O’Conner is down by just one point in Ohio. :shock:

As recently as two weeks ago, he was trailing by 10. This had long been a seat Republicans counted on winning, and planned on touting to other constituencies as proof that they can still win, if they show up.

I think Trump has a trial date of 12/16 for rape of a 13 year old. Might be bogus, but still a bad look?

Guys, if you want me to make this clear, I think Trump is a horrifying disaster of a person and thoroughly unfit for the Presidency and, for all her faults, Clinton is, by an immeasurable amount, the better and more qualified candidate and who I would vote for if I had to make that choice.

This is my worst, most embarrassing post on RM. Yes, even worse than the Backspacer one.

To my discredit, I think I got caught up in the pre-election hysteria as much as anyone else.

wait. what? So you .....? Would vote for trump? Hillary is not qualified? Turmp is not a horrifying disaster or a person?

Look, I don't know, and it's kind of a moot point anyway, but it was lunacy of me to be so complimentary to Clinton.

The hysterical reactions to Trump's victory have really brought home how foolish I was, I guess.

Trump is hardly my ideal President, I don't think such a thing exists, but he was arguably the better of the two choices on offer.

As I said, it reflects poorly on me that I only say this with the benefit of hindsight.

(Kind) of late on the whole 538 dustup, but I think it's a whole lot of arguing over nothing. 538's still always predicted a Clinton win, and odds percentages really mean jack shit in the end when the end result is a binary of either Clinton or Trump winning. Whether Clinton wins narrowly or broadly doesn't prove or disprove the odds 538 or any other of the aggregators out there.

woooof, dude

You should probably comb through your recent posts too, just to be sure.

Is this election over yet? I'm getting fatigue from the coverage.
