Thank You, Gen Z!

The kids are more than okay. The kids are fucking amazing.

On Tuesday, as we were all hiding under our desks bracing for that promised red wave, voters under 30 were calmly filling in those little ovals down at the fire station and the local elementary school. They stood in line for hours, they got educated on the issues, and they cast their ballots overwhelmingly for Democrats. Exit polling by CNN and NBC has roughly two-thirds of voters under 30 voting blue — the most Democratic age cohort by far.

Call them Gen Z plus younger Millennials, call them your kids, call them new voters, just call them and say thank you for saving our asses. Or, actually, don't call them — they hate to talk on the phone. But send them a text and tell them you see and appreciate what they did on Tuesday.

Because those kids kicked Kevin McCarthy in the dick, depriving him of a mandate, even if he winds up with a single-digit majority in the House. And when Nevada Senator Catherine Cortez Masto pulls ahead of that weenus Adam Laxalt this afternoon, ensuring that we hold the Senate no matter what happens in the Georgia runoff, it'll be thanks to them. In fact, without the kids, you're probably looking at a Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, with a comfortable two- or three-seat margin, despite Donald Trump saddling the GOP with the absolute shittiest candidates ever.

Don't Know Who Needs To Hear This, But The Sonic In Rifle, Colorado, Has A Job Opening

No really, we looked, because we are a goddamned journalist.

As of right this moment as we type this, there is no declared winner in Colorado's Third Congressional District, but the normal and human and nice Democrat named Adam Frisch leads the opposite of all that, Lauren Boebert, by 64 votes. They probably won't call it, and it will go straight to a recount.

As a reminder, these were the candidates' closing messages:



Right. We are not ready to expend any energy on that, beyond to say that we hope Lauren Boebert gets the election result she deserves and that there is minimal interruption to her health insurance coverage.

We'll keep you posted.

Let's Enjoy Rick Scott's Incompetence One More Time Before The Midterms

It's Your Pre-Election Day Sunday Show Rundown!

Tomorrow is Election Day! Finally!

The ads will take a short break and we will either have a chance to make progress or hand power to a party that will spend the next two years plotting a do-over on their insurrection.

Oklahoma! How Did We Forget Oklahoma!

I'm blaming Joe Biden.

Yr Editrix had a really good question in the Chatcave: "Turns out there's two senate races in Oklahoma, and the Democrats are both women named Horn. I feel like I should have known that before three days before the election, DOK." And indeed, it appears that the spreadsheet of Senate elections this year did not have "Oklahoma" checked off.

Man, I am disappointed in that spreadsheet, because it really let me down. I bet it's Joe Biden's fault.

But yes indeedy, there are two US Senate races in Oklahoma this year. One is the regular cycle election in which Sen. James Lankford, who is TERRIBLE, is running for reelection to a second term, and the other is a special election to fill out the remaining four years in the term of senior Sen. James Inhofe, who announced in March that he would retire at the end of the year. At least we managed to cover that.
