Ugh, another correction is needed to my Election Contest results. (I feel like the AP in CT-GOV!) Current GOP House gain is 60, not 61. http://bit.ly/bCCKrw. Possible range is 60-70, not 61-71. This means standings — for now — are Kevin Curran 102, TheSplenda 100, Matthias Shapiro 100, John Cary 99, three tied at 97.

Due to technical issues and scheduling problems, I will probably need to scale back my election-night results & contest liveblogging plans somewhat. I’ll still be madly tweeting, no doubt, and I’ll put some sort of window on the blog for the live-tweeting and hopefully some sort of reader feedback, but it may not be a full-fledged “liveblog.” FYI.

Boise fans should root for N.C. State tonight. #16 Florida State (6-1) is a sneaky threat to leapfrog Boise at the last minute if ‘07-style chaos descends, almost everyone has 2 losses, but Seminoles have 1 loss (to Oklahoma) and their final win, in ACC title game, is over *Virginia Tech*. Voters looking for an excuse to bump Boise would pick FSU.
“The early voting data this year could be consistent with anything from a massive, Gallup-style Republican wave to the first sign of a major Democratic comeback.” http://bit.ly/cCCSMy. Well, I’m glad that’s settled! Bonus: a reference to “Schrödinger’s apple.”
