10:15 It’s time to call it a night. Thank you TigerHawk for your hospitality!
10:00 Electoral votes: Obama 207, McCain 129.
Was that chocolate popcorn I saw?
TigerHawk: “Bush ought to come out first thing tomorrow morning and say, ‘I’m pardoning Obama for all his dealings with Tony Rezko, and Obama’s aunt for being here illegally.’ ”
9:51 Tomorrow the pundits will be splitting hairs about the results in the South, none of which will be favorable.
Welcome, Instapundit readers!
Heard from one of the conservatives here just now: “I think Obama’s an enigma, but what worries me is his protectionism.”
9:38 Throwing the towel:
It is over

I, for one, welcome our new Democratic overlords.*
*Please do not shut down this blog!
9:35 Ah the ironies of life,
AT THE MOMENT, MCCAIN IS AHEAD IN POPULAR VOTES while way behind in electoral votes. I doubt that will last, but in light of 2000 it’s funny.
9:18 One of the five Princeton conservatives had to catch up on work and left but another one came, so we’re still holding the number at 5.
The conversation has shifted to semiotics.
Excuse me while I go look up the word in the dictionary.
9:09 TigerHawk: “The electoral college is awsome.”
Other guest: “Wouldn’t you like proportionality?”
TigerHawk: “No, it would take all the math out.”
More results: With 36% of the vote in, Georgia’s for McCain.
Kentucky with 60% + of the vote, also for McCain.
9:00 A Facebook group sent an alert asking people to change their status because Pennsylvania was called two early. The conversation here has drifted to school and sports activities. The dogs are napping under the kitchen table.
Were they calling Ohio for Obama? No, Brit Hume says they’re not calling Ohio.
Back to the nachos.
8:46 Virginia goes for McCain; 13 electoral votes.
8:30 All five Princeton conservatives are now here.
Fox News projects that Obama gets Pennsylvania. Interestingly, only a few minutes earlier Michael Barone had said that they didn’t have enough information and not enough poll results to call the state. Their own board shows only 1% of the votes are in.
If Florida and Texas go for Obama, might as well pack it.
8:08 Fox projects that Mitch McConnel has been re-elected; Elizabeth Dole lost in NC.
7:55PM: We’re at TigerHawk‘s den, and the nachos are ready, along with the adult beverages.
Polls are clasing in the East, and the question is, will results in the East be favorable enough for McCain for us to spend more than a couple of hours at this? TigerHawk has a champagne bottle chilled if Murtha loses.
TigerHawk just remarked that Obama has 56% of the vote in Florida, with only 3% in.
