Not really, since NBC has projected Nixon as the winner for the MO. Governor.

I voted for Nixon but that Hulshof dude just seemed like such a smarmy douche to me.

eh, I instituted my new 'none of the above' voting strategy.

The 'none of the above' voting strategy rests on the notion that none of these dumbasses deserves my vote. I wouldn't trust them to balance my checkbook, why would I trust them to run my country? I'm almost positive that if a family handed their checkbook to ANY of these clowns, they'd spend one hundred million dollars on dumb shit and then wonder why they were getting calls to pay the bills. they're fucking clueless.

the actual practice of 'none of the above' goes as such:

-if the contest between two 'new' people (like obama/mccain), I write in the vote.

-if the contest is incumbent/challenger, I vote for the challenger. I believe one of the tenants of this country that has been terribly ruined is the fact that we basically have a ruling class in washington DC. regardless of how well intentioned and possibly ideological you are when you are elected, the power corrupts you. having a staff of at least 20 who tell you your shit doesn't stink, having lobbyists tell you your vote is most important, these things don't foster 'for the people, by the people' as the forefathers intended. we need new blood and new ideas every few years. so, fuck incumbents.

-if a person is running unchallenged, I write in a canidate.

the great thing about this strategy is that it suits my (moderate/centrist) views--I have liberal leanings, and I have conservative leanings.

I am seeing that light rail sales tax in Jackson County, Mo. is failing as of this moment.

Obama needs those votes left in St. Louis county at an 80% margin.

Which means Missouri is red, sorry.

There are 7% of precincts left in St.L Co which should total about 36K votes, and 2% in Jackson.

Obama needs to win about 68% of those votes to win the state.

Holy SHIT.

Down to 600 votes with 2% of Jackson County outstanding.

I'm very proud of my state at this moment. It is sort of the silver lining in this election.
