Morning Examiner: Coffee Party candidate got DOZENS of votes!

Democrat Rep. Barney Frank’s graceless, classless victory speech is 10 minutes long, and gets worse with each minute.

“Coffee Party” House candidate Jeff Reed gets 0.1% of the vote in MO-9, beats other write-in candidate who apparently didn’t even vote for himself (zero votes). Congratulations to Agence France-Presse for identifying a critical trend of Election 2010!

Dale Peterson-endorsed candidate wins for Alabama Agriculture Commissioner. He gives a rip about Alabama.

Some House races still outstanding, and not just WA-SEN. In NY-25, Rep. Dan Maffei, D, in peril, pending absentees. Supposedly 25,000 more votes to count in CA-11, where Democratic Rep. Jerry McNerney leads by 121 votes.

Plouffe, fresh from losing in Pennsylvania, comes to the White House. Thank his “let’s move Left” blueprint for yesterday’s results.

40,000 votes for the Rent is Too Damn High guy.

JSTREVINO on Twitter: Toomey’s been a Sen-elect for 24 hours, and already AP says he may be too conservative to get reelected.

I was watching MSNBC on election night. For the laughs.
