According to my stats, people don’t read blogs anymore.
Shouldn’t we be drinking tonight? Say, every time one of the news guys says that a state has gone to the other guy take a drink. Every time the news guys point out that they are making judgments on very low percentages of returns, take a drink. Every time a state flips, take a drink. Every time CNN puts up that "holograph," take a drink. (Actually its pretty cool in the way that Star Wars knocked our socks off in 1977 but makes us cry today). Every time Wolf Blitzer makes it evident that he wants McCain to win, take a drink.
After you vote, run over to Starbucks for a free cup of coffee. Take your coffee over to Krispy Kreme for a free doughnut.
Grab some Chick-fil-a for an early dinner. Then have a free ice cream at Ben & Jerry’s for desert (5-8pm). Then for 2nd deserts head over to Baskin Robbins from 5pm-8pm for another free scoop. (I am trying to get links for confirmations but my machine isn’t cooperating. I can personally confirm that Starbucks is giving away free coffee.)
Update: You can also get a free sex toy if you live in New York City or Seattle. And just in case you aren’t reading what you are clicking, that link isn’t safe for work.
Starbucks wants you to vote.
In case you missed it, here’s Obama’s infomercial that played on 3 networks last week:
Michael Silence puts McCain on top.
Newscoma said it all. fin.
Obama roasts McCain at the Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner:
Obama’s closing remarks:
Not really but John McCain just scored some points in my book. Well handled John! Watching this video was like watching a character actor step out of character. I’m still voting for Obama but McCain showed some class.
"[Senator Obama] is a decent person and a person that you do not have to be scared about as President of the United States," he said, before adding: "If I didn’t think I would be one heck of a better president I wouldn’t be running."

I allowed myself to be distracted by the Presidential debate at Belmont in Nashville last night. I Twittered my thoughts as Obama, McCain, and Brokaw played their game. Naturally, apologies were issued for the flood. Read from bottom up.

Rumor has it that outside a this valley thar be other states beyond just Tennersee. Nows I can vouch for that cus I done traveled a bit in my life and seen me those other states. That is til I ran into da Mississip out there to the West. Head South an’ it gets hot inside an out! The weather and food is spicy! And thar’s that Gulf of Mexco. Lota water an nothing else. Head East an tis the same thang. Ocean of water and far da eye cn see. Taint nothing else.
Now, it been told that beyond all da water thar’s other lands. Some says we came from there. Some says all the land was squished t’gether an it drifted apart like Billy’s raft done in the river current las sumner. Ifn ya ask me, I gots to say what’s it matter. Sholy a Twitter message caint reach dem other lands. It’d fly straight off da Earth befo’ ev’r reachin them lands.
At about 9:55pm I called Tom Brokaw the winner of the Presidential debate in Nashville.

Update: My other debate Tweets.
My apologies for the barrage of Palin videos and political posts. The election nears and I feel this is the most important election of my life. At the time I posted this, the video had 2,593 views and 36 comments.
Newsweek says Palin is not ready.
