Cheer up …

… although what this means ain’t rightly clear to me.

Well, yeah, okay, I do know what it actually means.
I just don’t know if it means anything.
I mean, if you get my meaning.

    Sadly, this only reflects the preferences of those Americans who can and actually do READ.

    Unfortunately, the other 70% or so also get to vote ……

    More important, other *red* States charts are showing an increase to 50/50 for 50 (R) seats in the Senate. Irresyphilis of what MIssouri`s * fucking baby quackter does or does not do….. Which means, vice president Paul “Rocket” Ryan is the 51st tiebreaker vote in Senate Sneate!

    Here’s an e-book that was on the list, but isn’t there anymore – maybe because D’Souza’s latest is on there 3 times.

    The author is a recently promoted USAR Full Bull that sports crossed sabres, and probably the only conservative civil attorney in actual practice in Los Angeles.

    Yeah, what the Flea guy said. Not the same map as voters.

    There’s an innerestin book over in the right column, under
    Which VP Candidate is Selling More?
    Plugs book, “Promises to Keep: On Life and Politics”
    With all the ‘speeches’ Plugs has been giving, I’d
    think more dems would want to read all about his
    life, opinions, personal philosophy & all the presidents
    he’s known! Oh, wait, that means ‘reading’! Sorry,
    my mistake! Guess LOTF (1) was right.

    This is a cool post.

    Speaking of red and blue maps, there’s a study from Univ of Colorado that uses multiple economic factor in every state. It successfully predicted the winner of every presidential election from 1980 on. The model claims:

    * Romney will win in 2012.
    * Romney will get 320 electoral votes, and almost 53 percent of the popular vote.
    * Romney will carry all swing states.

    This all seems like a little much, though it is a delight to contemplate; and there is no guarantee that a model that has previously been successful 100% of the time will continue to be.

    However, it is certainly a counter balance to the current lib models that predict an Obama win.

    My own thought is that successful models often get details wrong but the over all picture right; so even if a swing state or two is lost, Romney will still win by a significant margin, even though things to not look very promising now.

    I don’t have a link for this story that is written in a way that I think is easy to read; however, this link has the facts if you read through it:
