• As Missouri Goes, So Goes 46% of The Nation

    You thought the election was over, but you were wrong, except now you actually are right. According to Politico, Missouri has been called!

    Missouri finally, goes for McCain.

    The Republican won the state by a bit more than 4,000 votes.

    That would leave Obama at 365 electoral votes.

    Now, on the one hand, you've got those 365 electoral votes for Barack Obama. But on the other hand, Missouri has gone to the victor in 25 of the past 26 elections.

    So you're either ignoring numbers or history. They say those who ignore history are forced to repeat it, but they don't say anything about those who ignore numbers, so I'm going to go ahead and call the election for John McCain.

    UPDATE: Politico has added a correction, pointing out that state officials have yet to formally call Missouri, so there remains a sliver of possibility that Barack Obama will be our next president.
