it's totally obvious who that little kid is voting for.
Because little kids can vote.

My question is when did the lead singer of Everclear become governor of Florida?

Coldcut sums up the election:

Somewhat heavy-handed, but I'm a sucker for their video collages.

theres a new sign o the crosstown here in okc.  a billboard with a pic of mccain saluting and the text "patriotism matters: google obama salute for more info".  it appears to be purchased by a pac or something.

I'm literally losing sleep over this election. I've never been so on edge.

I remarked at a meeting yesterday that I felt like everything in the world is in stasis until the election is over. But that's just silly. It's just due to the fact that we've been way too fixated on it for weeks now, really months. Plenty of things in the world are still going on:

1. Shitty weather
2. Psychotic financial markets
3. The U.S. (possibly world) recession
4. A new Nickelback release coming soon
5. Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan
6. Widespread job losses
7. Global warming

My advice to everyone I meet is to keep things in perspective. Don't be so negative! Things could be a lot worse. For example, inflation could be high.

But my dad was all "did you see how close the poll was on drudge" (he's a mccain man) and I was all "yes but the electoral college"

I think things are going to be just fine:

Anyway I'm looking forward to it all being signed and sealed, but I think Obama has this baby:

3. The U.S. (possibly world) recession


I'm not disagreeing with you or even starting a dialogue with you, but this point reminded me of something I wanted to write.  I think the myth that politics and the economy are so related really has to be dispelled at this point.

For example, many of europe's stock markets beat the US markets over the past ten years.  So right-wingers who think the left leaners are going to destroy things don't really have much basis for their argument, since europe is more left that we were.  But likewise, I had so many clients in the Bay Area where I am who thought the US was going to hell and that international markets were going to be a place of refuge and that is proving to be colossally untrue - that's assuming down markets are a leading indicator of a recession. 

Anyway.
