    Horseshoes and hand-grenades only, Mitt. Sorry. In presidential politics a miss is as good as a mile. We now return to our regularly scheduled platitudes.

    And recounts and Supreme Court decisions.

    Getting the most votes (whether popular or electoral) is only part of it – the next is to make sure each vote is counted – and that the Supreme Court doesn’t overrule those votes.

    Hey, it worked for shrub in 2000, so why not once again??

    Ahh, a young Jedi to join me on my quest to the SCOTUS… I’d say we scrag them all and have a coin-toss. Can’t be worse than what they did by installing GWB

    I have to commend Gov. Romney on being so close so late in the game, with all the lying, flip-flopping, etch-a-sketching, not-answering, VP-hiding, tax-return-hiding and rapist-pandering he did…

    Of course it did. Every good Tea-Bagger knows no durty, Muslim Marxist, whut ain’t no real City-zen could ever beat a Good Amercian Chrisshun Patriot in no Fair election.

    “Yes, NBC is calling this a 48% 48% tie”
    Tigger, what happened to the other 4%? Voting is different from takking a poll.

    Nate Silver has Obama with a 2.6% lead in the vote. Statistically giving Obama 91.6% chance of winning the election. It’s only a little over 2%, but it equates to electoral college vote of 314.6- 223.4. It’s all over but the cheating so watch carefully at the polls today, especially if you’re in a swing state. I plan to wake up with Barack Obama as President tomorrow. A bad day for desperate trolls Tigger and Ima, etc.

    NBC probably has already called Obama the winner.

    As far as I’m concerned, it ain’t over until one of them concedes.

    Popular vote only gets you one that most of the country doesn’t want. Popular vote with instant runoff (vote first, second, etc. choice, the least is dropped and alternates added, until a majority is reached) at least gets you someone the majority can at least stand. As it is now, “It won’t mean a thing if your state cannot swing”, and even there it is non-binding. Jill Stein and the Green Party support IRV, so, since your vote for president is meaningless, vote Green and build a real democracy – the rule of all the people. And be sure and vote for the rest of the offices where your vote really counts.

    Don’t count the ribbons until after you’re past the line.
