fun with math
as it stands, the polls and pundits are saying the current electoral college results are
OBAMA - 291
MCCAIN - 157
Undecided - 90
now, i'm no mathematician - in fact i don't even know how to spell that word, according to my spell check - but i'm pretty confident that 157 + 90 = not 270
270 is of course the magic number needed to win the election.
granted a number of the electoral college votes that have been "rewarded" to each candidate right now are from swing states with big enough leads to make an assumption so not all is said and done quite yet.
so on that note, i urge you to go vote tomorrow and invite you to my apartment for a results viewing party. champagne will be supplied. yay!
