For MA state results, I'll likely be on WWLP or MassLive, whichever has the better setup & more stable feed this year. I love seeing how each town in MA votes & especially like seeing exactly how my town voted, both for candidates & on issues
I too like to see the town-by-town results in the local stuff.. we'll see if the WWLP "Channel 22 B-Team" can hold it together ;)

I'll probably check in here and on wonkette when I get up to go to the bathroom overnight.. that should be plenty of updating :geezer:

I can tell ya, if things keep going as they are, MSNBC is not the place.

Chuck Todd is completely inert. Romney Jr is wiping the floor with him.

Today is the day I regret having given up cable. I miss my CNN wall-to-wall coverage.

Somewhere (here or on the net) I read that CNN is offering election news free - no cable.

I love political ads, I'm going to miss them :P

Made a quick Elections List on Twitter, it's at https://twitter.com/Orly_licious/lists/election -- you don't have to be logged in to Twitter or have an account, it'll be about 100 politcial people, from Steve Kornacki to RWNJ Bill Mitchell. You're welcome to use it.

So far, our favorite Election Night choice is "Fox Square" ... They are outside in the cold! They were in jackets last night, looks even colder already and they don't like being out there at all. It's hilarious and it's going to get worse. :lol:

It's the phone calls I'm looking forward to stopping! This electionwasn't as bad as the D primaries (which were contested for the first time in years) but it still sucked. No matter what happens tonight, the quiet will be a blessing. :notlistening:

It has also said that it is being "too aggressive" (i.e., reading too much into partial results). So tinkering is being done.*

And it up to 55% (+24 seats).
