Read this: Election night follies, from coast to coast to your living room couch


Election night parties: Everyone's just a little too drunk, a little too drowsy. Sloshing chardonnay, deflating balloons, mobs of political dorks but no one on the dance floor. During Rand Paul's victory speech in Kentucky, "a supporter shouts 'Capitalism!' as one might shout 'Free Bird!'" More in Dan Zak's amusing nationwide roundup of the dissolute scene.

Of course if you were at home, then you saw the same thing Hank Stuever did on the teevee: Sarah Palin in "an elegant, soft Slanket clipped at the collar with a microphone"; Bill Hemmer totally kicking John King's butt in the dark art of electronic map touching; CNN's set, "a crowded and expensive steak house where they serve nothing but gristle" and everyone glares at Spitzer; and "the Muppet Babies band of young pontificators" all over cable.
