Virginia News Headlines: Election Day (Go Obama!)

by: lowkell

Tue Nov 06, 2012 at 06:00:06 AM EST

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.)
*Chris Christie Denied Mitt Romney Request To Appear At Campaign Event Days Ahead Of 2012 Election (Hey, it's the Jersey way! LOL)
*Endorsements for 2012 election (Obama, Kaine, No on Ballot Question #1)
*Now, it's the voters' turn to speak in race ("Polls show Obama with edge; Romney to campaign Tuesday in Pa. and Ohio.")
*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!)
*Allen, Kaine bask in glow of top of tickets ("At rallies, Senate rivals share stages with Biden, Romney")
*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.")
*Santorum gives final push for Romney in Harrisonbur (Yep, it's Mr. "Man on Dog" for Mr. "Dog on Roof!" LOL)
*Valley Campaigns Makes Final Push Ahead of Election Day
*Schmookler talks state of the race on Election Eve (Go Andy!)
*Will Eric Cantor remain a prominent Capitol Hill figure after Tuesday? (Probably, but let's hope not!)
*Editorial: Virginia's disenfranchised ("Virginia is still more restrictive than most states in restoring voting rights.")
*Full report on Vice President Joe Biden's visit to Roanoke (Gotta love the irrepressible Joe Biden - "Look at that size of that pie! Holy moley!")
*Ryan to make Election Day stop in Richmond
*The only poll that matters ("Voting remains the single most important means to support our democratic republic, the single biggest civic obligation of its citizens.")
*Stevie Wonder, backing Obama, plays to capacity crowd in Scope
*State Police spent nearly $33k on OT for October political rallies (Money well spent if you ask me.)
*Obama's success at filling judicial vacancies in Virginia
*D.C., Maryland residents help mobilize vote in Virginia
*Fairfax hopes for high turnout at new round of transportation meetings
*Shanahan: Quotes misinterpreted
*Freeze warning issued for D.C. area

Three questions: 1) Why are they on TV the night before the election talking about this f***ed up incident? 2) Why is Patrick Moran opening his mouth about this at all, when he's in potential legal jeopardy? 3) Why does Patrick keep thinking we're all idiots?
