Random commentary and senseless acts of blogging.
The first Republican president once said, "While the people retain their virtue and their vigilance, no administration by any extreme of wickedness or folly can seriously injure the government in the short space of four years." If Mr. Lincoln could see what's happened in these last three-and-a-half years, he might hedge a little on that statement.

Our GOTV efforts seem to be reaching saturation level. In calling Ohio today, I repeatedly spoke to people who said they had gotten several calls in the last few days; others didn't say it directly but acted as if such calls were expected and getting tiresome.
I just hope we're doing as much for Senate candidates. We have the potential to take back the Senate tomorrow, but it will take a strong GOTV effort, and only 3 of 10 seriously competitive races are in swing states; the rest are all in states that are strongly red. The house appears to be out of reach, but with huge turnout a surge that takes it back is an outside possibility.
My final pre-election prediction: I still think that it's Kerry, and not as close as people are predicting. I'm calling both FL and OH for Kerry, with a final of 325 - 213 in the EC.
