Election Night Bloodbath

Althouse is live-blogging, and what better clip to introduce the evening?

I came home around 4:30pm to meet my wife. We voted and picked up some dinner, and then my little boy at his after school program. The TV is on and I'm on Twitter and William Jacobson's live-event. Something of information overload here and I'm still filtering. I love NYT's headline, "Tea Party Victories Propel Republican Gains in Senate." And Stephen Green tweets, "The midwest, the south -- it's a bloodbath for the #Democrats."

2. Rand Paul's victory speech:

3. I just tweeted: "#Feingold Twitter stream reveals left's agony http://is.gd/gDXGG And see, "Tea Partier Beats Feingold‎."

And still on information overload, but here's a sweetie at the Sarasota Herald-Tribune, "Florida Congress: Democrat incumbents lose." And at WSJ, "Obama Is Dealt a Tough Hand: Depleted Democratic Ranks Forces Him to Choose Between Steering Left or Right."

4. California is toast http://is.gd/gE4wV http://is.gd/gE3ZD

That said, "President Doesn't Watch Midterm Election Train Wreck."

5. I'm not pleased with the People's Republic of California, and there's some deep corruption in Nevada, "Harrah’s Bosses Put Squeeze on Employees to Vote in Pro-Reid Effort."But it's a historic night overall. Signing off here with NYT, "G.O.P. Takes House in Setback to Obama: Democrats Are Positioned to Hold Senate Despite G.O.P. Gains."
