I will be liveblogging the election returns tonight beginning at 6:00 PM Central Standard Time. Pre-election polls indicate this should be a good election for the Republicans, we shall see. The main contest tonight will be in the Senate. If the Republicans take it, President Obama might as well go on a vacation for the rest of his term as far as passing legislation is concerned. Perhaps he will learn how to compromise and work with Republicans in order to craft legislation for the good of the nation. (Ah, a little levity at the beginning of a live blog is always a good thing!) As usual your contributions in the combox will be invaluable. See you tonight! Continue reading
So the day has arrived at last. Our political adversaries are not orcs, but I must say I have been waiting for this day through four long years, and I am as eager to vote against Obama and his party as the Rohirrim were eager to smash the army of Sauron at Minas Tirith. This is our live blog for this election day and night. All contributors to TAC are welcome to post on it. Passions no doubt will be running rather high today, and I will be attempting to keep these words of Abraham Lincoln in mind:
I thank you, in common with all others, who have thought fit, by their votes, to indorse the Republican cause. I rejoice with you in the success which has, so far, attended that cause. Yet in all our rejoicing let us neither express, nor cherish, any harsh feeling towards any citizen who, by his vote, has differed with us. Let us at all times remember that all American citizens are brothers of a common country, and should dwell together in the bonds of fraternal feeling.
