I'm glad you confirmed that about Simon because I had a notion that he was far from a liberal pundit but didn't remember for sure.

The winger echo chamber is getting weirder and weirder. Imagine what Wednesday will look like if/when they lose. I can imagine the level of insanity reaching new highs.

And Obama is even or ahead in the national polls, with the state firewalls looking good too.

News Alert
from The Wall Street Journal

President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney enter the final sprint before Election Day essentially deadlocked nationally in what looks set to be one of the closest presidential elections in U.S. history.

A new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll of likely voters finds Mr. Obama leading his rival by 48% to 47% as the two men crisscross the country to rally supporters in the states most likely to decide the outcome.

What is surprising and comforting about that piece is that Roger Simon wrote it. Simon is part of the RW.

Sam, if you are talking about the Roger Simon who writes for Politico, I think it's a bit more nuanced. My impression is that, at least in the last couple of years, he's leaned right but not gone over the cliff. I found him worth reading but always with a pinch of salt.

Perhaps you are thinking of some other Roger Simon?
