    Remember Cats, this is the place for all rumour & unsubstantiated stories.
    No matter how wild or crazy it is, post it immediately.
    Remember, though, you can’t say n*ts at the Cat anymore.

    Bother! I made my Squirrel Conspiracy comment on the other thread!

  4. feelthebern

    What did one squirrel say to the other squirrel?
    I can clearly see your n*ts.

  5. Big_Nambas

    CNN already starting the BS, “majority voted against Trump”.
    if this isn’t a very close vote I will be very surprised.
    Go the GOP.

    As a #Trump supporter, I’m loving these early numbers I’ve been seeing out of Indiana and Kentucky.

    Who’s ready to party like it’s November 8, 2016!?

  9. EvilElvis

    MSM Has Gone From “Blue Wave” To “No Idea What’s Going To Happen”

    Actually they’ve been stuck at ‘No Idea’ for a long time. Along with ‘Showing no self awareness’…

    Go Trump! At least so I can get this week’s talking point through my primary school age kids from their teachers. What a country…

  10. Armadillo

    I think I might watch this unfold live from one of the leftard news outfits. Should be much more entertaining.

    The only question now is “Which One”? Soo many to choose from.

  11. Confused Old Misfit

    Your ABC wants you to ask them hard questions like:

    Like did Taylor Swift’s call to vote really impact turnout? Or is the Electoral College a thing this time around?

  12. EvilElvis

    Oh no! The Democrat’s big hope is KY

    Oops, read that wrong! I thought Amy must be a lesbian and ‘big’ things are going ‘down’ at the after party!…

  13. Armadillo

    incredible senate figures in indiana:

    Indiana was the state that Sportsbet suspended betting on. That was a few days back. Somethings going on.

  14. Megan

    Go, you good things. I am relying on you for the usual brilliant standard of Cat commentary through my working day.

  15. Mrs Beardsley

    I don’t have Foxtel. I was going to go to the Pig n Whistle around noon, but maybe not. If home, I will be either watching ABC 24 or CRTV on Facebook.

  16. lotocoti

    CNN already starting the BS

    The Dems just have to win one seat to validate the America Turns Its Back On Trump lede.

  17. Tom

    When leftards go the early crow (they always do), remember the further voters and booths are from the filth-infected downtown areas, the more they favourite Republicans — and they’re always the last to be counted.

  18. Snoopy

    Indiana was the state that Sportsbet suspended betting on. That was a few days back. Somethings going on.

    Republican rigging. Obviously.

    NY Times but hey, looks a good site to use

  23. areff

    Will be interesting to watch Michigan, where the results are always late. Reason: when the votes are counted it takes them time to generate fresh Dem ballots to get the correct result.

  24. H B Bear

  26. Infidel Tiger

    The NYT’s has Kentucky as a “tossup” state.

    Barr on 59%.

    Polling in non-compulsory jurisdictions is not possible now.

  27. Infidel Tiger

    Hugely impressive person.

  28. feelthebern

    This thread is at merely Rowan Dean levels. Low energy.
    It needs to be elevated to Alex Jones level energy otherwise we’ll lose our key demographic.

  29. feelthebern

    Fresh in from Infowars.

    Reports in Florida that inter dimensional trannies are voting repeatedly up & down the state.
    In response, scrutineers are checking the packages of all voters to ensure people are who they say they are.

    Alex Jones has a massive thing for inter dimensional sex freaks.

  30. Armadillo

    TYT is currently have a break. Next segment is entitled “Aggressive Progressives”. I can hardly wait.

    Red eyes = Republican win.

  33. Leo G

    The Dems just have to win one seat to validate the America Turns Its Back On Trump lede.

    Partisans for Trump on one hand and for the extreme left of the Democrats on the other have been describing the mid-term election result as a referendum on DT. I doubt that the majority of US voters have voted with that intent.

  34. feelthebern

    So goes Guam, so goes the nation.

  40. calli

    Maddow is a Klingon?

    It makes sense.

  41. Kentucky 6 the first toss up of the night, currently D+0.6% with 6% reporting. Still very early.

  42. Tailgunner

    Montel, Guam? Really?
    I’ve just got back from Bunnings and as in 16 I’m going with Fox News for my election coverage.
    TYT is covered by Arma, yes?
    #NOBRAKES

  43. mh

    The US alternative media are doing a crap job covering this.

    Don’t panic. I won’t be reporting back what these idiots are saying. I’ll bear that cross on my own.

    Having said that, one of them was saying how he voted early stoned off his tits. The geeky dude who sits in front of his laptop. It’s going to be a long day.

    Best to just wait for the YouTube meltdown highlights Arma.
    Is that wall-approaching Armenian chick still on with Cenk?

    Death, you cover CNN please.
    Monty, what’s your source for the day?

  54. Armadillo

    This is a seat that was R+22% two years ago, mind you.

  59. Tailgunner

    Monty, I’m seeing neck&neck in Ky with 20% in. R slight lead.

    Now it’s all about the House.

    Yep, that’s the one

  64. Armadillo

    Ohh fuck this. I thought I might have the stomach for it. Apparently not. Enough is enough already.

