Let me be the first to say

I have a new senator; her name is Jeanne.
I am watching election returns at the only Kappa Kappa Kappa frat, commonly called Trikap (founded in the 1850s, mind you), in the country with the rest of the Dartmouth College Democrats, ie, the first youth voters to ever turn out in full force. This college's eligible turnout was around 80%, and we couldn't be happier. Forgive me for making a non-weekend front-page post, but as someone who has lived just 15 minutes from the former Aryan Nations compound in North Idaho, I would like to note that there is a certain delicious and beautiful irony in the fact that we are celebrating the election of the nation's first black president in a Greek house called KKK - a frat that has its own African-American president.
With Ohio, Pennsylvania, and New Hampshire all called, I'd like to be one of the first, if not the first, to say:
YES WE DID! YES WE DID! YES WE DID! YES WE DID! YES WE DID!
