  Midterm Midtacular Dan Rather will not break his 44 year stint of reporting on elections tonight. He will be with Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert on the Midterm Midtacular.
Looking for critically-acclaimed and award-winning political coverage? This election night, the place to be is COMEDY CENTRAL. Unburdened by objectivity or even accuracy, "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" will combine forces with Stephen Colbert and "The Colbert Report" for a special COMEDY CENTRAL joint presentation with a one-hour, live election night special featuring up-to-the-minute results of the day's races from across the country. "'Indecision 2006': The Midterm Midtacular" premieres Tuesday, November 7 at 11:00 p.m. ET (tape delayed on West Coast).

CNN, for example, will gather 20 of the most viewed and opinionated bloggers, including representatives from The Huffington Post (which typically tilts left) and Red State (more right) at a Washington Internet cafe known as Tryst. There, they will sit under enormous video screens — showing CNN, of course — while pounding out their reactions to the results for
I might, if I'm feeling up to it head down to the local Weakley County Democrats gathering for a few minutes, but you can bet your butt I'll be watching the Midterm Midtacular. Yes Indeedy. Although as a rule of thumb, Rather has always given me the wiggums, I do believe he is either brave or incredibly stupid to go on with Colbert and Stewart. I'll keep my mind open and see how it goes. 
Last night's highlights:

1) Every single minute of the Midterm Midtacular.

2) CNN cutting away to the "E-lection Blog Party" to show footage of a bunch of heavyset, pasty, white people sitting around staring into their computer screens.
