Via MetaFilter: Election got you down? Can’t relax? What you need is a live webcam of a box full of puppies. They were all sleeping a while ago, and Mr. Green Collar woke everybody up.
UPDATE: Poo. The puppies are off the air. I’ll keep checking.

Thank you, dear Proprietess, for the box of puppies. My guess is that they’re Akitas.
Makes filing for unemployment easier.

shucks…cam off air….

….well, talk about free speech…XM-Sirius 202’s Ron Bennington i’viewed Larry St.Clair , the gay “bitch” (his word) who claims to have performed oral on Obama in a limo and also in Larry’s apartment. Very icky to listen to, but I listened…oh well. What a way to dampen a joyous mood.
…sis-in-law emailed from The Loop…she just picked up VIP “Headquarters” tickets at the Hyatt for the giant rally tonight…she reports “feels like it’s 75 degrees, Grant Park flowers still in bloom, very exited atmosphere—international film and news crews tripping over themselves everywhere, all ready for action.”

I’m wrong. They’re Shiba Inus.
What they are is off the air now. Darn.

Obama’s last campaign speech at Manassas, Virginia last night. Truly inspiring, especially given the day he had yesterday (with the news of his grandmother’s death).

gee Moe99…now I’m “Fired Up! Ready To Go!”

So, before the results skew any of us on this subject — The Electoral College: ancient relic that should go into the archive, or vital device to ensure campaigning doesn’t just focus on the top ten metro areas?
Every time i almost talk myself into thinking we should abandon this charming device of the Founders (meant to work as the Senate was designed, “a saucer into which the popular passions may be poured until they cool”), i wonder if the law of unintended consequences could mean that better the flawed system we know than the flaws innovation might introduce into the process.
Plus, what would the economy of New Hampshire do without it? And we’d miss the annual “what if” thumbsucker about “the faithless elector.”

I vote for a national popular vote election…more than 24 hours, maybe over a weekend, and the polls close everywhere in the US simultaneously.
Enough electoral drama!

Oh, and before the voting ends, you need one more dose of campaign video . . .

Election Day music. As Robbie says, you all know the Doctor. We’re having a real problem with Chuck Todd talking about Ohio. If you believe W won Ohio in 2004 without Blackwell and Diebold, seek professional help.
How is it that we got Rev. Wright ads in The Last Days and no Hagee? I mean, if the media “is” so in the bag for Obama, why has it been months since anybody heard about McCain’s rev that calls the Catholic Church ‘the Great Whore’?
You know, it will be nice to have a Vice President that’s not a reptile thrall of the oil industry. Or was he actually running the oil industry?
Fact is, it’s been an eight year nightmare of misgoverning by PNAC and the American Enterprise Institute, in a fucking Swiftboat World. Republicans can lie there asses off and claim large turnouts favor McOldFart, but it’s all over.
Best argument for shitcanning the Electoral College? Pretzeldent W. It’s actually almost never made a difference, but I suppose the same argument holds for the Supreme Court.
McCain’s campaign is lobbying to count alleged military absentee ballots in Virginia. Maybe the asshole could have voted for vets in the first place instead of sticking with the niggardly policies of the current misAdministration. They might have had timely postal service.
Not with somebody else‘s. Remember when the election used to be about keeping you safe from terriss? Or Senner Obama? Or other words of more than two easily elidable syllables? Or using ‘hate’ as a noun when hatred is a perfectly excellent word? Or ‘torture as an intransitive verb? Seems to be the economy again.
We live in South Carolina. People here are so dumb they think Lindsey Graham isn’t a bald-faced liar. Twenty minutes ago, we got a robocall asking us start with the idea that Barack Obama is ‘foreign’. The polls close in 90 minutes. We already voted, but who in the world did these idiots think they were going to influence?
