6. Thanks for nothing Jenk- Frank tries to start a positive thread
and you just piss all over it.

Today everyone was positive what is all this negative crap tonight, is everyone drinking the media kool-aid?

2. i'm with you

If I took Drudge's word on anything, I'd be as wrong as he very often is...

Barring any proof to the contrary, I'm optimistic!

3. If the votes were fairly counted I'd agree. I just don't know how much of
a Repuke take-over has occurred in CA regarding computerized voting machines.

4. I think we're going to see a repeat of Florida 2000
I hope I'm wrong, but the signs are all there. The Repugs are going to keep doing this kind of thing all over the country because nobody's stopping them. :mad:

8. I'm afraid you're right....
there are going to be THOUSANDS of complaints about the lack of polling places. Expect Jesse Jackson, the ACLU and others to start filing suits as early as tomorrow.

11. What CNN and the others are doing is disgraceful
Here in Canada we have a law that does not permit the networks to make these announcements that the election has been decided until after the polls have closed....What I'm hearing is absolutely disgusting! They were announcing Arnold has won a couple of hours ago with the polls open for 3 more hours....

13. Sadly I disagree...however
Sadly I disagree however tomorrow morning a new mission will be upon us. The recall of Arnold...

All indications I have say that the money will be there and of course the will is there. Many, many bitter, bitter victims tonight.

The State of California has been hijacked by the neocon bastards of the GOP.

This WILL NOT STAND!!!

23. I Refuse!
Anyone can refuse to accept an election result they don't like, but what's the point? Is railing against reality an effective political technique? Will it help in 2004 to deny what is happening in 2003?

27. We have 4 minutes to see if you are right or not
4 more minutes and we find out who the governor is. I will say right now, I'm going to flip if Camejo somehow wins. While I did vote for him, he has a snowball's chance of pulling it off.

28. Actually I think
the winner of the Gov's race in California might actually end up being the loser. The people will demand more then any one Gov can do and will probably lose their job on the next election.

Maybe I'm suppose to be fearful if Arnold wins, but I'm not. Like Bush, hes not that bright, thinks he can do more then he can and the people again will be pissed. Actually Arnold bet his whole future on this election, Hollywood and all and I don't think that was a smart thing for him to do. Should have stayed with the day job.

30. I share the same opinion
"Tis gonna be a long night. And I'm one tired puppy now. So I doubt that I can hang on.

Arnold is going down!

Dems are kicking ass on c-span (house dems, live)

Cubs & Marlins are tied at six all in the 7th.
