Well this has been quite the exciting night, hasn't it? A Democratic House and the Senate dangling on two states--VA and MT. I'm off to bed for the evening (well, it's 1:02 am, so morning really) since we won't get the results tonight. Apparently they're doing a recount in Yellowstone County in Montana and don't expect to announce a winner before 8am, and with this exciting race in Virginia--well, with the margin of votes being fewer than 8,000 out of the 2.3 million cast, favoring the Democrat, there will likely be at least one recount. In fact, if the Dems take Montana (which without Yellowstone County, the Democratic candidate has a very small lead), then it will come down to Virginia and potentially a lengthy recount process. Haven't we been here before? You'd think in this day and age we could just actually decide elections once and for all on election day. Alas, that time does not seem to be in the near future.

Kevin had an even more fun day than I did, working the polls. I cannot describe his experience any better than he did here. Go read it--it's very funny.

Also Digory and Scout seem totally unconcerned about these elections. Talk about apathy!
