I don't know if CNN meant this

But they cut to commercial and did the usual thing of presenting advertisers.

“Election Night in America. Brought to you by Borat!”

Dead.

The one nice thing about today? Voting went smoothly

Yes, in a nation of 340 million, there are going to be problems in this place or other. Elections are locally administered. There will be hiccups.

But after the media hyped up a Mad Max style Election Day, we’ve seen a peaceful, orderly process play out.

That is just a first step. We still have to make all those votes count. That’s a big battle.

But the casting of votes was actually almost boring today.

This is a good thing for our democracy.

Bill Maher on voter suppression

This was really good.

Pope endorses civil union laws for same-sex couples

As someone who grew up gay and Catholic, I certainly never thought I’d see this one in my lifetime. While Francis is certainly liberal for a pope, I admit, I’m (happily) stunned.

CNN) Pope Francis has declared support for civil unions for same-sex couples for the first time, according to the Catholic News Agency.

The Pope made the historic remarks in a new documentary film, "Francesco," which was released in Rome on Wednesday.

"Homosexual people have a right to be in a family. They're children of God and have a right to a family. Nobody should be thrown out or be made miserable over it," the Pope said in the film, the Catholic News Agency reported.

Does anyone else feel like America hit its limit?

It’s easy to feel pessimistic about our country. We have so much work to do.

But this month feels like we’re turning around. That we’re just done with this man and the horror the Republican Party has become. More and more, I’m hearing from people who aren’t normally invested in politics. They’re over it. There’s a sense this just cannot go on. We’re going to lance this boil on our body politic.

Joe Biden was never my guy. I’m a progressive. He was my last choice. But now? I’m excited for everything about the man. He’s going to fix this, and we’re going to help him.

He Never. Answers. The Question.

Why have a moderator at all?

I'm not going to chill until Biden tests negative

I don’t get emotional about politics. Not worth the blood pressure. I do what I can, then attend to the other parts of my life.

However, I am a ball of anxiety this morning. Biden next to that screaming idiot. And we don’t know which campaign staffers were wandering and mixing on Tuesday.

I’m not freaking out, but, “Please be fine. Please be fine. Please be fine,” has been coming up in my head several times an hour since finding out about shit heel.

I like how Biden is going around Trump by looking into the camera

He’s talking to the people. Trump is flailing at whatever is in the room.

He paid 17,300% more to a porn star than his country

I want to see journalists ask evangelical leaders about that one.

“Why was quieting a porn star worth 17,300 times more than supporting the country he says he loves?”
