    Kept it there? that was never a law that applied to a majority of states much less all of them.

    Wow, that could be a big one.

    If they vote for statehood, I wonder what would happen in Congress. It's not quite like DC (which I kinda think that they should just append to Maryland although it would cost the Democrats 2 presidential votes).

    It's exciting without a doubt.

    Personally I am surprised that DC statehood was not a top priority for the Obama administration. DC has pretty consistently drafted state constitutions and brought up statehood in the House.

    Adkin's campaign did provide a first for me: An election-eve robocall attacking the Libertarian candidate. (Honestly, I thought I didn't recognize the name, I thought they were talking about a different state's candidate!).

    I saw a part of that live melt-down. When it became clear Akin was still campaigning, my wife hit the mute button.

    Dude. Christ.

    I've been watching fox news coverage, facebook, and youtube reactions. I didn't know people were this insane. Not joking, it really reminds me of the atmosphere of September 11th 2001, just after the attacks when people on the radio were calling for nuclear strikes. That aura of panic was perhaps justified due to an actual attack occurring on our soil; but this was just the political process that we've all grown up under occurring. If those people were a single audience, I'd say "We lost an election. Okay. We'll get 'em next time, calm the hell down."

    I know it's disappointing, I'm disappointed too, but these guys have lost their damn minds. It's not funny.

    I have satellite (it's really not that expensive via Dish anyway). I was playing with the new iPad my wife's work gave her, so I saw HuffingtonPost call it first, than Stewart.

    Obama won the popular vote. My faith in this country has been restored. FORWARD baby.

    Looking to the future baby. Education, public health, equal rights.

    Now maybe the real republicans can take back the GOP so we can have real political discourse again

    man, so many are so optimistic about a party that shows no sign of being more reasonable. they've been taken over by folks that have made them stay true to their platform and rhetoric.
