ABC still refuses to call it. According to the official numbers, Bush has a lead in Ohio of 134,019. The official “provisional ballot” count is only at 110,361. There is no way Kerry wins the election.
Bush has triumphed. To repeat the stunning facts, Bush has received the most votes in history. It was one of the largest voter turnouts in history.
It has been a long night. I am tired. I took the opposite approach of my brother and binged.

There is much to celebrate as a conservative Christian tonight. We will have four more years of a conservative White House. We will enjoy (for the first time since 1900) Republican majorities in both the House and Senate. 11 states soundly passed Constitutional amendments defending traditional marriage. The major disappointment (as a Californian) is that our state decided to pass Proposition 71, funding stem-cell research.
Now that Bush has won, celebrate the promise of lower taxes by giving back. We’ll be toasting Bush with Starbucks tomorrow night.
