Looks like polls are holding steady with about a 6 point race. And even Zogby's poll, much fluffed by the right, has moved back into familiar territory (h/t MyDD):
"There are two full days to go before Election Day and obviously anything can happen, but it is hard to see where McCain goes from here," pollster John Zogby said.
A special note to blogger friends: calm it down. Lay off the cable television noise and look at your baseball cards in your spare time. It is better for your (and everyone else's) health."
Hot Air asks "How soon will we know on election night?" and answers:
Pretty soon, potentially. Via CNN, a rundown of when the polls in various battleground states close (all times ET):7 p.m. Indiana, Virginia
7:30 p.m. Ohio, North Carolina
8 p.m. Pennsylvania, Florida, Missouri
9 p.m. Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, North Dakota
10 p.m. Nevada, Montana
I didn'92t include Iowa because it'92s not a battleground anymore, assuming it ever was, but that'92s also a 10 p.m. close for what it'92s worth.
Might be a quick night.
And, this is strange. Nazis endorse half-black presidential candidate Barack Obama (h/t Yglesias). This statement was written by Rocky Suhayda, chairman of the American Nazi Party, who lists his "likes" as "Hitler, white people." Dislikes? "Jews, immigrants, multinational corporations."'a0 WARNING: Hate speech to follow, so avert your eyes if you don't find crazy humorous at times:
White people are faced with either a negro or a total nutter who happens to have a pale face. Personally I'92d prefer the negro. National Socialists are not mindless haters. Here, I see a white man, who is almost dead, who declares he wants to fight endless wars around the globe to make the world safe for Judeo-capitalist exploitation, who supports the invasion of America by illegals'96basically a continuation of the last eight years of Emperor Bush. Then, we have a black man, who loves his own kind, belongs to a Black-Nationalist religion, is married to a black women'96when usually negroes who have '91made it'92 immediately land a white spouse as a kind of prize'96that'92s the kind of negro that I can respect. Any time that a prominent person embraces their racial heritage in a positive manner, it'92s good for all racially minded folks. Besides, America cares nothing for the interests of the white American worker, while having a love affair with just about every non-white on planet Earth. It'92d be poetic justice to have a non-white as titular chief over this decaying modern Sodom and Gomorrah.
Poetic justice? Wow. That's cute. So the Nazi freaks are willing to overcome their hatred in the name of irony. Neo-nazism has lost its bite, it seems. In some strange way, I'm almost disappointed in them.
This picture is priceless--a Klansmen with an Obama button.
There are several more statements, many much more vile (this one is relatively mild), including one from a guy that lists his likes as "White people, karaoke, environmentalists."
