I’ll See You at the Polls, Bitches!


Am working the polls today. So, until it’s all over here…


It’a A Gamble

Nevada cracks me up! Early voters could vote in grocery stores right along side their favorite slot machine.

Kristof: “After Tuesday, Let’s Rejoin the World.”

For eight years, the United States has been in self-imposed exile…

Nicholas D. Kristof lays out a summary opinion of the Bush legacy and what lies ahead for the next elected President, and how to rebuild our cred.

He starts:

Bush’s presidency imploded not because of any personal corruption or venality, but largely because he wrenched the United States out of the international community. His cowboy diplomacy “defriended” the United States. He turned a superpower into a rogue country.

‘Course he doesn’t touch the Cheney/Rove venality, but that may be for another day…

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints have donated over $20 million to the hate-filled Yes on Prop 8 Campaign. Current polls show the battle neck-to-neck despite the heavily $ infusions by the church. This is Civil Marriage we’re talking here folks, the churches should be spending their lucre on cleaning their own homes and stay out of everyone else’s.

An update: Newlywed Author David Jefferson offers a very poignant piece at Newsweek on the personal impact of the election’s outcome.

538: Road to 270: Nevada

Election forecast via fivethirtyeight.com:

Three big races in Nevada — the presidential race, which favors Obama, and two House races. Incumbent Jon Porter is in a tossup contest with Dina Titus, who unsuccessfully ran for Governor two years ago. Turnout will be the key, and the incredible Obama operation will help a rising tide lift all boats. Jill Derby (D) and incumbent Dean Heller (R) are in a rematch from two years ago in the 2d House district, which encompasses all of the state minus most of Clark County, and Republicans worry they will lose this seat in a wave. Derby is a good candidate, and has worked the rural parts of her district for years. People know her, and it’s not hard to envision some McCain-Derby voters. Heller remains favored, but this is one of those that every last drop of GOTV has to make the Heller folks very nervous.
