Had a long wait trying to get my credentials apparently instead of being at the Convention center they were at Romney HQ rather than here so I had a bit of a wait before actually getting in.
Once I got in I’ve found it fairly boring, My PC was near dead from traveling and the hone needed charging so I parked myself in a corner and started waiting.
If there is one thing I’ve discovered it’s that:
There is a difference between “projections” and “results”
and there is nothing so fickle as the folks at an event like this.
Lots of mood swings, particularly when Obama was projected to get Pennsylvania (hey last shot to steal before the voter ID law and Michigan wasn’t a big thought but the New Hampshire numbers have surprised me, an awful lot of change in just two years, but then again a lot of people have been running away from Massachusetts. Considering the results from the state so far can’t blame them.
But people here are too busy reacting to early calls, the only thing we can simply do is to wait and let the results come in and see what the actual numbers are, there is no percentage in worry or speculation.
So I will sit and wait which when it comes down it is all that can be done now.
And before we all panic over projections let me note something.
About an hour ago they were calling question 2 as a winner with 7% of the vote in
As of right now it’s trailing 51-49 with 34% of the vote in.
Like in baseball, you actually have to play the game, so don’t get panicked or angry…
…unless someone charges you $4.75 or a can of diet pepsi
Update: Scott Brown giving concession speech, Massachusetts voters getting what we deserve, I think Brown was better than Warren but perhaps the GOP should have spent some time selling conservatism rather than running from it.
Update 2: Stacy McCain has given up the ghost, I’m still waiting to see the hard numbers out of Wisconsin and I’m even more interested in where the vote is.
Update 3: It’s amazing what happens when you don’t have a 16-1 cash advantage over your opponent in Ohio to boost your chances.
Update 4: Apparently things have to get much worse before they get better, lucky for the US the “much worse” part is practically assured now
