  1. semiquaver

    despite the shitty economy, at least we wake up to good news on this front every day.  

    I can’t wait for friday.

  2. To most of this damned state, “change” is anathema.  I don’t want this to be a squeaker.  5% is still too close for comfort, but better than the Rasmussen a few days ago.

  3. the margin of error is quite large in each of these polls. At least, the lead is outside the MOE in all but the Michigan poll. I’m a little worried about Michigan. I guess I need to work harder.
