Of course I want to know the results of the election.


Geez Louise.

How 'bout all that coverage last night?

Predictions. Projections. 

Enough.

I mean, I want to know who won, but could you just tell me when it's over and not when 30% of the people's votes have been counted?

Seriously. Just tell me when it's over.

Beau is the direct opposite of me. He's quite a news junkie.

He was enthralled all night and flipped back and forth, back and forth ... FOX, then ABC, then FOX, then CBS, then FOX, then NBC, then FOX, then Comedy Central, then FOX.

I fell asleep on the couch and awoke only due to my "pre-sleep kick" (as Beau calls it).

Is something wrong with me? I just don't really care about hearing reporters and analysts and correspondents talk about the election results and what they mean. 

I just want the results. Plain and simple.

Don't cancel my regular programming. Just put who won on a ticker at the bottom of the screen and I'm good. 

I can make my own predictions about what the Republicans gaining the House will be. Come on. We do have common sense.

And, the other thing that irritated me ... the analysts explaining statistics, like how most college-educated women vote Democrat, while blue-collar "waitress-types" vote Republican. Also, I didn't understand that a discussion was even being made about how women do not automatically vote for women when they're running for office ... well, no duh. That's really the way people think women think? ... "Oh, there's a woman running. I'll vote for her despite the fact that I don't agree with anything she stands for." Duh, again.

Oh man, just glad it's over. One of the ads down here made me want to punch the candidate in the face because of his attack of personal issues of another candidate. Candidates just need to stick to politics. What can you do for our state or city? That's what we want to know. I don't want you pulling up everyone's dirty laundry. Just the facts, people. 

Just the facts.

Well said! :) As soon as I found out that they were covering the election and cancelling "Raising Hope"...I went to bed to read.

I say they save a ton of money and give them 1 week to campaign. They can only speak about themselves and what they have to offer!

We are still waiting on the decision on govenor in Illinois. Wish we could make Chicago another state! They kill us EVERY time.
