  • Ross Mason,

    I wonder whether John Key will be voting in Hawaii?

    Only if Hawaii has happy and gay Fruit Bats.
    They also have a voter intelligence clause.

    Fighting Bob Evans is a fantastic name for a guinea pig. I'd vote for him.

    I like his Honours section: Won the Civil War Campaign Medal, Sampson Medal and Spanish Campaign Medal; had two destroyers named in his honour; Theodore Roosevelt named his guinea pig after him...

    So it is all over bar the actual counting, which will take until Romney wins, going by recent history.

    Meanwhile, downticket, it's looking like marriage equality is going to have a good(-ish) night -- though Maryland is going to make Florida look decisive. :)

    CNN called it too. Pretty early calls so guessing my 300 vote call is going to be a little light!

  • Steve Barnes,

    That we can't get The Comedy Central coverage must be down to some kind of cock-up.
    What possible advantage do they get for withholding the show, it's not like they can sell it later and grab more ad revenue.

    In terms of seats in the House the figures I'm seeing is Repuglican 186 Democrats 136.
    So does this mean Obama is presiding over a predominately Republican House?.

    Try Tor or Anonymox to get a US IP addy. Crude, but it can work.

    I'm really fucking sick of hearing from people who should know better -- not least Jon Johansson on One -- that Obama won't have a "real mandate" unless he wins the popular vote. Low-information punditry, gotta love it...

    I think Romney is now busy writing that concession speech he didn't write earlier...(Obama wrote both)

    Well, yes - because it looks like even thought the Republicans are going to have a net loss in the House they'll still comfortably maintain a majority. OTOH, people were widely picking a GOP majority in the Senate that isn't going to happen.

    But you're wrong in the sense that no President ever "controls" Capitol Hill, by design. Separation of powers between the executive and legislative branches, and all that jazz...

  • Matthew Poole,

    Has anyone been sufficiently brave/masochistic to go into the Kiwi Blergh thread and see the response of the usual suspects to their socialist demon stealing the Presidency for the second time? I'm just not in the mood for bile-seasoned venom with a side of fanaticism.
