Virginia News Headlines: Election Day (Go Obama!)


Here are a few Virginia (and national) news headlines, political and otherwise, for Election Day, November 6, 2012. Go Obama (and Democrats everywhere)! Polls in Virginia are, as always, open from 6 am until 7 pm – go vote, and don’t let anyone you know forget to vote. For more motivation, check out President Obama’s emotional final rally of the campaign, before a huge crowd “where it all began,” late last night in Des Moines, Iowa.

*The trouble with Obama’s Silver lining (Michael Gerson – George W. Bush’s speechwriter, which really says it all! – gets the award for most absurd, most insipid, most idiotic final column of the 2012 election season — and that’s really saying something! Check out the top comments, which begin: “So when Gerson writes a spiteful and hate-filled column about the president every few days, that’s considered part of a ‘noble enterprise’? Spare me. Nate Silver at least doesn’t have a raging moral superiority complex.”)

*Nov. 5: Late Poll Gains for Obama Leave Romney With Longer Odds (Speaking of Nate Silver, who has more intelligence in his left toenail than Michael Gerson has in his entire body…91.6% chance of an Obama victory today. Now let’s do it!)

*President Obama crushes Romney in Hart’s Location, New Hampshire (Hahahaha.)

*Romney changes his tune (“In the last days of his campaign, he is an almost entirely different candidate.” This guy gives me vertigo!)

*Virginia voters finally get to have their say Tuesday

*While polls show Kaine has an edge, GOP turnout and organization could even the equation (Let’s make sure the equation is NOT evened – GOTV!)

*Voters settle Virginia’s marquee Senate race today

*Editorial: The election’s end is in sight (“After suffering through a painful, partisan election season, Virginians finally can cast their ballots.”)
