Election Night in Colorado

Well, I just got to the Colorado Republican Headquarters…after waiting in line for two and a half hours. I’m on standby in case anything “odd” happens. I’ll pretty much be checking email and playing online cribbage, but I’ll check back from time to time to let you in on any interesting things happening.

7:18p (everything’s in Mountain Time)....I will say this, Republican girls dress up very well. That’s always a big plus. They make the evening go faster.

7:44p…..sitting in a very comfy chair with a very comfy drink makes me happy. The reports coming out so far are a little unsettling. We’ll see. I’m just waiting for my, I’m sure will be, delicious burger.

8:03p…..Well the burger was nice. I hope the incoming returns don’t start giving me heartburn. Looks like Musgrave and Tancredo will win. Not so good for other Republicans.

8:46p…..I’m shocked by all the younger folks at the Republican headquarters. Nice to see. Everyone is reserved but ready to party. Pretty upbeat, for the “massacre” coming this way. I’m not seeing the Dem wave, but it’s still not good.

9:03p…..Second martini. Yummy! Still looking actually beter than the prognostications. Steele is hanging on in Maryland. Things going pretty much according to plan in Colorado. No one is fashioning nooses quite yet. The bar’s pretty full though.

9:36p…..As you can see from my flurry of posts, there’s not a lot going on here. We’re waiting for Beauprez to concede and that’s about it. check back later for any “new” developments.

10:03p….Is it bad when all the people ask for their tabs, and it’s only 10:00p? Oh well, at least it’s not a 3o seat swing. The Dems will have to act like adults for two years. Can they do it? With their netroots I doubt it.

10:19p…..O.K. I told the boss it would be a waste for me to be at the Republican HQ. Who knew it was me getting wasted…..mArTiNiS tasTe GoOd wHen yoU’Ve had FoUR!!!! Good news for the bar I suppose. It’s trickle down my throat economics.

10:31p…..Last post for me.  Good news and bad news.  The Republicans got beat, but they still have the Senate (for now).  Really, that was the best that could realistically be hoped for.  I wouldn’t want to be a Dem right now.  All the outrage and this is the best that could be done?  Enjoy it Dems.  I guarantee it won’t be like this in 08′.  And I don’t make too many guarantees.

nighty night rabbits!!!!!
