If I was a betting man, then I would wager yes. Frankly there really is no viable reason to believe that Obama will triumph in two weeks. Every indicator points to a Romney romp frankly. Yet, some still cling to “hope” RS McCain, like me, is not an expert with a New York Times column, yet still…
I dunno. I’m not an expert with a New York Times column or anything, much less a Magical Forecasting Model™ that can divine future events with the precise scientific exactitude of 1/10 of one percent.
This morning, Silver told us that Ohio might be a crucial battleground, which might be news to a victim who just escaped from an underground rape-dungeon after nine months of being held hostage and tortured by a sociopathic sex offender. But to everyone else, it’s not news at all.
My apologies for the bizarre word-imagery. Debate-night aftermath, a shortage of sleep and other psychological stress sometimes have this effect on my prose. But don’t worry. After 24 debates in 16 months, I’m used to it by now. And speaking of bizarre word-imagery, Ace of Spades:
“It’s going to be a grim affair, grim and horrible and just sad, but there’ll be lots of alcohol.”
That’s in reaction to unmistakable evidence of doom and gloom inObama’s increasingly desperate fundraising e-mails. The plural of “anecdote” is data, as they say, and you don’t need a Magical Forecasting Model™ to see the dots in this emerging gestalt pattern, including the Gloria Allred “October surprise” gambit. Never heard a peep about this until after Obama got his ass kicked in the first debate, did ya?
Lots more at the link. We keep hearing rumors that Team Obama is examining ways to win that do not include Ohio, or that they have given up on North Carolina, maybe Virginia, and Colorado, we see the polls, we can sense the momentum, and again, I see no way Obama wins.
