Current electoral vote projections: Obama 375, McCain 163
I think it is funny that Arizona is only "leaning" Republican. (According to NPR's electoral map which is behind on the polls)

Really, this is just an excuse to use my newly stolen icon.
Also, Victoria Jackson thinks Obama is the antichrist. God, this is so ridiculous.

Current Mood: hopeful hopeful

I had no idea she was so religious. I'd not have suspected it from her stand-up. Maybe she was reborn or sumfin'.

Or it's all a clever, longitudinal comedy act.

I think out best-case scenario is 359-179, unless Bob Barr siphons off enough votes to give us a win in GA, in which case it's 374-164. There's a tiny chance we could end up with MT, SD, WV, or AZ, but very very doubtful.

Worst-case scenario is still not too shabby - even if we lose every state in which we're currently up by 5 points or less, we still win 282-256.

Almost more scary than the Christian stuff are the conspiracy theories. I was reading some right-wing blogs this morning and they are in a huge kerfuffle about Obama's time at Columbia. They're saying the mainstream media aren't investigating the fact that he was *gasp* in New York when a splinter group of the Weather Underground did it's last bombing. They are quite convinced that Obama was part of that group, committed many crimes with them and the FBI is withholding Obama's file.

Uh, the Bush Administration outed an undercover CIA agent for political gain - I think they'd be perfectly willing to sneak out an FBI file. And seriously, if there was dirt on Obama, the Clintons would have found that shit.

I was watching to CNN this morning at the gym. They were showing the percentage of positive, negative and neutral news coverage intending to show a negative bias towards John McCain. McCain has seen something like 67% negative news coverage versus 30-ish percent for Obama. They were complaining of a liberal bias etc.

Has no one considered that Obama is either better at spinning news when his campaign responds to news coverage or that, maybe, he's a good person with a consistent record? No no, can't think that. That would imply John McCain isn't either of those things.

My favorite conspiracy theory is that Obama (terrorist) isn't actually American because he was born in Hawaii before it was a state. This despite his birth certificate (obviously forged) stating he was born in 61 (lies), two years after Hawaii was inducted.

Oy.

As much as I am for Obama - I think he is much better at spinning the news :)

Well you know all those secret terrorist's come from states like Hawaii and Alaska because they were the last to become real additions to the patriotic union!

Has Victoria Jackson been relevant at any point since the early 90s?

Nope. Just pointing out the crazy. I'm surprised given her stand-up.

Victoria Jackson has been a Born-again for quite awhile, I think I remember hearing about it around the time she was booted of off SNL. She still does some weird racy stuff though, like that Strip Mall show they used to run on comedy central. Also she is a fucking nitwit and I am 90% sure she didn't write that stuff, it was written for her.

<3 the icon!!
amalathea From: amalathea Date: October 29th, 2008 10:29 pm (UTC) (Link)
I now need an icon that says NorthKoreastahn.

That is the single most greatest thing ever. I honestly could play with that all damned day. All day I tell you!

What kind of craziness are you talking about?! A good person running for prez who actually does good spin?! Puh-lease! We haven't had that for quite a few decades, my friend. The media is so shocked by the fact that it might actually be true that they think there HAS to be media conspiracy somewhere.
:o)

P.S.
LOVED the palin website. Threw it up on Twitter. It made me giggle unlady-like.
