Just a bit more election crap.
Goddammit, can someone just call North Carolina so we get it completely over with?

Oh, and according to some reports (and a few instances I've seen with my own eyes.), the far right wing is already imploding. (Fox News' reason why McCain lost? The financial crisis. Not the way the campaigns were run, not Failin' Palin, not the nutty supporters. Solely the financial crisis. Which according to Rush Limbaugh was Bill Clinton's fault.) And I'm trying not to laugh about it, but I'm failing miserably... mostly because the crap they're saying is basically the same crap the far LEFT wing was saying in '00/'04. (Voter fraud let's sue, the country's fucked I'm moving to Canada, and so forth.)

I dunno, a lot of even the left sites I've been reading have been singling out the financial crisis (along with, of course, McCain's handling of it) as the reason for the win. Even without Palin being a moron and the crazies, I think that at least it would've been a lot closer without it. It was the point Obama hammered home the most in the last days (the infomercial) and I sort of doubt he could've won as much of the lower-class white vote as he did without it.

Though of course, to act as if it was merely random chance that Obama handled it well and McCain didn't is foolish...

But Frank peed on that one ballot and noone wants to touch it! Ewwwww!

(Yeah, I'm not sure what the deal is, either. 100% of the Precincts have voted in according to CNN, so I will deal with wild accusations as to why: Appalachian Illuminati.)

The deal was apparently that they thought the vote would be close enough that absentee ballots might make up the difference for McCain (since the majority of absentee ballots are from overseas military). They finally realized that the gap was insurmountable.

Ah, okay! I didn't get much of a chance to look up it earlier, so good to know!

By now I've seen sites that have called North Carolina but not Missouri.

"As Missouri goes so goes the nation" looks to be in serious jeopardy, though.
