These final hours have really brought an armada of right-wing articles making a desperate plea against an inevitable Obama victory in the polls. They are on the verge of publicly declaring their prayers for racism to give McCain a surprise victory,putting all their money and credibility on The Bradley Effect. Logic and reason have left them; now the madness begins and they turn to six-breasted beasts humping each other for the scraps of rancid meat left. All of them right up till the zero hour yelling and screaming gibberish: O Lord! Let not the Socialist take our money! Taxes for the Mighty Government Waste Machine funding our thriving economy! All will End! Then,a coup de tat on McCain as Palin watches with smug glee,stupidly gripping to her the dream of her own 2012 run.

Headlines. Viciousness on all sides. Hatred and disgust against anything that reminds them of Loss. It is truly a terrible sight: the once-proud officers of privilege now looking out at a very blue map. No more domestic surveillance,no more torture,no more hawkish foreign policies leading to multiple wars with no understanding of culture but rather an eye on oil. Drill baby drill. An awful scene to behold for the GOP believer: fear of losing that strict father morality America has wrought on this planet at the dawn of the twenty-first century.
The map they cling to has one path for McCain,and that is taking out 6-point leads or more in multiple states where he has been outgunned for the last 8 months. CO,NV,VA. They cling to FL and OH,all firewalls for McCain’s doomed campaign. NC,GA,MO,IN now all on the verge… rather than tightening his lead in any significant way,he’s lost his lead in even more traditional red states,stupidly sacrificing electoral votes for a timid 6 point deficit in the national polls.
Tomorrow, vote. The National Affairs Desk Studio & Armory – Extended Mobile Unit has been set up and is ready to go. You will all suffer my degrading rants and analysis and succumb to the dumb fear and cheap thrills of Election Night Coverage,every hour or so. All recorded for posterity. Mark Belling is invited,but he’s probably too scared to venture out in public,opting to stay close to the basement shitter, flashlight and a crank-radio at hand,listening in silence as state by state call out for his shame. With each state his heart pumps a little more bile from his gall bladder into his brain,a common diagnosis for those on the losing side of politics. He’ll be with the rest of them come Wednesday morning,bitterness saved up and bottled with a shelf-life of 8 years spewing even more Hate than Bush & Jesus both encouraged them to the previous 8 years.
The Fix Is In. Will they hold?
