"My friends, Joe the Plumber, Obama is a socialist. Thank you."

Summarizing the McCain stump speech I just watched. Amazing. John McCain. The John McCain. He sounds sillier than Mike Huckabee. It's depressing. John McCain, for God's sake.

Joe the Plumber. Jesus H. Christ.

    Nate Silver at fivethirtyeight.com has and interesting election night hour-by-hour election guide posted at Newsweek. He confirms my belief that Virginia may be the most important state. My feeling was we would be able to call the race early if Virginia goes Obama. He notes that a quick call before 8 PM would indicate the map has changed in favor of Democrats. Maybe i won't have to stay up ALL night.

    LOL. Well said, Michael. Sad indeed. His frantic Bailout Week performance/campaign suspension sealed it for me. Pretty amazing theater.
