the first results are in.
i know it doesn't mean he's won yet, but i really don't like to see oven chips up in front.
big screen and booze in the bar...
why everyone's making a night of it I don;t know...but its somehow the done thing!
but only because im awake anyway
Can BO Athletic put away a few more goals before full time?
its fair game so far.
8 - 3 in the first 10 minutes.
hanging about in the six yard box like a bad smell.
BO Athletic misses the net by an inch! What a stinker!"
Foul BO, Athletic free kick
when do we find out the results of the others?
I'm figuring out how to follow this with no tv, no radio & a shit internet connection :(
we'll keep you updated.
until about 2am.
need to get up for work..
might switch to bbc online at some point
I'm already drunk and I've not even had a cigar yet.
To be serious, I am nervous. Am I over-estimating how crushing it'll be if Obama is cheated? Did anyone hear Dimbleby say that Arnie just now said that McCain can still win?
Does anybody want McCain win? Don't link me - chat now.
we bought "President's Chardonnay" in the Co-op earlier.
It'll be okay, yeah?
those were expected man! though its making me uneasy to see mccain in the lead.
I thought this as soon as I started seeing people wearing those National t-shirt with "Barack Obama - Mr. November" on them.
If you aren't at least this excited and staying up this late when the UK election comes round, you are a huge fraud and don't deserve to be allowed to vote.
I've said my piece many times, but if you're going to have an interest in this US election, you need to take an interest in the politics at home, which will affect you far more than whoever is placed on the pedestal over in the mighty US of A. I love America, but please, for you own sakes, take interest in what goes on here. We're not toytown, there's a great deal of exciting and important and vital political debate here as well.
is not true
I just like making BO Athletic jokes.
if i'm starting work at 5pm when the next UK election comes round, maybe i'll stay up
also, this election doesn't have the feeling of being a done deal, which i suspect the next UK election might
and can recant his life story from writ.
I'd like to see them do the same for someone a little closer to home and a little more important. Eulogising someone else's leader is not only fucking sad, but also irresponsible. We're not part of America, so let's not all act like we are. And I include the media and especially the flaming BBC in this criticism.
than Brown or Cameron ever could be.
Most people on here should be curious and smart enough to see through that kind of spin. They see through it at home, but in the land of the free, spin mysteriously turns into presentation. Odd, isn't it?
You could argue we have a more self aware political system than the States. In fact, I would.
I've been quite disturbed by the whole Obama Cult of Celebrity thing. It seems like they don't really care, deep down, about any of the so called changes he might bring, but that everyone seems to be getting carried away by the possibility of him becoming the first black President. Even Obama. The way he carries himself doesn't seem to be like someone running to become the most powerful man in the world, but like a celebrity.
In the States, everything is glamourised, but Britain has a more cynical view. Probably why people here are saying "It's a dead cert that the Tories will get in", but everyone is blinded and convinced that Obama will win, that the good guy will out.
I lost track of what I was typing for a second, but I went with it. Yeah? Yeah!
in the rest of the world because he's a break from Bush and Republicans
i hope he wins, but i've tried to stay at arms length from the arse-licking
I think most of the people here take an active interest in UK politics. That is a given for most, surely. Let's not get sidelined about the REPUBLICAN FRAUD!!!!
but I think you're forgetting about OBAMA *swoons* *collapses* *has lucid dreams of the democratic presidential candidate performing CPR despite my standard heterosexuality*.
is fascinating and polarising in a completely unique way, and lends itself to drama and addiction in a way that British politics doesn't necessarily do. Hence the apparent enthusiasm gap that we're seeing. But yes, the next British election is going to be hugely important and I've got no doubt I'll be up late for that too.
a bit of nationalism wouldn't be a terrible thing in this country. Everyone seems to be ashamed of being here and being in Europe, and ashamed of their political system. Which is wrong.
I'm not sure I've noticed people being ashamed of our system, it's just that people who wouldn't normally get excited about politics in this country have got drawn into this one because of the immense media coverage and the potentially epochal nature of the election. And I think it might even have a knock-on effect in the form of increased interest in British politics and the next election here.
it can't compare really as we don't have OBAMA.
That doesn't really make sense. And why would someone be bothered about an election that affects them less than their own?
They're airheads. They do my fucking nut in.
I don't know how old you were, but I remember staying up until 5am as a 17 year old with my whole family, listening to the cheers from the neighbours' houses as Tory minister after Tory minister fell.
