“First, most pollsters are missing one ingredient- common sense. Here is my gut instinct. Not one American who voted for McCain 4 years ago will switch to Obama. Not one in all the land. But many millions of people who voted for an unknown Obama 4 years ago are angry, disillusioned, turned off, or scared about the future. Voters know Obama now- and that is a bad harbinger. […] Will anyone in America wake up on election day saying “I didn’t vote for Obama 4 years ago. But he’s done such a fantastic job, I can’t wait to vote for him today.” Does anyone feel that a vote for Obama makes their job more secure? Forget the polls. My gut instincts as a Vegas oddsmaker and common sense small businessman tell me this will be a historic landslide and a world-class repudiation of Obama’s radical and risky socialist agenda. It's Reagan-Carter all over again. But I’ll give Obama credit for one thing- he is living proof that familiarity breeds contempt.”

Yeah, yeah, I know what your thinking: "What common sense?"

I remember that hippie anthem, "Where Have All the Flowers Gone?", and I sometimes use that melody to hum, "Where has all the common-sense gone?". I think both the flowers and the common sense have been eaten by the hippies themselves. And now they are eating our once-great Nation's future.

Nevertheless, I cling, not to my bibles and my guns (of which latter I have none), but to the one thing I have retained from the Obamanation Administration: hope for change.

Though our electorate as a group seems to behave as junior-high-schoolers voting for their most popular kid for class president, I cling to the hope that, once in the privacy of the voting booth, enough of them will allow themselves to admit that they made a terrible mistake in 2008.

It could happen.
