Vanity: What Sites to Monitor?
Nov 2, 2010 | Self

Posted on 11/02/2010 6:52:57 AM PDT by Oscar in Batangas

A little advice, please, guys.

I'm in the jungle in a third world country. I have fair to medium speed internet service (streaming video goes to buffer mode about 20% of the time) and no satellite TV.

So what site(s), besides FR, do you recommend I use to monitor the rout???

I figure +80 and +9 is a fair rout.

It'll already be Wednesday morning here when the polls close, so if you want to know ahead of time how things worked out, let me know.

Thanks.

OiB

The State elections web site of whichever state you are interested in is one I usually don’t miss. You can watch the results in real time in most cases, right down the the precinct level.

Politico and CNN both stay on top of things, and have nice county level maps that show where the votes have been counted. You can ignore their biased reporting and projections.

Drudge and Fox News are usually pretty good.

I’ll be watching FNC with the sound off, listening to the local Rush Radio Station, WRDU-FM, 106.1. Available streaming on the web.

You’ll want to peek in at a few liberal sites for laughs.

Don’t know who to recommend though.

Listening to Mark Levin last night he seemed to say that he’d have all races constantly updated on his website.

I’m sure if he’s on a black ops mission, he won’t mind telling FR where he’s at...

You can tell us who won, before the polls close? I’m in VA, let me know how the Nye - Rigell race went.

Batangas is in the Philippines.

You can’t get Fox News in the P.I.?

If you have a SW set, tune into Voice of Russia, they surprisingly good (accurate) news - for everywhere outside of Russia.

Can’t say which jungle.
Sometimes “yes” to all of the rest.
