Will Senator Barack Obama win the presidency like so many polls, formulas, and Ivy League-educated augurs predict? Will John McCain pull a stunner in Pennsylvania, Ohio, North Carolina, and many other states Howard Dean can name in 5.8 seconds? Will Ralph Nader jump onto the stage, tie both candidates to each other with seat belts, and steal electoral votes? And how many write-ins will we see for Rick Astley?
These are just a couple of the questions that will answer themselves on the eve of Election Day, and the heads at BC Magazine who enjoy the sound of their own typing will be bringing you coverage of all things TV, web, and anecdotal.
I will be joined by illustrious Blogcritics personalities, who are not limited to:
• Feisty proprietor of the BC-affiliated Glosslip.com and one-time let-me-crash-in-her-kids-bed hostess, Dawn Olsen
• BC's political editor who once spent 8 hours looking in a mirror because he couldn't stop trying to prove his reflection wrong, Dave Nalle
• BC assistant political editor and fully-licensed boat guy, Clavos
• Law talkin' fellow and BC's resident Panamaniac, Dan (Miller)
As a bonus, I am currently tucked neatly away in the prairies of Saskatchewan, so I can also throw you the Canadian perspective to the American election. (Cultural aside: it would just be easier to buy a t-shirt that says "No, I don't want gravy on my fries.")
State initiatives, tight congressional races, and of course, the contest for President of The United States Of The Part Of America Between The Atlantic Ocean And Somewhere In The Middle Of The Pacific Ocean. There will be links, live polls, and tons and tons of sassy, brassy, and informed biased opinions you won't find on the Huffington Post.
We are expecting even more of BC's glamorous level-headed community to participate in the live blog tonight, so please feel free to comment at the bottom as you normally do with other articles — without reason, regard, or revision. (We tried publishing comments in the live blog the first time, but it was just too impractical.)
Follow along, and be sure to set your watches to 7:30 p.m. EST, when the fun begins.
