    Default The official 2008 American Election thread

    I thought I should start a thread as we'll start seeing results in about an hour and fifteen minutes from now. Hope you guys don't mind that I started this thread.

    There will not be results for a long time yet. The polls on the west coast do not close until about 10pm EST.

    I am going to bed and getting up in the middle of the morning when it's quiet. The last two elections about did me under and I hope this one will be straight-forward...'wake me when it's over...'

    I'm glad I live in the Southwest, I don't have to stay up so damn late to find out results.
    I'm not quite drunk enough to really care, but is this her violation of her violation of her violation of her violation of probation or her violation of her violation of her violation of her probation????? ~MontanaMama on LL's latest arrest.

    I'm just curious about something. Is there an East coast election results black-out if you're in the West?
    For example, if you're on the west coast for Canadian Elections, CBC / CTV eastern feeds are blacked-out.

    I was wondering that too. I asked the question earlier but no one answered.

    Yes there is supposed to be a black out. No network is supposed to report exit poll results because a few elections back they were calling the election while it was rush hour on the west coast. Those who lost complained they were not given a fair chance because people just went home since they assumed it was over. Now they are supposed to wait until the last poll on the west coast closes.

    On behalf of the United States of America and the Great State of Texas, I proclaim Mariesoleil an Honorary Citizen. Her diligence and assistance during our Hurricane Season was of outstanding merit. She is a valued friend.
