Doce me faces voluntarem tuam quia Deus meus es tu

One final post before the voting begins. I'll be updating tomorrow night during the election returns. Expect updates randomly, but on target. Make sense? No, I didn't think so.

I've been asked for a prediction. I'm not good with this sort of thing, but here's my best guess. GWB is re-elected with electoral votes numbering between 290-310. Bold? Maybe, but that's my take. (post corrected - my prediction had previously read 209-310. -M.)

Finally, read this Guardian article about Tom Wolfe. Money quote:

"I think support for Bush is about not wanting to be led by East-coast pretensions. It is about not wanting to be led by people who are forever trying to force their twisted sense of morality onto us, which is a non-morality. That is constantly done, and there is real resentment. Support for Bush is about resentment in the so-called 'red states' - a confusing term to Guardian readers, I agree - which here means, literally, middle America. I come from one of those states myself, Virginia. It's the same resentment, indeed, as that against your own newspaper when it sent emails targeting individuals in an American county."

That's all for now, folks. See you in twenty-four.
