8:00 p.m. Results: “In the unlikely story that is America, there has never been anything false about hope.”

(8:55) Fox has called Virginia for Obama, who is up by over 37,000 with 12% of the precints to come in. With the likely pickup of the West Coast in the next five minutes, we’ve won. Millions of neurotic Democrats can breathe again. 🙂

(8:52) A Democrat is inching closer to winning in Indiana. Even if Obama ends up falling a little short, an enormous swing in a very conservative state.

(8:50) Early results from Montana have McCulloch, Bullock, McGrath, Lindeen and Juneau up big, with very limited results in.

(8:47) Did CNN just “beam” a hologram into the studio to talk to him? This might be the craziest thing I have ever seen on an election night.

(8:45) Is Tim Pawlenty the only Republican willing to talk to the camera tonight?

(8:40) With 86% of the vote in, Obama is winning Virginia by 30,000 votes, 50-48.9%

(8:27) Voters are still registering to vote in Cascade County, at least.

(8:21) God, I love listening to Fox. They’re still talking about what an amazing candidate Sarah Palin was. Just keep sinking into your own invented reality. Enjoy being the minority party for the next generation.

(8:17) 81 % of the votes in, and Senator Obama is winning Virginia by 10,000 votes.

(8:16) Yes, the AP has called Montana for Governor Schweitzer and Senator Baucus. Tell me I live in a red state again, please.

(8:12) Has the Gazette already called the race for Governor Schweitzer?

(8:09) South Dakota abortion ban has failed, according to Rachael Maddow. The Colorado anti-choice initiative has also gone down to defeat.

(8:01) Obama has pulled ahead in Virginia, with 83% of the vote in.

If you appreciate an independent voice holding Montana politicians accountable and informing voters, and you can throw a few dollars a month our way, we would certainly appreciate it.
