Well, this is a relief. After weeks and weeks of different polling firms compiling mountains of data showing Obama with consistent leads in swing states, finally, on the eve of the election, everything turned around and now Romney is the clear favorite to win everything.
And not a minute too soon, am I right?

This morning, Commonwealth Court Judge Robert Simpson blocked the Pennsylvania's Republican-sponsored voter ID law from going into effect during this election. It's a victory for the Obama campaign, voting rights groups, and according to the sponsor of the strict photo ID law Rep. Daryl Metcalfe, a victory for the shiftless horde…
Rather than making a ruling based on the constitution and the law, this judicial activist decision is skewed in favor of the lazy who refuse to exercise the necessary work ethic to meet the commonsense requirements to obtain an acceptable photo ID.
I guess people dealing with "long lines and ill-informed clerks at driver's license centers and identification requirements that made it hard for some registered voters to get a state-issued photo ID" are lazy.
But are they as lazy as people who want to win an election based on depressing minority participation rather than convincing a majority of people to vote for them?

Congressional candidate Gene Stilp travels around with a giant inflatable pink pig called Pignelope to represent the government corruption and waste. What, do you have a better idea? You definitely do not. There's a pig, and there's a guy next to it, and he's going to do something about that pig. Boom. I'm not sure what trouble you're having with this. Prop yourself up, America.

Yesterday, CNBC's official Dick Vitale impersonator Jim Cramer tweeted that his father, a World War II veteran, would lose the ability to vote under Pennsylvania's recently-upheld voter ID law because he "does not drive, he is elderly, and can't prove his citizenship."
Not to worry. If you're the dad of a cable television show host with 500,000 Twitter followers and having trouble meeting new ID requirements, the state of Pennsylvania is ON IT...
Less than seven hours later, the "Mad Money" host tweeted that authorities with Pennsylvania's transportation office "came directly to the rescue" of his father…Jan McKnight of the Pennsylvania Department of Transporation told TPM that a fellow staffer alerted her to Cramer's tweet with an email. McKnight was then able to contact Cramer's publicist. The publicist gave Cramer's family a phone number for McKnight.
So remember, if you're one of the 750,000 Pennsylvanians who lack adequate state-issued ID, all you need is a close relative who makes a living playing zany sound effects on television and you're golden.
