Original Story (10:45pm): The networks are bound by an code of honor not to call the election until after the polls close on the West Coast, but you can only deny reality for so long. With Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Colorado, Michigan and New Hampshire in his column, and guaranteed wins waiting to come in from California, Washington and Oregon, Barack Obama has won a second term as president.
Mitt Romney would have to win everything on the board at this point to win (although Florida is a dead heat), and that’s just about as likely to happen as his winning the Mr. International Leather title.
Time’s up for Mitt, no more attacks on the 47 percent and equality for gay Americans. The game’s over except for the counting.
