Nerds must stick together


After all the anticipation, all the stupid Star Wars attack ads and the other stupid ads and even more stupid lying ads, the special election for Georgia's Sixth Congressional District was today -- polls are open until 7 PM Eastern, which is the time zone Georgia is in, conveniently, which means there's a tad under an hour and a half left for people to vote. Here is where to find your polling place, unless it is full of lies.

Then we'll all sit down and watch the returns on the TV, and make jokes about Steve Kornacki looking like Scooter from the Muppet Show, and because the polling had the race at about even, we'll probably wait forever for the votes from one stupid precinct to come in. Then again, it's just one district, so there's no telling -- it might go right quick.

While you're waiting for the first returns to come in, you might take another look at why Karen Handel is a jerkface voting suppression doer, or at why the voting machines in Georgia suck, or why Jon Ossoff isn't really Nancy Pelosi, or if you're tired of election stuff you could read about that Florida Pork Chop again, we do not care.

Will Yr Wonkette be liveblooging? Nah, but Yr Dok Zoom will hang out in the Open Thread with you, as long as you send beer money. That's what the "Donate" clicky is down there for. Also keeping Wonkette alive.

It is your OPEN THREAD!

UPDATE 10:36EDT: So it goes.

Also, some perspective from Joy Reid:

And so we get ready for this year's gubernatorial elections in New Jersey and Virginia, and we'll see you in the morning.

His quest to avoid prolixity is not going so great.

Fox News has been LI'L BIT CONFUSED about how to cover Donald Trump's treason meeting with Vladimir Putin. There was a lot of tut-tutting from Fox's daytime journalists (the "real" ones) on Monday, but then it was Double Dipshit Time on Monday night as Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity took over the commentary. Carlson found the real election hackers (brown Mexican people who either move to America and become legal citizens who vote or brown Mexican people who are just born here, as if THAT is allowed!) and declared that Russian meddling is like number 115 on the list of things that threaten America. (The other 114 are the blacks and the Mexicans and the gypsies, because Tucker Carlson is a white supremacist.) Meanwhile, Hannity hosted Donald Trump for some kind of mutual lick-off session where Trump said that Putin had informed him that there was NO COLLUSION. It's good to have a KGB handler who remembers stuff like that!

But even then, there was a hopeful moment! Fox News's Chris Wallace committed an actual act of journalism Monday night when he interviewed Vladimir Putin, going so far as to stick Robert Mueller's indictments in the Russian leader's stupid fucking face and dare him to read them. He even asked Putin why he constantly murders people with poison. GO GET HIM, CHRIS WALLACE!

Usually the next morning's "Fox & Friends" is like Carlson and Hannity's afterbirth, but Tuesday morning was a little bit different! For some reason, Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade and Abby Huntsman were not 100% pleased with Dear Leader's behavior in Helsinki! So they put on their Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski masks and did their best impression of a more dumber version of "Morning Joe," and oh my god it was SO WEIRD. Like, they would be outraged for a second, but then they would immediately compliment him and reassure him that he is a Very Good Boy who won that presidential election fair and square.

In what seems like a perfectly logical move where corporations are people, MGM International Resorts is suing all the victims of the Las Vegas massacre in federal court. But don't worry -- at least the company isn't seeking damages from them for its own corporate pain and suffering! Instead, the lawsuit is a maneuver to head off liability claims related to the mass shooting last October 1, as is only right and just. All they want is what's coming to them, like immunity from damages and some ill will from consumers, which will no doubt blow over eventually.
