Unreadability in the defense of liberalism is no vice  —  Ed Driscoll writes:  —  When the MSM moans about the gallons of red ink it's spilled since 2001, it needs to ask itself if it's prepared to actually report the news, in a fashion that interests readers, or if it exists as a non-profit ideological support system.

Palin Unleashes New Attack Against Obama On Coal
Paul Krugman / New York Times:
The Republican Rump  —  Maybe the polls are wrong, and John McCain is about to pull off the biggest election upset in American history.  But right now the Democrats seem poised both to win the White House and to greatly expand their majorities in both houses of Congress.

William Kristol / New York Times:
Hey Liberals, Don't Worry  —  Barack Obama will probably win the 2008 presidential election.  If he does, we conservatives will greet the news with our usual resolute stoicism or cheerful fatalism.  Being conservative means never being too surprised by disappointment.  —  But what if John McCain pulls off an upset?
Times of London:
How The Times followed a trail to find Barack Obama's aunt  —  The trail that led to “Aunt Zeituni”, the relative of Barack Obama who was traced by The Times last week, started with Mr Obama's memoir, one of the most widely read political autobiographies of all time.
Ben Smith / Ben Smith's Blogs:
Another robocall on Obama's aunt, Jeremiah Wright  —  The last-minute, under the radar issue some Republican groups are pushing this year appears to be the news that Obama's aunt is an illegal immigrant.  —  Stephen Medvic, a professor of government at Franklin & Marshall University in Lancaster …

What if Wright played a bigger role in campaign?  —  It was the dog that didn't bark — or at least did little more than whimper.  —  Even as the Pennsylvania GOP went on TV this weekend with a last-ditch ad reminding Keystone state voters of Barack Obama's former pastor …

Nadler Criticizes Obama's ‘Courage’  —  Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-NY, was down in Florida over the weekend, and one supposes that he thought he was helping Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., but it will ultimately be hard to make that case.  —  Pamela Geller at Atlas Shrugged has posted some video …

Obama is the Real Conservative  —  Romney's Game Plan for 2012 by Tucker Carlson  —  A speechwriter for Reagan and Nixon—who worked at the National Review for four decades—on why he's voting for Obama.  —  It may be something of a surprise that, as a long time conservative, I now support Barack Obama.
Nate Silver / FiveThirtyEight.com:
Today's Polls, 3 AM Edition (11/3)  —  Barack Obama's position has become somewhat stronger since our update this afternoon.  We now have him with a 5.8 point lead in the national popular vote, and winning the election 96.3 percent of the time.  Earlier today, those figures were 5.4 and 93.7, respectively.
Carol D. Leonnig / Washington Post:
Effectiveness of AIG's $143 Billion Rescue Questioned  —  A number of financial experts now fear that the federal government's $143 billion attempt to rescue troubled insurance giant American International Group may not work, and some argue that company shareholders and taxpayers would have been better served by a bankruptcy filing.
Rob Stein / Washington Post:
Study First to Link TV Sex To Real Teen Pregnancies  —  Teenagers who watch a lot of television featuring flirting, necking, discussion of sex and sex scenes are much more likely than their peers to get pregnant or get a partner pregnant, according to the first study to directly link steamy programming to teen pregnancy.

Ambrose Evans-Pritchard / Telegraph:
Revenge of the Left across the world  —  Whatever the exact result of the US elections tomorrow, we must assume that the whole governing machinery of Washington and the state capitols will soon be hostile to laissez-faire thinking.  —  It is not just that the Democrats will win a crushing victory …

Jonathan Martin / The Politico:
Davis: Holdouts could tilt election  —  MIAMI - A high-spirited Rick Davis late Sunday night made perhaps his final case for John McCain, arguing that the unusual number of still-remaining undecided voters could tip the election to the GOP and that whether those holdouts ultimately vote could prove decisive.
Peter Beinart / Washington Post:
Last of the Culture Warriors  —  Why has America turned on Sarah Palin?  Obviously, her wobbly television interviews haven't helped.  Nor have the drip, drip of scandals from Alaska, which have tarnished her reformist image.  But Palin's problems run deeper, and they say something fundamental about the political age being born.
John Dickerson / Slate:
His loss would be disastrous for the media and political establishment.  —  CLEVELAND—If Barack Obama wins the election, it will be historic.  And if he loses, it will be pretty historic, too: It would mark the biggest collective error in the history of the media and political establishment.
