Bob’s Musings: Broadcasting From The Front [Updated Below]

02 November 2010 @ 14:46

This Is America Calling…

1421 Hours:

-I am standing on a roof in America, overlooking the fruited plain.  The air is quiet, filled with the low sounds of millions of repining Americans quietly making their way to the voting booths that dot a landscape that has been ravaged by nearly two years of pillaging.  These men and women are determined.  They are committed to taking back what has been stolen over the past one hundred years.  In their ears they hear the faint echos of the ancestors who risked all some two hundred and thirty-four years ago to establish a new birth of freedom.  They seek no personal gain, no fortunes undeservedly earned.  These men and women want only to live in that land that was brought into being by the wisest of men who felt the guiding and merciful hand of the Almighty.

-No matter how today turns out, a new day has dawned for the Republican Party.  It’s leaders can join the movement to restore our freedoms and liberties or they can go The Way Of The Whigs.

-Dennis Miller expressed how I felt last night: ‘I am salivating in anticipation for tomorrow’s vote. Paybacks are a Behar.’

1921 Hours…

-Kathryn Jean Lopez reports that Little ABC News has grabbed all it’s marbles and gone home crying, leaving Andrew Breitbart, I’m sure, smiling.

-As you can see over at the top of the right-hand [where else] column, I have links to a number of places where you can go to see live-blogging of the Election Results.

-Over at The Other McCain, Smitty has set-up the ELECTION NIGHT HQ where he and Stacy will do, I’m sure, their usual top-notch job of covering the nation.

-I will be posting a thought or some news now and again, but I would patronize the other folks I’ve listed for more consistent updates.

Fox News called it for Rand Paul in KY and Dan Coats in Indiana at 1900.

From Katrina Trinko, over at NRO’s Battle ’10:

Cleta Mitchell, Republican senate candidate Sharron Angle’s legal counsel, sent a letter to the Department of Justice today, requesting an investigation into whether the coordination between Democrat senate candidate Harry Reid’s campaign’s and Harrah’s revealed voter intimidation in violation of federal law.

That’s one casino I will be boycotting.

1937 Hours:

-Ed Driscoll has found the perfect picture metaphor of the day [tip of the fedora to Instapundit].

1947 Hours…

-Michelle Malkin has up an Interactive Election Results Map.

2003 Hours:

-Fox is calling it for Rubio in Florida [tip of the fedora to Jim Hoft]!

    Voted here in Clayton NC. On the top half of the ticket, only had to vote against one incumbent Bob “the Mauler” Etheridge. I like where I live in this fairly conservative part of North Carolina, hopefully the rest of the State has come to it’s senses in this cycle, and then will continue exercising common sense in the next cycles. We’ve had Democratic Governors continuously back to 1993 and only three Republicans since 1877. The Democrats have controlled the NC Senate since 1898. My State and my Country have a long way to go but I think we’ve made the first steps.
    No Comprimise on principles.

    I think about them often in addition to the parts of NC who fall for the Bolsheviks screed, when I think of California I mostly think that they are f**ded.

    I vote in South Carolina, in a rural area by the way, and the voter turnout was very good from what I could see. But I work in Western North Carolina which is predominately Democratic. The problem as I see it, in WNC anyway, is that most of these people have always just voted the straight Democratic ticket because that’s the way their parents voted and their grandparents, ect. I know one guy who swore to his Dad, who was on his deathbed, that he would always vote Democratic. People up there are so set in their ways. One of these days, maybe they will see the light.

    RCP moved 4 house races into the toss up category last week one of which was NC2 where I live. Several of the other races had no published polls at all or the polls were from last summer. In NC7 far western NC Shuler (D) was only up by one in a July poll and I have some reasonable optimism about the districts around and east of Raleigh. Etheridge did better here in NC2 than the dems in the surrounding districts winning with 68% of the vote in 08. Last week Ellmers was up 46 to 41, I smell a wave in NC this year.

    Ya do good work, Bob. I am proud to say I voted for the son of Cuban immigrants. I just heard Britt Hume say Crist is, without a doubt, the most flexible politician he’s ever known. And he ain’t talkin’ yoga positions! I’ve had a crush on Britt for many years now, and this validates what goes on in my heart.

    Watching you in NC, too, Adobe Walls…

    Brother votes in CA since moving there a bit over a year ago….poor guy.

    What a fun night…

    WOLVERINES!

    RCP is calling NC 2 for Republican Renee Ellmers over Democrat Bob Etheridge 50% to 49% Burr held his Senate seat handily bad news for all the districts around mine though. I’ve never thought much of of us as a species now I remember why.
