Apart from the downticket senate races, it is a bit concerning to see the gay marriage initiatives in Maine, Maryland and Washington get so little attention. I hope at least one of them gets through......


In Maryland it has been a pretty big deal. Last polling I heard was pretty evenly split, but there have been a lot more commercials for it than against.

We have 2 serious questions on the ballot that are getting all the attention, 6--gay marriage and 7--expanded gambling. these two get all the attention

I will be doing my civic duty and vote that crud down. I find it irritating that the State Legislator is trying to end run the Gov. and trying to rule by referendum.


Thank you for your vote. Should you decide you want a same-sex spouse, we in the Homofacist Society will endeavor to secure you one.

Romney/Ryan ads while watching clips on the YouTube Glee channel. [I pretty much only watch the gay romance songs.] Maybe there's a good reason, but I couldn't help thinking what a bunch of fucking morons these guys are at everything they do.

Giuliani: Obama’s ‘Incompetence’ Has Killed Americans, He Should Resign

GIULIANI: If [Romney] can have the same success for us that he had in running the Olympics, maybe something like what happened in Libya could have been avoided!

So has Giuliani just recently fired his speechwriter or something? Because I refuse to believe this sentence was written beforehand by a human being.

Final prediction. O 295 R243.

Gave Romney NC FL and CO. Gave the rest of swings and one from NE to Obama.

I actually think CO will go for Obama. The reason is that he has a far, far superior ground game there. He's ahead in polling too, so I'd put him as the odds on favorite no matter what the polls say.

FL and VA are 50/50, and I give each of the campaigns one state each.

I've talked myself off the ledge, and am ready to make my final prediction. Here it goes:

Obama 303, Romney 235

Obama gets: WI, MI, PA, VA, CO, NH, IA and OH. Romney gets NC and FL. (Edit: Forgot NV, thats with O too)


I will go allin for Obama except for NC.

332 to 206 EV for O.
52 to 47.5 PV for O.

Sam Wang offers to eat bugs if Romney wins MN, PA, or OH.


A few days ago, the word was that Team Romney was buying ads in Minnesota and Pennsylvania. If he wins either of those states I will eat a bug. Ohio...a really big bug. And yes, I will post a photo.

Today I'll address a common concern among the commentariat: will President Obama lose the popular vote?

Obama is up to 83,7% on Silver's blog now. Basically, the shift that may or may not have come from the first debate has slowly been erased.

Just a few days remaining.


Everyone who wants Obama to win should root for Ohio State to win their home game today. Apparently that stuff matters.

Sadly, that isn't even shocking.


Heh. Check out this column.

Incredibly bad. Does this dumbass realize that the things he's saying aren't happening like he thinks? Does he have internet access?


I totally get that a lot of people dislike Obama as the President. What I still cannot quite grasp is their ability to convince themselves that an overwhelming majority of people agree with them when it is so clearly not the case.

I just got called by a pollster mainly about question 6. Most of the questions boiled down to I was defintely voting for marriage equality.

Out of all the political ads, it's the ones shown against marriage equality that make me sick the most. "They'll teach it's ok for homosexuals to marry to 2nd graders" (shows a picture like in a children's book of 2 boys kissing with a red X over their mouths) /stillsick.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':stillsick:' /> /bang.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':bang:' />

Can't wait to vote for this law.

It's on in MN, too. Last I saw, the polls were 50/50 for an amendment defining marriage as between one man and one woman. I've alerted my family that anyone voting in favor of the amendment will be disowned. I can handle other political disagreements, but not this.


As a gay man I appreciate your support, but I really don't think making statements like that is going to persuade anyone to vote for the amendment. It may just get their hackles up and make them more likely to vote for it and then lie to you about it, and how would you ever know?
