Choice in the Matter

I completed my absentee ballot yesterday. It is getting mailed this morning.

Like a moron, I voted for Nader by accident.


No, but like a moron, I had licked the inner envelope (yes, there is a second outer one as well!) before I realized I hadn't taken a picture of my SAT-like circle fill-in process. I was going to use that for the image of this blog entry.

I didn't dare try to take it out and snap before the glue dried. I'm sure if it came open or I taped it, that the vote wouldn't be counted. So you'll have to go with some cheesy image I got off the internets.

I don't want to get too cushy - but I love that most of the polls have Obama ahead, even in some red and purple states. But overall, he was running 3.9-12 points ahead, depending on the poll. Not to be complacent, but McCain was ahead in three of the state polls, but in none of the national ones.

...and...some polls (IBD, which was had Obama at the lowest margin) at one point last week had McCain favored at like 72% amongst 18-24 year olds.

Yeah, at first you'd say, "ZOIKS", until you realize that the 18-24 year olds they polled, who they could get ahold of, were mostly on military college campuses. Most other 18-24 year olds use cell phones, not land lines - so they were not being polled.

...and in late last week, IBD only had Obama up by a margin of one. So even at 3.9, it is improving.

But do NOT go down Easy St. You still have to vote!
