This is the first year I tweeted my way through a long Election Night and Election Morning After. I started things off before the polls closed: "Going to be a long night. I'll stay awake by practicing saying 'Speaker Boehner,' 'Senator Rubio,' and 'Senator Paul' with a Greek accent." As the GOP wave rolled across the country: "Haven't heard a single GOP winner say he/she would touch defense spending. Good luck with that budget deficit." When the wave stopped in Nevada: "I guess we'll never find out what Sharron Angle thinks of the two wars we're fighting." Then, sifting through the post-election ashes: "28 Blue Dogs lost. I wonder if they're now reconsidering their efforts to trim the stimulus and make it less effective." and "Sen. DeMint to Tea Party: 'you must now overcome determined party insiders.' Good luck, Mitch McConnell!" 140 characters never felt so shellacked. Thank God there are 730 days left until the next Election Night!
