I Had Been Repeating That The Internet Changed Everything

by Smitty That notion was handed to me.¬†Apparently, it has to get worse before it gets better. At least we won’t hear about how we should get rid of the electoral college for another four years. A broader point that needs to sink home is that, given a choice between Party A and Party Mostly […]

ELECTION NIGHT RESULTS HQ; UPDATE: OBAMA WINS RE-ELECTION; AMERICA HOPELESSLY DOOMED

GAHANNA, Ohio UPDATE 10:35 p.m. ET: It’s over, folks: Obama wins Wisconsin, which invalidates any remaining alternative path to 27o for Mitt Romney. Florida looks very much like a loss for Romney, who will hang on to North Carolina and, maybe, Virginia, but that’s not enough if Florida is gone. The last time I looked […]

ELECTION DAY UPDATES

GAHANNA, Ohio Years of Election Day coverage have provided me with a traditional routine: Sleep late or get a nap and ignore as much of the inevitable panic as I can.

Wild-Ass Scenarios? Chill.

WILMINGTON, Ohio Prudence Paine had asked me to submit an Electoral College prediction map and, while Smitty played the game, I chose to abstain. It’s just not what I do. I once won an office pool by correctly guessing the length of a Bill Clinton State of the Union speech, but I suck at election […]

Volunteers make calls at Americans for Prosperity phone bank in Ohio BLUE ASH, Ohio We’re at the center of the storm — ground zero of the entire presidential campaign — and you’d think this might provide some special insight into the ultimate outcome of the election. Not so. Ali’s spent the morning pondering the Electoral […]

@PruPaine #JustABlogger Electoral Vote Entry: Don’t Settle For Egg On Obama’s Face; Give It The Full Omelette

by Smitty Commies in Seattle, Frisco, Chicago, and New York are going to have a pounding hangover to match the pounding #OccupyResoluteDesk takes tomorrow: Click the map to join the fray. As a backup position, I predict that BHO doesn’t crest 200 in the electrical collage, even with states 51-57: #ObamaGoogleHistory If I lose 50 […]
