That is probably what it should be...

I get the impression that it will be much different.
probably closer to the outcome of the last election(s).

All I can say is I hope you are right.

I have a friendly wager with a couple of friends. I took Obama, even though I'm not voting for him.

Now wouldn't that be some poetic justice. Or is it ironic. Either way it would make me smile. I still wouldn't want him to be tortured, or have his civil rights violated.

LOL isn't that a disease?

This article is 5 pages but truly worth the read.

ROCK, PAPER, SCISSORS

Quote:
Americans used to vote with their voices—viva voce—or with their hands or with their feet. Yea or nay. Raise your hand. All in favor of Jones, stand on this side of the town common; if you support Smith, line up over there. In the colonies, as in the mother country, casting a vote rarely required paper and pen. The word “ballot” comes from the Italian ballotta, or little ball, and a ballot often was a ball, or at least something ballish, like a pea or a pebble, or, not uncommonly, a bullet. Colonial Pennsylvanians commonly voted by tossing beans into a hat. Paper voting wasn’t meant to conceal anyone’s vote; it was just easier than counting beans. Our forebears considered casting a “secret ballot” cowardly, underhanded, and despicable; as one South Carolinian put it, voting secretly would “destroy that noble generous openness that is characteristick of an Englishman.”

tbh, I'd love it if Obama would send Bush, Cheeny and Rove (as well as a few others) to Gitmo for a nice vacation of waterboarding and sleep deprivation.

That'd be real nice of him don't you think?

I don't think it's my imagination when I say that the electoral college system has to favour the Republicans, who do well in places like Montana and Idaho. Unless they changed the system recently. Combine the disproportional electoral college with the black/Moslem name doubt; when push comes to shove in the voting booth, I think even a big lead in the polls for Obama means little.

The real question is how many seats will the bureacraps pick up in the House and Senate. As they already are responsible for the shape our country is in, I wonder if the electorate even noticed.
