Don't forget to roll your clocks back on Sunday, making this final weekend push for the campaigns that much longer on all of us. I don't know about all of you (since I'm in Iowa), but I am definitely looking forward to the days of not having a mailbox filled with campaign flyers, minimal campagin e-mail spam, a voicemail box void of robo-calls and the daily arguments amongst my staff about who'd be the worst choice for president.
I'm ready for the longest 4 days in the 2012 election to be over already. Do we really need to make it worse by adding an extra hour to it?
We're almost certain to see plenty of last ditch attempts of campaign-killing low blows from both sides.... so why waste any more time?
As the campaigns prepare their final wimpy punches going into the weekend, it sould be an interesting final 4 days, for both the campaigns and the media. In fact, we may actually see major networks cover the Benghazi fiasco this Sunday, as it is now being reported on by other major networks besides Fox.
Even the Red Cross mid-Hurricane Sandy clean-up is being politicized. One one end you have Mitt Romney using the case for charity as a backdrop for his campaign. On the other end you see MSNBC going nuts over Romney's promoting of the Red Cross "pretty offensive", even attacking the Red Cross for their efforts:
Andrea Mitchell adds:
On top of that we see an excellent opportunity for Obama to show us how he can "cut through the red tape" with Hurricane Sandy efforts ... but I don't think he'll want to go there. Not BEFORE an election.
That aside, Sandy's destruction is impressive, even considering the storm's power wasn't nearly as bad as it could have been. Some of the photos have me dropping my jaw. There's photos up all over the place. Definitely check some of them out.
You know what else had me drop my jaw? All the fake photos of Sandy, leading people like CNN host Torre to actually think some of them were real (nice job, genius):
I'd boycott by not watching the NY Marathon, however I never watch the NY Marathon, or any marathon for that matter. I'm just not that desperate for entertainment.
Have yourselves a great weekend everybody...
Get rested up for a long night Tuesday...
Post whatever you want to...
Thread is officially Open.
OH, and p.s...
I'll be working for Ace of Spades this Tuesday for election coverage. Make note of this webpage for future reference. You can follow me on Twitter where I'll be posting throughout the day (and probably late into the night) from my Twitter account and AoSHQ Decision Desk account for Iowa. I'll update you with hashtags and more this Tuesday. Iowa could play a very important role in the outcome this year.
