  • Jolisa,

    Oh, I'm normally ten times as superstitious. But that's how sure I feel about this.

    Kick me tomorrow if it all goes wrong. But two dozen "Yes We Did" cupcakes say it won't...

    Seriously, if this is Obama losing his shit he is the Final Cylon.

    He's a Vulcan, I reckon. Check those ears. Mind you, there's always pon farr...

  • Jolisa,

    Zip! Zip! Nay! Don't say it out loud!

    It's OK, as long as we have a hand on Giovanni's proven remedy when we say it. Apparently.

  • Craig Ranapia,

    Zip! Zip! Nay! Don't say it out loud! I've decided that this is like sports: you can jinx your team by being overly confident. Evil little spirits are hovering over us, gaining strength with every assumption about tomorrow we make!

    Well, fuck it Ms. D. I am through jumping at shadows, and empowering the worse demons of our nature with fear. Fuck Karl Rove, fuck the Limbaugh-O'Reily Axis of Stupid, Fuck the Republican Party that desperately needs to be sectioned before it steals a car and drives into a wall, and most of all fuck the evil replicant who has kidnapped the John McCain I used to respect. (I'd like him released from the Palin's basement ASAP, by the way, so he can go back to work.)

    Who knows, McCain might just win Pennsylvania as California and New England get wiped out by comets summoned by Karl Rove's invocation of Cuthulu. But I actually believe that a free, fair and orderly election is going to happen tomorrow. And whatever the outcome, the world will continue spinning forwards in it serene, indifferent way.

    (Yes, I am weird and superstitious and properly belong in a less scientifically enlightened past era. I know this.)

  • Danielle,

    there's always pon farr...

    He has to return to Hawaii and fight a rival to the death every time he wants to knock boots with Michelle? That could get costly on Air Force One.

    Well, fuck it Ms. D. I am through jumping at shadows, and empowering the worse demons of our nature with fear.

    Right on! In a logical part of my mind, I totally agree. (But if you don't mind, I'll be over here knocking on wood and throwing salt over my shoulder and making sure my umbrellas are closed inside and my shoes aren't on a table. I may also utilise the Giovanni remedy, if necessary.)

    I feel (culturally) violated.

  • Russell Brown,

    There's a man who looks like he's not scared to just have some fun with his family. Looks like the sort of person you could meet at a family bbq and not leave feeling like you're covered in political slime.

    Just back in from interviewing Professor Lawrence Lessig.

    He flies straight back to the US today, and on return will go directly to a campaign office and join his wife, working the phones for Obama.

    Amazing.

    They are feeling the pull of history at FiveThirty Eight also.

    Organizers of America,

    H-Hour, D-Day is upon you.

    That he which hath no stomach to this fight,
    Let him depart; his passport shall be made,
    And crowns for convoy put into his purse;
    We would not die in that man's company
    That fears his fellowship to die with us.
    .....etc.

  • JohnAmiria,

    You're right Danielle - can we say Camelot? (Without jinxing ourselves).

    Let's not say Camelot, shall we? Unless you want to start casting for the role of Marylin...

    Or Lee Harvey Oswald ...
