   Can the GOP Etch-a-Sketch a Romney win, or will Obama debut a revival of Les Miseromney? Will the Senate get teabagged, or will voters shut that whole thing down? Will CNN debut the Emergency Blitzer Hologram? It's your Election 2012 thread

And, now that his prominence has risen dramatically, an additional question: Will 538's servers melt before the first polls close?

Well, the largest political thread on record (according to the Top Comments page) is the HCR voting thread, at 8573 comments, so we have a high bar to clear. :)

We've been melting the servers in the football threads, so I can't see how they wouldn't choke, at least once.

Mike has been doing some upgrades and such and he's hopeful that fark won't crash.

Now, the real question is which will crash first? Twitter or Fark?

Dixville Notch was a tie! We got a horse race ladies and germs!

After the election someone please take the phrase "horse race" behind the barn and shoot it. Thanks

It's plain ridiculous that we continue to allow the weather to have an impact on elections. As Bathia Mapes can attest to, we here in Oregon know how to do elections. I only hope other states will come join us in the 21st century sooner than later.

Are the results from that one hamlet in yet?

Y'know, the town with like 50 people in either Vermont or NH that pride themselves on being the first in the country to vote. Polls open at 12.01am and close once everybody's finished voting (usually before 1).

So what are we looking at here? Plutocratic theocracy or a thousand years of darkness?

I'm told it's going to be one or the other.

Anyway, it's very late and I already voted. Since we won't be able to call the election one way or another for at least 19 hours, I'll head to bed now and pop in sometime tomorrow.

Wow, we're kicking this shiat off early!

Just got my card for DC in the mail the other day, but I still have an MD license so I will go to the polls and see what they say. If I can't vote, I'll survive.

Think I may blow a few hours tonight creating amusing PSs!

Indeed. Voted two weeks ago in the great state of Oregon - no lines at the kitchen table.

Go big O! Four more years of a grownup at the helm.
