some stuff

1. Looks like the face-carving bitch story died an early death (though TPM, in its typically dogged fashion, is trying to Schiavo-ize it). I'm surprised. What doesn't surprise me is that Fox News VP John Moody has still not followed up on this statement on his blog: "If the incident turns out to be a hoax, Senator McCain’s quest for the presidency is over, forever linked to race-baiting."

2. Check out this site for the most complete aggregation of election polling, along with tons of great graphs and charts and projections and related analysis. If there is anything poll related or concerning nuts-and-bolts of elections that is not included here, I don't think it truly, objectively exists.

3. Speaking of which... do you think Republicans ever stop to wonder what it means that the two richest, most important, and most powerful states in the union are so far in the Democrat's column that neither presidential campaign even bothers to visit or spend any significant advertising dollars there at all? Do they ever give any intellectual analysis to this idea other than "well, that's where all the minorities, fags, and commies live, so obviously they're gonna vote for the Democrat"?

4. Top-level McCain adviser -- speaking on a not-for-attribution basis, natch -- calls Palin a "whack job". True, but doesn't this fall into the category of information that would have been far more valuable to have PRIOR TO nominating her to be Vice President of the United States of America?

5. Best Halloween costume ever? (probably NSFW).

6. Here's a fascinating "Screw you guys, I'm going home" letter from an investment banker to his clients (pdf). Hate to give away the ending, but the last paragraph is priceless. To paraphrase: "While I've got your attention: LEGALIZE IT!"

7. ABC is counterprogramming tonight's Obama infomercial with a show called "Pushing Daisies", which apparently is not a documentary about McCain's candidacy.

To follow up on #3 - it appears that all the red states are in "fly-over" country.

calling it "fly-over country" is exactly the kind of limp-wristed fag intellectual commie coastal elitist talk that's gonna get us taken over by the Aye-rab Tursts. son, don't you understand that's where all the Real Murricans live?

There are only white people in Kansas, cept the people playin sportzzz.

Lahde is greatness. I just have to point out that whilst reading that I think of Jerry Maguire's "mission statement" for some reason. Not quite the same thing.

Just want to point out something, sir. I know I'm biased, but this blog is getting better by the post. I hope you keep rolling out the hits after Tuesday.

thanks for the good word kingfish. and yeah, I'll not stop posting on Tuesday. more likely I'll just change my focus to... wait for it... criticizing the Obama administration. But you knew that was coming, right?
