Election Watching. . .

We've been watching the election news online tonight. Hosting Matters must not have been anticipating the high blogging levels on election day, because Instapundit, Vodka Pundit and Le Sabot have periodically been unavailable. I know it's been said before, but blogging and the internet have changed forever the way politics is done.

Thankfully, the Corner has been updating frequently. This was one of my favorite posts there, because it reminded me so much of my boys.

A READER FROM NJ [KJL]

KJL My 6 year old son is a political junkie -- his friend is the 2nd cousin of W, and he sleeps with a photo of The President and Mrs. Bush on his headboard.

When I left to vote this morning, he is well aware of the closeness of this race, he said "This election would be so much easier if we could just vote for Ronald Reagan. "

I just love him.

I remember this night four years ago. We were waiting for the projections in my graduate school class and that's all anyone could think or talk about about. Talk about being an election junkie- if we had cable down here in our room, I'd have watched all day long. There's something about elections... especially one as close as this. Keeping my fingers crossed and my eyes lifted to heaven tonight for Bush. Too bad we have Bradley class tonight :-(

Try InstaBackup over at Blogger; Reynolds is cross-posting there. Apparently not all the content though, as HM keeps going up and down, but better than no InstaPundit at all:

BTW, what you mentioned is a good reason not to use Hosting Matters. I know they're great otherwise, but a case could be made that they host All The Right People, so it's fairly predictable when they get slashdotted.

Yeah, I kept the alterna-insta link up once I found it. After the election looked pretty certain, Hubby started reading some of the Dem sites. Amusing, but frightening. There are some people pretty darn wacko out there. . .

And HM has been sooooo good to us. We're such small sites, that a weird outage like this isn't enough to get us to switch. . .