Hell, the phrase, "Were you up for Portillo?" passed into folklore as a result of the night.
Personally, I've stayed up for every one since, but this election is like 1997 in that it has captured the imagination.
Fox news anchors crying fat tears into schwarzenegger's tits.
a political analyst, is he? Bless.
is our ricky.
I really can't afford to stay up beyond two, but I'm not sure anything significant will have really occurred by then.
watch out for the early results which might give an indication on how it will go, Virginia, North Carolina and Indiana especially - but then if results are close it might be a while till they disclose the outcome so its pretty difficult to guess!
They're doing a combined hour long show at 3am our time which should be fantastic, I'll put up the link if anyone's interested.
I salute you sir.
as the stereotype would have us believe.
I've realised my mp3 player has a radio, so I'm concocting some kind of system with my computer speakers - can someone pls recommend a radio station that has decent coverage? Tanx x
Turns out it's FM only... I assume Radio 4 is covering it? What frequency is that? Ta
(p.s. i wasn't correcting you, i was being suggestive)
That I'm going to travel to America and melt him?
i heard you have that ability.
There's alot of meltings down my way
that sounds like a dessert. i'll have a plate of chips and a whore melt please.
Historic Presidential Election - some shit about melting
"Oh gee, I'll be able to take the kids to hockey practice in a limousine. Isn't that exciting?"
And her coiffered hockey brats
and preserve her? shes hot.
Palin will turn into a dark sorceress from another dimension, melting McCain with lazer blasts from her eyeballs, then she'll ascend as Empress. Chilling.
has far too much information at his disposal? And where the fuck is Peter Snow?
Eating snow...and melting McCain
I think Marcel Desailly should be on the scene to lend his characteristic brilliant perception to the issues as well
Very bad news for McCain if those trends are seen in other states that went red in 2004.
255,326 to McCain
237,920 to Obama currently...
Kerry? What. Joke post?
For instance, as reported on FiveThirtyEight.com:
Steuben: Kerry 34%, Obama 42%
DeKalb: Kerry 31%, Obama 38%
Knox: Kerry 36%, Obama 54%
Marshall: Kerry 31%, Obama 50%
If these are repeated across the state, then it's not unlikely he'll be able to take it from McCain.
He's doing more than he needs to do (by some projections) - and the votes that are yet to come are more likely to be black and working class, groups which will favour Obama this election cycle.
mccain - 'my friends'- don't fucking use that phrase again, ok!?
GO OBAMA YAY!
although it'd be nice for some blue states to start coming in!
if that holds, it's a big get.
shut up you harpie, I don't care about how you're so important you got to interview McCain.
Go here for the BBC coverage: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/americas/us_elections_2008/7700298.stm
Go to Crevecoeur's myspace and cue up their track, La Pieuvre: http://www.myspace.com/wearecrevecoeur
When Larry Sabato starts talking about polls and the impending Republican downfall, tab back and press play.
Bravo! You have just imagined yourself as Godspeed You! Black Emperor's producer.
The BBC's Lisa Mitchell at the US Embassy in London says she's spotted UK former Transport Secretary Ruth Kelly with her arm around a cardboard cut-out of Obama. It seems the crowd there will do anything to fill time waiting for the big result.
still no suprises.
It's like Battlefield bloody Earth
BARACK OBAMA PLAYED BY CUBA GOODING JR.
though when he's older he'll definitely be Morgan Freeman.
Nobody is Freeman! Nobody could ever hope to be Freeman. It should be Morgan Freeman, President of the United States of America
blues club. It was on imagine. It looked brilliant. He goes and dances. I think it is in Clarkesdale in a real shitty bit. I could be wrong.
A wise cracker who sits on the porch all day long *IRONY ALERT*
THERE, I SAID IT.
i'd do her.
I feel dirty and ashamed.But yup
projections to follow.
Pennsylvania's coming up and essential for McCain if he wants to win.
Florida, New Hampshire, Pennslyvania - closed but no info yet. They're the most interesting!
is currently going apeshit right now.
update: obama won my home state, new jersey.
update: holy shit, obama has 103 electoral votes already.WOW.
where are they
McCain has been thanking the staff and saying goodbye to the journalists.
there are massive rallies for each, and they're behind the scenes there. hope this is true, because then they would take to the stage and we can see a loada Republicans crying (I hope)
OBAMA WINS PEN.
Sorry for being so excited... but Penn is quite a big deal, no?
