Last weekend before election

The political rhetoric is heating up and this election can not be over fast enough for me. I cast my ballot last week and am glad to have done so -- now I can concentrate on the election coverage and results.

The Senate race in South Dakota is going to be a close one. Dachle v. Thune is a great blog to check out for information on that race.

Real Clear Politics has information on all of the recent polls. This site has both national polls and state polls and also provides averages of several polls.

24 Athletes have signed a letter endorsing President Bush. And these don't include the NASCAR drivers who have appeared and Republican rallys or Curt Schilling who endorsed President Bush on national television yesterday and who is appearing with the President in New Hampshire today.

So, don't forget to vote. But, please, only vote if you know something about the issues. Make sure you know why you are voting.

Campaigning in church

Why is it that the Democrats campaign in church? Not just show up for a church service, but preach from the pulpit. Why is it that those who argue for the separation of church and state do not get upset about this?

I thought that one of the complaints about President Bush is his support of faith based initiatves. It seems to me that actively campaigning during Sunday morning services is just as bad.

What he said.

I didn't watch the presidential debate last night -- partly because I already know who I am going to vote for and partly because I just couldn't stomach listening to 90 minutes of hearing the same things I've already heard.

I only wish I could express myself like James Lileks. Basically, I agree with what he said.
