Red Nation

I know we’re not supposed to crow prematurely, but I couldn’t repress a

thrill of pleasure on seeing the red-blue election map on page 8 of today’s

New York Post (America’s Newspaper of Record). I can’t raise it on the web

site, but it looks WONDERFUL — a sea of red with some blue patches in the

corners. Bottom line: with 270 electoral-college votes needed to win, W is

currently looking at a pretty secure 264, Kerry at 196, with 78 up for

grabs. Kerry will need to win ALL the up-for-grabs states to win. All

right, all right, a lot of things can happen in 39 days, but carpe diem –

I’m happy this morning.