North Carolina is the clincher. And I'm off to bed I think. I'll check it out tomorrow morning.
means thagt barring real shocks that obama will get no less electoral college votes than Kerry.
Cuts down the number of reds he needs to win
It's a game of football
84-34 to Obama...
I DONT KNOW WHO TO TRUST
they're all different. sky news is the worst (25-32)
Is this the whole 'boards are rubbish' thing in action? Oh well.
Also: Obama's projected to win Pennsylvania!
good fucking lord. at this rate, it will be over before 10 pm here.
in the race to 'call it' quickest. 77 - 34 is a conservative current estimate. Still, I'll take it.
being the first to "call it" only to end up looking idiotic an hour later has taken the shine off that.
I wish I was at the rally. I think I might cry. Not really. But seriously, mangled sighs all around.
hopefully john adler can win tonight.
But A) the friend I'm going with is flaking on me, and I don't want to go alone (but I might yet find someone not there yet who plans on going, and also he might yet come through), and B) I don't have a ticket anyway. I'll be in overflow, if even that at this point.
History wasn't made on an armchair.
Don't pass up the opportunity to be a part of history just because you're worried you'll have nothing in common with the thousands of other people celebrating the victory of your cause.
I'd go anyway, but anyway, I've just found half a dozen other people to go with.
but there's a whole bunch of democrat gimmes in there
but also pennsylvania huh
is what i'm waiting up for, according to all those are the real big ones.
Is where it's at.
obama has this in the bag.
*I do hope they are right.
everything else is an educated guess, still it's a lead. Looking forward to finding out Penn
Good. Nasty piece of work.
at the moment it's heading towards the magic 60 in the senate.
I thought it would be a little better than that. Time, still, though.
it's a landslide for BO Athletic.
like they keep saying on BBC News, it would just take 1 of 6 swing states to go Democrat for Obama to start feeling safe (barring any solid Democrat states going red).
THEN ITS ALL OVER.
that McCain was the only Republican that stood a chance in 2008. Really? Surely Mitt Romney would have run a more disciplined campaign, appealed to the traditional fiscally conservative Republican base a lot more (especially in a time of financial crisis) and not felt the need to choose a catastrophic running mate?
I can't help thinking McCain's dug his own grave to a large extent, no matter how much of a Democrat year this has been.
Back when the primaries were taking place, I can remember all of the Democrats saying that it didn't really matter who won out of Clinton and Obama - if McCain won the Republican candidacy then they no chance.
jumping into a paddling pool full of candy-floss for hollywood_freak.
Michael - Hooked on BBC News and the TV right now... says (01:30):
obama has the lead in texas!!!
still, not certain...
amazing site, usually the first with certain results. Downside is so many people are on it that it's going down every s often.
that's really unbelievable.
It was funny and wonderful to see for a bit though.
but when will we know whoz gonna be prez?
to go to sleep fairly certain. does that make sense?
In Florida results so far.
north carolina's a possibility too - virginia to mccain, indiana too, pennsylvania still looks close even though it's been called
They'll be strong as hell, legislation-wise.
that votes for picked up votes for Obama from Hillary supporters, indies and ex reps would come with a swing to the republicans in the down ticket voting. Doesn't appear to be happening.
The Americans have got to be seeing that in an emergency a split senate and presidency would be a real mistake.
about what a hero McCain is. She was a dem, but had split her ticket to give him the presidential nod.
It's good to know that the majority of people have got some sense.
this afternoon (our time) before half the voting was even done.
wah wah he's got more money than us wah it's a media conspiracy bitch bitch bitch
the projection system. Pennsylvania has been projected for Obama with... 1% of the precincts in?
In other news, Texas is insanely close!
literally IS a black version of my stepdad.
Maybe a bit more bulbus in the face, but size-build-moustache-wise = CLONE.
It sounds a bit like him doesn't it, so he should win it
with, er, 0% of the votes counted
Its so cheap and badly done.
Who the fuck decided that him walking around some Star Wars spaceship-esque classroom full of interactive wall posters and magic graphics would be a good idea?
"Lets go over to Jeremy Vine"
He was pointing at random Florida counties looking for big wins and couldnt find any
when he keeps making 'turning nodule gestures' is this actually doing anything?? or is it a real touch screen system.?
head over to http://tvpc.com/Channel.php?ChannelID=1551 for CNN, their coverage is great AND broken up with brilliantly cheesy US ads.
give me some excitement!
