Barret is only leading in seven counties at the moment, with another three reporting nothing.

It is going to be close. The Democrat strongholds won't report their results until they know how many votes they need.

I love Palin, but she looks awful today!

It's her hair. She just needs to get her bangs trimmed - they're almost down into her eyes.

“I love Palin, but she looks awful today!”

Post a picture of YOU right HERE and let’s compare HER to YOU and see who looks more “awful”.

Just sayin’.

You just can’t compare money spent. The huge infusion of outside union labor is an in-kind contribution above and beyond cash.

I hate to crap on everyone’s party, but this won’t be over if Barrett is within 5 percent at the final. There are cases of ballots on hand to count AFTER the official count is taken.

I think you are right.A few of the honest polsters did call it for Walker.But I don’t recall any of the majors calling such a huge wipeout should this margin be sustained.

Laurence Odonnel just declared the real winner tonight is Barack Obama!

He is in the minds of the far left fringe. I haven't heard this spin yet, just made it up myself, but it's a clever one: "Obama is the big winner because this vote proves the American people want to keep incumbents in office. There is no support for changing leadership at the start of Obama's economic recovery." I imagine 90% of libs would fall for that.

When someone looks gorgeous, every day. Every picture, every interview, every event... It was a different look today. If you saw her, you'd see what I was referring to.

Not that it's important. She may be under the weather. She was on her game during the interview. She called the union leaders THUGS!!!! I was thrilled at that.

Gov’nor Walker didn’t go down
Those yet unborn will get to know him
Believe him winning with a number of men (and woman)
Sure expect to see him again

It’s a joy, Mrs. Walker, it’s a joy!
It’s a joy, Mrs. Walker, it’s a joy!
He won! He won! He won!

Correct, however if anyone believes that all Barrett received was 6M outside cash is smoking blunts...
Unions took one to the boys tonight, however predictable looking at how many people quit the Union when they had a choice to quit.
