You can't separate politics from technology. Didn't you realize that politics use twitter, facebook, ads on your computer, modern technology to count votes, and that technology influences political issues? And don't even get me started on modern warfare and military weapons. You guys really should pay attention more.
Guys. This thread, like nearly every other thread on the main page, blows. It's not just infighting, but it's infighting between a bunch of BBS members that my old ass doesn't give a damn about. I know the election is annoying and everyone's sick of it, but can we please turn this into some semblance of a discussion about the election?
So, Obama will probably win. If he doesn't win Florida, he needs to either win Ohio or else win every battleground state but Ohio.
I can't stand how CNN keeps talking about "Miami-Dade County" as though it were a politically significant entity. Counties don't carry electoral votes. It's a huge county with lots of uncounted votes, and they're giving us no information on where within the county those votes are located. That's kind of a big deal since Miami-Dade is a huge-ass county with both major liberal (inner-city Miami) and conservative (Hialeah) strongholds within it.
Also, why does everyone always act all elitist about CNN's coverage of the election? Why is it so horrible that they use holograms and technology? I don't necessarily like everyone on their election team, and the aforementioned issue about Florida coverage is annoying, but on the whole I think they do an excellent job. It's not their fault that they just make people recognize how fucked up the electoral college is.
