Election Live Blog: 8 PM PT Hour

Obama McCain Proj. 189 147 Auto 55 62 Conf. 21 48 8:06: Politico has Obama at 324 electoral votes after locking up WA, OR, and CA! They’re also calling FL and NM for Obama. People near the place I’m working at are hooting and hollering, probably over the new threshhold. 350 or even 400 is not […]

Election Live Blog: 7 PM PT Hour

Projected EVs: Obama 165, McCain 118 McCain leads auto-projected and confirmed states 8-0. 7:02: New York to Obama. That is the largest prize I’ve awarded so far tonight.

Ideally I would have some sort of PHP and MySQL system set up for inputting and tracking results, but because of Freehostia’s […]

Nothing else matters. This is the ONE THING you should vote on.

What is the most important issue in this election? Is it the war in Iraq? Health care for all? Illegal immigration? Surely it’s the economy, right? Wrong. The most important issue in this election, the one that cannot be ignored under any circumstances, is global warming and climate change. I don’t care whether you believe […]

Moving on…

Sports Watcher later today. I hope everyone reading Da Blog or even Sandsday watches the debate tonight. Don’t worry, McCain will show up. Apparently some of the people in the room trying to hash out that bailout effectively told him, “You know, why don’t you just go off to that debate and we’ll work things […]

I knew these scamming idiots were idiots.

Saw this on the side of my Yahoo inbox. Um… guys… I think you have the wrong guy for president on one of those… I know there are some people who might wish this was the race for president, but… (Apologies if this runs too far down the page.)
