Finally...

... we get official word yesterday that Missouri blew it.

Republican John McCain has defeated President-elect Barack Obama in Missouri — the last state to be decided in the 2008 presidential election.

McCain's narrow victory over Obama breaks a bellwether streak in which Missourians had picked the winning presidential candidate in every election since 1956.
Of all the elections for us to get it wrong. Indiana and North Carolina voted for Obama, but we couldn't manage it.

In some ways it is difficult for me to understand, but then I also just had a conversation with three otherwise bright guys from three different parts of the state who are convinced that Sarah Palin may win the 2012 election. Maybe I should be surprised it was as close as it was.

Sarah Palin will shoot herself in her wolf long before she's on the national stage again...

Have you seen the footage of Palin giving an interview while a turkey is being slaughtered in the background? She's oblivious to the whole thing...

She scares the crap out of me though. In my opinion, she'd be a worse president than the current one, and that's saying something...
