K.I.S.S. IT GOODBYE

As in, 'keep it simple...Scott.' Sorry if I just disappointed any Ace Frehley fans, but as far as this 'Ace' * can tell, the current political climate pretty much reduces to this:



Any commentary I could offer would simply restate the obvious, other than to note that this analysis hails from the blog State of the Union.

UPDATE:

Here's the breakdown by electoral votes of states that are pretty much in Obama's hip pocket. He's never ever trailed in any of these states and typically enjoys significant leads in all of the following:

CALIFORNIA 55
NEW YORK 31
ILLINOIS 21
PENNSYLVANIA 21
MICHIGAN 17
NEW JERSEY 15
MASSACHUSETTS 12
WASHINGTON 11
MARYLAND 10
MINNESOTA 10
WISCONSIN 10
COLORADO 9
CONNECTICUT 7
IOWA 7
OREGON 7
NEVADA 5
NEW MEXICO 5
HAWAII 4
MAINE 4
NEW HAMPSHIRE 4
RHODE ISLAND 4
DELAWARE 3
D OF COLUMBIA 3
VERMONT 3

TOTAL: 278 electoral votes

Even if Senator McCain could pull off a sweep of the remaining 'toss-ups' (Florida, Missouri, North Carolina, Ohio, Virginia) that would still leave him with 26 states with only 260 electoral votes. Barring another seismic event on the political landscape, this race is over. Let the hysterical perorations begin.

* It's a family nickname.

Peroratorically, high-five!11!

Too bad I didn't know you were at Origins too. Would have loved to see you cornered on two sides.

As you, don't count your chickens until they're hatched! I'm voting for Obama too, just holding my breath (sort of).

You probably already know my mail-in ballot was cast for McCain-Palin, but we can still agree to disagree, can't we?
