Claire McCaskill Declares Victory in Missouri


McCaskill's people feel really good about their numbers holding up.  They're looking at their internals and where the votes have yet to come in.

You go, Claire!  Way to declare victory and seize the narrative.  With Tester hanging on in Montana, the Senate is in play, pending recounts and sellouts.

UPDATE:  Jim NoTalent is conceding, thanking Jesus, looking like he wants to cry.

UPDATE II:  Listen to these idiots on TV saying that all these wins for Democrats are not really. . . wins for Democrats.  People, fuck you.  I have one word for you:  MANDATE.  We're still pitching a shutout.

Pachacutec did not, as is commonly believed, die in 1471. To escape the tragic sight of his successors screwing up the Inca Empire he’d built, he fled east into the Amazon rain forest, where he began chewing lots of funky roots to get higher than Hunter Thompson ever dared. Oddly, these roots gave him not only a killer buzz, but also prolonged his life beyond what any other mortal has known, excluding Novakula. Whatever his doubts of the utility of living long enough to see old friends pop up in museums as mummies, or witness the bizarrely compelling spectacle of Katherine Harris, he’s learned a thing or two along the way. For one thing, he’s learned the importance of not letting morons run a country, having watched the Inca Empire suffer many civil wars requiring the eventual ruler to gain support from the priests and the national military. He now works during fleeting sober moments to build a vibrant progressive movement sufficiently strong and sustainable to drive a pointed stake through the heart of American “conservatism” forever. He enjoys a gay marriage, classic jazz and roots for the New York Mets.
