notes from
the MUCK . . .

How does your garden grow? With muck, muck and more muck! I spent much of today finishing the final muck box and then shifting muck from one box to the next. The first box, which the Big Lad is enthusiastically pointing out, has been rotting down for two years now and once we’d removed the top quarter of unrotted material, we found we’d hit the pay dirt.

Final Prediction

OK -- Here it is: I think Obama is going to pull out Ohio, Florida and North Carolina, and I am sticking with my sleeper pick of Missouri. Ohio and Florida should be in the bag based on the polls and I am going to suspend my cynicism about electoral shenanigans and trust that Obama's ground game will be good enough to make the margin too large for Republican thuggery to work. North Carolina is iffier, but I think that Elizabeth Dole's moronic senatorial campaign may actually be the nail in McCain's coffin. Missouri I just have a good feeling about. Which gives us:

I also think that Arizona, Indiana, West Virginia, Montana, and North Dakota are long-shot possibilities, but I wouldn't be shocked if Obama wins any of them in a real blow-out.

I also see the Dems with 58 Senate seats and 250 House seats at the end of the night.

I hope the line to vote tomorrow is at least two hours long. I've been waiting 4 years to cast this vote and I want to savor every minute of it.
