So who's it going to be? Buster McMarxist or Methuselah Jones?
I am going to continue with my gloomy appraisal of how progressive US voters actually are, and say:
Obama 266 McCain 272
Which gives Obama most of the battleground states (including, very charitably I think, Nevada, Colorado, and Ohio), but leaves Pennsylvania and Florida swinging to McCain and pushing him over the edge.
To quote Sideshow Bob: "Your guilty conscience may move you to vote Democratic, but deep down you long for a cold-hearted Republican to lower taxes, brutalize criminals, and rule you like a king."
(Korean baseball fans, impromptu, to the tune of Mary Had a Little Lamb): "Dongjoo, Dongjoo, Kim Dongjoo Dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah! Dongjoo, Dongjoo Kim Dongjoo! [Something in Korean] Kim Dongjoo!" (upon which Kim Dongjoo knocks in the winning RBI to beat Japan in the semi-finals).
American twentysomethings, on trying to understand the nature of the Ippon in Judo: "Oh, faceslam!... Faceslam is a thousand points!!!"
New Zealand field hockey fan, during a 5-minute video review: "The Chinese built the Great Wall faster than this!"
New Zealand field hockey fan, on seeing an injured Spaniard on the field: "Get up, this isn't soccer!"
Baseball announcer, having to introduce the Olympic mascots, which have no traits describable in the English language: "It's Fuwa time!...Fuwa for you!"
P.S. We saw Jackie Chan! 20 feet away! Beat that for Chineseness, Chronomorph!
