North Carolina will go for McCain

This is not the first time I've predicted Sen. John McCain will carry North Carolina.

Right after the Republican convention, I said McCaim would carry the state by at least 10%.

That's not likely now.

NC is a "battleground state;" and with voting about to end in a few hours, some polling organizations are calling the state for McCain while some are calling it for Sen. Obama .

But all are calling it close.

McCain failed to do in NC two things that would have given him this state handily: 1) call out Obama for his almost 20 year close relationship with the racist, anti-American Jeremiah Wright; and 2) make sure everyone here knew Obama was a liberal and what that meant.

Look tomorrow for a major post on those two matters.

Now my final call: McCain will carry the state by at least 4%.

Well, John, we were both way off in our forecasts. Come January 20, we will have a new president and a much more Democrat (I can't describe them as democratic)congress. It remains to be seen if the new president is up to the job.
I suppose it's unrealistic to hope this will stop the whining about how Blacks don't have a chance in this racist country. We'll keep seeing set-asides and race-based special treatment for minorities despite very clear evidence that whatever racism there is in our country, it doesn't stop a mixed White-Black- Arab from winning the highest office in the land. Ho hum.

Don't let it bother you too much that you were wrong again. I think you may have just misjudged how much the people of NC really care about Ayers, Wright, and ACORN. It seems that the McCain campaign made a similar mistake, and not just in NC. Silly little things like the economy and the War in Iraq were more important to voters this time around.

Of course, I am certain it was a media consortium of conspirators that tried their best to steer people away from the really important issues that you have focused so many of your posts on. Oh well.

Anon @ 10:39,

I join you in hoping you're wrong and thank you for your comment.

To TH,

I do hope Obama's victory stops at least some of the whining, but I doubt it will.

One reason: The whining to too important to the maintainance of some of the special advantages blacks have because of their race.

Example: preference in college admissions.

To Anon @ 8;45,

Can we agree what you say is revealing of the kind of person you are?

I plan to use part or, perhaps, all of your comment in the next day or so on the main page.
