I click this every ten seconds:

This is pure awesome web-sightedness. I had to run the simulator 47 times before I saw the first result with McCain winning.

This means, of course, that McCain is a lock.

If you earn under $150,000 per year, I thereby encourage you to begin burying your most prized possessions in a friend's back yard (your own back yard is the first place they will look.)

Congratulations, Tom, mid-level cardboard administrators such as yourself are about to get a whole lot richer. And that money will have some actual value through most of the winter! Spend it fast.

Uh-oh. I'm beginning to think DFK might be right. I got McCain winning the second time I tried it, and 2 out of 4 times. I'm sticking with fivethirtyeight.com.

I'm so glad no one posted this yet - possibly my favorite fictional map of all time.  There's so much awesome stuff going on here.  Jack Kirby's mind never stopped ruling for a second.

There are an AMAZING amount of potential band names on that map. I choose "Jaguar Sun Cult".
