Today is Election Day and most of what we have written about since 2007 will be tested.
We’ll know tonight.
As the month progresses will see how our “pull the band-aid off quickly” strategy develops. Is it better to undergo decades of painful lesser losses in order to return to the winning FDR/Hillary Clinton coalition? Or is it better to to yank the bandage off quickly – death doom and destruction for the Obama Dimocratic Party in 2010 so that the Democratic Party of old can be resurrected and the winning FDR/Hillary Clinton coalition reconstructed quickly? We believe the death doom destruction strategy is the way to go. Our strategy has the added benefit of punishing swiftly the treacherous “leadership” who gifted Obama the nomination.
There are several things we do know for sure.
1. The Republican Party adapted with aplomb to the historical moment.
Republican candidates include many women, at least three soon to be powerful Latino/as, a bunch of African-American candidates, another Indian-American governor, lots of young candidates, and another Vietnamese congressional candidate.
We’ll also see half of the 2012 Republican ticket get elected tonight.
2. The Obamination Party has a proven record of selling out women, racial animus towards minority candidates who are Republicans (see the Sanchez race), continuous race-baiting and lurid sexism and misogyny (see O’Donnell).
We also know what a vapid creature Barack Obama is. On this crucial day Obama interviews with American Idol host Ryan Seacrest. Perhaps this is his way of auditioning for a post 2012 American Idol panel job.
We also know what a cowardly creature Barack Obama is. Knowing of the pending destruction of all the idiots who believed him when he said “this time you have me” (you know we’ll have much more of this pearl of a statement in the next two years) Obama reset his schedule to flee the country this Thursday.
Obama Dimocrats will be losing their jobs as elected officials, lobbyists, or staff and they will be in great pain and looking for jobs. The wounded Obamorans will be shell-shocked and desperate for leadership. Barack Obama will be on a luxurious junket.
As to that luxurious junket let no one forget Obama’s insults directed at the Punjab and Hillary Clinton.
We also know that Sarah Palin is now a political force of nature. Tonight is indeed a triumph for the Palin Rogue wave which will take down many Dimocratic ships.
Just before the election returns come in we will post a new article so we can all comment on what is happening. We’ll have lots of updates.
The first polls will close and the first batch of answers will begin to come in at 6:00 p.m. ET:
“How to spot a GOP wave on Election Night: Watch the early races in IN-9, GA-8, and KY-6… [snip]
Polls close completely at 7:00 pm ET in five states with a handful of key races: Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, South Carolina, and Virginia. (And we’ll begin to see returns in Indiana at 6:00 pm ET, when many polling places close in the state.) Let’s start with IN-9, which has become the quintessential swing district because Rep. Baron Hill (D) lost the seat in ’04, but won it back in ’06 and was re-elected in ‘08. This race is No. 42 in our House rankings — right about the number the GOP will need to take back the House (because Dems will likely pick up two to four seats). So if this race is called for Hill’s challenger, Tea Party-backed Todd Young, you know it’s going to be a good night for the GOP.
Looking at IN, GA, and KY: Another place to watch is GA-8, because if Republicans are winning it, they could very well be on their way to a gain of 50-plus seats. Rep. Jim Marshall (D) won that district with just 51% in 2006 and 57% in ‘08. The other early House contest to watch is in KY-6, which could forecast a big GOP tidal wave if Republicans are winning it — or are even running close. The congressman representing that district is Ben Chandler (D), who won his previous contests with 65% (in ’08) and 85% (in ’06). Other races to watch in that first hour: GA-2, IN-2, SC-5, VA-2, VA-5, VA-9, and VA-11. And closing at 7:30 are the key races in North Carolina (NC-2, NC-7, NC-8, NC-11), in Ohio (OH-1, OH-6, OH-13, OH-15, OH-16, OH-18), and in West Virginia (WV-1, WV-3). If Republicans are winning a majority of these 20 races, say hello to Speaker John Boehner.”

Some quick news appetizers on this day:
The TelePrompTer will hold a news conference tomorrow morning before flying off to have POTUS embarrass America. Perhaps someone will ask him about his jabs at East-Asian Americans and those from the Punjab.
Unhinged race-baiters roam the streets. Barack Obama has done nothing but provide misery for African-Americans but some don’t get that simple fact.
Whatever happens tonight, the era of Barack Obama is over. We respectfully disagree with usually “brilliant” thinkers that don’t understand this. The Obama era lasted a few seconds until he bungled the oath of office – from there is was a bungle-fest. His entire government fell apart right from the very beginning with the stimulus and by May it was clear Bungles was in trouble. By Tea Party Summer, it was clear Bungles was a catastrophe for America and the Dimocratic Party.
Today is a referendum on Barack Obama – the era of Barack Obama is over.
Yup, the era of Barack Obama is over and it appears that some donors want him to know it:
“Key donors have told the White House that the president should decide for certain whether he’s running for re-election by the end of December. Should Mr. Obama’s approval ratings slip further next year, there’s talk that some donors may call on him not to run, or promote an independent candidacy by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
It could go further. Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell, a former chairman of the Democratic National Committee, told MSNBC in July that a primary challenge to Mr. Obama “is really possible,” especially if he were to go back on his pledge to begin withdrawing U.S. troops from Afghanistan next year.”
Today is not the day for this discussion but bookmark the 1992 race when Harkin took down George H.W. Bush then Bill Clinton won the election. We could also get into the weeds and discuss Bobby Kennedy and Gene McCarthy, but that would be inappropriate for today.
Anybody wonder why Hillary Clinton is 9000 miles away and saying about Obama “I think he was a little envious that I am here.”?
More to come on this Election Day.
