Well folks,it's election night,and here at Mudcat Election 2000 HQ we are watching the results closely.So far,it's a barn-burner.The count at this time is Bush 121 electoral votes,Gore 119, and Gore has captured the key state of Florida.Big Mick has also apparently delivered Michigan for Gore. Stay tuned,and we look forward to hearing from all correspondents!

Glad to see you got the place set up, LeeJ. Nice bunting. Did you remember the noise makers? Anyone setting up the drinks?

Not heard a word, here, yet, about Wyoming, but with only 3 electoral votes and given its penchant for the Grand Oil Party, I go on record, stick my neck out, dive right in and predict that Dumbya will take Wyoming, to my chagrin!

That may be true Kat,and I'm predicting Bush/Cheney take Colorado as well.So far the big surprise to me is Florida,and I think Gore owes a big debt to Banjer and Harpgirl for their excellent grassroots work in that pivotal state.

Thanks,Mick.That's Michigan correspondent Big Mick,who played a key role in creating the Michigan Gore lead. Alabama has gone Bush,and he has increased his lead to 130 to 119.

We are also interested in local referendums and Senate/Congressional races.Here in Colorado,legalized use of marijuana is a high profile issue.I voted for it,although I think patients who are prescribed marijuana should also get free milk and cookies as part of the deal.

That would be two votes for medical marijuana from the Great State Of Colorado. Except I said I thought chocolate fondue should be a part of the treatment.

Watching avidly on CNN-online, listening to NPR -- what I get for not having television. I could get results AND have those familiar homicidal feelings come back as I listen to the tele-twits narrating all night long...

Fingers and toes crossed that MY Guy wins ...

The Governor of Wisconsin just said he was sure his state would go for Bush. Had the gall to be gleeful about it!

Miriam, there is a famous Mudcat song, written by our own Amos, tongue-in-cheek, about men's dangly bits, i.e. "pickles" glowing at night. It's been heard on Mudcat radio often and you can read it by going to the Quick Links, choose Aine's Mudcat Songbook and go from there.

Yes, Minnesota has been declared for Gore. I got carried away in my mode of expression.

Polls in CA don't close until 11 PM. They're not supposed to release the results of exit polls until then.

Robb just conceeded to Allen in VA. I'm no fan of Robb, but I hate to see the Dem's lose a seat, and I hate to see another electric-chair fan get into the Senate. Speaking of seats.

saumurer de concombre

Concombre is actually cucumber. "Cornichon" is a small pickle (gherkin). We could say Saumurer de concombre au vinaigre.

Now wait a minute, "saumure" is brine.

Dimmer is "variateur d'ambiance" - or "plus bouché."

Thanks for helping me find "Your Pickle Glows at Night." Now I'll need to look up the tune so I can sing it to Tim.

To celebrate Gore's victory - or to comfort ourselves should the unthinkable happen.

The Floridians are a bunch of wusses! I'm standing in the surf fairly close to Japan at the moment Leej,. and from here it definitely looks like there's a Bush burning going on over there in round-eyesville. Lights up the whole Pacific Rim. Californians are turning out by the platoon to right the silliness of newscasters who try to swing elections by juggling their predictions. We feel this will be a ferocious contest with ultimate justice as the shadow of Voting Day moves slowly into the Western wetlands. Of course, as the bishop said to the actress, that all depends on whose Bush gets Gored.
