Chris Hayes' tribute to campaign workers

Chris Hayes just did a marvelous tribute to boots-on-the-ground campaign workers, local to national. Very well done, made me tear up on a Saturday morning. Hope it will be available on video for those who missed it!

Mitch McConnellís Republican Party Can Meet Me In The Middle and Kiss My Ass

Margaret, it appears that rape remains unpopular among likely voters, gays are people too, and Rocky Mountain High isnít just a song. It isnít final yet, but at the time that I am writing this, Michele Bachmann, bless her heart, might not be too popular with voters either. And while he wasnít actually running for anything, Donald Trump proved to be unpopular with just about everyone.

Once the real news called the race for Obama, I tuned into Fox News to see if Carl Rove was giving refunds. I had to laugh at the meltdown that was happening. Carl wanted a recount in Ohio and some blonde woman with too much make-up lamented about the inconvenient truth of Hurricane Sandy. Evidently Sandy and fraudulent voters had given the election unfairly to Obama. Honey, Hurricane Sandy reminded us that we had a good man in the White House much the same way Hurricane Katrina reminded us that we had an idiot in the White House. And fraudulent voters are about as common as unbiased reporting on Fox News. I had to turn the channel back to the more civil CNN coverage with that lovely Anderson Cooper. Too much Fox makes me itch.

After running for President for nine hundred years, Mitt Romney accepted defeat and gave a surprisingly short and genuinely gracious concession speech. I was touched, truly touched, when he called for unity and wished the President success. President Obama too gave a lovely speech. He always gives lovely speeches. It was tad bit long and I must admit I drifted off a couple of times. I am old and it was getting late.

Four years ago he invited us to participate in the job of rebuilding and making this a better country. We took his lesson to heart and last night proved that together there is nothing that WE cannot do. Congratulations to President Obama and to the people of this remarkable country. May we always remember that we are better together.

Andrea Mitchell is interviewing Boss Hogg.

Pafreakingthetic, MSNBC. If we wanted to watch slop we'd be tuning in to Fox.

"Tomorrow we begin a new tomorrow."

So says Mitt Romney on this last day before the election.

Ye gods.

All those phone calls! And the doorbell keeps ringing!

Yeah, people are growing weary of the campaigns. But every time Romney opens his mouth he provides further incentive for our GOTV efforts. My part of that is the data entry for phone banks and canvassing. For all the complaining about the knocks and calls, I've decided that some people just like those phone calls. At this point, what else could possibly explain those who are still undecided?

G'night, y'all. It's been a lonnnnggg day of entering data. Two more days...
