“The writer persona is me going into town for a lunch or into [American City] for a meeting or going to a friend’s house for dinner. Or me when I’m most myself, doing something creative, having a look that says, confidence, creativity but still very much who I am.”

I was in VA this weekend, Ging O the V, in a county that ended up going 55-43 for Romney. But of the 20k that voted for Obama, I guarantee 70-80% of them had someone knock on their door to remind them where to vote or provide a ride to the polling place. The level of organization that the Obama campaign was, honestly, shocking to me. There were 100s of us, white, black, old, young, knocking on houses that had been microtargeted for their soft support or undecidedness. And even though, I wasn’t thrilled with everything he’s done, I was inspired to see so many people of different stripes working their ass off.

And it payed off! I couldn’t be happier. Science won in so many places–in some ways I’m happier for Nate Silver than Obama–and we’re moving towards a more equal society re. marriage. Definitely celebrating today

We’re number one! We’re number one!

I’ve been buoyed by having the least number of points scored against me. But I’m number one in points so boomBOOMboom.

200k without power in DC. Lots of downed trees, some flooding in the area, but we’re mostly fine! Fun fact, I watched the news the whole day yesterday, and counted the political ads: 126. I almost threw my TV out of the window, but thought better of it.

Today, I thought seriously about pursuing a completely different career and struggled (and failed) to find a pumpkin mask for my halloween costume (the pumpkin dance guy). Other than that, feeling pretty good, and enjoying reading all these recaps.

hotspur, Boss is my favorite book of all time. You have no idea how happy I am that you are reading it. I love the chapter where Royko gives the seminal description of a neighborhood.

I’m in the middle of Virginia for the next few days and have had little internet access. I tried to go to vgum to see what I missed and I just saw a dude hitting a bar with his pipe wang. So nothing has changed?

I would encourage you to not vote for Jill Stein, because if Obama loses in the same way Gore did (via Nader) I will be denied healthcare. thanks!

I’ve also heard a couple of my friends able to quit using the ecigarette. It’s too bad they’re not marketed towards helping people quit, instead of helping people smoke when they can’t smoke in public places. I guess not surprising here because blu is owned by a cigarette company.

Thanks pcbowen. And I always appreciate your contributions to threads! Very well thought out and rational.

Here is a good article on the notion that Obama has not expanded eligibility for Medicaid from an albeit partisan dude Ezra Klein. Still presents the facts well: http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/ezra-klein/post/gingrich-says-obama-is-the-food-stamp-president-is-he/2012/01/18/gIQA1Ino8P_blog.html

As far as the “lies” I was referring to: Romney said half of the green companies the government invested in have gone out of business. Only three have. The others have created some jobs, and a lot of good research base. Whether the private sector could have done better is up to debate, still a lie!

The other one I mentioned are preexisting conditions. Romney said preexisting conditions are covered under his plan. This one is more difficult because he hasn’t specified, but from what his advisers have said, under his plan, people who are continuously insured (and lose coverage) can not be discriminated against. People who are now uninsured can be discriminated against.

As far as the cuts to Medicare, it’s important to distinguish between regular Medicare and Medicare Advantage. I think 80% of seniors have regular Medicare. The cuts came to Medicare Advantage, and yes they are cuts. I’m not debating that and I don’t think it’s a lie. But the administration made the determination that the cuts will not lower benefits, and not have a dramatic effect on care. This is certainly up for debate, and Romney brought it to the forefront. Certainly something needs to be done about Medicare, and I look forward to hearing more from both candidates.

Again, both sides have issues. I think the demonizing of Bain Capital and Tax returns is pretty useless on the left, and the demonizing of immigrants and other stigmatized groups is pretty useless on the right, but I appreciate having a thoughtful chat about it with reasonable people!
