It's gonna be a nail-biter - UPDATED

Webb and Allen are still neck and neck. Allen has a slight lead. 6:30 AM: Now Webb is ahead by 8,359!! with 99.75 of precincts reporting! The Green candidate has just enough votes that if she weren't in it, Webb would be ahead (She has 26,098). I can't stand the thought of Allen getting re-elected after he's proved to the world what a steaming pile of poo he is. (Webb might win!!! But there'll be an automatic recount at this small a margin)

Wolf won re-election for congress (BOOOO!!) but Feder got over 40% of the vote, which is fantastic. I hope she runs again next time.

And I could just cry...the so-called "Marriage Amendment" is now part of our state's constitution. We have made bigotry and hatred constitutional. And the worst part is, we could have gotten it voted down if we'd just had more time.

On the plus side: it looks like the Democrats are going to really win the House. I hope I wake up in the morning to find they've taken the Senate, too. (The Dems took the House!! The Dems took the House!!!)



I'm ashamed of some of my classmates who couldn't be bothered to go vote, even when I offered them a ride to the polls. People all over the world are fighting and bleeding and dying for a right that these youngsters are just throwing away. It makes me so angry. I don't even have the words to express it.

We had the same thing with Mr. Mac's classmates here too. Now, we didn't have any nailbiter races where it would've made a difference locally, but man - it's frustrating! The ones that killed me are the ones who wouldn't register because they didn't want to get stuck with Jury Duty. Great - these are our future lawyers, folks.

Come on WEBB!

I am amazed when I find out people don't vote. I mean, I know not everyone is a freak like me and votes in every election, primaries and all, but still!

A lot of my employees did not vote. It sickens me. Harold Ford Jr. would have won if these people and people like them had gone to the polls.

I live within miles of you and I COULD NOT be happier....Allen is a wamaccamama football analogy spewing idiot....

Oh sorry, was my Democrat showing? Damn [<---pulling down her skirt]

I was SO glad when the ads were over.

And I don't care if the whole Commonwealth voted. The ads/reporting were so prevalent that Allen did NOT stand a chance. He is a racist and a bigot....and he deserves what he got for LYING.

Sigh.