"We've had a great ride, we've had a great experience and it's full of memories that we will always treasure".
the tone of this whole sentence seems pretty defeated to me.
I want a photo finish. The Obama number just keeps going up up up and the McCain one just crawls gradually.
ZZZ. I want action.
which was, coincidentally, my favourite Goosebumps book.
Ouch for McCain
of the required amount.
Given Cali brings in an almost guaranteed 55 more thats 235
Fox calls ohio for Obama. if that holds up we're done.
i'm posting htis now because by the time it actually gets posted, obama will have won.
'bitch' 'fuck' etc.
The ITV coverage is typical hilarious ITV. The times Ive flicked on ive seen: a cowboy, some doddering old bloke that kept talking over the main presenter, some people eating takeaway food and that impressionist guy.
"watch" is such a strong word.
Can't beat a bit of Corrie though, can ya?
I think an election discussion involving the cast of corrie would be amazing.
but I don't know if more Republican states are to be counted yet.
this election is really dark and sinister when you are pmuping out dirty techno and dub in your ear phones at the same time.
Marry Anne Hobbs just gave me a shout out on radio one! :D
what did you say jimmy
I just post on dubstepforum and she reads it and gives people shout outs :)
I posted my Distance interview on her thread as he is on the show tonight.
In other dubstep news, i think Aerial is the 2nd best album of the year
but they will be on the chat rooms for Sub FM and on the Rinse FM MSN chat heheh oh and bits of the forum I guess...
Aerial is awsome its easy in my top 10. I think I'm getting to see 2562 in Leeds soon he is playin a club there right after I go to see Youthmovies on the same night :)
I would very much like to see Mr 62 sometime, depsite my dislike of clubs
Best quote ever. I'm stealing that.
christ they're shit.
they just called it reedickyou-lously early.
and find that McCain has staged an amazing comeback.
i should probably stop being a turd and go to bed.
i cant see it going any other way than obama, but i cant stop watching.
I'm going to go to bed now. I'm certain enough of the result to give in to my body's desire for sleep.
looking at him claiming Palin was a good decision that didn't freak independent voters
for more detailed statistics on voter breakdown, and coverage on the Senate races, but generally the BBC are doing what they're supposed to do pretty well.
between moustachioed Republican former UN ambassador being an arrogant tosser and an annoying reporter who feels that she'll be more convincing if she YELPS EVERY FUCKING WORD.
if they argued with fists, not words?
Thats him flirting. He probably thinks he and his moustache are well in there.
aptly demonstrating why Bush appointed him to one of the most important diplomatic postions in the world ( I believe this is a traditional facepalm moment). Still he's not come across as badly as when he basically rewrote a big chunk of early US political history on the Daily Show.
Thats ohio called for BO by the BBC. job done. all about margin = Obama's mandate and the Senate race now.
he was always a huge massive twat on that, it was as if he didn't know that the world outside "the West" was made up of seperate countries.
People can rest easy - he's definitely winning, question is by how much. The tension now lies with the Senate races.
55 points from Cal going Obama's way probably...The senate will be interesting
Although I'll be watching on the telly. Mon the Obama!
who is he? i recognise him....
former US Ambassador to the United Nations - he was the one doing some of the "diplomacy" during the start of the Iraq war amoungst other things.
he was essentially put there by Bush's people because they wanted the UN to leave them the fuck alone and he was just about the most antagonistic anti-UN man they had.
ITS FUCKING ON!
Probably less if he loses NC, VI, FL, or any combination of them. Plus Colorado is apparently looking like an absolute Obama romp.
I gotta be up at 7.30 so I'm heading to bed, safe in the knowledge that with Ohio and New Mexico called and the 3 west coast states to come, there's no possible way Obama can lose.
Goodnight DiS. Goodnight America.
This doesn't surprise me, but every other site I'm watching is saying it's too close to call (indeed, McCain is ahead slightly in some polls). Seems slightly jumping the gun for them.
The NY Times are calling Colorado for Obama too, which everybody seemed to be expecting.
especially the rowdy moustache man, and did the very english sounding guy call the presenter a wuss?
and assumed it was directed at Bolton considering how argumentative he's been all evening.
other highlights 'no fox news is not good enough' and moustache man shouting at that women and calling her ignorant and backing it up with an unrelated point
The guy they had on earlier was cool too - I'm sure he said something about "even developed Americans care about religion"
John Bolton and Simon Schama? I love how much Bolton is constantly squirming, he kinda represents the nadir of Bush's foreign policy.
theres so many old women it looks more like a tupperware party
the CNN reporter says they've turned off the news at the Republican rally, and did so before Pennsylvania turned blue.
