(Newser) – Meghan McCain expects a dark day for Democrats, with “more than a few upsets and memorable YouTube moments.” Her predictions in the Daily Beast:

  • Sharron Angle will beat Harry Reid in Nevada, and he’ll offer an “uncomfortable and possibly bitter concession speech.”
  • Charlie Crist will knock out Marco Rubio in Florida, in a setback for Tea Partiers—but as an independent, he’ll be lonely in Washington.

  • Gawker’s Christine O’Donnell one-night-stand story will prompt voters to “actually elect this woman.”
  • In Alaska, Lisa Murkowski will win, and Sarah Palin, who backed Murkowski’s opponent, will “blame all media.”
  • “I predict a win for the former CEO of eBay,” Meg Whitman, in California. “I see Meg Whitman as one of the next great Republican leaders."
