This may be the night the Trump tastes alcohol for the first time, doing a well deserved a Champagne toast to KellyAnne Conway.

Or at least light up a Red Auerbach cigar.

I love the sight of exploding liberal heads.

I'm glad I poked my head into Althouse tonight and looked at comments. I wasn't planning on watching TV tonight (bad memories from 2012 still die hard) but after seeing that for now - for a couple of hours anyway - that Hildebeast might not make it, I tuned into ABC, NBC etc. The look of shock on the face of Stephanopoulos is one I will never forget.

Paul Ryan may just be the luckiest SOB in the universe. If Trump wins and the GOP holds/ties the Senate, the Ryan House will be writing the nation's legislation for the next two years. Nuke the filibuster if necessary.

Trump doesn't know how to do legislation - it will have to be outsourced to Ryan, and if he can pass bills that are even vaguely responsive to various of Trump's promises, Trump will sign them.

holdfast said...

Fox just called Wisconsin for Trump.

Wow. If Trump wins, he really owes Walker - I'd love to see Walker as Sec of Labor, but it sort of feels like a demotion

Wisconsin for Trump!

Happy Hillbilly here, thanks!

Drago said...

David: "I still do not see that Trump has it locked up. Everyone talking as though he has won it."

True, but at this point all Trump has to do is hold the rest of the Romney states and he is at worst at 269 (a tie) which would throw the election into the House which the republicans will hold.

The best news of the night? Hillary is so blitzed by now that she doesn't even know what's happening.

Alex said...

269 tie possible?

grackle said...

As suspected, as claimed by many, the polls were shit. I suspect that Trump was ahead immediately after the primaries. The polls are used to kill enthusiasm for candidates disliked by the MSM. That’s all they are – just a tool of deception.

I’m surprised only because the usual Democrat voting fraud was apparently curtailed – they didn’t think they would need it, I’ll bet.

Paul Ryan’s days as Speaker are numbered unless he toes the Trump line. Maybe even then. But a couple of character-building sessions in front of President Trump’s big desk in the Oval office should do the trick. Ryan is no intellectual but he’s certainly capable of recognizing a political tsunami.

Limited blogger said...

Pennsylvania close to being called. Very tight, but looks like Trump.

clint said...

" Alex said...
269 tie possible?

11/8/16, 10:56 PM"

Yep.

Trump's at 254. He's going to get 11 for Arizona and 3 for Alaska -- that's 268. He'll probably get the 1 vote in rural Maine that goes independently. That's 269.

If Clinton gets Minnesota, Nevada, Michigan, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire, and the rest of Maine.

269-269, and it goes to the House for an easy Trump win there.

I wouldn't count on it being easy. Probably a win, but I think there might be some dissension.

In the House, the vote is by state delegation.

As of now my thoughts are on who will be in a Trump administration. Most of my curiosity is focussed on Chief of Staff. I think someone with legislative experience, who can follow orders and knows how to use both carrot and stick.

Lesson #1

The Dems and the GOP are in effect one party. They share the same general goals, only opposing the other in a variety of pet issues. They are much more alike than different. And they will eagerly unite against anyone, even the nominee of their own party, which threatens their dual strangleholds on opinion and politics.

Gahrie said...

Paul Ryan’s days as Speaker are numbered unless he toes the Trump line.

I'm willing to give Ryan the benefit of the doubt at this point. He may just seize this opportunity to actually do some good work and began the job of cleaning up the government.

Major tax reform...get rid of the IRS, drastically simplify the tax code

Ax the Department of Education..rein in the EPA.....fix NASA...

traditionalguy said...

The ABC panel of Know It All's is commiserating on the disaster. They really cannot think past the old lies they made up and retold for HRC's campaign. They are retelling the lie that Russia helped Trump win because Trump praised Putin's leadership style and plans to end NATO.

They actually still believe their on stuck-on-stupid propaganda memes. The MSM is so dysfunctional that you almost want to feel sorry for them.

There's colors on the street
Red, white and blue
People shufflin' their feet
People sleepin' in their shoes
But there's a warnin' sign on the road ahead
There's a lot of people sayin' we'd be better off dead
Don't feel like Satan, but I am to them
So I try to forget it any way I can.
Keep on rockin' in the free world,
Keep on rockin' in the free world
Keep on rockin' in the free world,
Keep on rockin' in the free world.
I see a woman in the night
With a baby in her hand
Under an old street light
Near a garbage can
Now she puts the kid away, and she's gone to get a hit
She hates her life, and what she's done to it
There's one more kid that will never go to school
Never get to fall in love, never get to be cool.
Keep on rockin' in the free world,
Keep on rockin' in the free world
Keep on rockin' in the free world,
Keep on rockin' in the free world.
We got a thousand points of light
For the homeless man
We got a kinder, gentler,
Machine gun hand
We got department stores and toilet paper
Got styrofoam boxes for the ozone layer
Got a man of the people, says keep hope alive
Got fuel to burn, got roads to drive.
Keep on rockin' in the free world,
Keep on rockin' in the free world
Keep on rockin' in the free world,
Keep on rockin' in the free world.

