Electoral College

I appreciate that the press needs to feed the beast in order to function. It behooves them for the presidential race to seem really close. But, let's think about this: In 1980, Ronald Reagan won with 50.7% of the popular vote. Of course, that 50.7% represented 489 electoral votes, leaving 49 for poor Jimmy Carter. Interesting how these landslides work, huh? I'm saying it again: Obama gets over 300 EV. And I'm with my friend Big Burt: McCain concedes before the Alaska votes are in.

And if you're really freaking out, send Barack some dough. It makes you feel better.
