AP calls NC: WE ARE BLUE!!!!

Josh Marshall has the details from AP:

President-elect Obama has won North Carolina, a symbolic triumph in a state that hadn't voted for a Democrat in more than a generation.

The Associated Press declared Obama the winner Thursday after canvassing counties in North Carolina to determine the number of outstanding provisional ballots.

That survey found that there are not enough remaining ballots for Republican John McCain to close a 13,693-vote deficit.

DailyKos has a newly adjusted map. I'm finding myself just staring at it. It's been a long, long, long, long, long, long time coming.


Good News!

Comparison of Maps

This is the state map, which is pretty blue.

This is the state map which is a cartogram, where state size are based on population.

For now, we are a blue country.

Jesus Swept ticked me off. Too short. I loved the characters and then POOF it was over.

Oh Happy Day

I may have to change my name. KeepNCBlue.
that is a happy change.

This blog was a player in this. In fact, if McC had known about the Internet and used it, he too could have learned a lot about what our country is about.


the bloods vs. the crypts

This presidential election doesn't mean that North Carolina is "blue" (CNN political strategy-speak nonsense), it means that this year, more voters decided that the Republicans sucked more than the Democrats than the other way around.

So don't go prancing around like the Republicans have done the past few years thinking that this gives you the right to shove your corporate agenda down our throats. Some of us don't want to be ruled by either gang of sycophants and control-freaks.

The "Crypts" ??!!!????

Which "crypts" are you referring to, Paul M?

He means Crips.

Kinda sad. He can't even get his insults right, much less his politics.

Person County Democrats

I actively oppose gerrymandering. Do you?

You know TurnNKeep the majority of those politicians

that have embraced the internet and heavily participate in venues like ours seem to have been pretty successful.

No matter that patriotism is too often the refuge of scoundrels. Dissent, rebellion, and all-around hell-raising remain the true duty of patriots.

Blue across the board

I voted for Obama, Hagan, Price, and Perdue & my votes counted in a battleground state... that is awesome
