the political junkie marathon set to begin

I admit it. I’m a political junkie. I won’t know what to do with myself once the election is over! Thank goodness we’ve got an election here in February for me to obsess about after this stint but it will so be not as exciting. Bibi is going to take the biggest slice of the pie and there is no doubt or question.

I think Romney is going to take more 300 electoral college votes but admit to being on pins and needles, nonetheless. The stakes are so incredibly high in this election. I’m planning to live blog the election — hey, I can sleep tomorrow afternoon :0 — early exit polls should start rolling in as evening falls here. I’ve got a bit of a back-up plan: if things get too nerve-wracking, I’ve got the newest episode of The Walking Dead cued up. I figure it is a good thing to watch in the event Obama does win, getting prepared for what the U.S. might look in another four years with him at the helm.

    Ahhh, I love The Walking Dead !

    • Larry007 says :

      OK, I saw the last episode and i would NOT recommend you to watch it !

      • israeliminx says :

        No spoiler on this but I hope they kill off the kid– he is really annoying. They don’t kill him for a long time in the comic books but a little deviation here wouldn’t hurt. He can’t act his way out of a paper bag. I know they are expected to kill off his mother and the baby (once she has it).

        Do you suggest not watching because it is a boring one where not much happens or because of gruesomeness? Gruesome is good, boring not so much… 🙂

        • Larry007 says :

          I didn’t know there was a comic book 🙂
          It was gruesome, at least for me, I have a sensible stomach 😉 but cool show 🙂

    I’ll be watching season 5 of “The Wire.”
    I predict a Romney win 280-310 electoral college votes. Senate 50-50. 3 to 5 more House seats for GOP. The entire cast and crew of MSNBC committing ritualistic suicide

    • israeliminx says :

      Oh Tiger Mike , now that would be entertainment –(clearly kidding folks). But another epic meltdown along the lines of Chris Matthews would be so much fun to see! I like your predictions! I think R is going to get Minn. though and Wisconsin and thus get over 300. I’ll take your scenario, however!

      • Tiger Mike says :

        I’m more anxious to know if I owe you a can of beans or you owe me a falafel.

        • israeliminx says :

          Tiger — believe me, I’m countin’ on those beans!!! There is no way more than 70% are going to vote for Obama. Maybe 68%…maybe about 10% will just not vote … but no way is Obama getting 70%.

  3. Lynne says :

    I just voted!!! Now the waiting begins…
    Tiger Mike, what is the Wire?

    Its 12:30 pm cst and i voted straight Republican and even voted for myself for 1 of the Judges. I would have voted for my 1/2 chow 1/2 lab dog but alas she passed away in 06. Alot of people were there but i think it took so long because they had 2 instead of the usual 4 people checking registration. I had to show a photo took an hour.the dhimmicrats are saying to ignore the exit polls they have enough early votes to win. I hope if obama loses he will go out peacefully.everyone needs to stay in prayer it aint over till its over.i hope BiBi gets the nod in Yisrael.we need strong leaders in these days.

  5. Lynne says :

    I voted straight Republican. For the first time in my life, I not only voted for ONE Republican; I voted for them ALL.
    Obama and the Liar’s Club of Wasserman-Schulz, Rice, Clinton, etc. have completely turned me away from Democratic Party affiliation.

  6. Mac says :

    Well, I was the LAST person to vote at my polling place, lol. I asked if it had been a busy day and I think she said I was #1003. They were folding the booths when I went in and there was 1 booth still up.

  7. Lynne says :

    I said that I would not look until the results were in, but I could not help myself. It is looking like a win for Obama, with Florida and Virginia seeming to go to Obama. I hope that I am wrong.

  8. Lynne says :

    Obama for four more years. How horrible!

  9. XSouthAfricanGal says :

    VIVA Obamma!!!!!
    sigh of relief for alittle bit of sanity in this insane world

    • Lynne says :

      ExSouthAfricanGal, Why on earth would you want to see Obama win a second term? Do you live in Israel? Really? And you want to see Obama support Israel’s enemies?

  11. Mac says :

    Where does incompetent equal sanity?

  12. philipzhao says :

    Obama re-elected! Fly American national colors at half-mask as this is a day for national mourning. Israel,get ready to nuke Iran before it’s too late !!!111

  13. TDDPirate says :

    At 1972, Richard Nixon won by landslide.
    At 1974 he was forced to resign due to the Watergate scandal.

    I wonder how will the Benghazigate scandal develop, and whether help to the Sandi victims will fail to be forthcoming.

    What’s sure is that life here would be interesting (in the Chinese curse sense).

    As far as impeachment for obama i have stated before as long as there are 34 dhimmicrats in the senate he will never be convicted if the house impeaches him. We have had 50yrs of liberal indoctrination in America.immigration isnt the problem its ILLEGAL immigration. Jan.1 massive tax increases kick massive unemployment is prepared to pay an extra $300 a month for heating and electricity.this election will shape Amerika for the next 40yrs sadly that makes our posterity slaves to the state.Blessed is the nation who’s god is HaShem.for all who sold your freedom for the socialist pipedream i have a name for you: abdobama.may i quote the great Zora Neal Young:i would rather be free and hungry than a well fed slave. The democrats have achieved their goal that began after they lost the civil war:to enslave the entire populous. Good bye America,and Yisrael youre on your own.Yeshua said:many will come in name saying i am of Messiah but dont go after them.You will know them by their fruit.

  15. 300yrs in America says :

    I must correct myself it was Zora Neal Hurston. And Yeshua said: many will come in my name etc. Remember muhammad stated Jews were cursed for rejecting isa(whoever that is) and Christians are cursed for rejecting him.he also stated that the Jews changed the name of allah in the Torah to YHWH.and Christians removed the prophecies of Yeshua that mentioned him and the Jews did the same.and we in America will soon be subject to the muslim anti blasphemy case thats not enough obamacare provides for 200000 man national police force that they just bought 1.5trillion rounds of hollow point ammo for.
