Well, here we are, folks, at the start of what could be the most important election night of our lives.
I don’t know about you but I am on pins and needles.
Click HERE to visit the CNN site where you can get live updates.
Click HERE to visit the MSNBC site for the same.
Click HERE to visit the Five-Thirty-Eight website.
(I was going to include a link to Fox News, but then I remembered that we only wanted factual reporting, and left it off.)
Unfortunately, we will likely not get closure tonight, as a number of polls quite late and there is guaranteed to be challenges to the results no matter how they skew.
It will be a very long night for most of us, and perhaps a long day tomorrow, and possibly a long week after that.
If you voted today, or earlier this week, thank you.
If you didn’t fuck you and get the hell off my website.
This is not a game, this is for the future of our country, of our families, and or generations to come.
And not one bit of that is hyperbole.
So let’s sit back folks, grab your favorite beverage, and let’s see if our fellow citizens woke up and did the right thing.
Updates are on the way.
Update: Jennifer Wexton has just flipped the 10th district in Virginia to the Democrats.
That is the first flipped seat thus far.
Update 2: Donna Shalala flipped Florida district 27 for the Dems. That is the second House pickup of the night for the Democrats.
Update 3: So far the incumbent Democrats have held onto all of the Senate seats that have been decided for the night. So far.
Update 4: The Republicans have flipped their first Senate seat with Mike Braun defeating Joe Donnelly in Indiana.
Update 5: Here is a little more good news tonight.
Louisville Courier Journal: Kentucky clerk Kim Davis, who went to jail for denying same-sex marriage licenses, loses re-election bid.https://t.co/w7hiKOWu0M

I did not even know that this race was happening, but I am thrilled to see this homophobic bitch get thrown out on her ass.
Update 6: I am losing confidence in Florida. It looks like the Republicans are going to win both the Senate seat and the Governor’s race.
I hope something happens to change that, but I am not optimistic.
Still holding out hope for Beto in Texas, however.
Update 7: Jared Polis is the projected winner in the Colorado governor’s race, first openly gay male to win a governorship in America.
Update 8: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has also won the 14th congressional district in New York, by a huge margin. Not sure that any of us should be surprised by this, however.
Update 9: Kris Kobach, the guy who Trump tapped to run his bullshit voter fraud commission, has lost his bid to be governor of Kansas to the female Democratic candidate. This is big!
Update 10: Heidi Heitkamp has lost her Senate seat in North Dakota. That is a shame.
Update 11: Ted Cruz is projected to beat Beto O’Rourke in Texas. Well, that is just heartbreaking. We had such high hopes.
For the last update of the night, we now know that the Republicans will retain control of the Senate and the Democrats are now projected to gain control of the House.
So yeah, we had a blue wave. It just was not the blue tsunami that so many of us were hoping to see.
But moving forward Trump is going to have a MUCH harder time screwing up this country. I expect the first congressional subpoenas to be issued on the first day that the Dems take control of Congress.
