Election predictions

Obama by 3.5 percent nationally (the polls overstate the Democrats, but not by enough to matter), the Dems pick up 20 or so house seats and make it to 58 senators, Allen Buckley pushes the Georgia Senate race into a runoff, which Chambliss will pull off by a narrow margin in three weeks. Bob Barr does better than any recent LP candidate with over 1% of the vote, coming in at 3% in Georgia. Obama will be a good winner, and McCain will be gracious in defeat, and out long, lurid parade of tired whores will finally be over.

Now everyone read this article on why voting in unimportant.

Quote of the moment – election edition

From this diavlog (by Brink Lindsey) –

We’ve reached a point where a top income tax rate of 35% is Social Darwinism, and a top income tax rate of 39% is socialism.

Thoughts on the primaries and the Democrats

I was thinking about the New Hampshire primary while running an errand today, and it occurred to me that the party of diversity had one candidate that was fighting for change, one that was working for change, and another that was being the change.

Just as I thought that a homeless man came up and offered to work for change. I guess he’s a Clinton fan. And the primaries aren’t for another month!

  1. McCain
  2. Huckabee

Sorry for the light blogging

Work has been quite hectic lately.

By means of contrition, check out The Bar Fight Primary.
