Dear johnslat:

Many thanks for the refutation of the reliability of Redskins as predictors of presidential election outcomes. I need all the peace of mind I can get!
Will be setting alarm for 3 am Wednesday morning: am at EST+6. I hope there will be a speedy (and positive) resolution to this election.

Best,
spiral

Anticipation

"Republican leadership in the House has apparently already conceded the White House. Before the counting is even done, before Mitt Romney's campaign is declared dead, they're threatening President Obama over taxes.

House Republicans are sending a stark message to the White House: If President Barack Obama pushes for tax increases during the lame-duck session, it would ruin his chances for a productive second term.

Republicans aren’t conceding that Obama will win Tuesday, but they’re warning that allowing tax rates on high-income Americans to increase at the end of the year—as Obama and Hill Democrats have proposed—will set a bad tone that would complicate major deal making in the 113th Congress.

“Poisoning the well right out of the gate makes no sense if the goal is a productive second term,” said one senior House GOP leadership aide.

The warning shows that Republicans are in a defensive posture already regarding the impending negotiations over taxes and spending that loom during the lame duck. And they fear Obama would use his reelection to justify an upper income tax increase."

"Obama still poised to win 303 electoral votes on Tuesday

"The math is pretty basic: Romney can only be as likely to win the country as he is to win Ohio. Romney is currently 19.9 percent likely to carry Ohio. Romney can still win this election, but Obama is heavily favored as we head into the final stretch.

But of course... A well-funded and well-thought out Kremlin plot to keep our man in the White House just couldn't fail. Get ready for more collectivisation! : )

After all the billions that have been wasted in yet another presidential campaign, where 300 million people get to choose between just two men, what happens now?

What has changed? What difference will any of this make? Even to those who voted?
