Call me crazy (or worse) and throw pies at me (or worse),
but I think this perception that this is a "close" race is wrong.

I think it's going to be a debacle for Kerry just as it was for McGovern in


Of course I may be wrong, it happens.
Y'all will know then how to judge what I say in the future.

But, if it IS a debacle, and you thought it was going to be a "close" race,
you have to ask yourself, "Why didn't I see this coming?"

I'd say it's because our opinions are malformed due to all the thalidomide
the media is spewing.
I think we're suckers to soak it up uncritically.
But it will be heartening because so many saw through all the BS.

And if you're wrong about this election -- it's not close, it's a debacle,
then likely your opinions on other things such as Iraq, Afghanistan and N.
Korea need some re-evaluation as well having likely been formed by the same
disinforming media.

I think this election is like when we see someone on eBay hawking some bit
of old computer hardware as "rare!" and people fall all over themselves
bidding on the thing. Some of say, Hell, I've got 20 of those and walk away.

Of course, if it IS close, maybe I'll join Sellam and go elsewhere because
how could so many people be fooled.

Guess I'll go eat worms as the ditty goes.
