Holy Fucking Shit Batman! The AZ Reprise


Dos mas. DOS FUCKING MAS!!

The two most recent polls show that Senator Obama has cut into John McCain’s once seemingly insurmountable lead in…. his home state of Arizona. Long considered a given for John McCain, Arizona’s ten electoral votes are an absolutely necessary component of his path to 270. Perhaps more important than those ten electoral votes themselves is what a tight race in Arizona foretells: If Arizona winds up being a 1 or 2 point race on election night, that likely means that Obama has already taken Colorado, New Mexico, and Nevada.

The latest polls, released today, suggest that McCain maintains a slight lead:

Project New West: McCain 44; Obama 40
Zimmerman & Associates: McCain 44; Obama 42

This is how fucking lame McCain is – he’s lost the state he represents. He should have carried Arizona with double-digits. He wasn’t all that unpopular in the state when I was there – virtual fucking love fest, in fact, despite the occasional rumbling about his temper and his shoddy Republicon ways.

The fact that Obama is withing striking distance is phenomenal.
