Hurricane? But What About My Campaign?

Stay classy, Mitt: “We’re counting on Ohio. I know the people of the Atlantic Coast are counting on Ohio and the rest of our states [for disaster-relief donations]. But I also think the people of the entire nation are counting on Ohio. Because my guess is — my guess is that if Ohio votes me in as president, I’ll be the next president of the United States.” [LAT]

There’s the Mittens everyone remembers.

Better to just shut up.

@ManchuCandidate: I’d rather him continue to say stupid shit.

Truly speaking about the only person he cares about–himself.

Not even looking at all those wildly varying polls at this point … need this to be over.

We’re in four a long, destructive four years if this entitled douche wins. I’m with Bloggie; this stopped being fun a while ago.

@blogenfreude: “Elections in the US are like multiple choice tests in which all of the answers are wrong” to paraphrase an excellent quote.

The only place I check now is fivethirtyeight. Nate Silver’s sharp analysis and comforting prose help relieve extreme anxiety. I hope that he’s being serviced nightly by the partner of his choice for all of his work for the community & country. P.S. I’ve heard he has teh gay.

@¡Andrew!: Wingnuts have taken to calling Nate effeminate, because we all know math is hard for girly-men.

@nojo: Right? We all know what a manly personage it was who invented the conceptual background of the computer, right? Computers are TOTALLY straight.

@nojo: His personal ones and zeroes aside, I noticed that he’s getting pummeled in the twittersphere for something or other. Since one flaw in the Twitter is finding the Original Tweet, I’m just assuming that he’s running numbers that are reasonably positive for Plouffe & Co.

ADD: when you are 24 hours into a brownout, twitter is the most energy efficient way to stay “connected”.

@Beggars Biscuit: Politico ran a highly critical story yesterday in which David Brooks facetiously called him a “wizard,” the perfect response to which was obviously this.

@mellbell: Yeah, I saw that. It was unusual to see an all caps tweet in my feed from someone other than Richard Lewis or Keef O.

I’d ask about the thoughts of Yoda Pez and Cat Stick at this point, but I heard they’re in cahoots with that asshole Mike Lee.

@flippin eck: Obama 280-235 (with Rasmussen), 303-220 (without).

Is Nate still calling it 75% Obama? Sounds about right.

Oh, and Cat Stick needs dusting. Filthy kitty.

@Tommmcatt May Just Have Some MJ In His System As Well, So What?: Turing drew to some degree on the work of mathematician Kurt Godel, whose sexuality I believe resembled Spock’s but without pon farr.

Well, to be fair. They never listen anyway.
