  • Just for fun: A video of Romney supporters, explaining how Obama is a terrorist sympathizer, a communist, Kenyan, Muslim, socialist who hates America ... oh, and how he's so divisive with all of his hateful speech.
  • Cory Booker outdoes Cory Booker:
    Newark Mayor Cory Booker took his constituent outreach a step further Thursday when he invited citizens left powerless by superstorm Sandy to stop by his house to recharge their batteries.

    “Please let any1 on Homestead know they can come 2 my house & use the spare apt on 1st floor 2 relax, get warm, charge up etc,” the Democratic mayor and President Barack Obama surrogate, tweeted.

    “There is someone at my house now…I’ve got space u can relax in, charge devices & even a working DVD player. Come by,” he said. [...]

    The group at Booker’s apartment appeared to expand throughout the day.
    “I’m having lunch delivered for the 12 or so of you hanging at my place,” he tweeted.

  • More of this:
    A Maryland priest bucked the Vatican — and his own archbishop — Sunday by telling his parishioners that he sees a future in which the Roman Catholic Church could recognize "the total, exclusive and permanent union of gay and lesbian couples as part of the sacrament of matrimony."
  • Vice President Joe Biden appeared on Thursday's "Late Night with David Letterman" and gave the Top 10 reasons to vote early. So read this, laugh, and then get out and vote:
    10. I'm not saying each early voter gets a free cheeseburger, but I'm not  saying they don't either.

    9. It's vastly more effective than voting late.

    8. You know who votes early? People with a backbone like a ramrod.

    7. At a less crowded polling center, there’s plenty of room to stretch out, linger and relax.

    6. If you vote early, you don’t have to pay taxes. I’m sorry – I’m being told that’s not accurate.

    5. Single and looking to mingle? Find that someone special in the early voting line.

    4. Of course, there's the open bar.

    3. Not exercising your right to vote is malarkey – it's literally malarkey.

    2. Early voters will receive a $5 million donation from Donald Trump.

    1. Honestly, don't you want this election over already?

  • Speaking of voting, The Onion has a handy-dandy election FAQ to answer all of your voting questions. My favorite:
    Where can I find out election results?

    Open your window. If you hear gunshots and the wails of starving babies, the other guy won.

  • Everybody is ready for election day:
    Thousands of lawyers from both presidential campaigns will enter polling places next Tuesday with one central goal: tracking their opponents and, if need be, initiating legal action. It will be a kind of Spy vs. Spy.

    The lawyers will note how poll workers behave, where voters are directed, if intimidation appears to be occurring, whether lines are long. And they will report up a chain of command where decisions over court action will be made at headquarters in Chicago and Boston.

  • Finally! Every lunatic conspiracy theory about President Obama in one nifty diagram.
  • Amy Klobuchar's secret life?

    Correction of the year:  NYT calls MN Sen. Amy Klobuchar "Amy Knoblauch" -- the ex-Twins 2B

  • Don't forget that you get an extra hour of sleep this Sunday—so set those clocks back one hour before you hit the sack on Saturday night (unless you're in Hawaii or most of Arizona).
  • Today's Kagro in the Morning show had a great extended segment today with Greg Dworkin & Tim Lange (aka Meteor Blades) on the air together for most of our first hour! We talked last minute polling, gut/narrative vs. data, more Nate Silver, the breakthrough Business Week "It's Global Warming, Stupid" cover, the October jobs numbers, and much more. Don't forget to vote for us as Best New Show in the Stitcher Awards! Vote 1x/day through Nov. 5!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
