10:58pm: I realize I am late on this…McCaskill (D) over Akin (R) in Missouri. Sorry, I was too busy looking up Jennifer Rubin and Peggy Noonan tweets. Good times.

10:50pm: Follow returns at NYT and Politico. Both are faster at reporting results. They show 91% of vote counted in FL, Obama lead of 0.2%.

10:19pm: Forgot to link to this aggregator. Definitely gotta ask how he does it.

10:15pm: We’re switching to Fox News here. It’s kind of interesting to watch them react. The programming has the air of a party at someone’s house that has gone off the rails, but nobody can leave. Sarah Palin is still talking about the possibility of a Romney win.

10:00pm: I feel a sense of pleasure that I will not be eating any bugs soon.

9:52pm: Polls are coming in on the button. No surprises yet. Earlier, Romney said he had written a victory speech but not a concession speech. Seems like he should start planning for the possible need.

9:48pm: My information is a combination of CNN and CBS. Not controlling the TV, just going with the flow. Like Sarah Palin’s dead fish.

9:44pm: Donnelly (D) called as winner of IN-Sen. 48-46, again close to polling margin.

9:41pm: Warren (D) beats Brown (R) for MA-Sen. Not surprising, but congratulations Prof. Senator Warren!
