"The Best Is Yet To Come"

Considering I thought it was very possible that we might not know who won the election until this morning or even days from now, I guess I should be grateful that the thing that kept me up waaaaaay past my bedtime was waiting for Gov. Mitt Romney to deliver his concession speech and President Obama to give his victory speech. Watch President Obama’s passionate speech above, and check out Romney’s short but gracious speech after the jump.  Keep reading »

2012 Election Night Live Blog!

Well, our long national nightmare known as ELECTION SEASON is almost over. Later tonight, we will (probably) know who will be the President of the United States for the next four years. Will Barack Obama secure himself another term? Or will Mitt Romney succeed in getting me to move to Mexico? In addition to updating this post with relevant news as the returns come in, I’ll be sitting on my couch, bottle of cheap champagne in hand, livetweeting the whole nerve-racking debacle. You can follow me on Twitter at @xoamelia – where more of my bleeding heart liberal spewing will occur — and also @TheFrisky. Play our Election Night Drinking Game with me! It’ll be fun.

How are you going to get through the next 24 hours of election news, voting and results? If you’re anything like us, you’ll need a stiff drink or three to watch the votes roll in tonight. We are nervous as heck, and this drinking game should help us, and you, relax a little bit. Until the cold, harsh light of Wednesday morning hits us, anyway.

Celeb Endorsements
Obama and Romney have these celebs on their side. Read More »

I grew up in a house with a Democrat mom and a “Republican” dad. I put Republican in quotes because technically my dad wasn’t registered as anything — he did that to avoid jury duty or something — but he did like to argue with my mom and me about our progressive politics. And he definitely didn’t have strong enough convictions to ever publicly display a yard sign in support of his candidate. Not so for this equally divided house, where the husband’s public support of Mitt Romney prompted his wife to put up a conflicting sign. Ah, the struggles of the bipartisan household! [NYMag.com]

“Dillon is a classic American town filled with hard-working, middle-class Americans, who just want to lead productive, healthy lives. And the women we represented on the show — the women we are in real life — are like the millions of women across the nation. Women who want to make our own health care decisions. Women who want to earn equal pay for the work we do. Women who want affordable health care. In fact, it is President Obama who has shown his values to be more closely aligned with those represented by the phrase.  … So as women, let’s take ‘Clear Eyes, Full Hearts’ back and use it as it was always intended — as a motivator for progress, power, and greatness.”

– “Nashville” star Connie Britton and her former “Friday Night Lights” executive producer Sarah Aubrey penned an op-ed for USA Today taking Mitt Romney to task for co-opting the show’s slogan ”Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose” for his campaign. Tami Taylor is not happy, y’all! She explains how Obama’s positions on issues like fair pay, reproductive choice, and affordable health care would have helped various different characters on the show in real life.  [USA Today] [Photo: Splash News]
