  1. Thanks for posting this, Wil… let’s not tempt the wrath of the whatever from high atop the thing.

    Anyone prematurely declaring victory has to go outside, turn around three times, spit, and curse.

  2. Well, if we are voting for politicians, I’d vote for Obama.
    If we were voting for MILFness, it’s Palin every day of the week and twice on Sunday.
    Rick Mercer, a Canadian comedian, said on his show tonight that for Americans, their leaders need to be inspriring, intelligent, and strong. Canadian leaders just need to be bilingual! lol
    But Obama is polling well in Canada, and ‘young’ Canadians (if given the choice) would vote for Obama.
    Paralells are neat.

  3. I already Voted Early in the terribly important, terribly elderly, and uhh…..just terrible state of Florida. I encourage EVERYONE to do the same.
    Let’s Change This Place!

  4. LOl @ Jimmy 5… I mentally flashed to the exact same scene!!
    Thanks Wil, let’s keep our eyes on the prize.
    Actually, I’m Canadian. So: Keep your eyes on the prize people!
    *smiles*

  5. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Giant McCain head!
    I just knew that all of McCain’s crazy rhetoric would go to his head, but you gotta be freakin’ kidding me!
    It’s like something out of a ’50′s sci-fi movie.

  6. McCain is now within four points, so it ain’t quite over yet, and still gaining.
    Meh – if the US can survive the abominations that were the Clinton, Carter and Kennedy administrations, Obama should be a breeze.
    And man, oh man, is AM talk radio going to have a field day. Never been much of a listener, but should Obamanation pull it out I’m tuning into Michael Savage on Wednesday.

  7. Well, while it’s true that the national polls have narrowed slightly, fortunately we don’t actually elect people that way. The electoral count is pretty telling. Both realclearpolitics.com and fivethirtyeight.com look pretty good for Obama.
    Of course, the polls only matter as long as people who say they’ll vote actually go out and do it, and vote the way they say they’re going to.
    Donuts & Bacon 08!

  8. Dang….Fat Fingered “I”
    I’ll just cross my fingers and hope you did the same sort of thing on your ballot , Fires. Nothing personal…

  9. I’m voting Obama in battleground Nevada. No air quotes needed for that one.
    For you Californians, please vote no on 8 so that some of the folks in my home state of Utah can sit around, wring their hands, and prepare for the apocalypse. It’ll be good for their souls.

  10. Being British and all, I can’t vote, but, if I could, it’d easily be Obama. God knows, the English have had the “same failed politics” for long enough too.
    This video is a good one too – I hope that clip wasn’t from the Tour de France!

  11. The title of your article automatically made me think of the Death Star scene in Episode IV.
    I just hope Obama isn’t as deadly for the U.S. as the Death Star was for Alderaan.

  12. I don’t care how I feel about the candidate if s/he isn’t going to keep that oath to “protect and defend the Constitution”—and since the two major parties only care about protecting the two major parties, they’re out of the running AFAIC.
    So I’m with “constitutional.liberty,” except that I’d move on to write-ins after #2 on the list.

  13. I have to say, I’m kind of surprised at the number of McCain supporters that read your blog, Wil, based on the proportion of commenters to this post. Not completely shocked, perhaps, but a bit surprised, nevertheless. I would’ve figured your demographic would be more heavily weighted to Obama. Of course, this isn’t a scientific sample, so maybe they’re over-represented.

  14. Both candiates never explain how they will pay for their new pet projects. Obama’s infomercial last night only solidified that feeling.
    I choose neither.

  15. One more thought. When either party has control of the house senate and the presidency, it means a royal screw-job for the middleclass.
    Unfettered access to our money can not be allowed.

  16. please oh please do not let it be ugly of me to have laughed so hard I almost tinkled.
    I swears it, precious, that was just hilarious.
