This election is threatening my sobriety!

Let's see. I've been watching early returns trickle in slowly, and I feel like drinking (regardless of who wins).

It doesn't help my sobriety to see that Stephen Green is drunkblogging the results, but the final blow was what Glenn Reynolds said here:

AFTER YOU'VE VOTED, knock back an Obama Mama or a Maverick Martini. Or three. I plan to drink heavily tonight, whatever transpires. And, possibly, for the next four years.
The problem is, I voted from 8:00 a.m. to 10 a.m. this morning. I always try to follow Glenn's health tips, but I'm glad he waited till 7:00 p.m. to tell me this, or I'd be blotto by now.

Moreover, I'll be making an appearance on PJTV's election coverage in an hour or so. Readers who are curious to see what I look and sound like might want to tune in. Whether you miss me or not, it's free all evening and there will be plenty of superstar bloggers.

As of right now (according to Fox News, with ), McCain is ahead, but will it last?

Here are the latest Drudge figures:

RESULTS:
FLORIDA...
INDIANA...
N CAROLINA...
OHIO...
VIRGINIA...

MCCAIN 512,172
OBAMA 486,922

It's way to early to tell anything.

I'm a nervous wreck, but I'm trying to stay sober as long as I can.

Again, I predict predictions.


MORE: and now Obama is ahead.

RESULTS:
FLORIDA...
INDIANA...
N CAROLINA...
OHIO...
VIRGINIA...

OBAMA 1,220,130
MCCAIN 1,171,030

I'm not going to be posting blow by blow.

Drink by drink sounds more like it.

MORE: Fox projected SC, WV, TN, for McCain, and projects MA, ME, NH, CT, DC, NJ, and DE for Obama (at least, the boards show him winning, which is no surprise).

I'm noticing that Pennsylvania and Ohio are too close to call -- which is not what the polls have been suggesting.

New Hampshire is called for Obama.

MORE: The overall picture -- especially the popular vote -- is looking closer than the polls predicted.

Considering the apparent poll discrepancies, if Obama wins by a close margin, I hope the Democrats don't act like "sore winners"....

UPDATE (the next morning): Drinking heavily is winning in Glenn Reynolds' poll.

We caught you on PJTV tonight. That was really some excellent commentary, even if that is coming from a sometime collaborator.

Unfortunately Joe Hicks said "Classic" rather than "Classical."

Hi Dennis, glad you liked it! (I was nervous but I guess I can relax now and watch the rest of the election disaster unfold.)

I'm hitting the bourbon. H*ll, d*mn and f*ck. See you in the reeducation camp, comrades. I didn't think this country could be bought on petro dollars and a slavish media. I was wrong.

Our Gameplan and Plan of Action!

This is the original post from obamacrimes.com, it has been moved here so we can get organized.

THIS IS NOT MEANT TO BE ATTACKED BY OBAMITES. IF IT IS, THE POSTER'S IP WILL BE BANNED FROM THE WEBSITE.

SUGGESTIONS FOR IMPROVEMENT ARE WELCOME

The President is NOT OFFICIALLY elected according to the Constitution UNTIL the Electoral College meets to cast their votes, which is Dec 15, 2008. PLEASE STUDY THE LINK PROVIDED SO YOU KNOW WHAT THE ELECTROAL COLLEGE IS AND DOES. MANY POSTS ON BOTH SIDES HAVE BEEN SAID IN IGNORANCE. THIS MUST STOP.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electoral_College_(United_States)#Meetings_of_electors.

We have time but not much time to still force Obama to present the original vault copy and have a team of forensic scientists http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Forensics make scientific tests that are accepted by courts, to insure that the BC was produced on or around 1961 when Obama was born. This would prove to all that Obama was or wasn't a native born American. IMO, all debate, but not all legal action (lawyers want the big bucks involved), should stop by all fair-minded people whether pro or con Obama

Here is the plan:

1. We need at least one Berg supporter from each state (much more hopefully from states with a large number of electoral votes) to volunteer some time and money for postage, printing, etc:(( nothing sent to me) to contact their states Secretary of State (SOS) via fax (keep proof of receipt) or certified Mail, return notice ONLY, asking for the names and contact information of the electors who will vote on December 15th.

IF Obama won in your state, then you ask for the DP Electors. IF McCain won in your state, then ask for the GOP electors. This must be done NLT than Friday, NOV 7th. BE SURE TO KEEP THE RETURN RECEIPTS IN A VERY SAFE PLACE. They may have to be used as evidence in a court action.

2. Contact me Dr. Doug Schell at poppop_schell@hotmail.com with the information that you have contacted your SOS. and I will place it in a spreadsheet to track our progress.

3. Compose a letter TO EACH and EVERY voting Elector asking him/her to seek a court subpoena in his/her local federal court to have the original, vault copy residing in the State of Hawaii made available for study by an independent team of mutually agreed upon, licensed forensic scientists who will independently conduct accepted forensic tests to determine if the BC was actually produced on or around 1961 when Obama was born. This test should not take more than 72 hours and then a report produced by these forensic scientists giving their INFORMED opinion of the validity of the BC. I will have a "form letter" available to use IF you so desire. The report must be done by Dec 1, 2008

4. As soon as you have written all the letters, again ONLY BY CERTIFIED MAIL, WITH PROOF OF DELIVERY, please send me a copy of each letter by regular mail. Keep the return certificate very safe. IT may be needed as evidence in a court case. Don't throw it away for any reason!!! I will record your actions on my spreadsheet.

5. As each answer from your Elector (DON"T WAIT UNTIL ALL ELECTORS RESPOND) is received, please indicate to me that same day via e-mail that this has occurred and I will record it in the spreadsheet. Keep doing this for every letter you receive back.

6. IF an Elector indicates a willingness to bring an action for Subpoena, call me right away at 336-983-7655. I will then pass this on to Phil Berg. I will let every volunteer know we have an Elector. Don't stop your work until all Electors have indicated yes or no. This should motivate you more to get Electors from your state. The more Electors willing to file from a number of different states, the more news coverage will occur.

IF any of you have legal friends who are willing to help us in this cause, please have them call me ASAP.

THIS CAN WORK AND WILL BE OUR LAST CHANCE TO STOP OBAMA. PLEASE BECOME A PART OF HISTORY AND IN DEFENSE OF OUR BELOVED CONSTITUTION.

GOD GRANT US HIS HELP IN THE BATTLE FOR HIS CONSTITUTION. I SEEK THE PRAYERS FOR THIS ACTION TO SUCCEED IF YOU ARE A PERSON OF FAITH.
