No matter how well the Prez does tonight the right wing echo chamber will declare a Mittbot victory. The MSM will call anything but a total Rick Perry-like meltdown by Romney a victory. Why? The MSM wants drama and a close election. The reporting on recent polls shows this: the talk has been of tightening instead of the real headline, Obama is at or over 50% in most national and swing state polls. Plus Ohio seems to be slipping away from the GOP. That’s why the estimable Nate Silver has bumped his victory chances up to around 85%.
See you in the Crack Van. I’ll bring some whiskey and wisecracks.
