    ...and Obama already has 2 votes. Mine and my wife's.

    The polling place was PACKED all day long, mostly with old white folks. I can't say if they were voting to keep their Social Security (Obama) or voting their fear of the President (Romney), but they're really turning out.

    The last time Texas went blue was in 1976. And we all know how that turned out.

    I think there's going to be some big surprises in some of the down ballot candidates. I predict a record turnout for Hispanics.

    I expect every Obama vote will be cancelled out by some troglodyte in Texas.

    After all, in a state where education spending consistently ranks near the very bottom, you can't expect an informed public, can you?

    We must have more than enough informed voters, Texas is red state and it looks like it'll stay that way.
