The Official Congrats to Red Dog for betting Bush thread.

OK....It's not over, but what do you plan to do with the money (thousands, perhaps millions ) that you won for betting on Bush?

The question is when will I get paid.


I hope this demonstrates to folks that you can take your polls and shove them where the sun don't shine. A little knowledge of electoral college history is where to go.

Assuming that Bush is at 286, I came pretty close in my EV prediction of 291. Only 2 states I got wrong were NV (had Kerry) and WI (had Bush). Ironically, I let the polls effect me on those.

Red Dog,

Were you a little worried yesterday when those Florida & Ohio exit poll numbers were announced?

Heck, I was concerned about VA. Another reason why I think the only useful poll is a stripper's pole.

I know what he's going to do with the money. Donate it to the local parks. The kids can swing on the Comemorative Jungle Gym. Keep the government out of the town parks.

I didn't think much about the exit polls yesterday, because I thought I knew where they were coming from.

I became somewhat convinced that Bush was in trouble when I saw his demeanor on Air Force 1. Apparently the Bush campaign took those exit polls seriously and thought they were in trouble also. At least this is what Noral O'Donnell & Andrea Mitchell said.

Wow, that's pretty good! Be sure to give me your predictions when I place my bet for 2008.
