One could argue NLS was the best. Ben had multiple posts and called winners hours before the pundits on tv. The comment section was powered with emotion. Go back and read awhile! Great Job Ben.
The United Conservatives of Virginia submitted this morning after piece titled A Red Day, A Sore Day, And Then The Sun Rises! This will make you smile!
Hampton Roads Politics captured The Night in Pictures. Stop by and leave a comment.
XRLQ has called it “Black Tuesday”..I think many a Republican would agree.

NOVA Town Hall's Joe Budzinski welcomes the new leaders with his post Hey Brothers. Doobies anyone?
Leslie Carbone submits The Moral of the Story. She writes “Leave it to The Washington Post. Today's front page proclaims "A Voter Rebuke For Bush, the War And the Right". Nonsense. "A Voter Rebuke From the Right" would be more apt.” I would agree with that. Check it out!
Rocinante's Burdens has a recap called Election Hot Wash. Hot indeed!
Cathouse Chat asks All right then, What now? My blog Sis is right, saying “So, am I going to pitch a fit if the vote count shows my guy didn't win? No. Am I going to descend into ad hominem attacks? No. Am I going to continue to live my life in freedom and duty? Yes. Life goes on, my friends, and - believe it or not - politics is NOT the be-all and end-all of the Universe.” Indeed Sis! Go read the whole post!
James Tippins has this great post titled The Fruit of Sin | Healthy Church. A good read about the Haggard scandal.
