    from the mainstream media, if you can believe it.  KOMO 4 (Seattle TV station) just had a segment on these newest numbers and their implication that across the state Patty seems to have done better in the very late voting (i.e. those votes just now being received & counted) than she did in the earlier, bulk of the voting.  The station's political analyst suggested this was due to all the big names who stumped with Patty in the final days -- Barack, Michelle, Joe B, and the Big Dog.  But more interestingly, he also claimed that all this succeeded in communicating (correctly) that Patty was in serious danger of losing and thereby motivated more "weak Dems" to mail in the frickin' ballot already.  He even had some anecdata to back up these claims.

    What say you, fellow Seattleites -- credible?  I think I might just buy it.

      From a quick review, I don't think I've seen a single county in which Patty did worse in today's tally than her cumulative percentage through yesterday.

      Patty's rockin' and rollin' today.

        I think Murray ran some nice positive ads towards the end of her campaign. She focused on her support of veterans (and the support veterans have for her) as well as all of the big newspaper endorsements. I think towards the end of the campaign most independents are sick of the negative ads and want to hear something positive about the people running. Murray had it, Rossi didn't.

      I went to the Michelle Obama thing in Bellevue.  They REALLY stressed how much Patty was behind and you could just feel people in the room get WAY more motivated to pull out all the stops.  And each of those people influenced a bunch of others when they left, you can be sure.  And Patty's team did a great job of getting the message out.  They constantly told us that they were behind and it was all too believable.

      They have created a world where everything is an opinion, and nothing is a fact, everybody is entitled to an opinion, and every opinion is equally valid.
