ELECTION ANXIETY OMGWTF !!111!!
« on: November 04, 2008, 08:58:17 PM »
I am sitting in a newsroom and looking at early numbers and my blood pressure is through the roof.... HELP ME!!! I've been here 10 hours already, helping out with election coverage because someone is out sick. :trance:

At least my cheap ass bastard employer bought us pizza tonight. Right now we're ducking out to drink a pitcher at the bar across the street.

But Google has this very nice Elections Gallery to track it all at once.

My son is keeping me sane here, he's having a great time flipping all the networks and writing it all down on a clipboard. It's a big football game to him and he's not wrong.

With 100 percent of the precincts reporting: I am hammered and eating the fuck outta some chozzocolate chizzip coozookies.

Missouri is still up in the air, ugh.  We've got that great swath of ignorance between KC and St. Louis to deal with.

I picked up a bottle of wine on the way home from work tonight, and the liquor store was packed.  I asked the clerk, "Are you always this crowded during elections?"

He said yes, then I asked, "Is it because people drink then vote, or vote and then drink?"

He replied, "Every single person that's come in here tonight has had an 'I voted' sticker just like you.  Except that guy!"

And he pointed at the guy behind me in line that was holding a six-pack of Keystone.

I have Percocet and Tim Tams. A very reserved "woo!" from here in the REDtarded state of KY.
What's funny was VT was the first to be called in Obama's favor. I am proud of my people.

God, I hope Missouri turns blue.  So far it's leaning toward 56% McCain, but zero precincts have been reported in KC and Louie yet, which is where most of the population lives.

I'm full of wine, Xanax, and Tramadol, and I'm all giddy.

I was really worried that if McCain won, he'd ask Bob to be Attorney General, just like Bush did to our MO loser, Ashcroft.

I felt like the reporting was late this time around.  I got home early to vote and nothing was on the news.  I wanted to hear the asshats talk about 1% of exit polls with .05% reporting....

I'm excited this race is going like it is.  :D

You'll at least want to watch the big "Yes we can" speech in Grant Park, yes? It's looking to be like one of those "Where were you when that happened" type of historical moments. Like when I was in the Chi at a friend's bar over on Milwaukee Ave drinking too many Long Island teas that one night when Nirvana destroyed their instruments on SNL.

Is that some kind of erection euphemism?

I've even unscrewed one of the wall sockets in case I need to stick my tongue in it.