Jeremy Vine has to walk down the stairs at the beginning of his part. Like he's the Queen, making a grand entrance. I want John Snow, and I want a Swingometer :(.
i don't think they do
Im worried about him
i think he's overdone the pretending
and they haven't even lost yet
"yeah well, we'll see them in court over that one"
I do find it a bit weird though...people vote...but their vote won't actually be counted? How does that work out?
then your votes don't count - all votes in the electoral college are given to the Republicans. Same as in Britain with the first-past-the-post system.
1000 absintee ballots are cast and 600 are for McCain but in the actual polling day voting Obama wins by 2000.
If this is the case then the ward can safely declare Obama winner with the knowledge that the 'non-counted' votes wouldn't have effected the outcome.
Super thanks. There's something about US politics that always seems over-confusing.
Their reasons for calling foul are far less dramatic and serious, and the outcome of challenging some of these results is irrelevant, but they're still pushing it. When the Democrats dared to raise these issues 8 years ago (hell, even 4 years ago) the screech of the harpies was deafening.
izzard = 'the third millenium starst 2night'
oh dear that was good but er 'slavery is over..' um live telly there kids.
I don't care what Ricky Gervais thinks. I don't care what Eddy Izzard thinks. I do want to see more of Bolton self destructing.
from any incoming sources months ago and only use it to play the xbox or watch dvds. What's all this about, is it an election, who's in it ?
changing his opinion by the second.
what a joker
Bolton is at is again!
"You should fire that reporter" Fuck off lol
a bitter chap. I'm kind of hypnotised by that 'tache though. I think I'm feeling...jealousy?
or so he thinks.....
John Bolton is. Still, he alone has made tonight worthwhile. That was tonight's equivalent of David Mellor or Michael Portillo in 1997.
Does anyone, anywhere, take Bolton seriously? Did they ever?
"You're putting on a very brave face!"
What does he expect? Cock. He wouldn't shutup.
I'm to busey listening to music to turn the sound on...
is it a tache off?!
the first one to spontaneously combust wins
Schama drunk? He keeps on leaning into Bolton, as if he needs somewhere to rest his battered head...
They may as well be on a uni rugby team :P
who can blame him?
IN HIS OWN FEVERED MIND
I'm starting to twitch from the withdrawal.
At least Bolton's accepted Obama's won, now.
*continues reddening steadily*
"Politicians are politicians."
in my freezer left over from halloween if any of you want some
Now they've got a plastered Nick Robinson, swaying on his feet, standing outside 10 Downing Street after pissing on the door.
you can almost smell his kabab just out of shot
"happy journey home...if you can hear me, you pissed twat"
He was actually drunk. Well played sir, I reckon Dimbleby is a wee bit jealous.
Just seemed the same as always to me.
Not sway madly with a massive grin on his face
He had that smile that suggests he's drunk when he shouldn't be, but he's totally winged it...yeeeeeah.
That cheeky smile that suggests that he's drunk when he really shouldn't be, but he's totally winged it. Yeeeeaaah.
Bolton's turned into a fat black woman!
just how tragic uk politics is at the minute. cameron v brown next year oh god plz kill me.
but they do go on all night with loads of metal people chatting on telly
up in scotland.
the snp are going to win
not quite as mad as Bolton but I'm expecting something quality from the man who wrote the Axis of Evil speech for Bush
and 5/10 men are leaning that way.
So far, the Dems have picked up 4 extra seats (Warner (VA), Shaheen (NH), Udall (NM) and Hagan (NC)), bringing them to 55 seats. Another 3 seats are looking in the bag, and Al Franken's currently exit polling in double digits. That gives them 59. It would have been 58 if not for Ted Stevens' political combustion last week.
It's the last seat that's in doubt. The most likely to go blue is that in Georgia, belonging to Chambliss. The BBC called that as staying Republican about two hours ago (!!!) butt retracted it, as several large democratic wards have yet to report. It's either this, or have Wicker upset Musgrove in MS. This is difficult.
I'm so tense right now.
and its official?
And if he hasn't already done so behind the scenes, then he presumably will as soon as Virginia, North Carolina, New Mexico, and Colorado declare their results. So give it an hour, two at most.
