Reminder: This does not mean we don't have to get out there and vote! All it would take is the Obama supporters in the swing states getting lazy...

Wait wait whoa? I missed something...one of the reasons this election season I havent been in church is because my pastor in the 2004 election gave a sermon in support of Bush...

Hmmmmz...

Nov 5th. That's when I'll feel good about Obama winning. Maybe even later than that, depending on partisan fuckery with any close races. Actually January 20th will probably be it. 2000 and 2004 taught me the lesson that until it's all over and counted and official, nothing is sure or guaranteed.

I'm actually pretty confident about this one. There'd have to be some pretty damned sneaky fraud, or the polls would have to be complete and utter bullshit through and through, for this one to go McCain. I'm less sanguine about the down-ticket races (not that I have much love for congressional Democrats right now, given what they've done with the victory we handed them in '06) and issues (Prop. 8, you hateful piece of trash, I didn't have any faith in humanity to break to begin with).

By any chance have you seen the segment on David Alan Greir's Chocolate News on Comedy Central? Your comment made me think of his clip with the voting machiene and when you go to vote Obama. :) I giggled a lots.

I love Nate Silver!!! I check this blgo every day. But it's only a 96.7 chance of winning if elections were held today.

Fingers crossed!

Although it would be nice if you moved to Slovenia after the election, so that I could visit you and paterson_si AT ONCE! ;)

THIS. THIS. A THOUSAND TIMES THIS. You have said it more perfectly and succinctly than I ever could.

I will not believe until Obama is being sworn into office on January 20th, and Bush and Cheney are both arrested for crimes against humanity on January 21st.

Yes, yes, yes, a billion times yes.

The only two presidential elections I've voted in were 2000 and 2004. I have no faith in the system and I'm terrified that that lack of faith will be justified yet again. :/

It's changed today, McCain is at 3.8%
