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).
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: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.
RESULTS: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.