Thy name I love.

Thy woods and templed hills;
My heart with rapture fills

Let music swell the breeze,
And ring from all the trees
Sweet freedom's song.
Let mortal tongues awake;
Let all that breathe partake;
Let rocks their silence break,
The sound prolong.

Our father's God to, Thee,
Author of liberty,
To Thee we sing.
Long may our land be bright
With freedom's holy light;
Protect us by Thy might,
Great God, our King!

Seeing random reports that Trump has won Pennsylvania, but the major media outlets have not called it. What is going on?

I think Trump is going to declare victory.

traditionalguy said...

The Official Line on Pa Mn and Wi is that there are Absentee Ballots that have to be found or more carefully recounted and there are precincts in Heavy Democrat Cities that have to have their votes recalculated, all until Hillary wins.

Bad Lieutenant said...

You know what it's over. News Republic, a feed on my new phone which hates Trump, just said that he was elected the 45th president. So it's over. I haven't looked to see what states for that.

So now it's 2:30 in the morning and you know what, old Hillary is always tired. She hasn't got the heart. She just couldn't face the music. So she sent out her current Consigliere to Defuse The Bomb, to send the crowd home and she would get 8 hours of sleep and take all the proper doses and to think about it tomorrow. Meanwhile, going to sleep was her concession speech.

Or perhaps she won't wake up. She's an old woman. She could die in the night. It would solve a lot of problems. Do not send the Secret Service after me it's a warning not a threat.

then thinking that Trump was not being destroyed,

that Trump was making it a race,

that Trump was ahead

that Trump was winning

that Trump had won but they couldn't bear to say so.

Will we wake up tomorrow and find that the Clintons have found shoeboxes full of 2,000, 000 votes in 8 battleground states and the FBI investigated and they are valid votes of felons and illegals and the DOJ has counted them themselves and Hillary wins? It wouldn't surprise me and yet she has conceded.

And Hillary leaves the national stage in the most graceless, petty way possible- not showing up to concede and thank her supporters for their dedication, people who had been standing there for hours.

Tempting thought … but he may be useful. The fucking traitor has already called Trump according to Fox. An abject apology with a vow to cooperate, no doubt. Trump is carrying his state. That gives Trump some leverage.

On a side note I would like to point out that this pretty much ends the Clintons as a major political power (unless you expect Chelsea to do anything).

The Clintons will be lucky to stay out of jail. My guess – after Trump is sworn in: Special Prosecutor, here we come. I think we can understand Comey’s behavior now. A theory I’ve seen around: Can Obama pardon them before they are charged?

Mr Wibble said...

Lesson #2

The polls were and are … shit. I suspect that after the primaries that Trump was in the lead all along. The polls, for whatever reasons you might choose to promote, have proved to be unreliable. That’s just a fact.

So how do you beat us? We are so dumb, we'll even tell you: go to Pennsylvania and Michigan, find our new blue collar voters. Hector them. Call them "racist sexist homophobes!". Yell at them for Triggering you with Micro-aggressions. Check their privilege.

Do this for the next 4 years and your Nightmare will end.

Lovingly
A Friend

You can now get Hillary to speak at your event for $14.99.

I'm still curious what the official account of the gender divide on voting patterns means, if women are officially the same as men. If women differ in voting, why not anything else?

It's almost exactly the percentage of soap opera women in the population of women, 40%, too.

The 60% having learned mostly to navigate around those instincts, I'd guess, under enough pressure.

It was pretty obvious. The TEA Party got a lot of people elected that simply lied to get elected-Paul Ryan. DC pissed a lot of people off. TEA Party people vote. The TEA Party is the working and middle class. Don't piss them off.

In early Sept CBS panel predicted Hillary would win with 341 EC votes.

I expect a wave of pardons before January. Of couse if Hillary is pardoned, then she's open to new crimes of lying to congress when they compel her testimony; say you want to clean the swamp with an object lesson.

Priority one drain the swamp.

Trump's plan to build a new White House is probably a mistake.

NYT email

Donald J. Trump won a historic upset victory in the presidential race early Wednesday, riding a wave of unexpectedly strong support from working-class white voters who embraced his hard-edged populism even as millions of women, minorities and others were horrified by his divisive brand of politics.

That's what I'm talking about. What is it with women, officially in feminist theory?

@Wilbur I am not sure why you would sell GE. Maybe because Immelt is a handmaiden of the dems? Remember that even if their windmill business gets whacked they still make jet engines and electrical generation equipment. Now you might want to replace GE with United Technologies makers of all sorts of defense related products. That would make sense.

"President-elect Trump – soon to be the chief law enforcement officer of the land - has bragged about his right to grab women “by the pussy” – and very likely, his subordinates will follow his example."

Rusty- you are right. I guess people should have paid more attention to the 2014 midterms, and what people were saying they wanted.

AllenS said...

