8:45 PM PT: Romney is not conceding Ohio, even though it's completely irrelevant at this point.

8:47 PM PT: Obama takes lead in Virginia, with a 14,000-vote lead with just 4 percent out. But Alexandria and Arlington are usually the last to report, and they sport big Democratic margins.

8:47 PM PT: AP calls Colorado for Obama.

8:51 PM PT:
This election is a total sham and a travesty. We are not a democracy!
@realDonaldTrump via Mobile Web
We can't let this happen. We should march on Washington and stop this travesty. Our nation is totally divided!
@realDonaldTrump via Mobile Web
He lost the popular vote by a lot and won the election. We should have a revolution in this country!
@realDonaldTrump via Mobile Web
Of course, the votes haven't all been counted, and certainly not California, so he's an idiot.

8:52 PM PT: Editor of American Conservative:

Karl Rove destroyed the GOP. He was never a genius. He lost the pop vote in 2000, barely won with a war pres in '04, and now this.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
