Election 2

Chicago polls stay open until 7. It is still 6:30, so nothing is happening here.

The pasties are out of the oven!

This is Jack. Obama's up in Florida with a quarter of the vote in; this bodes well. Virginia is relatively unbeknownst at the moment. I haven't seen anything in from Ohio. By my count, Obama has Vermont, Romney has Kentucky, Indiana, West Virginia, and South Carolina, none of which is surprising. Also: PASTIES!

Thank you Jack. Now let's retire from the election for a quickie as I give out a brief segment I like to call....EDUTAINMENT!!!

Today's subject, Steven Spielberg's Amblimation. It was the animation production arm of Amblin Entertainment. It began its run with the sequel to Don Bluth's "An American Tail" called "Fievel goes West". On its release on Thanksgiving 1991, it met with mixed reviews like the first film but did do well at the box office. Spielberg decided to use the money to produce his next film "We're Back! A Dinosaur's Story" which was based off a children's book of the same name. It had famous actors in the film like John Goodman, who later on did the voice of Sulley in Pixar's "Monsters Inc", Kenneth Mars, who previously did the voice of King Triton in Disney's "The Little Mermaid" and oddly enough.....Yeardley Smith. That's right, the same girl who voiced Lisa Simpson contributed her voice to this movie.  On its release in November 1993, a year after Fievel goes West was released, it got mixed to negative reviews. The last film by Amblimation was Balto. Based on a true story of the sled dog of the same name. It tells the story of Balto (voiced by Kevin Bacon. Mmmm. Bacon) who tries to win the heart of Jenna, a young Siberian Husky, voice of Bridget Fonda. But he is constantly interrupted by Steele, a Alaskan Malamute voiced by Jim Cummings. Now the rest of the story is based off the real event. It was Amblimation's final film when it received 50% mixed reviews. But hey, at least it got two direct to video sequels. Now that Edutainment is done, let's get back to our main subject: the election.

It's 7pm central time! Polls in the midwest are closing!

Romney is talking on a plane.

My mom still thinks that Anderson Cooper is cute. So does my grandma.

How do these reporters keep thinking up things to say? It's a lot of blah blah blah.
