official last political post for a while

06 Nov

The New York Times has an awesome map where you can click on each state and county and see how McCain and Obama did.   Good way to waste an afternoon.

That’s how I learned that McCain only won Fresno county in California by 26 votes.  26 votes.  I mean, Obama won California pretty handily, but…. 26 freaking votes.

    You learn disturbing things with this map!! Like the fact that I thought Sarasota county had gone for Obama…MSNBC’s map on election night seemed to show our county as blue….but this map says Sarasota county went for McCain….but only by 237 votes.

    I guess I’ve got 237 people to kick in the knee. I know it doesn’t matter in the long run, since it’s all decided now, but i have to say to my fellow 237 Sarasotans….REALLY PEOPLE?!!!?!!?!
