Good Question

November 3rd, 2004 - 1:02 am

Bush has obviously won the popular vote. If he was “selected not elected” in 2000, then why on Earth would the Dems want to try to put Kerry in via lawsuits in 2004?

“It’s All Over But the Lawsuits”

November 3rd, 2004 - 12:53 am

My Tech Central Station column is up – and in record time, too. Hats off to Editor Supremo Nick Schulz for pulling the Mother of All All-Nighters.

Go read it, now. Doing so will help me buy pretty Christmas gifts for my lovely bride.

One More Night

November 3rd, 2004 - 12:45 am

Sorry for the lame Phil Collins reference, but it’s late and I’m not entirely sober. Actually, I’ve put another big dent in my big bottle of cheap scotch, just in the last two hours.

I mean, a big dent.

That said, I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that Kerry will concede in the next 16-20 hours.

Not a Wrap-Up

November 3rd, 2004 - 12:41 am

While I was putting the finishing touches on my TCS column, results continued to come in. Here they are:

Iowa – Bush up 11,000+.

Hawaii – Kerry by 32,000.

Ohio – Bush by 125,000. (less than circa 30,000 for automatic recount.)

Nevada – Bush winning by 13,000.

New Mexico – Bush winning by 30,000+ (“Game over man, game over!”)

Wisconsin – Kerry up 13,000+.

And no, I’m not going to bed any time soon. Stay tuned.

Edwards is speaking, and it doesn’t sound like he’s setting up Kerry for a concession.

I think I speak for millions of Americans when I say, “Oh, shit.”

Ted Kennedy is with Kerry at his Beacon Hill townhouse, reports Carl Cameron on Fox.

My guess? Ted is telling John to concede gracefully.

But that’s just a guess.

The one blue state I was most certain would turn red this year, looks pretty strong for Kerry. I expect it to be called for Kerry within the hour.

No, I haven’t gone to bed. What kind of wimp do you think I am? But results are coming in a lot slower now, and I’m busy writing a punchy little column for Tech Central Station.

Still, I’m keeping an eye on Ohio and the un-called states.

I’ll Have to Try That Some Day

November 2nd, 2004 - 10:00 pm

Watching from Ukraine, Bruce Bridges writes:

I would like to nominate Dan Rather for managing to interview Karen Hughes and Rudy Guliani back to back as Bush’s victory looms and not only not dissolve into a puddle of tears but actually manage to muster his decades of professional experience to defy every fiber of his being and force a smile.

He then adds that “Dan is more coherent in real-time Russian translation by the way.”
