"There will be weeping there, and gnashing of teeth or something I guess..."
-- Luke 13:28, A Copy Of The Bible I Swiped From A Hotel Room
Hello and welcome to Hair Balls' election night live blog and comment, where tonight I will be chronicling the mania of the 2012 presidential election. It's been a rough past year of mudslinging, yelling, confounding Facebook posts, children's puppets, and all around snark, and some voters didn't even get an "I Voted" sticker today.
Before we begin, be sure to get your drinks handy and have this here bingo card locked and loaded.
What channel should I be watching during this? What is the best cable news team to lead us through this evening? I mean, I probably shouldn't just be watching all of the Big Rich Texas on my DVR, right?
Is CNN cool, or is MSNBC the PC choice? Does C-SPAN still exist? I wish that the History Channel was carrying the election.
I will also be keeping an eye on my Facebook and Twitter feeds and cherry-picking the most hilarious and or maddening posts for all to see as the series finale of the Mitt 'N Barry Show comes to a close. That is the posts from people who I didn't hide from my feed.
Let's do this. Let's keep it clean. You have a Gary Johnson nutjob at the helm tonight.
I put my TV on Fox News because there was a funny commercial on. Whoa, Laura Ingraham looks exactly how I thought she would look. The numbers on their screen are confusing, scary, and yellow and white. There is a feeling of giddiness in their speech. Like it's prom night and they just found an older dude to go to the liquor store for them all.
Oh KPRC Channel 2 is at Democracy Plaza in New York City! Too bad they aren't letting ice-skaters onto that giant ice map. Dominique Sachse's hair isn't as red as it used to be. Sorry, I need to be paying attention to numbers and stuff.
On the local front...
