Live Blogging the Election

I thought I would try my hand at some live-blogging –

It looks like the GOP is off to a good start; 1 pickup for the Senate in Indiana, holding the seat in Kentucky.

Rubio projected to win -sweet

O’Donnell and McMahon set to lose.

GOP Senate pickup in Arkansas

Mancini wins in W. Virginia; this may put the Senate out of reach for the GOP

Looks like Nanci Pelosi is now the first female Ex-Speaker of the House.

On a sad note, Barney Frank will retain his seat.

Feingold is down – that’s gotta hurt.

Nikki Haley wins – big win there.

New Mexico has just given us our first Female Hispanic Governor – Republican.

California decided to stay in the toilet with Boxer and Brown – a sad end to a once great state.

Mark Kirk  wins in Illinois, giving Obama’s old seat to a Republican. Priceless.

Reid wins in Nevada – bad for the country, worse for Nevada.

LePage wins for Governor in Maine, largely due to efforts of Lefties popularizing his ‘tell Obama to go to hell’ statement, and atheists freaking out over his stance on creationism.

    Vote “Yes” on 62!

    It looks like Rand Paul won, which is good.

    Also, you’re copyright infringing the source that you’re blogging from 😉

    You must first wait 95 years before you can legally blog about it.

    If only libertarians were a bit more pirate partisan when it comes to issues of intellectual property, not being so is my main criticism against them.

    The word ‘live-blogging’?

  4. Bettawrekonize says:

    No, you’re getting your information regarding who’s winning the election from another source which means you’re sorta “copying” that other source.

    and I was joking about the infringement part, though these days, if you’ve seen some of the trivial things that lawsuits have been issued over and some of the ridiculous rulings even, I’m not really so sure how much of a joke my joke is and how far off from reality it is (ie: look up the Hot news doctrine). It’s really not all that far off from reality, unfortunately.

    Not over public information though, the news outlets don’t have a lock on returns from the states.

  6. Bettawrekonize says:

    “Not over public information”

    Actually some states try to consider their building codes and some laws copyright even.

    This has to be one of the most ridiculous things I’ve heard to date.

    “Not over public information though”

    Really?

  9. Nate says:

    You talking about completely different things from public statements and election returns which are not the property of localities or other entities.

    Not that I agree with it the way it is.

  10. Justin says:

    Chet Edwards (D, Tex, District 17) is losing big here. He’s been a US Rep for many terms. Glad my one vote is there in the pile!

  11. Nate says:

    Franks seat is a shame 😦

  12. Nate says:

    Kirk is a good win, now watch Hawaii 1.

    His birth district

  13. Nate says:

    Has anyone called the Maine race? Its clear to me but I’m not sure how many people are in the remaining precincts. He is only up by 5,000 votes, give or take.

  14. Bettawrekonize says:

    Another example of the govt trying to charge for public information, or information that should be public anyways.