    Can someone give me another link. Anyone? Even if it’s CNN, I’d be grateful.

    Give it a rest Monty, you loon.

  70. That last wad of Kentucky 6 votes evidently came from Lexington, i.e. an urban enclave where the Democrat leads by 20 points. And still only 59% reporting there.

  71. jupes

    Are the Outsiders having a Sydney ‘Trumps Aussie Mates’ party for the mid-terms anyone know?

    If so any Cat’s going?

  72. C.L.

    Status quo is huge victory for Trump.
    In fact, anything less than a massacre in the House is a huge victory for Trump.

  73. mh

    Monty, are you seeing the 40 plus house seats being flipped as you predicted?

  74. The not very bright Marcus

  76. Monty, are you seeing the 40 plus house seats being flipped as you predicted?

    Results are still too sparse and spotty to gauge that.

  77. C.L.

    A classic at ABC Online:

    Live together or perish together: Taking a lesson from Martin Luther King on Election Day.

    It’s all about how Trump is a Racist.
    Not mentioned by author John J. Thatamanil: Martin Luther King was assassinated by a Democrat.

    Yes,Tim Kaine.
    12% counted, he’s down 7 points

  83. Tailgunner

    Lol! Chick on Fox just dropped “Orange Man Bad” comment about never Trumpers 😀

  84. Tailgunner

    Grrr, Kaine is back in the game. Just behind now with 22% counted.

  85. Boambee John

    m0nty

    A sensible person who had thought about the issue, rather than regurgitated fascist left talking points would have answered JC’s question the following way.

    “Of course I believe in climate change. The climate has been changing for millenia. Why should it have stopped changing now?

    As for the anthropegenic impact, it must exist, even if only from the effect of the many urban heat islands that have developed around the world.

    While climate models suggest that there could be unfavourable impacts from this, measurements of increased greening of the planet and increasing crop yields suggest that there are also favourable effects.

    It would be sensible to take some steps that do not cause increased costs, until the actual impacts become clear.”

    As I said, a sensible person could have responded on these lines.

    But you responded, with “Shut up!”

  86. Boambee John

    Need to add “Whether the UHI impact is actually significant is far from clear.”

  87. Tailgunner

    Good stuff Arma.
    I’m on Clinton News Network now for some balance. Lol.

  88. Kentucky 6 now D+6.8% with 58% reporting. Another wad of Fayette county votes came in, up to 79% reporting there now.

  89. Tailgunner

    CNN still don’t understand the Panhandlers!

  96. Dem lead in Kentucky down to 0.3% with 70% reporting. Still have Louisville to report though, think that is going to get the Democrat home.

    There were probably 8 million votes cast in Florida’s 2018 election. With 7 million votes in,
    DeSantis leads Gillum by 28,754
    And
    Scott leads Nelson by 11,334

    Glad to hear it IT, but remember that Hillary Crimton was overwhelming odds on to be President.

    The big turnout worries me. Normally midterms have low turnout and that favours the Republicans, because Republican voters are so much better than Dems when it comes to getting off the couch and doing something. A big turnout suggests that that factor may be negated.

    The American Mirror reports that the former president of the United States spoke for roughly 46 minutes in which he referred to himself 89 times.

    In total, The Mirror reports that Obama got to the 89 by saying “I” 73 times, “My” 7 times, and “Me” nine times.

    OMG.

    John James!

    To close for my liking IT. Those late breaking votes from the deceased, illegal and fictitious demographics will get Stabenow over the line.

    Betting markets just shifted to Rs holding the House.

    DeSantis has been declared winner of Fl governorship by some.

  174. Baldrick

    Via TheirABC:

    Early midterms wins for Democrats

    They never learn.

  175. Stimpson J. Cat

    We’ve had one toss-up House seat called so far, it’s still too early to be calling the tide either way.

    Monty you should only be sitting on the mat watching The Wiggles today.
    I don’t want any tantrums when things don’t go your way.

    Toot Toot, Chugga Chugga, Big Red Wave!

  176. Baldrick

    Cruz back behind by nearly 200,000.

  177. calli

    Apparently da yoof vote will turn fings, according to ABC.

  178. Black Ball

    If the House remains in Republican hands, even with the loss of some seats, expect the ABC here to say it’s a strong repudiation of Trump’s agenda.

  179. Infidel Tiger

    Huge night for GOP and Cruz in big trouble.

    Took $100mn spend and the biggest media press of all time.

  180. H B Bear

    Has US political expert Ol’ Leathery had anything to say or is he sitting this one out?

  181. Stimpson J. Cat

    Apparently da yoof vote will turn fings, according to ABC.

    We shouldn’t underestimate the Mexican vote.
    It is their election after all.

    Taylor Swift’s silence on the Tennessee Senate result is deafening.

  183. Mother Lode

    He seems to know what he’s talking about.

    He will be able to give you his firm prediction in about a week.

  184. pete m

    Michigan and Illinois looking good for dem flips in state.

