(CNN)   Somewhere at CNN there is a "news" producer who thought "hmm, what ridiculous, absolutely unnecessary gimmick can we use to deliver tonight's election results? *snap* Got it, let's turn the Empire State Building into an electoral vote thermometer"   (cnnpressroom.blogs.cnn.com ) divider line

That's kind of neat.

Beats that "hologram" of Blitzer from last time.

Empire State Building? I've already pointed out the establishing shot for most TV shows and movies purportedly set in NYC is the Chrysler Building.

Yeah I actually kind of like that.

I'm glad someone told me it was the Empire State building. From the banner I would have guessed it was something that Darth Vader would fly around.

Baker, CA inconsolable.

It's a big rainbow colored dick. Totally a gay agenda supporting stunt.

Why do you think he's called the Mad Greek?

NBC is doing the same damn dumb thing at the Rockefeller center.

CNN always gets carried away with the bells an whistles, it gets really tacky. Worse than a kid doing his first web page.

Will the office lights spell out RAPE if Romney wins?

You think the office lights will spell out RAPE if Romney wins.

I think the office lights will spell out RAPE if Romey Wins.

It's going to be a rectal thermometer if Romney wins.

911 CNN is a joke.

King Kong will win 535 electoral votes. Obama will carry D.C.

This makes perfect sense if the election was for President of New York.

What color is Gary Johnson?

i upped my meds-up yours: This makes perfect sense if the election was for President of New York.


Manhattan County already has a President. And while there is some sentiment for NYC becoming it's own state and ditching those upstate freeloaders, there's no talk of secession.

At least they put their email and phone number so you can let them know how you feel about it

Meh, this is kind of cool. NBC was doing something like this also.
