No, of course I'm not joking. Have you learned nothing? Satire is dead, and wingnuts continue to dance on its grave.

Drudge is flogging a column in Investor's Business Daily that whines about how the Obamas have put up too many Christmas trees:

Now, how much carbon do you suppose those 54 trees could be sequestering had they not been chopped by this green president?

You probably remember back in September when Jimmy Carter's grandson, James Carter IV, was instrumental in digging up and helping publicize Romney's 47% video. We all enjoyed the poetic justice of the moment that very likely contributed to Romney's defeat.

Now James Carter IV is at it again, this time digging up actual audio of Republican strategist Lee Atwater explaining the "Southern Strategy":

It has become, for liberals and leftists enraged by the way Republicans never suffer the consequences for turning electoral politics into a cesspool, a kind of smoking gun. The late, legendarily brutal campaign consultant Lee Atwater explains how Republicans can win the vote of racists without sounding racist themselves...

What happened? Where am I?

I think I suffered some kind of blackout. It's like the last few hours just...disappeared.

Wed. AM Update: Wang rises! Sam Wang's prediction now at 318 electoral votes, see below.

New GNM-HRM Poll: Race Deadlocked

by MeMeMeMeMe

A new poll conducted by Good News McCain Research™ on behalf of HorseRace Media has the national race tied, showing Mitt Romney trailing President Obama by only 20 points, within the poll's 30-point margin of error.

"This race is now a statistical dead heat, with Romney surging back from our last poll showing him trailing by 21 points", said GNM Research™ in a tweet.

Just thought I'd get that out there.


Overall a pretty good polling day for Obama. Would like to see Colorado less tight, of course.

NBC First Read:

The race between President Barack Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney is locked in a dead heat in Colorado, while the president maintains a narrow edge in the other Western swing state of Nevada.
Among registered voters in the Colorado poll, Obama is ahead 48-47.
Added-Average of the four Colorado polls today:

Obama: 48.25
Romney: 45.75

That's it, we're done. We win.

by MeMeMeMeMe

Barack Obama just won the election.

Bill Kristol has declared Mitt Romney the winner of tonight's debate:

Mitt Romney is more than holding his own with Barack Obama tonight.
That's Bill Kristol. Do you know what this means?

Just in from CNN:

BREAKING: Results of CNN-ORC post-debate poll of debate watchers. Who won debate? Obama 48, Romney 40. +/- 4.5% #CNNDebate
If this snap poll had the same heavily Republican composition as CNN's snap poll of the last debate, then this is a huge Obama victory.

UPDATE 1: Okay, now we know it was a clear Obama win. David Gergen tweets:

CNN poll finds clear Obama win. But also finds that both Romney passed the Commander in Chief test for majority polled
Here's what he's referring to:
More of CNN post debate Poll: Can Obama handle job of Cmdr. in Chief? Yes: 63%. Can Romney? Yes: 60%.
So, more people think Obama passed the test than Romney = It's a clear Romney victory!

UPDATE 2: Another reason we know we won is CNN declares it too close to call, thus contradicting their own poll and themselves in just a few short lines:

A CNN/ORC International Poll following Monday's presidential debate found those who watched the third and final head-to-head matchup of President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney did not identify a clear winner.

Debate viewers split 48% for Obama and 40% for Romney in the poll, a margin within the sampling error of plus or minus 4.5%

Sweet Lordy McGordy, CNN, even Fox wouldn't pull something like that.

Shorter CNN: Please God, HORSE RACE.
