Heidi & I have been watching national election news on NBC & PBS.

NBC claims to be very conservative on their projected winners, but so far it looks like the Republicans will retain the Senate, & Democrats may grab the majority in the U.S. House of Representatives.

As the NBC chances of Democrats gaining the majority in the House moved up to 80%, I muttered I wouldn't believe they could achieve that, until NBC said a 95% chance.

As of 8:00 PM tonight, NBC has the Democrat chances of grabing the majority in the House at 95%.

Sigh....

I really enjoy the political threads here. Thanks for starting this Fritz.

Two earlier threads that were discussing politics were "locked" by the site administrators. Very, very disappointing.

I'm holding back on some climbing content that I was going to post and I'm seriously considering dropping out of the Supertopo community. It's their site and they can do what they want. And if they continue f---ing it up, I'll do what I want.

Leave it alone guys, please?

Anyway, not surprisingly, the much-ballyhooed 'blue wave' doesn't sound like it's amounted to much. Still, I'm quite happy to see that the Dems are on track to take back the House. That should stop some of the bleeding, anyway.

Fox, NBC and CNN projects the dems taking the house.

It's still a blue wave, just not a blue tsunami.

RJ! Re your question:

The Inukshuks don't get involved in politics or much else, but they are still celebrating Halloween.

Anybody know what's up for Montana? Rosendale or Tester? Gianforte or Williams? The body slammer or intelligence? Farmer or Trumps puppet?

I do too. Injuries prevent me from climbing anymore so my entertainment comes from these threads.