Where I live in Wisconsin, Polk County, voted this way --

Trump 13,864 -- Clinton 7,568
Trump 61.1% -- Clinton 33.4%

What the Podesta emails taught me about this election:

If you are spinning webs of deceit, don't expect other people to believe things even you know aren't true.

MayBee said...

Or....you can tell people what they are thinking is wrong and why it is wrong, but that doesn't mean they will stop thinking it.
The shame game has got to end. It sure didn't work this time.

DanTheMan said...

If Hillary still gets $500K for a speech, then we must concede that she has special, valuable insight to share with Wall Street.

If she doesn't, can we finally start calling them bribes?


Fabi said...

I doubt that Trump and his subordinates will ever grab as much pussy as the Kennedys and their ilk, Terry.

Grab some pussy is an idiom. Grab her pussy is not.

Robert Cook said...

Trump's victory is a stark repudiation of not just Clinton, but of Obama, and of the Democrats' game of promising to help "the people" then governing as Republicans-lite, and acting as caretakers for the properties and prerogatives of the financial elites.

If Bernie had not been thrown under the bus--and I was not a Bernie supporter, as he is, rhetoric aside, a mainstream Democrat in "socialist" guise--he would very possibly have won.

Perhaps next time around, the Dems will actually put forth a truly progressive, left-leaning candidate, one who, like Trump, might convince voters he or she will not carry on Beltway business as usual.

Trump, in the interim, will face the possibility of letting down his supporters, when he cannot magically "make America great again" and deliver to them that which he promised and they believed he will deliver.

MayBee said...

I think the Dems could have won with Jim Webb, but they didn't want him.

AprilApple said...

Cook - ObamaCare isn't "Republican lite."
Obamacare is A FRAUD - and the R warned against it, and not a single R voted for it.

Stuff your bull.

Chuck, tell us how an Establishment Republican could have won PA and WI.

Chuck did say he was voting Trump, just that he really didn't like him.

I was way less negative on Trump than he and I didn't see Trump winning PA. Apparently, and much to my surprise, he was a FAR better political campaigner than I imagined. I plan to keep his feet to the fire, but it's been a great day so far.

The ABC panel of Know It All's is commiserating on the disaster. They really cannot think past the old lies they made up and retold for HRC's campaign. They are retelling the lie that Russia helped Trump win because Trump praised Putin's leadership style and plans to end NATO.

I have friends who's kids are crying because they think we'll be bombed now. I'm thinking "Hillary was the one who wanted to initiate World War III over Syria, not Trump.".

In the end, for me, if a conflict isn't worth a nuclear weapon, then it is unlikely to be worth us entering the fray entirely. "Limited engagements" tend to be anything but.

My hope: Ted Cruz as SCOTUS nominee, where he'd be an inspired choice. Antitrust suit against Google. Deep investigation of the email scandal (even better if Obama offers a full pardon, since it takes the Fifth off the table as an option. She won't be punished, but we can make sure history knows everything).

damikesc said...

I think the Dems could have won with Jim Webb, but they didn't want him.

He's the only one who could've won that ran. O'Malley is a clown and Sanders, as we saw from Wikileaks, was just there to be her Washington Generals.

So we'll probably get Warren in 2020. Or Michelle, though I'd be a bit surprised as I doubted the Obamas liked anything more than the trappings of the office which they keep forever anyway.

damikesc said...

The true loser in all of this is Canada...all those democrats that are going to move there now...

Now, it's probably totally not racist...but none of them seem interested in going to Mexico.

But, yeah, let's keep importing their poverty here.

"Trump's victory is a stark repudiation of not just Clinton, but of Obama, and of the Democrats' game of promising to help "the people" then governing as Republicans-lite, and acting as caretakers for the properties and prerogatives of the financial elites."

Bullshit! ~ Many voters, mostly Dems, stayed home:

2008 ~ Obama = 69.5 million /// McCain = 60 milion

2012 ~ Obama = 66 million /// Romney = 61 million

2008 ~ Hillary = 59,137,478 /// Trump = 59,025,041 so far as the totals will increase slightly in the next few days.

>

So, even McCain and Willard, at this time got more votes than Trump!

And Obama got 9.5 million more votes than Trump in 2008 when the eligible voter base was smaller.

As always, America gets the govt it deserves and America's voters are basically lazy. Congrats!

Also, both Trump and Hillary did a really good job suppressing the vote ie both had yuuuuuge unfavorables.

It will be interesting watching Trump's job approval the next (4) years. Indeed, he's sooooo frickin' unlikable from the get-go as many who voted for him don't like him already.

I yield back the balance of my time.

I dunno, I think Scott Walker, running apologetically like Trump, rather than the roll over and show your belly like the 'Republican' campaign consultants teach may have had a chance.

Not so fast. I read recently that unless you have a marketable skill or are otherwise self supporting, they really don't want you.
So. Welders, Doctors = OK. Come on in.

Actors and failed politicians = You better have enough cash to sustain yourself.
