GOP candidates henceforth will be equipped with a special device during campaigns.

Whenever their mouths begin to form the word "rape", the device will deliver a powerful and painful electrical shock, paralyzing the candidate for several seconds.

One of the reasons Trump is so pissed:

It just occurred to me that one of the reasons Trump is so pissed off is because he figured his critical endorsement would buy him the ability to pop in and out of the White House and use it to pimp his horrible shows and ego. "Me big important man, friend of President who take advice from ME."

Now the best he can do is show up to a WH Correspondent's Dinner and have President Obama give him noogies on national TV again.

What is the justification for counting Miami-Dade taking so long?

When entire STATES bigger than that were counted in far less time?

Hey Krauthammer, Fox and GOP: know who has even LESS mandate than Obama?

Mitt fucking Romney! And Paul Ryan, Sheldon Adelson, the Koch Brothers, and Karl Rove.

I am in utter awe of Axelrod and Plouffe.

This, I am pretty sure, is easily the most brilliantly run campaign I've seen in my lifetime.

The strategy of this team, and the incredible incredible work done by all the workers and volunteers in implementing it, almost defies the imagination.

Just think, every ounce of that GOTV was needed in OH, FL, and VA, and was almost enough in NC.

I think this was a much harder slog than 2008 because there was no anti-Bush wave to ride, and a difficult economy, and record amounts of GOP cash.

Every battleground won but NC. It is an awesome achievement, especially under the circumstances.

For those of you who worked, called, knocked doors, you are the entire difference (aside from the candidates, heh), and were worth more than hundreds of millions of shitty SuperPAC dollars. Thank you.

Nate Silver, Sam Wang and aggregate poll analysis won big.

And Axelrod is fucking Sherman, Grant and Robert E. Lee rolled into one.

Pennsylvania Voting and ID Question: Are Poll Workers REQUIRED to ask for ID?

I know that ID is not required for this election as a result of court decisions.

I also know that even though this is true, the GOP state government decided to get as much voter suppression as they could out of the law anyway by running ads that could easily be misunderstood as saying ID was needed even after the court decision.

I'm assuming that the purpose of this was to cause some people who didn't know about the law being blocked to not show up to vote because they never were able to get the ID.

I know it's not against the law for poll workers to ask for ID today even though you don't have to show it. Apparently they are asking for ID, but are they actually REQUIRED to ask for it, and are asking everyone?

I guess what I'm getting at is, if you are voting in PA, you don't need the ID, and it's a good idea to make it clear to everyone in line with you that this is the case.
