that Georgia will give us some good news tonight as non-white turnout is supposedly at a record high according to exit polls.

that's why so many newcomers get in when someone retires or dies.

Baucus & Harkin should have run one more time, and then retired in 2016..

audacious one.. There is nothing rational about voting..

The same thinking as when some women continually choose caustic boyfriends..

Just an observation. I gotta say, that hacked me off pretty good. Enough not to go out and vote? Doubt it, but definitely hacked me off.

25. Not a Big Surprise

McConnell turned this into a mud wrestling contest from the beginning. Too much of a negative current for Grimes to overcome. Being called so early means its not close and does not bode well for other contests.

a Democrat who refused to admit she voted for Obama! She says, "Vote for me I am a Democrat but i am too afraid to say if I support the man you Republicans are so viciously attacking! I want to pretend I have nothing to do with him"
Sound like a courageous winning strategy to you?? Or more typical Democratic pussyfooting around in hopes of appeasing the marching bulldogs of the right? The party that has refused to give an inch and the party that not long ago so many here were righting off as dead..

Now lets hear the attacks on my for telling the f*** truth!

With all he's done she couldn't have said mr president come, let's campaign and PREAch To these people all the gods things we've done as Democrats.

She didn't. She lost and P. Obama is still president.

41. I still think she made the right decision...although we knew this is how they would spin it.

I think Alison did the right thing by staying out of the racist politics stirred up by the Republicans. Mitch said Obama was on the ballot. Alison said, "No, it is my name on the ballot". It would probably be easier to beat someone who's not even on the ballot and is very unpopular in your state than it would a strong, independent Kentucky woman, don't you think? She was smart enough to escape their little trap. But evidently, not enough to win? I hope she makes them sweat and does not give a concession speech until every single vote is counted.

and probably won't be turning it on any time soon. Pretty soon they'll be calling my state for that corrupt SOB Nathan Deal for Gov and for Purdue against Michelle Nunn.

Struggling middle-class people screwing themselves yet always voting republican over and over.

People that vote Democratic but don't realize you need to show up every 2 years, not just 4.

I like Obama more than I dislike him but don't believe he deserves the blame for low voter turnout or Dems losing throughout his presidency.

Americans are fucking stupid.
