First,let me wish a happy 68th birthday to a First Lady with poise,grace and class. Remember them? They were content to be supportive wives and mothers. What we’re stuck with now is a rude,nasty,entitlement queen with the grace of a camel and reeking of french fries.

After I finished my paper route this morning I stayed up long enough to go and exercise my right to cast an intelligent,informed vote. I feel good that I was able to cancel out one of the many illegal votes cast in this state. We got to the polling place at 6:03 and there was already a crowd. I don’t know if you can read anything into that but midterms normally don’t generate this much early enthusiasm.
As you may suspect,I have so many things today I could set a record for the longest thread on this blog. I will,of course,practice restraint to the best of my limited ability.

    MSNBC Pre-Spins Midterm Disaster: Dems Didn’t Tout Obama’s Successes

    : It’s because the party didn’t tout Barack Obama’s “accomplishments.” Host Ronan Farrow on Monday complained: “But, if these Democratic candidates are just flouting the President and at a time when he faces a tough environment on the hill already, sort of adding to his woes, do they risk alienating Democratic voters with that kind of divisiveness?”

    Michelle Obama Goes Full-Racist: Blacks Must Blindly Vote For Democrats Regardless Of What They Say Or Do…

    Monday on TV One, a cable channel who’s programming is geared for African-American adults, first lady Michelle Obama told Roland Martin the candidate on the ballot and what they say or do should not matter to African-Americans because voting for a straight Democratic ticket best serves their communities.

    The first lady said, “Thats my message to voters, this isn’t about Barack, It’s not about person on that ballot, its about you, and for most of the people we are talking to, a Democratic ticket is the clear ticket that we should be voting on regardless of who said what or did this, that shouldn’t even come into the equation.”

    She did,however,through her awesome imperiousness,grant special dispensation to the plantation dwellers to eat fried chicken….(after they vote,of course)
    First Lady Michelle Obama made light of her food-Nazi persona, granting permission to eat fried chicken as a reward for voting Tuesday and to celebrate a Democratic Party victory.

    Obama gave her fried chicken blessing during an interview Monday with Roland Martin on News One for Black America

    Martin: So can we, if we go out to the polls, can we say, we have ‘souls to the polls’ on Sunday, can we do ‘soul food after we vote’?

    Obama: Absolutely, I give everyone full permission to eat some fried chicken after they vote only after—if you haven’t voted…(laughter.)

    Daily Show Co-Founder Blames Wendy Davis Defeat on ‘Redistricting’ and ‘Media’

    “I think part of it is that redistricting is redistricting…But I do think that with Texas, the media has a lot to do with it.”
    Winstead believes that Davis’ epic fall from grace and abysmal ratings among Texans is because of “redistricting” and the media.
    What makes her poor excuses for Davis’ downfall so hilarious is two fold. The first is redistricting. When it comes to statewide elections such as the Gubernatorial race, which Davis is running in, re-districting doesn’t come into play. The entire state votes for either a republican or democrat. It does not matter where the voting lines of certain counties fall.

    The second excuse, the media angle, is also quite entertaining. According to, most major Texas newspapers have endorsed Davis and not her republican opponent, Greg Abbott.

    Conservative groups here are outraged at a memo that surfaced hours before the polls open—a memo that suggests that incumbent Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) personally coordinated with the IRS’s Lois Lerner to use the tax agency’s power to target conservative groups.
    “The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) did not want to publicly release 2012 correspondences exchanged between the IRS and Jeanne Shaheen at her personal Washington office: the agency delayed releasing the information to a major conservative super PAC multiple times, even threatening to see the super PAC in court, according to emails,” Howley wrote in what appears to be a bombshell story published late Monday evening, hours before the polls open here in a brutal election battle between Shaheen and former Sen. Scott Brown.

    They’ve had so much experience at cheating they’re really good at it.

    Brokaw: What Are Republicans ‘Prepared to Give Democrats’ to Meet in Middle?

    Gee,I don’t recall this obnoxious prick asking the same question when the democrats held a big edge in the House and a veto-proof majority in the Senate.
    Monday afternoon on MSNBC, NBC News’ Tom Brokaw was asked what Americans are thinking heading into Tuesday’s midterm election.

    “Well, they’re thinking that they’d like to have Washington get something done,” Brokaw said. “The question is, not just which party can get it done, but how can they change the tone of Washington so they can work together.”

    REPUBLICAN WOMEN Set to Make History Tonight
    We haven’t heard much about Mia Love,who had her election literally stolen away from her in 2012 is heavily favored to win a seat in Congress tonight

    Republican Elise Stefanik is set to become the youngest woman ever elected to Congress

    There’s a youtube of Joni Ernst but I don’t know if three vids would send this to moderation purgatory


    • chrissythehyphenated

      Just checked … Mia Love won by 3 points. I’m pumped about Elise Stefanik winning, since Warrior Princess and her Dearest Jarhead live in that district! Here at Casa Hyphen, we are hoorahing about Tom Reed winning by 25 points!!

    I was reticent to post anything from the open sewage pit known as Newsweak,but this is what Mia Love will be faced with from the oh-so-diversity-minded liberals.
    Mia Love Tries to Be the First Black Republican Woman in Congress

    White, white, white. In nearly every room Love enters as she stumps her way across Utah’s 4th District on a quest to become the first black female Republican in Congress, she is not just the only black person there. She’s the only person of any color, unless you count farmer tans.

    The Grand Old Party is tripping over itself to welcome her to Washington. She tells voters in stump speeches that Republican leaders have all but promised “you get yourself in, we will put you wherever you feel like you can be the most effective.”

    Love’s campaign manager and the godfather of Utah politics, Dave Hansen, has warned her that the moment she takes office, the Republican National Committee will do its best to drag her all across America, showing her off as living proof that this is no longer the party of Old White Men.

    Startling Change in North Carolina Early Voting Pattern
    There is one set of numbers in this breakdown of North Carolina early voting that really jumps out. This year 52.2% of early voters in North Carolina were age 60 or over. In 2012, that percentage was 35.5%. Young voters were scarce among early voters this election. In 2012, 13.2 percent of the early voters were ages 18-29. This year the percentage fell to 5.1%, while there was a drop from 21.8 to 13.7% in the age 30-44 age bracket.

    i had the misfortune of seeing this on F&F before my morning nap.This bastard is as phony as a nine-bob note.I was waiting for KG to ask him how he can claim to be an “independent” when the democrat party forced their own candidate out of the race and have his posters at DNC headquarters.He’s trying to hide who he is until kansans elect this fraud and suffer for the next six years.Damn,I hate phonies.

      Pro-amnesty liberal “Independent” candidate Greg Orman is running for senate in Kansas.
      The Democratic candidate dropped out of the race.

      Greg Orman has been trying to play independent despite his liberal bent.

    Clyburn Says Dem Candidates Will Lose Because They Didn’t Race Bait Enough…

    Rep. James Clyburn (D-S.C.) said on Tuesday that Democratic candidates have suffered this election cycle because they haven’t been able to properly address questions of race.

    “I just think we’ve had some good candidates whose campaigns have suffered because they have not had good advisors on questions like this,” he said on MSNBC.

    He had been asked whether Kentucky Democratic Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes alienated African-American voters by refusing to say whether she voted for President Barack Obama in 2012.

    VIDEO Captures Virginia Voting Machine Casting Ballot for Democrat When Republican Selected
    The Republican Party of Virginia is monitoring an apparent problem with touch screen voting machines in Virginia Beach and other localities. The GOP has alerted local officials, as well as the Department of Elections.

    They are reminding all voters using these machines to review their ballots carefully before they are cast.

