Au Contraire! The campaign is doing way way great, it has been having all kinds of sex!

Okay, sure, fine, <i>with dogs</i>. But look, all the bed-shitting is making David Vitter all kinds of jealous.

I somehow doubt that.

prommie: Miffed (r)Money has to run the table like Fast Eddie Felson.

Real Clear Politics (which I prefer to Nate Silver and TMC because it doesn't give Mr. Obama the same size lead, and I don't want to be over-confident right through here) has Mr. Obama at 247 and (r)Money at 191.

Florida as 29 electoral votes; Ohio (18); Virginia (13); Colorado (9); Iowa and Nevada (6) and New Hampshire (4).

Mr. Obama needs 23 from the swing states. (r)Money will probably get North Carolina (15), so that brings him to 206 before the 7 swing states decide the race. Where does he get 64 electoral votes?

We have a long way to go - but I like our position right now.

2.0:

I found these numbers over at Nate Silver's 538 Blog. If they don't keep (r)Money awake at night - or tearing off his clothes and running naked through the snow - it's a stronger man than I think he is.

Mr. Silver gives Mr. Obama a 77.6% chance of winning the election.

Yet, "The odds that Obama loses at least one state he carried in 2008: 92.8%. The odds Obama wins at least one state he failed to carry in 2008: 18.5%."

Wow.

If it's good enough for Sheer InSannity, Glumm Bleek and the FoxPAC...

If you're not going to let Mitt borrow a shitload of money, pocket half if it, fire the doctors, screw the suppliers, and welsh on the pensions, how the hell do you people <i>expect</i> him to improve hospital service?

That's called an endless loop. The usual cure is a re-boot.

In the same sense, we provide mortuary care for the poors also, i.e., we scrape them up off the sidewalk when they die and take them to the landfill. For free.

Where I work, when someone shows up with a bone sticking out, we drop everything and do our damnedest to put it back where it belongs. We can't imagine not doing this. We don't really give a fuck about the money. And, we don't really give a fuck about anybody who does. There, I said it.

I bet $10,000 they boo Mitt during his concession speech, the moment he suggests that they accept the choice of the majority.

And an onion on your belt. See, there's a practical reason for it.

speaking of communists to the north: there is a story my mom (canadian) likes to tell about a canadian PM (diefenbaker?) picking up eisenhower at the airport in his wife's battered station wagon. eisenhower suggested canada perhaps should provide him with a car. for dignity.

i have no idea if it's apocryphal or not, but i find it charming.

But you don't have to pay for them somehow. Maybe Romney picks up the bill personally.

He could combine it with a explanation about how he was joking about the airplane windows? A twofer.
