News reports are claiming Begich wins Alaska.  Convicted Felon Ted Stevens seems to be toast…perhaps he can work on getting President Bush to grant him that pardon. 

60 Senate Seats…getting closer and closer.

The Road to 60.

Okay.  Just when I thought we were done, I’ve realized we are not!  WHOO HOO!!

I earlier called Alaska for convicted felon (isn’t that fun?) Ted Stevens, but Begich is gaining steadily.  He is now leading by 2,374 votes.  Alaska…I’m getting prouder by the count.

In addition, we have a Senate run off in Georgia.  Jim Martin is seeking to upset the Republican Party’s nasty Saxby Chambliss.  Yeah, I hate that guy.  I know I’ve mentioned it before, but it really doesn’t get old for me.  I’ve also mentioned every Democrat possible should get their behinds to Georgia to give Jim Martin a hand…and that includes our President Elect Barack Obama.

And the final race to reach 60 brings me to one of my favorite states, Minnesota.  This is Paul Wellstone’s seat.  It will always be Senator Wellstone’s seat to me.  They are currently getting ready to start the recount between Al Franken (I’ll admit I’m a fan…love that guy’s books) and Norm the suit wearing worm Coleman.  Now from what I hear the recount may favor Franken.  Apparently the districts with issues are Franken friendly territory, so keep your fingers crossed!

So…we need Alaska, Georgia, and Minnesota to see our dream of 60 come true.  Keep your fingers crossed…or better yet, uncross those fingers and make some phone calls!!!

Mark Begich is gaining on convicted felon Ted Stevens for the Senate seat up for grabs in Alaska.  How sad is it that this popular and successful mayor is not kicking old balls ass? 

FYI, he leads by 1022 votes with approximately 25,000 left to be counted.

I’ll admit, a few days ago I had thought Ted Stevens had won the Senate race is Alaska.  Stevens, if you didn’t know -ha-ha- has been convicted on seven (7) felony counts.  It appears though with approximately 40,000 votes to be still counted Mark Begich is leading by 806 votes. 

Begich is the popular Mayor of Anchorage.  He was first elected in 2003 and was reelected in 2006 by a healthy margin.

Alaska Still Undecided?

Apparently there are approximately 45,000 votes still to be counted in Alaska.  Fox is claiming Mark Begich has taken a 3 vote lead over convicted felon Ted Stevens.

First off, read that again!  Convicted FELON!  Seven felony accounts! 

I also would like to point out I got this from FOX NEWS, so I’m not entirely sure it’s accurate!

My last point to be made, lets all cross our fingers Begich wins…or we could end up listening to Sarah for the next 6 years in the Senate.  YIKES!!

What is Wrong with Alaska??

Okay.  Seriously.  WTF is wrong with the people of Alaska.  And I’m not talking about the people who voted for Mark Begich.  I mean you really gotta hand it to Republicans in Alaska.  You just elected a man convicted of seven, I repeat seven, charges of violating federal ethics laws.  Well done.

And I haven’t even mentioned Sarah Palin…  Need I say more?!

That Beautiful Magical Number: 60

60.  The new 20.  No, not really, but a pretty great number if the Democrats can make it happen.  Imagine it, we get Barack Obama and Joe Biden in the White House…but that’s not all we have for our winners Johnny, we’ve got a clear majority in the Senate.  Sixty seats!  This is where the crowd goes wild!  We also have a growing majority in the House of Representatives.   

Whoo hoo baby.  Good times are coming.

What seats are up for grabs?  How do we get to 60?  I’m glad I asked!  Let me tell you!

Democrats are leading or gaining in…

New Mexico:  Tom Udall leading Steve Pearce in this once held Republican seat

Alaska:  Mark Begich tied up with incumbent Ted I’m a Crook Stevens

Colorado:  Mark Udall beating Bob Schaffer in another open formerly Republican seat

North Carolina:  Kay Hagen is giving incumbent Elizabeth Dole a run for her money.

New Hampshire:  Jeanne Shaheen is giving incumbent John Sununu Hell.

Minnesota:  Al Franken is knocking down incumbent Norm the Worm Coleman

Oregon:  Jeff Merkley has another incumbant in trouble, Gordon Smith

Georgia:  Jim Martin is gaining on Saxby I’m a Real Jackass Chambliss

Kentucky:  Bruce Lunsford gaining on Mitch McConnell
