I don't know how it is you do it, but you make the whole election thing so exciting. ^^ It's like watching a good soccer match, all the way up to the final score.

Nice!

that's hysterical! it's like when rush limbaugh was praising the health care he got in hawaii, not realizing it's about the closest thing to socialized medicine in the u.s. really, conservatives - do some research! (oh, wait - that's like science, right?)

also, Prop 30 passed in California, which is a huge relief to me, because if it had failed my tuition would have spiked to the tune of $2500


i'm so pleased about this - the last report i heard last night had it losing. in fact, i'm pretty pleased with most of the props - 34 (repealing the death penalty) lost, which is bad, but at least 3 strikes got amended, and 32 failed.

Slate's pundit scorecard. I'll let you each interpret the spread pattern on your own, except for this: WTF was Jim Cramer smoking?

A bunch of people on facebook said they wanted to move to Canada because Obama was a socialist...

Good luck with that.
