Liveblogging the Election

Only a few of you died from alcohol poisoning during our liveblog of the final presidential debate, so that means we'll be doing it again on election night itself (Tuesday, November 4th, for those of you too lazy to go to the polls). Like last time, we'll have a sparkling panel of resident and non-resident experts on hand to distribute off-color (and a few on-color) jokes at the expense of the candidates, the anchors, the pundits, and the blowhards that make our democracy great/scary. Our group will be checking in at the top of every hour until all the votes are counted. And you can be a part of the action as well, since the fine folks at Meebo will be supplying an open chat room for your vandalization pleasure. Even when the panel of experts are off crying into our Ben & Jerry's and/or numbing the pain with hooch, you'll be able to interact with fellow political nerds who've chosen, like you, to abandon friends and family in favor of visiting AmateurScientist.org.


There will also be an exciting giveaway of a spectacular prize to the one talented chat room attendee who can describe the most creative use for it. What is it? You'll just have to be here to find out. But I'll give you a hint: it's a relic of the past eight years of American infamahistory, and you can wipe yourself with it. See you then!
