What's next? This is funny.
"I have already voted absentee for obama from here in munich germany
after registering many americans for the vote.
they polls do not cover the overwhelming support THE DEMOCRATIC TICKET has
with EX-PATS like myself and the over 10,000 americans here in munich alone."

WTF? Germans for Obama. We have a judge headed to court this morning. Obama seems to have the European vote all locked up. I guess the Electoral College will sort it out and failing that there's always the Supreme Court. What a mess. Between the economy and the politics, it just keeps getting to be a bigger mess all at the highest possible cost. Obama raised $150 million, but the cost of dirt is still the same. The press seems to be digging their own graves and the polls change daily. Check with Jim The Grave Digger. GM is cremating cash and neither Obama or McCain can change that. The billionaire Republicans and big labor unions are on the same team. It's crazy.