...in which case they might try and make this drag on. But I highly doubt it.
I'd love him to speak in Urdu, just for a laugh
i want more of your traditional reactionary sloganeering :(
he is right about mccain shooting himself in the foot a bunch of times
john bolton and tell him to f off. hes a dangerous individual trying to change the past and put lies as truth
Obama's ahead in North Carolina, Indiana, Virginia, and Florida. The networks should be announcing those imminently.
Bet loads of west coats votes'll come in
Fuck I'm getting tired lol
15 minutes time, and we can all celebrate
4 tbh, it was over months ago but still, officially though.
not sure if anyones mentioned it yet but.. did anyone hear that ridiculous argument by the BBC reporter?! for once i agreed with that US board member, the whole "interview" was Absolutely an embarrassment.
After 2000, and the exit poll debacle of 2004, the networks want to be absolutely sure that they're right, because if they declare these states now it'll push Obama over the edge and they'll have to annoint him.
The BBC studio is creaking, strangely.
no idea why I didn't
I drank many a beer, but it has worn off and now I am suffering from beer-fatigue. Looks like it'll be over in six minutes.
gunna hold out for the next lot of results then it's dreamland for me. The rest of the house went to bed hours ago, I feel like I've proved my interest in US politics...maybe.
I didn't have a single drop alcohol in the flat :(
Guess I could steal some wine ?
with marry anne hobbs in my ear holes but that ends soon and I will have to listen to the people talk more and that is going to be tough.
I think I have a little wine open in the fridge...
it's been awhile since his CGI space capsule was last on
I find it all a bit of a bullshit.
But tonight I'd be lying if I wasn't feeling a little bit emotional.
across the road from my house. they started at 4 as the announcement was made but they aren't in the appropriate colours.
then again, this is britain so maybe that doesn't matter so much.
wow, an intellectual urban democrat president
big cheer in the office
what are you on about, although I think I saw him down some endz reppin his crew with some lino under his arm and a boombox ready to do some breaking.
don't be so ready to read racism into everything
anything is possible people
I bet he's assassinated before his serves his full 4 years, sorry to piss on any of your fireworks but I reckon this could happen. Its a very good thing that he has won but I am sure there are plenty of rednecks in middle america that are less than pleased
because apart from the two coasts there is still quite a lot of racism in US in the middle and deep south and they won't be happy with a (nearly) black president
was rather moving
the people booing can just fuck off
who looks so full of hateful nasty fucked-upness.
What kind of coverage d'you reckon the papers will provide tomorrow?
When's their print deadline, normally 10pm or something isn't it? So way too early to predict in any way... Will they do afternoon editions or something?
They all had Obama winning on the front cover.
Nay, great. He always struck me as a poor orator, but he's chosen good words. I'm actually finding it emotional.
As someone else said, the shots of the old civil rights leaders with tears in their eyes are extremely moving.
but woah wtf at the booing. god help these people.
so fuck 'em
then he had to brick up Palin, ffs
but between then and now the GOP higher-ups will have a rethink and decide religious nutcasery isn't the appealling electoral force it once was and she'll not even get the nomination.
instead of the party hate machine he would've done a lot better with independents.
I'm finding this much more thought provoking than I figured it'd be.
The other states should have been declared by then, so I can finish colouring in my map.
Now it gets more complicated, probably.
You know its going to be good :)
it'll be worth it, it really will.
but i really want to watch it
Missouri is close, Indiana is all but certainly Indiana, and North Carolina is down to less than 5,000 votes.
and his magical CGI railings... I can even put up with this now.
and it looks wank
and he's getting in a fight with Dimbleby
"i don't know why you would, because i don't know who you are"
double-you tea eff
whose enemies have been defeated.
also the tories not much better than these horrible people tee-hee
BBC's coverage has been so....shit its great.
he was a drunk old man talking absolute nonsense. Wonder what possessed the BBC to put him on?
i'm never convinced that they fully understand what blogs actually are
all he had was a really out of date looking cgi railing
happy happy happy
good night y'all
But it was worth staying up for angry John Bolton, drunk Nick Robinson and mental Gore Vidal.
It was really difficult not to get caught up. I have to say i kept my composure though I gawed my fingers to shit during Obamas speech, referencing Sam Cooke brought more than just a lump to my throat. Its not so much that things are really going to change, its just the knowledge that Americans are actually willing.
