Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

Midnight Thoughts

It looks like the Ds take the senate. I must have been a bit tipsy when I went against the facts and went with Steele, who didn’t come close. Allen just fell behind after leading all night. MO is impossible, MT very unlikely. The Ds get more than 30 seats in the House; 40 may be in reach. R vote is way down even when they’re winning. Iraq is the main reason, but corruption etc. turned out to be more important than I thought. But all in all it really is a "negative landslide."

UPDATE: 100% of the VA vote is in, and Allen is down 2300. Very, very unlikely that a recount could reverse that. Consider all the dumb things he had to do to lose by so little.

UPDATE 2: It turns out Fox was wrong about 100%. The new story is that 99.26% is in and Allen is down 1700. So it’s not quite over.

Webb’s lead apparently increased overnight, as he now seems to be nearly 8,000 votes ahead of Allen. I honestly don’t know what a recount could accomplish. If Allen really needs every single vote from every single district hand-recounted in front of witnesses from both parties, he should be granted it. I won’t, nor will anyone I know, be going the "stop-the-recount" Brooks Brothers riot route. A stylish group, sure, but such tacky behavior.
