    I'll be running in the streets naked if Hopey pulls it out. (Cover your eyes, my tits are not what they were).

    With less than 1% of the districts reporting, South Carolina is overwhelmingly going for Obama, which goes to show how much you can rely on the early percentages.

    Fun fact. Marvin Gaye was from DC. I planted trees in Marvin Gaye Park near his old home, along Watts Branch which is a tributary of the Anacostia River. Now you know.

    Lizzie, I hope so, but Nate Cohn reports:
    Miami-Dade stands out as an area of concern for the Obama campaign. The president leads by just a narrow margin in early voting, even though Obama won by 16 points in 2008. As is the case elsewhere in the state, it remains to be seen whether early votes are representative of the electorate as a whole. But it might also be a sign that Obama is struggling among Cubans, a possibility suggested by many polls.

    We'll see soon enough.

        Well, Nate just updated:
        "Obama's weak showing in Miami-Dade's first round of early voting was overcome in a second batch. Obama's now ahead 62-38, ahead of Obama's 57-41 victory in 2008. Once again: these are early votes, and it remains to be seen whether the early vote is representative of the overall electorate. "

    Fuck me, fuck me, fuck me*…..

    That's not an invitation, but an expression of how fucking on edge I am right now. If I had a pencil in my hand right now I'd snap it in three pieces and chew it to sawdust like an anrgy beaver.

  6. Come here a minute

    Let me be the contrarian to say Abigael can suck it — not tired of Bronco Bama just yet.

    Eating my ice cream too fast. I need to finish dinner before I can start drinking. What kind of booze goes with strawberry ice cream? I can just make a booze float and save time.

  8. pinkocommi

    Wonketeers, let me be the first to tell you, I love you for mind. Not your body. Keep your clothes on.

  9. BaldarTFlagass

    I'm not going to look, but I bet all these early results showing Romney winning states he's supposed to win anyway, with 3% of the vote in, has it looking like a bukake-fest over at Fox.

  10. Fuck Toad

    I wish I could go and orgy with you guys for Black Osama but I've decided to stay away from any electronic devices as soon as I get home, and also I live hundreds of miles away.

    Instead I'm going to do some writing and have a nice dinner and maybe get it on.

    Obama's ahead by 3% in Florida with 36%, a good amount, in; also leading in NC but only 15% in so far.

  12. poorgradstudent

    I'm in a hotel room in Chicago and it's not the type of room stocked with a full bar that soap opera characters get (and maybe real-life rich people?) so I can't soothe my nerves with booze. But hey, it's a big city, so maybe I can get my pizza delivered to me doused with vodka.

  13. VodkaGoGo

    Dare I watch FOX News? I want to see them have to call it for Obama but I'm not sure victory is a foregone conclusion.

  14. Negropolis

    50/48 Obama exits in New Hampshire.

    52/47 Obama exists in PA.

    53/45 Obama exists in NJ

    Closer than I'd like in the blue states, but a win will be a win.

    Obama going back up in Florida 51/49.

  15. Close_Read

    Can't stand the suspense. Going out to walk my dog. Please keep the live blog warm for me until I get back.

  16. Steverino247

    OK went to Romney. That's okay. All the smart Okies left for California in the 30's… (and thanks to whichever one of you first posted that!)

  17. FakaktaSouth

    I am just slowly freaking the hell out.

    I cannot imagine that this country has so many crazy people just running around loose every where making decisions like who's the president. Sometimes I really understand the Electoral College and where the founders were coming from with the whole "uninformed thing."

    I cannot look at Ann Romney ANY MORE I just cannot. She just DOES NOT look like a first lady to me.

    I bought alcohol for tonight and I almost never drink- yes, I had two glasses of cider in Paris in July but in America, I do not drink. I will be drinking to the Barack Hussein Obama. the 45th President of the USA. I just tweeted a photo of the button I "fixed" to Wonkette

  19. PsycWench

    I'm watching Virginia and remembering how everyone was calling it for Macaca but Jim Webb snuck up and smacked his ass. Literally with votes.

  20. C_R_Eature

    I have to say that I really despise having to stare into the Abyss of Worldwide catastrophe every four years at the prospect of handing over control of the most powerful nation on Earth to a gang of madmen, Bolsheviks, incompetents, grifters and thieves because the only opposition party here has gone completely over to frothing irresponsible insanity.
    This is no way to run a railroad, a democracy or a civilization.

  21. HouseOfTheBlueLights

    Wonkateers, my guests seem to expect me to interact with them, so don't say anything too pithy.

    Thank you, Jeebus. I know Cantor was asking waaay too much when you've been so generous already. (Posted 10am Wed)
