And They're Off...

Thought I'd put up a few election results links so you can follow the returns.

CNN Election Center 2008

Fox News America's Decision Interactive Map (for that fair and balanced coverage)

I was intending to put in a couple of those election map widgets from MSNBC and CBS but for some reason the damn code isn't working. You shouldn't be here looking at widgets anyway. Get the hell out and VOTE!

Here's one more for you that's pretty interesting. Intrade is an Irish internet "prediction market". Their predictions are reported as, well, odds. And their numbers are based on people who put money on who they think is going to win. That sorta sounds a little like gambling doesn't it? Anyway, several news outlets seem to think that these "prediction markets" are very accurate. Here's their map:

Also, in case you hadn't heard, several companies are offering rewards for voting. Starbucks is offering a free cup of coffee. Krispy Kreme is giving away a free star shaped donut with red, white and blue sprinkles. And if you're lucky enough to live near one of the adult themed Babeland stores you can get yourself free sex toys. So go vote then pick up some coffee and donuts and come home and play with your sex toys while you watch the election results.
Have a great day.

I can't vote ... they won't let me. What's a continent between friends? x

That's too bad Kitty. I think it has something to do with that little disagreement we had a couple of hundred years ago. Although you can't vote you can send some of that positive energy.