  185. Bad Samaritan

    OK. I know you’ve all been waiting, so here it is…

    About an hour ago the trend on Betfair reversed. The Dems had got down to $1.25 in the House, with the GOP a touch over $5 = 80% vs 20%. Since then the money has all been coming for the GOP, and now we have the Dems at about $1.75 vs GOP at around $2.60. Dems still favoured but now it’s 60% vs 40%. Interesting is that the No Majority has come down from about $150 to $60. This latter indicates that the GOP is closing in.

    I haven’t looked at the Stock Market, but since it appeared almost “certain” that the Dems would win and therefore try to wreck the US economy, plenty has flowed out in recent weeks as a precaution. This will come back in a mighty rush should the House stay in good hands. Of course, the sdmarter money switched to health-related companies and did not leave completely.

    So enough for now. I’m busy with the NBA and will keep an eye on it. Cheers.

    I just reminded “Ol Leathery (via twitter) that “we hate Donald Trump” is not a good election strategy

    LOL

  187. Stimpson J. Cat

    Monty,
    What is your gut telling you,
    apart from it’s time for another donut?

  188. Tailgunner

    Bad Samaritan!
    Thanks for the betfair update mate!

  189. PoliticoNT

    Townhall.com’s twitter feed is pretty good.

  190. John Comnenus

    Fox calling that the Dems will take control of the House

  191. Tailgunner

    Fox just called the House for the Dems?!?

  192. JC

    Monst

    Climate change! Focus on that and leave the midterms alone.

  193. mh

    CNN calling it: “No Blue Wave”

  194. pete m

    fox news is predicting strongly dems win house

    now 81% sure

    not sure why people betting on red to win

    i’d lay off on some of the dem blue odds blowing out

  195. Johno

    Fox just called the House for the Democrats

  196. Tailgunner

    But they’ve only flipped 2/23 so far?
    WTF is going on?

  197. Tel

    James Carville: “No wave.”

    That’s what his hairdresser explained to him.

  198. Stimpson J. Cat

    Rupert just put some money down.

  199. Results in so far have mostly come from Trump strongholds. The eventual Democrat House win will come with late west coast pickups.

    Things playing out mostly as I predicted, if a little on the low side for the House.

  200. Snoopy

    Fox is relying on its new algorithm not actual results.

  201. Stimpson J. Cat

    Uncle George is doing the ring around.

    Mobty, what time do they push the buttons on the machines?

    Asking for a friend.

  202. Stimpson J. Cat

    Sorry Monty got you confused with Moby.
    Easy mistake to make on a day like today.

  203. calli

    Question: do Americans know what a “bell wether” is? I didn’t know the place was full of graziers.

  204. Ƶĩppʯ (ȊꞪꞨV)

    UST IN: CBS News exit polling shows the majority of women and voters under 30 are voting for Beto O’Rourke. However, more men are voting for Ted Cruz. @adrianasdiaz#ElectionNight #Midterms2018https://cbsn.ws/2SOh5h0

    the gullibles are out in force

  205. Up The Workers!

    monty said at 12.55 that it’s still too early yet to call the election either way.

    Does anybody know whether he is talking about this election, or the previous one held in 2016 which Hateful Harpy Hillary still reckons will swing her way any moment now?

    These Lefties are fair dinkum as silly as a hat full of arseholes! ( and that’s before we even mention Richo, his hat or the sphincter he parted company with).

  206. Snoopy

    If the Dems win the House expect Trump to release a shed load of unredacted documents. Drip, drip, drip.

  207. Tailgunner

    A-ha – “models predict”.
    Fake News!

  208. Goanna

    Has US political expert Ol’ Leathery had anything to say or is he sitting this one out

    He’s having the same nightmare. Do not disturb.

  209. Snoopy

    Karl Rove predicts the Latino candidate will win the Texas Senate seat.

  210. Tailgunner

    D 1.33, TGOP out to 2.88 @Sportsbet.
    It’s over.

  211. Stimpson J. Cat

    Don’t count Lion Ted out just yet.
    He didn’t give up on his marriage when his wife was crying on the curb and he won’t give up on Texas now.

    Lion Ted The Zodiac!!!!

  212. Tailgunner

    when his wife was crying on the curb

    Lol, poor old Ted. Ant was apoplectic at that news!

  213. It appears Republicans are doing well in Florida, but losing big in Pennsylvania and dropping seats in Texas too. NYT has the national popular vote as almost ten points up for the Democrats.

  214. Snoopy

    The Latino hits the front in Texas. Cop that #FakeBeto.

  215. Ƶĩppʯ (ȊꞪꞨV)

    Taylor Swift’s silence on the Tennessee Senate result is deafening.

    can’t autotune your way out of that one

  216. I wouldn’t trust Texas results all that much at this point, as many polling places closed late after polling irregularities. Although for some reason none of the irregularities happened in wealthy white districts, funnily enough.

  217. Infidel Tiger

    Strong comeback from Dems.

    They are still right in the House race.

  218. JC

    Yea, the GOP are scaring black and Latino voters away from the booths in Texas.

    Monst, do you believe in climate change?
