  1. I cast my ballot for Sen. Obama the week before last, and boy did it feel good. Go, Obama!

  2. It’s going to be a landslide for him. The McCain / Palin ticket is discrediting itself more and more each day. She broke with him on the issue of gay marriage – they are disagreeing BEFORE the polls open, so, you know, not a good move!

    The world’s faith in America has a chance to be restored after 8 disastrous years of cowboy isolationism. The Republican base of racist rednecks have been exposed for what they really are and are about to find out that the majority of their fellow citizens don’t share their views. It is refreshing to watch America reject the horrible narrow-mindedness of Bush in favour of someone who understands how important it is to reject division and fear mongering and bring people together regardless of their values.

  3. Do not count your chickens before they are hatched: Republican vote rigging got Bush into the White House, it can do the same for McCain.

  4. funny you should mention it Matt – found this on Peter Tatchell’s website…

    London, UK – 20 October 2008

    The US presidential election will not be free and fair, because millions of electors will either not be allowed to vote or will not have their votes properly counted. It could cost Barack Obama the White House, even if he wins most of the votes on November 4.

    This sensational claim is based on research by the New York Times (NYT) and BBC Newsnight.

    The NYT found that in some states for every new voter registered in the last couple of months, two voters have been removed – negating Obama’s massive voter registration drive. This voter purging could mean fewer people voting next month than voted in 2004.

    The article goes on, but you get the idea.

  5. Matt- you appear to be on the money with that one, Peter Tatchell’s column in the Guardian quotes other sources such as the New York Times which suggest a silent conspiracy of vote rigging by the Republicans.
    According to the New york times for every Democrat who registers to vote, two are being shunted off the electoral register.
