US-elections: the endgame
« on: October 20, 2008, 03:40:23 PM »

This is the endgame - the all-important period when sides (especially the losing side) go for broke. All debates are over. No major press appearances are happening. This is the time to bring into play information that will not be properly verified. We are a country that is used to looking at everything in terms of scores, starting from the state of the economy (exemplified by the stock market) to the numerous polls that try to provide a snapshot of voters' thoughts. True to that tradition, people are analyzing micro-changes in polling numbers and invent trends where there are none.

What happens in less than 3 weeks time?

Predictions? Thoughts?

What happens in my outsider view is that McCain campaign will increase its vitriolic attack on Obama saying that he is a Nigger, Arab, Terrorist, Communist, Muslim and thze guy who wants to increase taxes of the poor people (who earn more than 250K$ a year). They will have the opportunity to reveal their true nature. And Palin will have more opportunities to seduce male voters.

I was flipping through channels yesterday and I see Palin at some rally, clenching her fist and talking with enthusiasm about the "wonderful economic indicators" in her state.

I can understand why guys fall for her - I had a crush on Tina Fey and Palin is funnier than her.

She was really good in the SNL skit.

I think that rap song was really funny.
