More attention deficit commentary

Greetings, loyal minions. Your Maximum Leader was too busy celebrating Trafalgar Day yesterday to have time to post anything… Here is some ADD-style commentary for you all…

In a comment to an earlier post, minion Huck Foley indicated that he was not going to be voting for Mark Warner in the VA Senate race because he didn’t want to contribute to a fillibuster-proof Democrat majority in the US Senate after the election. Actually, your Maximum Leader has thought of that very point in considering his vote. Indeed, that very reason is the only one he can think of to pull the trigger for Jim Gilmore. Alas, the Warner/Gilmore race isn’t even close, so it doesn’t make much of a difference. Your Maximum Leader is still planning on voting for Warner - but he might yet change his mind.

All these polls showing Obama with wide leads over McCain tend to be polls of “registered voters.” Your Maximum Leader is no pollster but he has always been of the mind that “registered” is not as good as “likely.” Polls of “likely” voters are much closer. He thinks these polls will tighten up some. He believes that Obama probably is not doing as well in Pennsylvania and Ohio as many people think. But in the end, he believes that Obama is going to win in a few days.

Your Maximum Leader still can’t decide on which team in the World Series to root for. Would you like to buy your Maximum Leader’s powerful ju-ju as a fairweather fan? He’s open to solicitations for temporary fandom.

Lastly, your Maximum Leader is all excited because he is going to get a short visit at the Villainschloss from the Smallholder this weekend. Your Maximum Leader will have to stock up on beer and snacks. Perhaps we’ll have a Bruce Campbell film-fest!

Carry on.

Ahem! The comment-posting thingamabob has helpfully deleted most of my text. Some swearwords may have been said at that point. Where was I?
Ah!
“Indeed, that very reason is the only one he can think of to pull the trigger for Jim Gilmore. Alas, the Warner/Gilmore race isn’t even close, so it doesn’t make much of a difference. Your Maximum Leader is still planning on voting for Warner “

This humble minion grovelingly points out, your Maximumness, that if that were an argument against voting for Gilmore, it would have kind of negated itself before it even reached the end of itself, insofar as its meaninglessness would kind of cut both ways. But of course this only proves that your Leaderness was making no such argument and I of course am only pointing this out for, er, for any uh less perspicacious readers, yes that’s it.
But actually, sir, I didn’t slink in here today to um to do whatever it was I did in that last paragraph, no indeed, I came in here to talk about SkippyStalin behind his back. In a helpful, caring way, of course. It’s the comments thingy on Skippy’s blog, sir. It’s fucking hosed.



You are always welcome to talk about Skippy here. I talk about him all the time actually.

I may yet pull the trigger for Gilmore. If only to do a little (hopeless) part to keep the fillibuster-proof Senate from becoming a reality. And also because I “might” have a friendly wager on the margin of a Warner victory. I hate to say it, but the VA Senate race was over the moment Mark Warner declared… The question now is just the voting…

Now if I lived in North Carolina and could vote for Libby Dole I certainly would… She really does need the help and it might make a difference…

Yeah. I’m just venting because I’m so conflicted about it myownself I voted for Jim Webb based on him being the best guy, despite party affiliation, but now here’s me doing the opposite of that. What’s a minion to think, eh?
