Obama is still president! And Republicans are still dicks. Obama ran hard on raising taxes on households earning over $250,000 a year, and won reelection on that issue. But Republicans are insisting that this is the one issue on which they will not compromise. Dicks.
No news is good news. (Unless you're Kathleen Drew. Or a Republican.) Nothing much changed in yesterday's ballot drops in Washington State. Pretty much everything that was ahead still is ahead, and there's no sign yet of any big late voter trends.
Hey Seattle Times...? How'd that political advertising experiment work out for you? Um, not so well.
Why does God hate Chris Christie? A little more than a week after Superstorm Sandy slammed into New Jersey, devastating the coastline and leaving millions without electricity, a powerful nor'easter dumped up to a foot of snow on the region, knocking out power to hundreds of thousands more.

19 16 Democrats and only 1 4 Republicans.
And by "Nate Silver," of course he means "Math." Unskewed Polling master "mind" Dean Chambers admits that "Nate Silver was right" about his polling projections.
