Whatever Side of the Couch You're On

Whatever side of the couch you're on, THIS HEADLINE SHOULD INTEREST YOU. Yes, visually, I just grabbed you by the collar and shook you.

But that's because whatever side of the tug of war you're on, you better tug a little harder:

AP Poll Shows Much Closer Race Than Most Other Surveys: Obama leads by just 1 point

Start planning your Election Night parties - grab the foam fingers, popcorn, and shirts for your team: it's going to be close.

I'll have you know that there is still over a week and a half yet until the election - and I for one am praying for a decisive vote, instead of a repeat of the Florida/Ohio fiasco that we all remember only too well. Of course, I hope that it is decisively in favor of McCain/Palin :) .....
Love, Mom

Rooting with "Mom" on the outcome.
As for a close election, Americans enjoy their games much more if they are close. None of us prefer a football game where the score is 48 - 0, or a basketball game's final score of 113 - 37, even if the home team wins.

(Yes, the metaphor of election as ballgame is intentional.)

I've assumed from the beginning that the media will say that Obama is far in the lead in the polls, then if the election is close or he loses, they'll immediately start riots in the streets by saying the election was stolen again by the Republicans.

Okay, the frustrating part of sharing a computer is that someone else may be signed onto their gmail and when you decide to check your blog, you are already signed on as someone else...like ME making a comment and it says STUART SAID!... I'm not Stuart, but Sue's brother is! ggrrr...why didn't he sign out?..anyway, that previous comment is mine and Stuart ...well, he wouldn't leave a comment, let alone be pro-Republican. Not to say he's pro-Obama, he's just not too keen on Bush right now.
