Stories to Watch: 11/3/10

Sometimes you get the bear and sometimes the bear gets you, huh? After Feingold lost last night, I figured the smartest thing to do was to get good and drunk. I'm pretty sure I succeeded, because most people who wake up this hungover and sad probably do it in a jail cell. Still, I regret nothing. As Russ himself said, "It's on to our next fight. It's on to our next battle. It's on to 2012! And it's on to our next adventure. Forward!" Now here's the news...

That Feingold concession speech has some people wondering if Russ might take a shot at the presidency in 2012. I would be so torn and I think it's probably a bad idea anyway. Still, one of those people who are wondering is Bill Kristol, so it's probably got "wrong" written all over it. He's probably just talking about Democrats in general. I'm actually hoping for a governor or state attorney general run in 2014. He'd be the best AG in the nation, no contest.

Check out Wonkette's list of candidates who got fewer votes than Alvin Greene, because it's weird. Wish Jim DeMint was on that list. Alvin may be screwy, but DeMint is screwier.

Also weird; Christine O'Donnell declares victory in her concession speech. Best YouTube comment comes from user jeezychreezy1, who writes, "Your Jedi mind tricks do not work here."

A couple of items you'll find in my twitter feed: "A New Hampshire voter makes a difference" and "Best. Comment. Ever." They ought to cheer you up a little bit.

It's National Sandwich Day and that means free sammiches. Damn, do I love this town.

Carl Paladino is one scary lunatic. Is he actively trying to be compared to Mussolini? Also, a teabagger yells, "Sucession!" during Carl's concession speech -- this is taking sore-loserism to a whole new level.

Michele Bachmann wants to run for a leadership position in the GOP. Who do I have to sleep with to make sure this happens? She squirrellier than a walnut grove and would drive the party straight off a cliff. On the other hand, maybe giving a dangerously insane person more power is a bad idea. I'm going to have to cogitate on that one for a spell.

Just in case it's not obvious by now, John Boehner cries a lot.

Sharron Angle's concession speech was long, rambling, and strange.

Finally, a record number of openly lesbian and gay candidates won last night, believe it or not. That's better than fervently anti-immigrant candidates did. Weird night.
