It's amazing to me that Obama at the moment can have so many more electoral votes, but be behind 1% in the popular vote.

It works both ways - while I'll be thrilled when if he wins, it will suck if he actually loses the popular vote.

It's a messed-up system, fo sho.

I'm not familiar with her campaign. Anyone care to fill me on what she was up to?

Edit: nevermind - googled it. I can't imagine how that would backfire on her.

I heard some blurbs that Dole was having to really fight to win the campaign, but hadn't heard about the dirty tricks.

Something about an ad that referred to her opponent as Godless.

Seriously, you're an hour from Port Huron? I'm 2 hrs. Drive there, get on the train at 6-ish am, it costs something like $20, and you're in Chicago by noon.
If sarah's not coming home this weekend and it needs more than pads, bring it here


so tempting, however work dictates no oppressers


speaking of them - I was very sad Mckenna's not running for the Libs
