unknownEveryone I know was totally exhausted yesterday. Between the late (East Coast) election ending to the emotional toll of the weeks preceding the glorious outcome, most of us were just plain spent. However, it is a new day and I am still basking in the afterglow of the victory and admittedly enjoying the schadenfreude moments. It turns out the fundamentals of the Republican Party are NOT strong. I am enjoying the finger pointing and the blame game. It that childish? Absolutely! Does it feel grand? You betcha!

–  Nightmare scenario for you: Alaska’s Ted Stevens resigns, Sarah Palin resigns and in a back office deal has her Lieutenant Governor appoint her the new Senator from Alaska (then she could work with new Vice President Biden who she thinks controls the Senate). Aurgh!

–  Letterman was pretty funny last night:

–  This is the time when the political junkies separate out from the sometime politicos. You know who you are? The sometime junkies get involved only when there are elections in view or when something really big breaks. Us 24/7 junkies love the details. So, if you are like me, enjoy the rumors floating about the new Obama cabinet.

–  This clip just cracked me up. Imagine that Karl Rove thinks Rahn Emanuel is too partisan? That’s rich!

–  Here’s Rachel on the new era:

–  Here’s a good one. Sarah Palin did not know Africa was a continent? WHAT? She had temper tantrums, blah, blah. blah. Juicy stuff for one and all.

–  Keith’s final Campaign Comment for you ( I happen to love when he goes all emotional on us):
