Eleven Days and Counting

So very counting... I am ready for this election to be over. Whatever the outcome. Just Done. Do you wonder what the rest of the world is thinking about all of this? I haven't spent much time on here talking about the ridiculousness but I've been watching. What has happened to our culture?


Who do you think is going to win?

I don't know. I wouldn't be surprised if Obama wins but I wouldn't be surprised if McCain wins either.

Don't rule McCain out - it's Obama's supporters who tend to get involved in polling, so I think a lot of McCain's supporters don't crop up on the predictions. It'll be close.

New Jersey has McCain boards EVERYHWERE.

Looking back over the history of the presidential elections since I can remember, Democrats have always polled better. Even Dukakis did. Kerry had a twelve point lead two weeks out, Obama has yet to break the eight point mark unless you go by AP.

If I had to bet, I would say McCain, unless the fraud from the Obama camp is allowed to stand. I cannot understand why Barry is not in jail yet, that just dumbfounds me.

McCain. And not by no sticking little margin that will cause the Dems to whine and sue, which they may do anyway since that's the way they have a temper tantrum.

From what I read on most of the lefty blogs, and some of the righty ones, the election is already over. All that's left is the coronation. Evidently the Nov. 4 exercise has become irrelevant.

I am one of those rare people who is still legitimately undecided. However, I suspect I will continue my nearly-unblemished record of never voting for an incumbent or a winner.

I'm pretty sure, however, no matter who wins I already have the loser's excuse prepared:

1. If Obama wins, it's because the Dems cheated and the press helped drag him across the finish line in a last gasp effort to demonstrate their relevance.

2. If McCain wins, it's because the country is filled with Nazi-racist types who suppressed the votes of true patriots and crucified the Messiah with their loyal lapdogs in the mainstream press including Faux (un)News.

Pencil me in for being BL Beamer's number two person.

This election needs to be over if for no other reason than we have a serious economic crisis that needs everyone's attention and a standing President rendered impotent by attacks from all sides of the political spectrum ("Et tu, McBrute?"). Hard to believe one of his more compassionate fans right now may be Oliver Stone.

No matter who wins, the world will not end on Nov 5. It might actually become a little bit more normal again.

As to who wins, it is hard to argue that all the polls are wrong (none has shown a McCain overall lead since the RNC post-convention). And unlike 2004, a deep dive of the polls shows Obama doing much better than Kerry did in States Kerry won, and ahead in most of the battleground states. There are also more polls published than 2004 which -as a whole - probably gives us more information to analyze.

I think Obama wins 51 to 47 and the only question will be if there will be sea changes in the House or Senate as well.

Questions will also arise as to what shape the RNC will take after the circular firing squad is done with the blame game.
