The polls are closed in Alabama.  Cheers, jeers, tears ... post 'em if you've got 'em.

Some resources for those of you watching returns from the comfort of your own keyboards:



Fox6 in Birmingham




CBS election results

Buzzfeed, A viewer's guide to who will win

Bellwether counties for the presidential race.

And finally, I would never say it, but the Ragin' Cajun explains why he believes "the ass-whuppin' cometh."

Isn't Shelby up for re-election next? (4.00 / 5)
When will he be running again and is there anyone who could credibly challenge him? Going over the ballot prior to the election I was terribly disappointed at all of the races where there was no Dem opposition to the repubs. I'm a firm believer in Howard Dean's strategy that there be a challenger in each and every race.

Sessions is up in 2014 (4.00 / 2)
Shelby just got a new 6 year term in 2010.  More is the pity.

Work harder and work smarter!

Romney can't win (4.00 / 3)

 Right now, Romney hasabout as much chance of winning as someone buying one lottery ticket and hitting the jackpot.

 +2 for the good guys in the Senate. (at this hour)

 All in all a good day for Democrats. No 3-4 million dirty air jobs so it's a good day for the whole planet.

October 2012 was the 332nd consecutive month with a global temperature above the 20th century average. The last month with below-average temperature was February 1985. - N.O.A.A.

4 more years (4.00 / 3)
Thank you, America!

Work harder and work smarter!

ok... so who was watching Fox News (4.00 / 2)

during the Karl Rove/Ohio meltdown?

Best time I've EVER had watching Fox.

"The modern conservative is engaged in one of man's oldest exercises in moral philosophy; that is, the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness."  - John Kenneth Galbraith

a "classy campaign?" (4.00 / 2)
Fox just called colorado for Obama. And now the analysts are just bumfuzzled.... Direct quote: "Romney ran a classy campaign.... and ultimately came up short."

I swear I'm not making that up.

Good day overall (4.00 / 3)
President Obama is relected and the Democrats gained 3 seats in the US Senate.  I'm just worried about Alabamians decision to bring back Roy Moore.  That is a nightmare.

"Hypocrites are those whom pick and choose prejudices while giving accolades for their own..."

"It is what it is."  


Time (4.00 / 4)
Now is the time to start thinking about 2014 and finding viable candidates to run against the repubs.

Well, you will be waiting for awhile (0.00 / 0)
The mentality of anti-diversity, anti-female, and anti-progression has gained steam.  This is the reason why regression continues with Alabama's policy and decisionmaking. 

"Hypocrites are those whom pick and choose prejudices while giving accolades for their own..."

"It is what it is."

Romney's concession speech (4.00 / 3)

He did an excellent job with it and I am really glad that he had an opportunity to give such a fine one.

We need more viable Democratic in Alabama. I do not think that we have one statewide elected Democratic. Lots of room for improvement. 

Guffaw of the evening (4.00 / 2)

On the web news pages:

"Romney preparing victory speech."
