|WARNING: THIS SITE FEATURES ORIGINAL THINKING...Jim Croce once sang Don't tug on Superman's cape..., which seems like reasonable advice should we not wish to anger the supreme powers. We do have this duality in our culture: the Superman that is the state collective, the leftist call to a politics of meaning managed by the state, the deification of "we're from the government and we'll take care of you" - versus the Superman that celebrates individual freedom, private property, freedom of conscience, free enterprise, and limited government. We humbly take on the latter's mantle and, eschewing the feeble tug, we dare to PULL, in hope of seeing freedom's rescue from the encroaching nanny state. We invite you, dear reader, to come and pull as well... Additionally, if you assume that means that we are unflinching, unquestioning GOP zombies, that would be incorrect. We reject statism in any form and call on individuals in our country to return to the original, classical liberalism of our founders. (We're also passionate about art, photography, cooking, technology, Judeo/Christian values, and satire as unique, individual pursuits of happiness to celebrate.)|
Superman's product of the century (so far):
The One's coattails were insurmountable. Story and video here.
Keep on keeping on Dino. What you do does assist this state to be more accountable.
God Bless you Dino.
Pundits earlier this evening were saying that nothing was going to be close enough to earn recounts or another look.
Turns out that Norm Coleman and Al Franken are in a death match.
Calling John Fund. Calling John Fund. It's close...
As of 1 AM Pacific Time.
He'll need huge improvement in absentee ballots to overcome this.
Rossi rightly refuses to concede.
Only about half the WA state votes have been counted - we have a long history of absentee ballots changing elections.
Then, of course, we have 2004.
Re-elect Dino Rossi...
All the national networks have called the gubernatorial race here in WA.
The local news channels refuse to do so.
This with 0 votes counted out of Pierce County - and an untold amount of absentee ballots yet to be counted.
At this moment it's 628,495 Gregoire, 591,178 Rossi. That means that half of the votes have been counted.
It's 8:29 PM, most eastern counties not reporting - King County has not reported anything at all yet.
Snohomish County (just north of King County) highest reporting so far - substantially for Gregoire (and Obama).
Obama has pulled of the deception of all time. Only time will tell.
Let's see if Rossi can get re-elected...
Fox News is reporting, as I write this, that early voting results - some 29 million voters have voted so far - with 46% being registered Democrats and 37% being registered Republicans have voted 48% Obama to 47% McCain. Fox analysts are pointing out that this might have unexpected impact on exit polls.
I think it has impact on all polls. Meaning once again - they have all been wrong.
