Stories to Watch: 11/1/10

Tomorrow's the big day. Keep your fingers crossed and, whatever happens, it's not the end of the world. This democracy thing is a work in constant progress (and sometimes regress), so it never creates a finished product. Don't go home; get back to work, because you're never done. Of course, if you want to get hammered on tequila shooters first, that's probably a good idea too. Now here's the news...

ABC's decision to include Andrew Breitbart in their election night coverage turns out to be a huge headache, because Andy's an ass. Here's hoping that they find him to be more trouble than he's worth in the future.

In case you were wondering where your fucking polling place is, you can find it here.

Politico reports that Sarah Palin is about to be thrown under the bus, because there's a real danger she could win a Republican presidential primary and hand reelection to Obama on a silver platter. This is bad PR, so top Republican presidential prospects -- i.e., her competition -- line up to say, "No, no, no. I totally want Sarah to be president!" Except, of course, they don't. They want to be president.

Jeb Bush says something true. "The looming victories for Republican candidates next Tuesday is not a validation of the Republican Party at all." Scott Rasmussen agrees (although, while making some crazy arguments). Don't expect the GOP to get the message.

Who could blame a newly-minted Independent Lisa Murkowski for being squishy on caucusing with Republicans? Maybe she's keeping her options open.

Colorado gubernatorial hopeful Tom Tancredo wants war with Islam. What's it take to have someone committed in Colorado? Anyone know?

Finally, Steve Benen will not miss Evan Bayh. I'll drink to that.
