    The game is afoot!

    I don't mean to start any political debates, but I've been staring at the polling data for about a week now, and I'm predicting a slim Romney win (279-259).

    Nope, but I will at some point. That first issue was too interesting to let go.

    Yah my prediction is that Obama will win the popular vote but Romney will win the electoral college votes. I wonder how that will work out.

    I agree - go vote!!

    That said, this is not a place for any sort of political discourse, arguments, or anything of the like. If you want to talk about these things in detail, there are threads on the community forum for that.

    I'd say the odds of that happening again are pretty slim, but it's certainly a possibility. Anything that can bring about election reform, I'm fine with.

    In non-election related news, I'm finally getting to dig into Pax Romana by Jonathan Hickman. My roommate, who is a very casual comic reader, mostly borrowing from me, asked me if I'd ever read it. I said "how do you know about Pax Romana?!?" For whatever reason, he's got a copy of it. And being at work at six this morning for no reason but to open the doors for voters (my work is a polling place today...fun) means that I've got a few hours to do nothing. Well, more nothing than I usually do at work.

    I'm only through the first issue, but holy crap. This is fascinating stuff. It's hard to believe that this is only his second comic; it's far from the safe kind of work that most people might do to get their start. It'll take a bit for me to get through the rest, because it's an extremely dense read, but I look forward to the rest of it.

    Obama's going to win. For the sheer reason that he's only done one term.

    That's hardly a reason for him to win.

    You can, however, debate which fast food Mexican restaurant is the best. But I defy anyone to tell me it's not Taco Bell.

    In Robbie's defense, unseating an incumbent is a rare event. Last time it happened was 20 years ago, and the time before that was 1980. Both were circumstances in which the incumbent was doomed from the start.

    If a Taco Bell ever opens up in my hometown, I'm dropping my diet and resigning myself to an early grave. I cannot resist those Doritos tacos.

    Not if you're from Texas. We've got plenty of them. Just one more reason why Texas is the greatest country in America.

    Yeah, but 20 years ago is only 5 elections. And only two of those were against incumbents. I think the overall rate is somewhere around 70%, which is high, but hardly a lock.

    Yes, pretty much, looking back at the past Presidents. I hear that in the US it's seen very much as a political failure for a Presidency to not last into its second term.