    Election Day reminder: Early exit polls are meaningless
    We’ll know fairly early how things are going to go,with New Hampshire,North Carolina and Georgia all closing earliest.if the democarts hold two,we’re in trouble.If the networks hold off as long as possible before calling any race for the republican it might be a good night.
    In the end, though, the completed exit polling only gives us a short-lived sneak peek at potential results. Within a couple of hours in most states, we’ll get the actual results anyway. The best course is to be patient, but in any case, don’t put any value in exit polling until those data sets are complete.

    Midterm Media Bias Scorecard
    Assuming Republicans win control of the Senate and make gains in the House, you could reasonably expect an unbiased press to say things like:

    • “The elections completed a broad realignment of power in Washington and created a new political climate.”

    • “They reflected deep dissatisfaction with the president.”

    • “Voters delivered a stinging rebuke of the president and his party.”

    • “It was an astonishing turnabout at the hands of unhappy voters, and it was a rout once considered almost inconceivable.”

    • “It dramatically alters the government’s balance of power.”

    • “It marked an astonishing resurgence for (a party that) just two years ago seemed adrift in the wilderness.”

    These are, after all, the very words reporters used at the New York Times, the Washington Post, CNN, and other news outlets the last time midterm elections were held in the second term of an unpopular president. But in 2006, George W. Bush was in the White House, and it was Democrats who took Congress after winning 27 seats in the House and seven in the Senate.

    Should Republicans win control — and possibly win more Senate seats than Democrats did in 2006 — will the press tell it like it is? Or will they try to explain it away? Wring their hands about gridlock? Blame it all on secret campaign donations? Say it had nothing to do with Obama’s unpopularity, much less his policies?

    ABC to Offer Six Hours of Midterm Coverage…on the internet
    Considering that ABC’s World News failed to cover the midterm elections from September 1 to October 26, one might think the network isn’t interested in a possible Republican wave. ABC journalists are reinforcing that belief by promoting election night coverage: Seven hours of coverage. But six of those hours will be online only.

    Too Funny: Obama Admin Says Midterms Is Not A “True National Election”…
    Can you say delusional paranoid schizophrenic,boys and girls?

    And he said the Republican-friendly nature of this year’s electoral map would be a reason for the White House to limit any lessons learned from the outcome.

    “The electorate is different this time than it is in a traditional presidential election,” Mr. Earnest said. “That will be part of the calculation that’s made as we consider what sort of conclusion should be appropriately drawn from the election.”

    He added, “Any analysis that you do is different than the analysis that you would do on a true national election.”

  21. Some real Oklahoma-style excitement at our polling place today.

    About 7am, a cattle truck ran off the highway. Reports vary from 39 (probably) to 79 (a lot in one truck) cattle involved. Four killed instantly, a dozen had to be euthanized. Many escaped, and had firefighters playing cowboy to round ’em up. Not sure of the condition of the driver and passenger, taken to the hospital.

    I read about it in a local news site. Then we went to vote, around 11am, we discover this happened just south of the South entrance to our polling place. Fortunately, we came at it from the North, so we got in and out with no problem. Actually, easier than normal, since traffic from the south was slow.

    The poll watchers said there had been one cow wandering through the parking lot, followed by somebody with a bucket of oats.

  28. Independent quits, endorses Republican. Whattaya know! Pigs fly!

    Connecticut conservative gubernatorial candidate Joe Visconti is dropping out of the race. Visconti, who was on the ballot as an Independent, is endorsing Republican challenger Tom Foley for governor.

    The Hartford Courant reported that Visconti surprised everyone in a move that could boost Foley, who is in a tight race with incumbent Democratic Gov. Dannel Malloy. The news of Visconti’s endorsement of Foley came as President Barack Obama was in Bridgeport stumping for Malloy.

    Visconti said he was exiting the race because he didn’t want to see Malloy re-elected. “If I can’t be governor, I want to help Tom be governor,” he said.



  29. Dems sure are spinning the election hard and heavy in advance of getting stomped (I hope).
