Thanks for the update, DoT. Do tell the family there is a very large contingent of internet friends praying.

Speaking of poop. As students walked through the main thoroughfare at San Diego State University on Tuesday they were greeted by students with their pants down sitting atop a row of toilets. Such an appearance in the middle of a college quad is sure to raise questions, and that was the hope of the Transgender Action Advocacy Student Coalition with their “Shit In” protest. Five toilets – sometimes adorned with students – set along Campanille Walkway had newspapers with the words “Gender Neutral Bathrooms Now” written in bold letters. Students were encouraged to sit on a toilet and take selfies with the hashtag #SDSUShitIn. San Diego is home to some real loons.

CH: Obsessing over polls is no way to spend a useful life. Thank you Mr. Life Coach! But I need your advice/opinion on watching ballot returns.

FTSAH: I've tried to caution about NC early voting. The absentee vote has been coming back less R than in 2010. That's neither surprising nor DOOM! because the meh-but-unobjectionable Republican Richard Burr won easily in 2010 (his 55% was the highest any NC Senator has received in a direct election). But there's nothing in the vote so far to get all cheery about for Tillis. But we've now had (only!) one day of early in-person voting, and that number is . . . drum roll please . . . DEM 60,049 | 50.8% REP 34,763 | 29.4% UNA 23,243 | 19.7% LIB 162 | 0.1% But what was the 2010 early in-person voting after one day, asked no one... DEM 16,000 | 44.5% REP 13,747 | 38.3% UNA 6,146 | 17.1% LIB 36 | 0.1% Still too early to go Full DOOM!, but a little DOOM! should be allowed to help motivate the less than fully motivated. It's going to be an uphill slog.

I'm split on whether you meant that as a strike.

If you refresh without checking for new threads, you'll never win the First! contest. It's not a contest, really, it's an experiment in vanity.

I'm in NC, Miss Marple. She meant me.
I'm so glad you're a JOMer Miss Marple. You're my favorite.
Or did somebody's toilet have a lot of gas?
Oh boy! mrs hit and run's parents are coming in on a late flight tonight.... TCFAB!³
jimmyk: Walton was the judge in the Libby case, right? A Bush appointee, for what it's worth. Walton? Come on, the Series is on, let's call him Mr. October. Oh, there's a classmate of his among us, but I assume everyone knows that.
lyle: OK, the link from last thread that I prefaced with the bit about getting physically ill? If that one doesn't get to you, this one surely will You could probably use some help with your marketing skills. For example, you could probably package the same link as: "One weird trick to lose weight!" and increase your click-through rate ten-fold.
BTW - got a call at work today, an auto-call from the GOP urging me to early vote. They made a good pitch. "And if you vote early, you will be taken off the phone list for future election related calls." I'm sold.
lyle: Good Lord, how old is he, Beasts? ;) That threw me off for a second. I've always imagined that question using the female pronoun when addressed to Beasts.
The Corner: Michelle Obama made another gaffe stumping for a Democratic candidate on Thursday, appearing to confuse the family history of Colorado’s Mark Udall with that of his Republican opponent. “As a fifth-generation Coloradan, Mark understands what makes this state special,” the first lady said from Denver on Thursday. Except Udall isn’t from Colorado: He is the son of former longtime Arizona congressman Mo Udall. Mark was born in Tucson, Ariz., and moved to Colorado after he graduated from college. On the other hand, Udall’s opponent, Republican Cory Gardner, comes from a long line of Coloradans. According to Gardner’s website, his roots in the Centennial State go back to 1886. Don't blame Michelle, I think she was exposed to some second-hand brownies.
OL: Early in January, Robert visits an in-network doctor to get a wart removed from his foot. I already know the answer without reading further. The trains will pass each other 3 miles west of Des Moines at 6:37 PM. I was always a whiz at math story problems.
The Civitas poll follows their last one (9/25-9/28)that had Hagan up 7. So moving to tied is quite some movement. Hopefully the previous one was more outlier than this -- it's one of only two polls in which Hagan got to 50 in Sep/Oct. And to get there, Civitas included leaners, which was 7% of her support (Tillis was only picking up 1% in leaners). Lean forward back That poll, plus a NBC/Marist poll (9/27-10/1) is the only one outside the MoE. But the NBC poll was Hagan +4 with a MoE of 3.8
