I just talked to one of my best Team McCain sources who told me that heading into today all the key battleground polls were moving hard and fast in their direction. The source, hardly a perma-optimist, thinks it will be a long night, but that McCain is going to win. So add this with the new Battleground poll (Obama +1.9 only) and the rising stock market..
Oh, wait …
What’s amazing is that the Red team does this year after year, and people keep getting fooled by it.

And there will be no professional repercussions for Toby Harnden when the bogositude is revealed tomorrow evening.
Second update And here’s the retraction. It’s surprising but true that Red team supporters don’t seem to get tired of being lied to by their own side.
