Election multi-tasking

Okay, so I'm currently watching MSNBC.com, 18 Doughty Street and Fox News (spit) online, with Sky News on the telly. And I'm surfing between Political Wire, Wonkette, PoliticalBetting.com... and, of course, the good ole' Aggregator.

What did we do before the googleinterwebulator was invented?

Sky definitely the stronger coverage so far - nine minutes in to the BBC's prog being presented from the U.S. they lost all their VT and have gone back to London for a look at "the day's other news" - come off it BBC, we've already had a day of the day's other news, get your election prog back on the air.

So far the only thing I'm missing is a map lighting up in lots of pretty colours - neither seem to be doing it...

The Republican bloke on Sky was truly awful.

I can't be bothered listening to various party spokespeople spinning. The BBC, which seem to have barely covered the election so far, are using rather rubbish videophone type technology. Sky have been doing much better (despite repeatedly captioning the Florida Dem win as a hold), but I found it more interesting watching 18 Doughty Street and getting the results myself online.

Yes - it is fascinating watching the Virginia website as the votes are counted.

Let's pretend I didn't say that about the Florida seat as it was a hold :-)
