TeaCo(ra)zy Watch 2010: Vp's Official Election Night Watching Party!

Why, hello there (socio-political) sports fans. Watch this space!

Planning on treating tonight's incoming election results like the spectator sport extravaganza we know and love it to be via coverage on your favorite cable news network? Us too! Be sure to visit this thread today. Often! Your friendly neighborhood editors will be using it to celebrate/commiserate during Velvetpark's Official Election Night 2010 Watching Party.

Reasons to join us:

1) This guy:

2)  Obvs. This is our Superbowl. (Except for you sporty dykes who actually love football. For you this is probs more like the Superbowl's red-headed stepsister. HOT.)

3) C'mon. Do you really need an excuse to spend a night not just with your fellow Parkers, but with Rachel Maddow, too? Maybe this year MSNBC'll let her wear a tie on their teevee machine. Hey, a girl can dream.

4) If, as widely prophesied, the Teabaggers start to successfully win a mini-mob of seats in the House of Representatives, we can just turn the evening into a drinking game. Every time an angry white person with a misspelled protest sign talks about the need for Americans to "love/protect/drastically reinterpret freedom" or complains about socialist health care policy while driving their Medicare-funded motorscooter in figure eights around a reporter, CHUG, CHUG, CHUG!

Lez do it!

At least she didn't spell it "offecal"... but pretty close!

Bleh

Not only do we not yet know who our next Minnesota governor will be, someone mistakenly blamed me for letting Russ Feingold lose in Wisconsin.

People, I just want to make clear that I am not responsible for how the Cheeseheads vote! Hah.

Still searching for the right brainy quote.

I dunno. I think calling it

I dunno. I think calling it half an hour into counting the vote is probs insanely irresponsible.

Lots of people (myself

Lots of people (myself included) voted weeks ago.  And people have been voting all day so it's not like they don't have results just because the polls only officially closed at 8.

I get paranoid about this because I'm still scarred from the all the networks mis-calling the 2000 presidential election trying to beat each other to the punch.  :X

"10:37 ET - Providence, R.I., mayor David Cicilline (pictured below) was elected to become the next openly gay member of the U.S. House of Representatives. He beat Republican John Loughlin with 51% of the vote with 91% of precincts reporting, according to CNN."

On commercials, I'm watching the Portia interview on Oprah, which too is extrememly depressing. I'm a true masochist

I watched that last night! Depressing, yes. But also pretty amazing and inspirational to see how she turned her life around.

In happier news, it sounds

In happier news, it sounds like the polls are predicting a win for Jerry Brown in the CA gubernatorial race. I can take the house thing as long as it's not a Republican/TeaNutbag-controlled house + Whitman as my governor.

I just started watching Palin on Fox. I have no idea what she's talking about, but it's clearly not the election.

i'm weird. i would love to

i'm weird.

i would love to watch her show sometime, but for some reason i haven't. it's like watching the televangelists or listening to conservative christian talk radio. that's my idea of entertainment. ali thinks it's really weird but i have frequently driven from MI to IL listening to crazy talk radio that i completely disagree with. luckily, i've never crashed my car into anything as a result.

Not2Taem's picture

Like that old saying about dirty underware

I would be afraid that I would get in an accident and the radio would still be playing when the hot rescue chick was cutting me out of the car. Talk about crash and burn!

good point.

LOVE!: "10:06 PM — A House

LOVE!:

"10:06 PM — A House loss is still just “likely,” after all this ruckus?
10:08 PM — And what exactly is lost, should the GOP/TeaPee take over the House again? What are they going to do to “get back” at the Democrats, pass a bunch of environmental legislation and climate change legislation and stop the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq?"

Yeah, the new Republican House should end DADT, too. That would reeeally TICK DEMOCRATS OFF.

I'm not sure I want to know.

I'm not sure I want to know.  I'm torn between wanting to keep track & ignoring it all, going to bed and waking up tomorrow to the news.

I won't be able to sleep until I know if we're headed for a Megocracy in CA for the next couple years.

You gotta stay! Are you

You gotta stay! Are you watching on MSNBC? It's entertaining, een if the results are depressing as hell. Misery loves company.

I'm currently not watching

I'm currently not watching any news coverage anywhere.  I'm doing laundry, hanging out here and on Facebook at the same time & downloading the season 2 premiere of The Tester because a friend was a contestant on it (and I watched season 1).  Oh, Wheel of Fortune is on the TV but that's just because I haven't changed the channel since the local news ended. Smile

"I know America is great, not

"I know America is great, not because I read it in a book, but because I have seen it." -Mario Rubio, deriding the "snickers" of all those nasty, America-hating, book-reading people in his acceptance speech.

Let's hear it for the new senator from Florida, ladies and gentlemen!

Don't get my hopes up.

Just heard that msnbc and cnn calling the house a win for the republicans might be a mistake.

Julia Watson's picture

Yeah, I'm confused. On the

Yeah, I'm confused. On the one hand, MSNBC is running banners that say "Republican Control" and on the other, one of the statistical counts they just showed made it look like the Dems still have a considerable lead in the house...

Nevermind. It's the graphic

Nevermind. It's the graphic of the senate seats that I saw before. They just ran it again.

omg Just put away the

omg

Just put away the groceries, turned on MSNBC and one of the first things I learn is that Rand Paul is the projected winner in KY! F*ck the teabaggers! He's the first Tea Party backed candidate to be elected to the Senate. At least Christine O'Donnell is out, but that's not a shocker.

 

Not2Taem's picture

Did I hear that right?

Randy Paul just said, "freedom is best when enjoyed by the most." Did he mean the majority, as opposed to minorities? Maybe I am just hearing everything with jaded ears these days.

Dang, I missed it! I was taking a break, drowing my sorrows with a bottle of wine... I wouldn't be surprised though.
