here’s to the gloating B0bots

If PA is indeed gone, it’s over.

Good night everyone.


I just changed the date on this entry  from the original Nov 2- to put it on top.

By now you did your part, voted , it;s evening November 4. What do you do?

I saved myself a few useful guidelines which I will share with you

WHEN to watch:

these are the times for polls to close:

here’s an update as to when from Hot Air

7 p.m. Indiana, Virginia
7:30 p.m. Ohio, North Carolina
8 p.m. Pennsylvania, Florida, Missouri
9 p.m. Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, North Dakota
10 p.m. Nevada, Montana

The line is there because none of the states below it matter much unless Maverick’s come close to running the table in the states above it


I saw them advertise heavily on Direct TV to watch their coverage Election Night – do we want them rewarded? Exactly.

Exception from the rule:

Should the numbers coming in spell head exploding time for KO, Tweety & comp.

we don’t want to miss the fun. By all means – switch over then.

What to keep in mind when watching

I saved this a week ago for personal use – sorry I have no link and can’t credit it properly – any help finding the source is welcome.

Those who don’t remember history….

I pulled up some old 2004 election night result coverage and watched it, so read this BEFORE Election Night 2008, it will help calm your nerves.

Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maryland, New York, DC, New Jersey, Vermont, Delaware, Maine, Illinois, Rhode Island, California, Washington, ALL called with 0 percent in just from exit polls. So if that happens with Obama, don’t get discouraged. Kerry didn’t win remember.

Virginia – was too close to call with Kerry vs. Bush. Bush ended up winning by 8%.
South Carolina – too close to call. Bush ended up winning by quite a bit.
Florida – too close to call (not projected for bush until 98% of the votes in)
Ohio – too close to call. (called at 87% in)
Missouri – too close to call (Kerry had early lead)
Pennsylvania – too close to call
New Hampshire – too close to call
Missisippi – YES, too close to call from exit polling. Crazy, eh?
North Carolina – too close to call.
Colorado – too close to call.
New Mexico – too close to call
Michigan – too close to call (Bush had an early lead – didn’t win though)
Minnesota – too close to call (Bush had an early lead)
Wisconsin – too close to call (Bush had an early lead)
Arizona – too close to call
Lousiana – too close to call
Arkansas – too close to call (Kerry had early lead)
Iowa – too close to call
Nevada – too close to call
Montana – too close to call (yes, Montana)
Oregon – too close to call
Hawaii – too to call

I would pay special attention to the blue states early announcements – anty of those listed here is missing from instant calling – good news for us.

Keep this handy when watching the results. And if this inspires you to more historical research – here’s a good source – electoral maps going back to 1789

Update of November 3

Will Bower interview on CNN

“I see Barack Obama as essentially being the Democratic George Bush,” Bower said. “It’s a reactionary movement. People like John McCain and Hillary Clinton represent mores stability and sensibility to me.”

Indeed. It’s why I call him Jr.jr. Will as always, le mot just

“I didn’t want to validate corruption or reward the campaign for what I thought was a fraudulent victory,” Bower said. “What I am left with is a matter of trust. I have very little trust for Barack Obama. Even though John McCain and I might have differences on various issues, I trust him.

This is inside dope information – from PUMAs who campaigned there.

Only 10% of Hillary voters were needed to turn around to give the state to McCain. It seems there really are 50% of them doing this.

No wonder out in the street I was accosted twice by B0bots with “Obama needs your help” today.

They tried to give me sheets of paper with “Working for Obama” on them. I am guessing phone bank info. I must have gotten accomplished in killer looks – because the first one took  step back and the second one apologized. And I didn’t even had to open my mouth!


philly voting machines won’t barack the vote
