The nets are all projecting Walker has won, but it's till too close to call, really.

I guess we (progressives) should take comfort in how close it is, but....seriously :angry-cussing:

NBC just called for Walker, he's up by almost 100,000 with 26% in. I don't know if Madison & Milwaukee have reported returns. Fuck fuck fuck. :angry-cussingblack:

Fuuuuuck. I'm not surprised. The Koch brothers et al. seemed to make a project of making him win. Democracy in action, folks.

There is not enough facepalm in the world for this.

And Smuggar is on Twitter saying the "liberal media" isn't talking about it, yet it is the only thing I'm seeing on CNN and MSNBC.

Wonder what Smugs defines as liberal media, then.

WTF are you folks crazy or what?

Hey, as for me and my house, we voted Barrett! ;)

But in all seriousness, local stations are projecting Walker, and I'm sitting alone thinking about cracking another Scotch Ale. If Walker wins, I think our state is too divided and too angry to allow anything to get done until the end of his term. It's unfathomable, UNFATHOMABLE, with the amount of recall signatures we turned in and the organizing that was done, that Walker is leading. But, then again, he traveled all over and got all sorts of cashola for sucking Koch. :(

Maybe of the Dems had picked someone besides the guy who lost to Walker last fall .... I dunno. I didn't vote for Barrett in the primaries, but of course I supported him in this election. I'm angry. I'm home alone with a sleeping toddler and the dogs. I'm trying to be hopeful, but this blows.

"Sucking Koch" is an amazing expression. May I borrow it?

I just wanted to add that a local station reported that people are still in line to vote at the polls ... which were set to close at 8. All those people still need to vote. Barrett, don't you dare concede until every vote is cast and counted!!

My vote was lost during the great Carter debacle on the left coast.

Please hold on Wisconsin. :cry:

Journal-Sentinel is calling him too.

Hey, I'm one of 'those' folks and I am not crazy. I voted, and not for Walker.

There are just far too many crazies here in my state these days. It's not a good place to be and not just because of our asshat governor and the polarized political environment he created. We've been headed for the pits of absurdity for quite a while. Walker just sped up the process and the recall put it into overdrive.

Wisconsin has a lot of red...I'm not holding my breathe. Though if anyone fleeing from Wisconsin would like to crash with me feel free to!

Don't come to NY, the Walker win will just give our governor the guts to strip bargaining rights from workers here. Once again...FUCK. FUCK. FUUUUUUCK!!!!!!!!!!

I am so goddamn sick of losing.

My desire to leave has been growing in the last five years or so. I hate to pull a hollywood card and say "I'm leaving if...." but, it's getting damn close. Not just this election; like I said, things are going to hell fast around here. We're already among the worst states for retirement because of the effed up taxes. So much just sucks. I want out and have for a while. This is just another push towards figuring out the best way to do that.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.

      I have a chance to undergo esketamine treatment for depression.  If any FJers have any thoughts, I’d appreciate them.
