy assmuffin, this is a drubbing.

although. I will be mortified if my home state, missouri, can’t manage to be as progressive as INDIANA.

jagorev November 5, 2008 at 2:34 am

I like this new electoral map: East Coast + West Coast + Midwest (don’t let the team down, MO!). Basically, every part of the country that’s worth living in.

[re=166430]Darehead[/re]: On the other hand, Michelle Bachmann is beating our favorite elf. I haz a sad.

WagTehGod November 5, 2008 at 2:36 am

In my home state of MO, Hopey is down 338 votes with all the precincts in. Where’s ACORN when you need them????

eatsshootsleaves November 5, 2008 at 2:36 am

I know, Nate Silver NAILED it, except he had Indiana going to McCain. That’s it. That was his one mistake. All hail Nate Silver.

Darehead November 5, 2008 at 2:37 am

[re=166434]jagorev[/re]: She won already. Sob.

jagorev November 5, 2008 at 2:38 am

[re=166436]eatsshootsleaves[/re]: [re=166412]FreshCliches[/re]: If Nate Silver doesn’t get a job in the White House or at the BLS or somewhere where he can use his forecasting magic voodoo skillz for the good of the country, I will be very disappointed in Barry’s judgment.

Obama Wins! God Damn America!

Random sampling of fabulous comments:

About 20 rockets just hit Israel. The news is just breaking. The Muslims are celebrating their Messiahs victory tonight.

Tell you one thing. Lots of Christian hospitals will either stop taking federal funds or close their doors. Some will take federal funds and do abortions. Many more won’t and will either scale back or close their doors.

Israel will be destroyed at this time and because of this new president.

Tens of millions of people sold their souls for silver.
But Sarah never did.

Check out this video of her.

The North Star shines bright, even now.

2012.

R.I.P. America

Born – July 4, 1776
Died – November 4, 2008

We had a great run and it was fun while it lasted.

Unspeakable grief. America just died. All that was good, and bright, and full of promise… Gone. The gift that previous generations bequeathed to us at such great cost has been thrown away as though it were a used tampon. Our great achievement this evening: We’ve managed to throw the baby out with the bathwater. We have become a nation of stupid sheeple.

Well, if Franken and Merkley pull this off, and the screwy counting in Georgia (seems like some counties have ignored the absentee ballots until now, which were at a record number) puts Chambliss back beneath 50%, then you can expect a few gazillion dollars and every Democrat lawyer/activist/volunteer on earth to converge on Georgia for the runoff. Yes, we are all Georgians now.

Not to downplay Barry’s historic moment, but if you want to see graphically what “massive” wins are, go to http://www.270towin.com/ and play with the drop down box to look at the red/blue distribution for various election years.

Look at 1964, 1972, 1980 and 1984.

Those were massive wins, when an entire country seemed to vote as one.

If Barry and the Dem majority can work it well, 2012 could look like one of those years: homogeneous color from one coast to another. Still much work to do, much snark to gack up…. enjoy the moment, but be ready on January 20 to come out and work for the kind of first term that will make Barry’s next one a true landslide.

persiflage November 5, 2008 at 6:32 am

From Pravda>:

Only Satan would have been worse than the Bush regime. Therefore it could be argued that the new administration in the USA could never be worse than the one which divorced the hearts and minds of Americans from their brothers in the international community, which appalled the rest of the world with shock and awe tactics that included concentration camps, torture, mass murder and utter disrespect for international law. Yet in choosing Obama, the people of America have opted to come back into the international fold. Welcome back, friends!

A little off topic, but I’m in Mass and this is the first time everyone/thing I voted for has won!

Results of the 3 Mass propositions as reported by Nelson Muntz:

Prop 1 (abolish the income tax): 70%-30% ha ha paultards
Prop 2 (decriminalize pot): 65%-35% ha ha puritans
Prop 3 (abolish dog racing): 56%-44% ha ha jerks who abuse dogs

NE-2 appears to be very close right now. Obama just might win that 1 electoral vote. By the way, there was talk of hundreds of thousands of early votes not counted in Georgia. The local press has refused to call for the presidential race.

What the fuck, Minnesota.

(actually, I know what the fuck. It’s all the born agains who have been carpet-bombing me with emails about terrorists taking over America and how the Holocaust is going to happen again. And all the idiots who thought it would be “fun” to vote for the third party candidate.)

Sadly, this is exactly what I predicted.

Oh Well….we got the big one and at least the entire country now knows about Bachman so maybe Wonkette can dedicate itself to making fun of her every single day. Norm, I assume, will be in jail in about 8 months.

Will someone fucking tell me how Michele Bachmann is going back to Congress and how fucking lucky we are that we can still laugh at her?

And what are the odds Sarah Palin runs for Ted Stevens’s Senate seat in a few weeks when he’s expelled? I put it somewhere between and “you betcha!”

To quote Mr. Ford: “My fellow Americans, our long national nightmare is over.”

alright “swingers,” now that we’ve seen you can vote Democratic, how about we keep on doing this? thx

and, I’m actually happy now that I had to endure some self-righteous fat horrid monster Republitard pollworker from ANOTHER PRECINCT screaming at ME (the boss of my own precinct) about how she was ‘CHALLENGING’ ME from letting a college kid vote in his correct precinct, where he was in the pollbook, where he had proper ID in Hamilton County, Ohio* which the magic CNN board is now saying most likely put Hopey over for the win in Ohio!

P.S. which was completely and utterly and totally out of line and NOT allowed as per her job description

*oh, and when she called the Board of Elections on my ass, guess who was shut downlike McLame?

She’s probably all scared and stuff now, but if she looked good she might feel better instead of bitter. Considering just how much she entertained us all I think she deserves a spa day for all her efforts.
