Well folks,it's election night,and here at Mudcat Election 2000 HQ we are watching the results closely.So far,it's a barn-burner.The count at this time is Bush 121 electoral votes,Gore 119, and Gore has captured the key state of Florida.Big Mick has also apparently delivered Michigan for Gore. Stay tuned,and we look forward to hearing from all correspondents!

Glad to see you got the place set up, LeeJ. Nice bunting. Did you remember the noise makers? Anyone setting up the drinks?

Not heard a word, here, yet, about Wyoming, but with only 3 electoral votes and given its penchant for the Grand Oil Party, I go on record, stick my neck out, dive right in and predict that Dumbya will take Wyoming, to my chagrin!

That may be true Kat,and I'm predicting Bush/Cheney take Colorado as well.So far the big surprise to me is Florida,and I think Gore owes a big debt to Banjer and Harpgirl for their excellent grassroots work in that pivotal state.

Thanks,Mick.That's Michigan correspondent Big Mick,who played a key role in creating the Michigan Gore lead. Alabama has gone Bush,and he has increased his lead to 130 to 119.

We are also interested in local referendums and Senate/Congressional races.Here in Colorado,legalized use of marijuana is a high profile issue.I voted for it,although I think patients who are prescribed marijuana should also get free milk and cookies as part of the deal.

That would be two votes for medical marijuana from the Great State Of Colorado. Except I said I thought chocolate fondue should be a part of the treatment.

Watching avidly on CNN-online, listening to NPR -- what I get for not having television. I could get results AND have those familiar homicidal feelings come back as I listen to the tele-twits narrating all night long...

Fingers and toes crossed that MY Guy wins ...

The Governor of Wisconsin just said he was sure his state would go for Bush. Had the gall to be gleeful about it!

Miriam, there is a famous Mudcat song, written by our own Amos, tongue-in-cheek, about men's dangly bits, i.e. "pickles" glowing at night. It's been heard on Mudcat radio often and you can read it by going to the Quick Links, choose Aine's Mudcat Songbook and go from there.

Yes, Minnesota has been declared for Gore. I got carried away in my mode of expression.

Polls in CA don't close until 11 PM. They're not supposed to release the results of exit polls until then.

Robb just conceeded to Allen in VA. I'm no fan of Robb, but I hate to see the Dem's lose a seat, and I hate to see another electric-chair fan get into the Senate. Speaking of seats.

saumurer de concombre

Concombre is actually cucumber. "Cornichon" is a small pickle (gherkin). We could say Saumurer de concombre au vinaigre.

Now wait a minute, "saumure" is brine.

Dimmer is "variateur d'ambiance" - or "plus bouché."

Thanks for helping me find "Your Pickle Glows at Night." Now I'll need to look up the tune so I can sing it to Tim.

To celebrate Gore's victory - or to comfort ourselves should the unthinkable happen.

The Floridians are a bunch of wusses! I'm standing in the surf fairly close to Japan at the moment Leej,. and from here it definitely looks like there's a Bush burning going on over there in round-eyesville. Lights up the whole Pacific Rim. Californians are turning out by the platoon to right the silliness of newscasters who try to swing elections by juggling their predictions. We feel this will be a ferocious contest with ultimate justice as the shadow of Voting Day moves slowly into the Western wetlands. Of course, as the bishop said to the actress, that all depends on whose Bush gets Gored.

"Saumuré" is pickled in brine. So we can have "le variateur d'ambiance du concombre suamuré" or "le conconbre au vinaigre plus bouché" - but that sounds a bit too lewd. I don't post stuff like that on the internet.

I wake myself up during the night to check for a migraine. The radio blared at 4 AM that Gore had retracted his concession. Florida must recount.

I took a shot for my migraine.

I can't stand the tension, but giving up hope would be worse.

Where are y'all?

No real sleep last night. Up and down and every time I got a different report. The New York Post published a lovely red headline announcing "Bush Wins" then changes it to "Gore Changes His Mind" or some such nonsense. Now they are talking about a few thousand Gore votes in Florida accidentally credited to Buchanan by faulty machines and Joy Behar is claiming that the CIA under orders from former head George Bush has interfered with the vote in Florida. ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ I need sleep.

Something else, eh folks? First off, stop this crazy shit about puking and leaving. I have been in this thing since January, but this is electoral politics. If the Governor wins, he does so on one of the absolute slimmest margins ever, and probably not with the popular vote. To all of you who bitch and piss and moan about the dear old US of A, let me ask you a question. In many countries if the margin were this close one would be concerned about armed insurrection. Our amazing democracy has allowed this great Republic to pass the torch on (arguably) the most powerful chair to sit in in the world in a peaceful way. What will happen, will happen. It has been an amazing ride and the answer is a day or two away. If Dubya wins, then it is incumbent on those of us who are part of the loyal opposition to be there enunciating the differences in our positions and approaches. We all provide the stability and vitality of the system. Anyone who would leave instead of staying and carrying on just doesn't get representative democracy.

Maybe, Mick, but it gets damn tiring. After eight years of Congress fucking around and blocking anything Clinton tried to do for the people, it's hard to keep hope alive. Of course, Wyoming exacerbates this so perhaps I'l feel better about it next Spring when we finally get the hell out of here.

I am however just busting buttons over pride for Hillary! What a womon!!

You are, of course, correct Mick. I woke up this morning knowing that even if Ralph Nader pulled off the impossible and won the election, I would have a secure job, safe home, food on the table, and a normal life. I'm concerned about the long term effects our new president will have on the make up of the Supreme Court but life in the US will go on pretty much as usual. In that, we are blessed. I am staying.

No one was really prepared for Gore winning the popular vote and losing the electoral.......and Florida seems to be only a couple of thousand difference!....

Mick is right, of course....we will keep on keeping on......but if Bush wins this, the REAL winners will be the political cartoonists!

If Bush wins the real winners will be the oil companies, and the pharmaceutical companies, and the HMO's, and the heavily polluting industries, and the land-denuding timber companies, and so forth.

The losers will be the environment, the poor, and the middle-class.

Welcome to the 1980's, mark II.

Sadly, Ol' Spaw had to do a little hosp time and my biggest regret was not being here to play with the "Mudcat Talking Heads!" One helluva' race!

I think its also true that no one in the office of president at this point will be able to get anything too radical through the Congress. Its Republican, by the slimmest of margins, making it incumbent on all of us as Mick has said to voice our opinions even louder. There won't be much passed without a fight.

Gawd, I'm glad to be back and seeing all these responses. I particularly dislike both Ashcroft and Danforth from Missouri and to see Ashcroft beaten by Carnahan's wife was quite fulfilling. Sorry about Ohio, but this is the home of Taft Republicanism even though we have often gone with Democratic Senators. The presidential race was much closer here than most figured.

From what I've been hearing over the last 2 days, election fraud in Florida is a way of life. It's just unfortunate for the perpetrators that the national attention is focused on them right now.
