Just got up from about two and a half hours of sleep — must get ready for BBC soon. Things were looking hopeful when I dozed off, and of course are looking very good now. Assuming current trends hold, this election is better than 2000. Best news, of course, is Bush. GOP also wins second-biggest contest of the night in South Dakota (again, assuming trends hold). So what’s the most disappointing loss of the night? I would have to say Coors in Colorado. He and his family have done so much for conservatives over the years, I really wish he could have gotten this win. But if you had told me days ago that Coors would be the most disappointing result of the night, I would have jumped for joy. And if you had told me that hours ago — like on my train ride home, when those afternoon exit polls had compelled me to write down a list of reasons for why Kerry defeated Bush — I just wouldn’t have believed it. Will be keeping my fingers crossed for a while, but right now this is a good, good, good feeling.
