On the inadvisability of the numerical measurement of Gallus gallus prior to the completion of incubation.
Do the American voters sometimes make bad decisions? Yes. Yes they do. Do they sometimes make good decisions? Hell yes. Is this election settled? Not by a longshot. The fact is that, at the end of the day, Sarah Palin and John McCain represent business as usual, and that has meant disaster, death, and economic collapse. So, you know, if you want the nation to continue imploding, vote Republican. I think it worth noting, after all, that while Bill Clinton liked to speak of his administration as building "a bridge to the twenty-first century," Sarah Palin has become best known for her bridge to nowhere.* And, of course, she was lying about that.
The Republicans are going to throw mud- they're going to throw it like crazy- but that's because it's all they've got. They will feign outrage over "lipstick on a pig" but nevertheless tell women that they cannot have an abortion even if raped by a family member. If we want to lose, we'll play the Republican game and talk about personalities. If we want to win we'll focus on the batshit crazy things the Republicans want to do (i.e. nothing) and how we're different.
And you know what? I think our changes are still pretty good:
So buckle the fuck down, people. In the last eight years maybe Democrats have gotten used to losing, but I came here to win.
* I should probably point out that I have no particular opinion on the bridge itself, but do rather disapprove of Palin's blatant lies on the subject.
