Maybe I’m wrong, maybe John McCain has a shot in PA. A new poll has Obama only up by 4 in PA, with 9 undecided. I still think it’s unlikely but if you’re a New Yorker and want to go to PA to help out this weekend, contact me and I’ll help make that happen.

When I’m making a questionable call in poker, I’ll sometimes say “I’m about to look like a total genius or a total idiot.” The guy was on a bluff and my bottom pair gets me a large pot? Disco. The guy has a full-house and my bottom pair is no good? Moron.
Should a miracle occur and McCain win Pennsylvania, he will be the smartest man alive who ran the best campaign of all time. But if he invests money to lose a state that hasn’t voted Republican since 1988 and sends one and a half Democrats to the U.S. Senate, people might wonder why he didn’t focus on the states George W. Bush won a mere four years ago, and “idiot” will be too charitable.
