No doorways, no windows, no walls
No shelter here on the ground
No standing and no safe place to fall
Just the promise of this distant sound
Bells are ringing all over the world

Linkee-poo twofer for Election Day

Thought I would get rid of these political links before they got too stale tomorrow. Also, I'm reserving the right to update these as the night progresses. I promise it'll only be politics and election links. Everything else is getting saved for tomorrow. There's still a lot of back reading I need to get through. Plus, you know, like real work.

You know how Fox News likes to talk about how fair and balanced they are, you know, in comparison to other networks. Well, here's how much they covered Romney compared to Obama. Also shown is CNN's and MSNBC's coverage numbers. (Grokked from Jay Lake)

The Huffington Post live blog of the election. I wonder how many of the voter suppression stories will survive in the light of scrutiny? Unfortunately probably way too many. Also note, some of the "live blog" posts are old stories. (Grokked from Phiala)

I first saw this video posted by Phiala and thought, "Hmm, that's interesting. But I'll bet that first commentator was right that the calibration was off." And then Joe Hill posted an update with more of the story (including the video). And now you know why both campaigns had already lined up lawyers before election day.

Well, here's another reason why may Romney lose. The 68% of registered Republican voters who believe in demonic possession will say in the Church Lady voice, "Satan?" (Grokked from Jay Lake)

Of course, there's also this reason why Obama may lose (Ohio). "The suit alleges that the secretary of state's office used a legal loophole to install software on electronic voting systems in 39 counties across the state without having it checked by the Ohio Board of Voting Machine Examiners, the state's technical board charged with reviewing elections software. " Seriously, John Husted, I'm about to call "malfeasance." That's a firing offense, BTW. (Pointed to by John)
