    I'll bet you a year-long USMB ban that The Obama won't carry 332 or more EV.
    Any takers?

    obama is going to run out of money in the middle of October and Romney will be running virtually unopposed.

    Obama still has the media working on his campaign for free. And He is the President so he can generate his own publicity.

    I dont think he will get over 200 EV. But Im not a gambler. I dont believe in gambling.

    332? That's tough. Why won't you bet even odds? You don't seem very confident in your guy at all, if you're demanding that many points.

    I can never understand this sort of bet.

    Why would I care if you self-ban for a year? How is that a "prize" for me?

    Or, for that matter, why would you care if a "liberal" self-banned? How is that a "prize" for you?

    I do like how he's hoping Romney doesn't lose by more than 62 electoral votes.

    It is sort of a sad commentary on the expectations republicans really have for their candidate this fall.

    That depends on who takes the bet.

    I mean, really – if RDean, Mr. Shaman or TM actually self-ban are you going to complain?

    What about sniper, or rabbi?

    One can only hope
    :D
