No reconciliation tonight

As posting may go on fairly late. Or it may not! Most of the thoughts one has on election night are Twitter-appropriate one-liners rather than blog-appropriate analytical judgments, and so you may want to follow along there, too.

Speaking of which, it looks like Rand Paul is the new senator from Kentucky. Score one for Aqua Buddha.

"it looks like Rand Paul is the new senator from Kentucky. Score one for Aqua Buddha."

sounds like election results, circa 1955.

Enjoy the election results Ezzie--work harder next time posing as a JOURN o list to spread your nonsense to the lemming readers of this lousy paper--they need you to tell them what to think being the useless liberals they are.

Lawrence O'Donnell outlined a nightmare scenario last night that has lodged and won't let go. When the vote is called to raise the debt ceiling, what will Rand Paul do? He has promised to work on the deficit. If the new republicans vote NOT to raise the debt ceiling, The US goes into default - for the first time in history. The dollar crashes. Instantly. Cascading depressions follow around the world. Who do we negotiate with? China. I would never bet money on something being too stupid for a politician to do, but is this really possible? How likely are these guys to destroy the United States to stand by a principle?
