luvs special elections. Get rid of any computer type countng machines and bring in the 1960's fill in the circle paper ballots are great expense. Let's bankrupt Ohio.

Wait until you have to fill in 50 circles this fall, lines will be out the wazoo.

I don't know whether to be happy or sad that Congress may not be called back into session this year with all of the problems facing this country.

Hear, Hear...

They're saying Obama's aggregate polls took a hit after he nominated Biden. I don't think I've ever seen that happen before.

The country is in a real mess.

Gallup Daily: No Bounce for Obama in Post-Biden Tracking

McCain creeps ahead, 46% to 44%USA Election 2008 Gallup Daily Americas Northern America

PRINCETON, NJ -- It's official: Barack Obama has received no bounce in voter support out of his selection of Sen. Joe Biden to be his vice presidential running mate.

Gallup Poll Daily tracking from Aug. 23-25, the first three-day period falling entirely after Obama's Saturday morning vice presidential announcement, shows 46% of national registered voters backing John McCain and 44% supporting Obama, not appreciably different from the previous week's standing for both candidates. This is the first time since Obama clinched the nomination in early June, though, that McCain has held any kind of advantage over Obama in Gallup Poll Daily tracking.

Congress will either do more damage if they are called back into session this year OR they will spend their time on silly PR crapola like making November "National Vegetable Month".

Maybe spending the remainder of the year outside the Beltway and inside their districts would be the very best thing that could happen. Probably cheaper for us, too.

Dammit. I thought he was cynical enough to choose Hillary as VP.

Che - You may be right. EVERY month is multiple "National Something-or-Other Month".
