How we’re going to blog the election tonight; Update: Live coverage begins!

posted at 4:21 pm on November 6, 2012 by Allahpundit

There’s only so much order you can impose on the chaos created by a magnitude 10.0 newsquake but between the four of us we’re going to try. Here’s a quick and dirty guide to our plan so that you know what to expect tonight. The easiest way to do this, we think, is to split up the labor according to poll closing times for key battleground states across the U.S. The breakdown:

7 p.m. ET to 8 p.m.: Ohio, Virginia, North Carolina
8 p.m. ET to 9 p.m.: Florida, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire
9 p.m. ET to 10 p.m.: Wisconsin, Colorado, Michigan, Minnesota
10 p.m. ET to 11 p.m.: Iowa, Nevada

We’ll have four separate threads, one for each of these groups, on the front page. I’ll take the 7 p.m. group, Erika will cover the 8 p.m. crowd, MKH will handle the 9 p.m. slot, and Ed will join in at 10 p.m. Each of us will be updating our respective threads on those states throughout the night. Any other commentary we have about the election generally or about a state we’re not assigned to cover will be posted in the Greenroom, so it’ll be worth it to open up the master page in a separate tab and check in periodically. Should be lots of material in there. On top of all that, Ed will be co-hosting the Hugh Hewitt show tonight beginning at 6 p.m. ET; you can watch it here beginning at 6pm Eastern.

Prepare for a clusterfark, in other words, but hopefully a happy one. (One way to prepare: Make sure you know the basics of the electoral math.) To tide you over until showtime, here’s a rewarding Onion bit about the stupid predictability and predictable stupidity of social media today. (How bad is it out there? Dude.) It’s funny but profane, so please observe your official content warning.

Update (Ed): We’ve already begun our coverage on the Hugh Hewitt Show — so be sure to watch us live!

This just in: all exit polls in battleground states are being conducted by the Black Panthers behind a mural of O under the auspices of UN observers.

Everything should be just fine.

” Interviewing for the 2004 exit polls was the most inaccurate of any in the past five presidential elections as procedural problems compounded by the refusal of large numbers of Republican voters to be surveyed led to inflated estimates of support for John F.

malkinmania on November 6, 2012 at 6:41 PM

First off, you guys have been great. Let’s just hang in there little bit more. Mitt will win this.

OT:

Chris Christie is at it again. It is looking more likely that the fat Charlie Crist known as Chris Christie will someday pull an Arlen Specter. From Andrew McCarthy’s latest:

Here in New Jersey — where for many of us it is day 8 without power (or, if you’re counting, day 6 since Governor Christie and President Obama congratulated each other on what a great job they’d done) — our starstruck governor has apparently gotten over his weepies at Bruce Springsteen’s finally deigning to acknowledge his existence. Christie took a brief time-out from gushing over the president’s very presidential parading to blast ”know nothing, disgruntled Romney staffers” for making “noise” about his allegedly declining to appear on Sunday at a Romney campaign rally in the Philadelphia suburbs (i.e., conveniently close to Trenton).

Christie denies that there was any such invitation and insists he has had an understanding with Gov. Romney: If the hurricane hit as it was forecast, he would not be asked to do any more Romney campaign events because his place would obviously be in New Jersey for Obama campaign events managing the crisis. While he did not go so far as to call these know-nothing disgruntled Romney staffers sharia “crazies”, Christie did grouse that they obviously figured Romney would lose and were therefore “try[ing] to look out for other people to blame” as their glory days passed them by.

Let’s quit making excuses for the turncoat Chris Christie.

I should just switch over to the Food Channel for a while.

I remember taking a vacation to Disney over Thanksgiving with the kids and the grandparents and staying in a great Holiday Inn and watching the chad counting going on.
