The Nightowl Newswrap

Yep, that Cheney endorsement helped McCain a whole helluva lot! Oh Jeez. Cheney's hometown newspaper endorsed Barack Obama today. "It is a foregone conclusion that Wyoming's three electoral votes will go to Sen. John McCain," the Casper Star-Tribune Editorial Board wrote. "It would be easy for the Star-Tribune to simply agree with the majority of voters in this red state and endorse the Republican candidate for president. But this isn't an ordinary election, and Sen. Barack Obama has the potential to be an extraordinary leader at a time we desperately need one."

What. A. Dumbass. The juror who was excused from duty to travel to her father's funeral is a pathetic liar. Her father didn't pass away - she flew to California to attend the Breeders' Cup. Yes. She lied to a federal judge to go to a horserace. She seriously needs to lose her license - she is was a licensed paralegal - and I think 30 days in the metro DC cooler for lying to the judge and contempt might do this dumbass a world of good.

What. A. Delusional. Dumbass. Senator Orin Hatch got his concern-troll on this morning in an interview with CNN, warning ominously that if Barack Obama is elected president the United States will "lose stature" across the globe.

In case you were not thoroughly convinced of Fred Barnes douchebaggery He is rather miffed that he had to rub elbows with the rabble. He went to cast his ballot in early voting in Alexandria, VA and is downright offended at all the "poor, old" people who were littering up the polls, trying to vote. The nerve...

I told you the 2012 republican primary has already started And Mittens just fired his opening shot. In an interview on NBC's Today show with Meredith Vieira this morning, he declined to assert that McCain is running a "dignified" campaign. Just wait until Mitt-of-the-Magic-Undies and Sarah-geddon start taking shots at one another in about three days...The rending of the modern GOP into two small, weak and marginalized parties is truly upon us...

She truly is the nastiest bitch on the face of the earth, a minion sent from hell The unctuous guttersnipe that is masquerading as the republican VP candidate continued her hate-saturated sprint to 2012 by asking the crowd at a rally in Jefferson City, MO today of the Democrats "do they think the terrorists...are the good guys?" Josh called it her "sleaziest moment yet" and I am inclined to agree. Let the record show that Kit Bond stood behind her and slightly to the right, grinning and clapping like the drunken monkey he is.

You know how we've been harping on Obama voters being undersampled? Yeah, about that...We have proof. When CPO (Cell Phone Only) voters are taken into account, Obama's numbers go up...and McCain's go down.

Win it for Terence Terence Tolbert, Barack Obama's state campaign director for Nevada passed away on Sunday in Las Vegas of a heart attack. The former aide to NY Mayor Michael Bloomberg was 44 years old.

Obama has highest favorability rating of any candidate in 16 years Obama enjoys 62% favorability rating - the highest of any presidential candidate tracked in Gallup's final pre-election polls dating back to 1992.

This should come as a no-brainer to parents everywhere The behavior of children and adolescents is influenced by television and video games. Teenagers who watch television shows with a lot of sex in their storylines are more likely to conceive a child. Children who play violent video games have behavior problems and poor impulse control.

Captain Ed loses his last toe-hold on sanity Ed Morrissey of Hot Air and the Captain's Quarters blog yesterday predicted that the republicans will pick up two seats in the house. I know. I needed to breathe into a paper bag myself, because I laughed so hard I hyperventilated. On case you haven't been following the house races, conservative estimates for Democratic gains have been in the eight to 12 range, and some House republican sources have predicted 25 to 30 seat loss for the GOP. Not a single major publication or political analyst has predicted any Republican gains tomorrow in the House. That's not optimism, Ed. That's delusion.

Before we go to the polls tomorrow, lets listen to what these Veterans have to say:
