Chuck Todd’s state-by-state analysis

leave a comment »

From the guy I would like to see hosting Meet the Press someday, Chuck Todd has posted his excellent state-by-state guide to Election Day:

Colorado: What a transformation. The Democratic dominance is taking place so fast that it appears the state forgot it was supposed to stop in “toss-up” land on its way from Red to Blue status. Democrats could win another House seat in the state, another Senate seat and see Obama carry the state. If I were the Republican Party, I’d make Michigan and Colorado my petri dishes for experiments to get the party’s groove back. Until the GOP can appeal to secular independents in the West and working class Democrats in the Midwest, they are going to be a minority party. The party’s comeback should start in one of these two states because they are microcosms of the GOP’s issues.

2008 Manopia Voter Guide

with one comment

This post will be an annual feature, and a continually-updated entry at Manopia. Here you will find a listing of Manopia-approved and endorsed candidates for public office. I will also occasionally toss in some un-endorsements — reserved for candidates who I find particularly objectionable and who deserve your scorn.

We will start this entry with some endorsements for candidates in my home state. This list is not exhaustive, nor is it meant to be:

Washington State
Governor:
*Dino Rossi, GOP Party

Attorney General:
*Rob McKenna, Republican

8th Congressional District
*Dave Reichert, Republican

4th Congressional District
*Doc Hastings, Republican

5th Congressional District
*Cathy McMorris-Rogers, Republican

You stay classy, Senator Kerry

with one comment

Yeah, this is a good time:

“Barack got asked the famous boxers or briefs question,” Kerry went on. “I was tempted to say commando.”

The senator said Obama successfully parried that question but that John McCain, the GOP nominee, had some problems.

“Then they asked McCain and McCain said, ‘Depends,’” Kerry said to lots of laughter from the crowd.
