[quote]KOGELO, Kenya — At President Barack Obama's ancestral village in Kenya, witch doctor John Dimo tossed some shells, bones and other items to determine who will win Tuesday's election. After throwing the objects like so many dice outside his hut in Kogelo village, Dimo, who says he is 105 years old, points to a white shell and declares: "Obama is very far ahead and is definitely going to win."
I believe "John Dimo" is Swahili for "Nate Silver."
"...Dimo, who says he is 105 years old, points to a white shell and declares: "Obama is very far ahead and is definitely going to win."
In the campaign we tried a white shell game that involved an African too, and it's led to the same conclusion.
You don't even want to know what the snacks are at his election night party.
R1 R2 Geez, can't anyone take a joke? Not everything has to be partisan. I'm NOT a Freeper; have always voted Democratic and LOVE Nate Silver. Don't take everything so seriously.
No way is he 105.
Seriously, he's better at this than most right-wing pundits who are all spouting their fake Republican enthusiasm tonight.
R13 He's had work done. By the witch plastic surgeon.
R15, how do you suppose a plastic surgeon does work over there?
Make fun all you want. The interesting part of the prediction is not that Obama will win, but that he is "very far ahead". I will not breathe easily until it is called and Romney has conceded, but I think folks are going to be shocked at how "big" the win could be. YES!!
Well, I laughed.
As a devout lefty, however, I sincerely wonder why the AP felt no need to file a report from the Mexican Mormon community where Mitt Romney was born. Especially considering just how far up GW Bush's butthole the AP was throughout his administration.
Oh please, Dimo is in the tank for Obama. Everybody knows that the people from Kogelo are very anti gun, so of course they'll lean Democrat.
But they are also very pro spear, a strange contradiction.
R17 Wonkette has a story about Jim Cramer predicting Obama 440-Romney 98. That seems a little much for even the most optimistic Democrat!
