I typically keep my posts about politics and my political beliefs to my personal Facebook. However, I will admit that I have been on a constant Â push to put all my content creation onto this blog. I have described it as “All things ‘Lord Andrei’.” As a result, I hope I don’t frighten off too [...]

Let's be frank: Norm Coleman doesn't have much of a future in electoral politics. Defeated Presidential candidates sometimes have nine lives, but defeated Senatorial candidates rarely do, and in his career running for statewide office, Coleman has lost to a professional wrestler, beaten a dead guy, and then tied a comedian. He doesn't have much to lose by fighting this to its bitter conclusion. But it's hard to envision how he'll come up with enough ballots to overtake Franken.
Rove (the engineer of the Bush campaign) has called a 338-200 EV Victory for Obama, with the junior senator picking up the votes for PA, VA, OH, FL, and NV. Rove hands the dead heat ties of MO, NC, and ND to McCain.
States that he have a within 4% on the polls add another potential (albeit unlikely) 68 EVs. The 1% or less states: ND, IN, NC, and MO are 40 EVs on their own. 378-160 would approach the routing of Bob Dole by Clinton (379-159).
I never thought I'd say this, but thanks to Karl Rove, I'm going to allow myself to be mildly optimistic tonight.
I'll be leaving the office at 3. People who wish to join our news night feel free to show up any time after (say) 4:30.
I hope that tomorrow I will replace "Yes we can" with "Yes we did"
No, really honestly. I have my choice of candidate... I admit this.
But above all else, I want each person in this country to have the legally granted right to express the same.
Government has tried very hard to tell us who can and can't vote. Government has tried very hard to tell us who we should vote for. But the decision is up to each and everyone of us. If you're a staunch democrat and think that McCain and Palin is the path... you need to vote it no matter what your friends have told you. If your republican family and upbringing are completely at odds because your heart and mind tells you Obama and Biden.. then vote that way.
It's private, it's confidential... but it's your decision.
Don't let another decision leave this country wondering... If we're polarised, then so be it. If we are a landslide.. so be it.
But do it. Vote. Tomorrow (if you haven't already taken advantage of early voting) Don't be fooled... Don't be misled. Find where your vote goes, go there, be there, see it through.
I think Hollywood got the message right this time:
Jesus Endorses Barack Obama; GOP calls Foul
With cries of obvious voter fraud and poll manipulation; Republican analyst Tom "Sparky" Eibinhauer pronounced that the endorsement of Barack Obama was a last ditch ploy to garner the liberal and social 'devout' group. "As far as the voter rolls noted this guy was marked as 'dead' last cycle and this smacks of some of the tricks that ACORN pulled." McCain campaign aide Linda Comodatina further pointed out that she didn't even believe that Jesus was in fact a legal American citizen pointing at his documented 'Middle East' origins. Despite this latest accusation, however, several members of the Utah Republican contingency assure our offices that Jesus is in fact American.
In Georgia the lambasting of "Jesus the Carpenter" has taken a further ugly turn. Congressional candidate Brent Underminer highlights Jesus's lack of relevance due to being no more than a community organiser. He further has linked the 'cult leader' to activities as a religious separatist, not merely being a member of, but in fact potentially leading an organisation described as "The Supper 13." Campaign ads from the North Carolina candidate for the 3rd district sewage and treatment plant (a position with a rotating 4 week term) Hank Hankus, suggests that the religious separatism proves that the Christian Lord and Saviour is Godless. Hankus' campaign staff could not be reached for comment on this.
Entertainer Jon Stewart of Comedy Central's "Daily Show" is now scheduled to interview the Christian Messiah on Monday's "Night before the Election" special. Says Stewart, "I have no idea what to ask him? I mean as a Jew the only level I can relate on is to ask how it was to give up being Kosher." Stewart's associate Steven Colbert followed up with, "Oh Come now Jon. Don't be a pansy." Comedy central was also unavailable for comment but did respond in a press junket by announcing that it would air a week of new "South Park" episodes satiring the endorsement.
This is a developing story...
But wanted to THANK EVERYONE who contributed.
This morning we broke the goal of raising over $1,000 to help the Obama Campaign.
There may be another push next week as we get down to the wire. But I wanted to take a moment to tell everyone who is supporting this, how important it is to me.
The answer to that is, "Very"
Putting positive energy into the next 2 wks here.
So.. this morning I'd raised $440 in my efforts to raise money for Obama's presidential race.
Surprisingly, within about an hour I was up to $915.
This is including the amount I've offered to fulfil. This means if I can get just 4 people to put forth $25 then we blast through the goal I set several months ago.
Thank you so much to all who've donated. Thank you to anyone who has thought about it...
Friday morning will be the day that the Obama Campaign looks at it's current finances and figures out how to deploy in battleground states. So donations today and tomorrow will help guide that decision.
As always.. any support, even if it's just getting out the word or talking to friends and families helps ...
This is where the message needs to get out to the swing states.
Every dollar helps bring this message to people in states that can swing from McCain to Obama.
Any amount can help. Repeat donations are especially welcomed.
I've been sitting at $440 for a while.
Wouldn't it be nice if there was someone who put the legislation in an easy to find place with translations out of the arcane language of 'legal' into hard facts of what the implications were?
Wouldn't you love to see who specifically tacked on the amendment to the bailout bill that said, "And by the way; all the taxes we used to collect from Puerto Rico for importing rum; lets give it back to their government for the next 2 years."
Wouldn't it be wonderful if the only topic the two parties agreed on wasn't "How can we make more laws to prevent a tertiary party from gaining a foothold to keep us in check?"
Will Barack Obama help fix these things? Probably not.
Does the party have a plan that might at least start reversing some of the problems that we've fallen into in the past 8 years? Oh yes.
I often hear that a president can't claim the economic rise and success that occurs during their term. That Clinton didn't help the economy; he inherited the work of Regan and Bush the first. Well, we see what the next president is about to inherit. And let me tell you. I don't see the budget snapping back in the next 4 years. I see it beginning to turn.
I don't like the idea of privatising Social Security and Health after what privatising and deregulation has done to the banking system. I don't like the idea of health being reduced to 'which state can offer the least for the least?'
I'm raising money in the hopes that my small contribution will join other's small contributions to help put into the White House the first candidate in pretty much my entire life that I can believe in.
I've set a goal for $1000 that I've helped raise. And truthfully, I'm really only hoping to get $750. Because if I can raise that much for Obama, I'll happily put in the other quarter.
I'm doing okay so far. But I am going to be on this for the next month. Because frankly... I don't like the outlook of a McCain administration.
Please consider supporting Obama's campaign with funds as well as your philosophical support. And most assuredly above all else. Vote. Even if your state seems like a done deal... Vote.
The current meme asks:
Post a picture of someone or something that is smarter than Sarah Palin
So I had to go with the most common denominator.
( Well, gosh I have to go with the obvious )
