I've heard Rove has phoned Mr. Bush to inform of the 'House'. Apparently he has not been watching the results. Needless to say he is said to be quite upset and will give a news conference tomorrow at 1:00 est.

artbrooks...lucky New Mexico and, Rapaire, Idaho, too! I've heard reports about Colorado having the worst problems of the whole country, today, esp. in the Denver area. There also seems to be some voter intimidation rumours:

DENVER -- At least two Hispanic voters in Weld County say they received calls from people telling them they might get arrested if they voted.

Jesus Torres of Evans said he received a call about two weeks ago and the man told him he would go to jail and be charged with a felony if he voted. Torres, 47, has been a U.S. citizen for 15 years and voted for the first time this year.


More about such things across the nation HERE.

So far, in CO, it's too soon and too close to tell much, except that we will keep our Dem Senator Slazar, thank goodness!

Yeppers, and Charley Bass just gave up the election. This could be a total sweep of the two House seats, if Carol Shea-Porter knocks Jeb Bradley out of the race. Our GOP party chair was just on the tubs saying that it looks as if Bush will be the lamest of lameducks for the next two years!!!

Rep. Tom Allen D has been projected the winner.
Senator Snowe R is a sure winner.
Mike Michaud D winner in the second district. We only have two districts, keeps fraud to a minimum, and the paper ballots help.
Gov. Baldacci D incumbent projected winner.

It may not be a democrat bloodbath, but the repubs. are going to be anemic.

One of our congressional seats (District 2) is being flipped from R to D. Another (District 1) was supposed to be solidly R, and the first time running, progressive D going against the incumbent had spent very little money on her campaign. They both have 50% of the votes, with 65% of precincts reporting. Of course, the R has 1,070 more votes. Even if the guy wins as expected, I think his world has been successfully rocked.

Just before I moved to Indiana from Ohio I understand that the genital area of the statue of Jim Rhodes (gallantly carrying a briefcase!) in front of the capitol in Columbus was being painted bright blue. The State Patrol did a stakeout but never did catch the perpetrator.

'Spaw, you wouldn't know anything about that, would you?

(Our library also, courtesy of Jimmy Rhodes, received a copy of the song "Because I Love Ohio." All I (fortunately!) remember about it was the chorus, "Because, because I love Ohio," and that the flip side of the 45 disc had the same song in a calypso beat. Your tax money at work....)

Why Rap....What about Jim Rhodes? He sent the troops to Kent State and had those lovely arches installed at the entrances to Ohio. AND although he kept running up against a brick wall, he tried, I mean he really tried............to build a bridge across Lake Erie. And there was John Gilligan, who should have stayed on the island with the Skipper.

Yeah, we've had some real doozies.............

Taft is the last gasp of "Taft Republicanism" and the worst gov we have had in a coon's age.....a complete horse's ass.

Basically Richard, it looks to be a good night for Dems, much of that owing to the overwhelming negativity about the Iraq war. Bush's approval rating is waaaay down and by a wide margin polls are saying that there is great disapproval of the war.

Interestingly his brother Jeb is twice as popular as the Resident. With any luck this election will make the final years of his residency pass without further losses of what this country is really all about, or at least wants to be.

We have a boatload of problems here, both large and small. Ohio is really under the microscope owing to past frauds problems. No results will be reported til after 9 PM because a judge ordered polls in Cuyahoga county (Cleveland) to stay open until then because of problems getting underway this morning with voters in long lines and going home.

Even with no returns in yet, NBC is already calling the Governor's race for the Democrat, Strickland. The GOP    asshole   dork    dickhead    broke-dick mook   buffoon (Blackwell) was the guy in charge of the last botched election and nobody wants his dumbass except of course the few really hardline Repubs.

I fully expect Sherrod Brown to unseat the Repub Mike DeWine in the US Senate race. He was leading the polls by a wide margin, almost as great as Strickland led over Blackwell.

Even if the machines are on the level, which appears to be questionable at least, there seem to be so many malfunctions it will be impossible to get a believable result anyway.
