it's a wonderful vice presidency

My favorite part of Tuesday's VP debate came when Edwards said that in the whole, vast configuration of things, Cheney was nothing but a scurvy little spider.

state electoral trends: KY, TN




Kentucky's really gone south the last few elections. Perhaps Tennessee would have too, if not for Gore being on the ballot. Neither of these two are in play this year, but it will be interesting to note the trendlines.

state electoral trends: AR, LA




Louisiana: interesting how closely it's cleaved to the national average since 1976, compared to prior volatility.

Arkansas: Jimmy Carter had a much bigger impact than Bill Clinton. Odd.

there's a holdup in the Bronx . . .

Here's a snapshot from the debate last night:



And I always thought Toody and Muldoon were partners. What happened?




And since I'm on the subject, I can't resist reposting this bit of dialogue from one of this classic show's episodes:
Muldoon: What are you going to be doing in New Jersey?
Toody: Well I promised Lucille that I'm going to take her to see her sister.
Muldoon: I thought her sister lived in Westchester.
Toody: She does, but I'm going to take her to see her sister in New Jersey.
Muldoon: But I thought Lucille only had one sister.
Toody: She has.
Muldoon: Than how can she have one in New Jersey and another one in Westchester?
Toody: Can't you figure it out?
