With NBC and Fox both projecting Bush with 269 Electoral Votes and a 3.2 million vote popular vote lead, it’s very safe to call this election for Bush. That and the fact that Bush will win New Mexico – even if the absentee ballot counting is delayed…
Update: It looks like he might win Iowa too, and Nevada (17 EV’s total).
Update 2: It’s entirely possible the final results will not be officially known for 48 hours, but rest assured that the President will win. He’s ahead by 125,000 votes in Ohio with 97% of the vote counted.
Update 3: John Edwards was trotted out to say that the Kerry-Edwards team was keeping up the fight in Ohio. If the provisional vote total is more that the margin of Bush victory they’ll only need to win something on the order of 9 out of every 10 provisional ballots that were legally cast. It’s desperation time for Democrats…
Staying up so many hours makes me clairvoyant, hee hee. They’re from another planet, and it’s not Venus!
No one missed me (I’m STILL on my way out the door, and to bed…) but here’s an article about President Bush’s planned declarative speech for “early Wednesday morning” it reads. There’s no way that it will not be on FOX, live.
As an aside here, I was just wondering what the results from yesterday and this morning say about ZOGBY!?! **Nevermind.**
Hee hee -S-, we’re two of a kind. I’ve been “going to go to bed soon” since Monday.
Yes, what was that about Zogby again? Called a state wrongly prematurely or the whole thing?
Hearing something on Fox now that Ohio has finished the count. Bush won of course. And provisional ballots may be counted, after they’ve been verified as valid, in about 11 days… correct me if I’m wrong. Listening to talk radio and two tv channels at once!
This is like an Olympic relay race – we want to pass the baton on to you guys now, so we can go to sl….. zzzzz.
Rather just called Lynch the Democrat Governor canidate who won the New Hampshire Election, the New Governor of New Jersey! Bwahaha, someone needs to hit the sack and get some sleep.
His whole demeanor is one of severe discomfort!
Bloggers never sleep!

Sorry, still don’t know how to make it clickable. In the meantime, just copy it into address line on the net.
I don’t know what Kerry’s strategy in Ohio is, but if he thinks that he can make up 140,000 votes (2.66% of all votes cast) then he should be worried about his 125,000 vote lead in PA (2.23% of all votes cast).
CBS’s panel of lefties are arguing as if there’s something wrong. Ed Bradley started listing all the bad news Bush had to endure and yet he still appears to be victorious. I’m surprised he didn’t say, “We know Kerry won cause Bush sucks.”
The MSM spin is that this is 2000 redux, but in reality it’s not. First, Bush won the popular vote by 3 percent. Florida was won handily, not by a mere 500 votes. Ohio is Bush’s even if they count the provisional ballots. The MSM seem to be worried that perhaps, maybe Kerry’s voters are being shortchanged, but they don’t seem to care about kicking the majority of voters in the shins with these tactics to steal the election. I expect nothing less from the savages in the Democrat Party.
