Republican Mythical Voting Blocks~Cover For Vote Theft

The press brings up “the Bradley Effect” diligently, as programmed. Say it a zillion times a day. The Bradley Effect, about as real as Creationism. But it does plant an idea in the electorate’s minds, a reason why McCain wins on Tuesday: Oh, it was the Bradley Effect, the blatherers will pummel it home.
Another,”The Racists” of course,once they’re really desperate (also mostly died off by now, again, not the big vote they insult the country owning).
There was the “disgruntled Hillary Voters”, but it didn’t pan out.

Clash of Titans: The GM-Chrysler Merger, by Mumia Abu-Jamal

Listen Here

Clash of Titans: The GM-Chrysler Merger
[col. writ. 10/29/08] (c) ’08 Mumia Abu-Jamal

Within days, perhaps hours, expect the following breaking news: General Motors has merged with and acquired Chrysler.

There will be an air of jubilation in the announcement, but, upon a moment’s reflection, such joy will prove as effervescent and as impermanent as the fizz from a freshly opened bottle of soda.

A Nervous Monday

With the polls in Obama’s favor and the view of most pundits (not, of course, the consummate asshole Fred Barnes) that the election is his, I sit waiting for the expected dirty trick that Republicans are so good at pulling off. Whether it is voting machine manipulation or keeping voters away from the polls, or coming out with a new lie which is big enough to shake folks up, I don’t know. But the last couple of Presidential elections have left me damned worried.

Prediction: McCain wins courtesy of Palin’s pact with his Satanic Majesty

I predict McCain will win the electoral college by the votes in one state, and Obama will win the popular vote. Defying all the polls and the pundit’s predictions McCain will go to sleep when the returns are in thinking he’s been blessed by a miracle from Heaven. Perhaps he’ll believe that Palin’s praying with the Kenyan pastor Bishop Thomas Muthee snatched righteous victory from witch’s jaws of defeat.

The best candidate won but for the wrong reasons as the county heads for a depression

Obama won by outfluffing McCain, but now reality may slowly sink in. Though the Depression far less severe than if McCain won. A campaign based on unspecified hope followed by a depression, could easily lead to a blame game. The sooner we can put reality on the table by spreading around essays like this one, the easier it will be for Obama to do an adequate job.

I’m not trying to tear Obama down, just make him and for the people to expect him to do a possible job, instead a failing trying to do the impossible.

Now it’s our turn…

On Tuesday, I will climb into my Jeep Wrangler and drive three miles to the volunteer rescue squad headquarters here in my rural Blue Ridge Mountain community and, finally, have my say about who will be the next President of the United States, one of two U.S. Senators from Virginia, and my elected representative.

Obama poised to make election history

Barack Obama stood on the threshold of history Monday as polls gave the Democrat a solid lead over John McCain on the last day of campaigning for the most dramatic US presidential vote in a generation.

But McCain, a former prisoner of war in Vietnam, vowed to confound the pollsters to stage a comeback and wrench victory from the African-American Obama’s grasp on Tuesday.

Democrats hope for a clean sweep

Democrats are hoping to take a stranglehold on political power in Washington in Tuesday’s election and are all but assured of expanding their majorities in the Senate and House of Representatives.

Demoralized Republicans who fear seeing the White House fall to Democrat Barack Obama are bracing for more pain with the deepening economic crisis set to scythe through their ranks in Congress.

Obama leads McCain in six key states

Democrat Barack Obama leads Republican John McCain in six of eight key battleground states one day before the U.S. election, including the big prizes of Florida and Ohio, according to a series of Reuters/Zogby polls released on Monday.

Obama holds a 7-point edge over McCain among likely U.S. voters in a separate Reuters/C-SPAN/Zogby national tracking poll, up 1 percentage point from Sunday. The telephone poll has a margin of error of 2.9 percentage points.
