I saw that Eagleburger interview yesterday and thought, "What a senile old evasive loon."

On the bright side, Maine is dark blue again:  53% to 38%.  That made me happy this morning. 

That was the prototypical grumpy old codger right there. Even better than Pat Buchanan. The expression on his face was just perfect!

Yeah, it's just a slip of the tongue, and god knows I do worse on a daily basis, but still good for a larf:

I can't believe all the uproar over Sarah Palin spending $150,000 on her wardrobe. What's she supposed to wear, a sack? Jesus!

Look, maybe this won't sit well with all those "Georgetown cocktail party" conservatives or "latte-sipping" liberals, but real Americans frequently drop AT LEAST $60,000 a year on clothing. IT'S JUST COMMON SENSE.

The headline on today's Wall Street Journal: "Obama Opens Double-Digit Lead."  That made my morning, but the election isn't over yet.

But here's the fat lady singing:

I just looked on MSNBC and they said a new poll has the candidates tied up. Who to believe?
I'll probably go into the wee hours.

I think you must have either misread something, MoS.

nope.  it was an AP article that was on the front page earlier.  I'm having trouble finding it.  Basically stating that with the margin of error from most polls it was looking 44% Obama and 43% Mccain.

Ah.  Nobody seems to be making much of a fuss about it.

I'd expect to hear that from someone living in Gainesville.
