Bittersweet is about the only word that comes close to the feeling of today. This is the last post for Viva Chuck Todd.
I say it all in the below video, but it needs to be put in "print" just how thankful I am to all of you who made this site a joy to do everyday for the past six months. It has been a fantastic experience just in "meeting" those of you who frequented this site and made your presence known. I know personally that Chuck is forever grateful to all of you for your words of support and encouragement through this historic election season.
For the record, over 120,000 people visited Viva Chuck Todd, Chuckolyte.com and Chucktodd08.com combined in the last six months, tens of thousands of Viva Chuck Todd and Viva Rachel Maddow e-cards have been sent, there are over 350 (and counting) Chuckolyte card-holders and approximately $600 has been raised for the Tim Russert charities.
As the dust settles in our electoral process, this seemed like the logical time to sign-off and go back to what I get paid to do. With that said, there might be some posts in the future as events dictate; so be sure to sign up for updates via email using the Feedburner box to the left- but for the most part, I'm done.
This site and all related Chuck Todd sites (Chuckolyte.com and Chuck08.com) will remain live as will our spin-off site, Viva Rachel Maddow.
Before I go, special thanks need to go out to Chuck's G, Kim, Kristian, Willie Geist, Joe Scarborough, Jonathan Capehart, each and every proud Chuckolyte card holder, Ol' Man Barnacle, of course The Chuck and most importantly, Tim Russert for hiring that numbers guy from The Hotline.
Thank you all again for one hell of a fun experience.
Vaya con dios Viva Chuck Todd,
