Axis Bold As Love Prediction of the Night (First Edition, After Watching a Bunch of Bloggers Chewing with Open Mouths)

|

They've just served dinner here at the CNN blogger bash for the election and the results are in: Bloggers have table manner similar to the Frankenstein monster (without the couth to wear a sports jacket even while terrorizing villagers).

But the truly unmotivated prognistication: The Webb/Allen race in Virginia, coupled with the idiotic anti-gay marriage amendment in a state that is famously for lovers, is the real bellwether state this time around. If Webb wins and the anti-gay marriage amendment goes down like Mark Foley at a Boy Scout Jamboree, we are entering a bizarrely libertarian era in American politics, where the voters are saying enough to an overspending and expansionist state.

Sadly, first in a series of unsubstantiated claims of tectonic political shifts.

  1. I think they already projected (not called) a victory for the SSM ban. And Webb/Allen keeps see-sawing. Much to my dismay, I think Allen will pull this out.

  2. If Webb wins and the anti-gay marriage amendment goes down like Mark Foley at a Boy Scout Jamboree, we are entering a bizarrely libertarian era in American politics, where the voters are saying enough to an overspending and expansionist state.

    I have an unsubstantiated claim of tectonic political shift of my own. If women are turning out to vote big for the Democrats, despite the presumed clear and present danger to children that only the continued occupation of Iraq can prevent, then shouldn’t that indicate that Security Moms have ground their swords back into goal posts?

    …anyone know the male/female break down in favor/opposed to using marriage to discriminate against people? Wouldn’t it be nice if such wedge, ballot issues backfired on the culture warriors? It’s happened before. Wasn’t it the Soccer Moms who were given credit for voting in Clinton, twice, ’cause the opposition was seen as so mean?

  3. Shhhh Nick, don’t jinx it….

    Personally, i have no confidence in Virginia voters’ sanity. A more mean-spirited system the country has hardly ever seen.

  4. You obviously haven’t gone through a race in South Carolina.

  5. I thought you were probably at that scene, Nick.
