Thinking About Bill  —  As I listened to Sarah Palin's recent phone call with “Nikolas Sarkozy,” I couldn't help thinking about Bill Kristol.  —  I think about Bill Kristol far too much.  I almost never used to.  Before he began writing his Monday column in the New York Times, I rarely saw him on television.

The Latest From Inside McCain HQ  —  I just talked to one of my best Team McCain sources who told me that heading into today all the key battleground polls were moving hard and fast in their direction.  The source, hardly a perma-optimist, thinks it will be a long night, but that McCain is going to win.

Toast  —  I've checked my email, and I have over a hundred new messages.  And I can't get to anything resorting to ‘Sean Malstrom’ due to real life situations.  Luckily I changed my career gears long ago.  But my old profession of political analysis is going to be absolutely destroyed.

Myglesias / Matthew Yglesias:
Good Riddance  —  Today being the day America chooses a successor, it's worth reflecting for a moment on the abysmal leader we have right now.  I think an issue like asking whether or not George W. Bush is the worst president we've ever had gets a little too imponderable considering the historical issues.

Myglesias / Matthew Yglesias:
The Difference-Makers  —  I've been a little bit surprised by the number of liberals who've been eager to proclaim John McCain's 2008 campaign to be the most vile and dishonorable thing they've ever witnessed.  It struck me as less vile and dishonorable than the other presidential campaigns (2004, 2000, 1996) that I remember.
