    Ahhhh yes.. Becker and Fagan – the coolest, hippest songwriting duo ever.. And oh boy is their music so relevant today.

    Kick ass solos from the dude with the Telecaster. Almost did Denny Dias proud.

    Obama Over The Top On RCP Map

    RealClearPolitics takes the average of several national polls and uses it to construct an electoral vote map. Here’s their current results:

    Obama 277 (211 solid, 66 leaning)
    McCain 158 (143 solid, 15 leaning)
    Tossup 103

    It should be noted that Obama is ahead in several large tossup states. If the election were held today and each candidate won the states where he currently leads the results would be:

    Obama 353
    McCain 185

    At this point in the election, I think we need to assess how the candidates have run the campaign (the big picture). McCain has run the most apallingly inept campaign yet seen (making evenclinton look good by comparison). Obama has just been steady – he has stayed on theme and on point. McCain has vacillated from extremes – calling off his campaign, calling for the SEC chair to be fired, saying the economy is fundamentally sound, calling a crisis the next day, picking an incompetent VP, lying about her credentials, lying in his attack ads, shameless promoting the lies and pretending to be above the fray.
    He has alienated most of the media with his antics and they were predisposed to give him the benefit of the doubt until this erratic and inept campaign.

    From Fire Dog Lake

    Obama is not the most liberal senator.

    Every time I do a debate with some wingnut these days, they are always citing the National Journal poll that lists Obama as the most liberal member of the Senate. More liberal than Russ Feingold? Really? More liberal than socialist Bernie Sanders? Seriously?

    I guess it’s time to debunk this myth once again.

    Common sense alone should tell anyone that Barack Obama’s voting record is almost idential to Hillary Clinton’s, and she’s roundly considered a “centrist” Democrat. So how did the National Journal screw this up? Josh Patashnik at TNR actually did a good analysis.

    Where’s the Rossi beat Gregoire like a Red-Headed Stepchild thread?

    Where oh where is it hidden?

    Inquiring minds want to know.

    YLB spews:

    8 – Hmmm. Like the thread that talked about Bridges setting aside the final 2004 election result?

    How so many deluded fools followed the pied piper of Greenlake into the drink.

    zapporo spews:

    Spewage @9 – Funny thing is, still don’t see the thread? How can that be? Why is that? Rossi wasn’t perfect, but over and over he drove his point home. I won’t characterize Gregoire’s responses, but irritated petulant and snivel quickly come to mind.

    I am just SHOCKED there is no Rossi Gregoire debate thread at this liberal fringe gathering site.
