11/5 Markos Moulitsas With The Election Day “Math” & Occupy Sandy To The Rescue

November 5, 2012

Daily Kos founder Markos Moulitsas gave us his election day math, predicted a comfortable Obama victory, Democrats holding the Senate and gaining some seats in the House. Sam asked if Paul Ryan’s extremism was exploited enough?

Jeff Smith explained how Occupy responded to Sandy, wealth inequality and hurricane relief, Bloomberg’s shockingly tasteless push to keep the New York Marathon going in the face of continued power outages and all the ways that Occupy is coordinating help.

CNN’s Eric Erikson says election results don’t matter because the rapture is coming, Fox and Friends have uncovered a new dastardly plot! And Mitt will lose because of the Hurricane according to Republican excuse makers.

And keep the conversation going on the morning thread!
