Update: It looks like the margin will be around 17% or so. That’s unreal. Obama outperformed the polling by double digits! The biggest story, however, will surely be the continuing demographic shifts toward Obama and away from Hillary. We are now seeing pundits talking about what went wrong with the entire Clinton campaign. He’s a growth stock at this point. She’s declining.

But if the Franklin County Dems are going to start filing election complaints for every minor infraction of state campaigning laws, then you’d think they or […]Full Story... →
Appears so. RABid is officially dead, but our favorite wingnut smear merchant is back! This time, he says, focusing more on policy. We already know he secretly attends Obama rallies and mouths the “Yes We Can!” chant.
I wonder what the Plain Dealer will call this new effort?
I’m all giddy with my schadenfreude-like anticipation. Always did like a good trainwreck.Full Story... →
