I hadn’t planned on live-blogging the election returns…

…after all, I’m not a political blogger, except occasionally and maybe once every four years. If I’m still blogging four years from now, we’ll see if I feel like morphing into a political blogger again, just for one day.

However, I found this nifty little widget that does the job for me:

There, you can just keep coming back to this page to follow election night returns. Of course, it is MSNBC; so its projections may or may not be accurate, but over time it will have to tell the story, as more and more returns come in.

Now, I suppose I’ll have to think about analyzing that study that several of you have been sending to me while I’m watching the election returns. I have to admit, I haven’t seen a study quite so bad in a while, so much so that I’m not sure I want to subject my brain to the pain just to provide blog material for your entertainment, edification, and enlightenment tomorrow. I go to great lengths for my readers, but I do have limits.

Ah, hell, I’ll probably do it, but it’ll definitely take a couple of beers.

By Orac

Orac is the nom de blog of a humble surgeon/scientist who has an ego just big enough to delude himself that someone, somewhere might actually give a rodent's posterior about his copious verbal meanderings, but just barely small enough to admit to himself that few probably will. That surgeon is otherwise known as David Gorski.

That this particular surgeon has chosen his nom de blog based on a rather cranky and arrogant computer shaped like a clear box of blinking lights that he originally encountered when he became a fan of a 35 year old British SF television show whose special effects were renowned for their BBC/Doctor Who-style low budget look, but whose stories nonetheless resulted in some of the best, most innovative science fiction ever televised, should tell you nearly all that you need to know about Orac. (That, and the length of the preceding sentence.)

DISCLAIMER:: The various written meanderings here are the opinions of Orac and Orac alone, written on his own time. They should never be construed as representing the opinions of any other person or entity, especially Orac's cancer center, department of surgery, medical school, or university. Also note that Orac is nonpartisan; he is more than willing to criticize the statements of anyone, regardless of of political leanings, if that anyone advocates pseudoscience or quackery. Finally, medical commentary is not to be construed in any way as medical advice.
