Election night: Any excuse to party?

Congratulations — you voted! Or maybe you didn’t, but hopefully that unwarranted praise will guilt you into going right this second. Just don’t vote for the same dude in all three columns, like the befuddled constituents in Josh Lyman’s waking nightmare on The West Wing (press play below).

Any of you P-Dubbers have wild election night plans? I feel as terrified as Josh right now, but hopefully the election results will drive me to drink "happily" instead of "with a vengeance." Mandi Bierly and I will be at Comedy Central’s Indecision 2008 Election Night Viewing Party, scarfing down fruit kebabs while nonchalantly stalking Kristen Schaal. At least I’ll be doing that. Mandi will probably be doing something responsible.

Heads up, Nation: Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert’s hour-long election special begins at 10 p.m. ET, and
we’ll have an election-night roundup post and accompanying EW.com video (from all the networks, not just the most irreverent one) on PopWatch tomorrow morning. But tell us: How will you spend election night?

    A friend of mine and I are having a small party. We’ve got our Obama/Biden stickers and buttons, streamers, party favors and alcohol. We’ve even got McCain/Palin tissues, just in case.

    I’ll be attending a Hanson concert at Chicago’s House of Blues, just blocks away from what will hopefully be a VERY happy rally/party. I was actually a little disappointed when I realized the concert was on election night, but hopefully we’ll get someone to turn on NBC in the bar or something!

    I’m going to see “Phantom of the Opera” for the first time on stage tonight.
    I’m sitting in the sixth row BECAUSE the show was on election night and I was able to score $22 tickets. I figure I could see the show, which starts at 7:30 and still see most of the relevant election coverage. It should be a fantastic evening.

    Sitting on my couch grading midterms and praying Obama wins. Several people I know are convinced it’ll happen, so I spent most of yesterday knocking wood. I turned 18 eight days AFTER the 2000 election–And I lived in Florida. I’ve been scarred ever since.

    I’m curious about BBC America’s coverage tonight, so I’ll watch some of that along with the Daily Show and the regular networks. Mainly, I’ll be trying to get the kids to finish homework and get to bed on time, all while waiting for my guy to win.

  • Sally

    I’ll be watching Stewart/Colbert with a bottle of Jack and some Xanax nearby – in case Geezer/Dingbat win, I plan on taking a permanent nap!

    Thank you, Annie.
    That video was a great blast from the past.
    Josh’s YES exemplifies how many felt last night – exhilaration tempered with hope.
