See, I told you so time.

I’ve been saying that the polls were crap and Romney was going to win for about four months now. My friends kept getting all despondant and bummed out, and I’d just tell them that that was what the media wanted them to feel. The narrative wanted conservatives to forget the Tea Party movement ever started, forget the 2010 midterms, forget the Wisconsin recall, hell, forget the Chick-Fil-A debacle boycott turned biggest fast food sales day ever.

So how come now Romney went from being 70 electoral votes behind to winning this week? Surely Joe Biden can’t suck that badly? (well, yes, he does, but this is bigger even than the magnificent Biden):

Well, look at that… Now that they aren’t sampling as if democrats are going to turn out in even far greater numbers than 2008, and they are finally truing up the poll numbers so they don’t completely embarrass themselves, Romney is crushing Obama.

Oh, and for the last debate, performances were about tied, but Romney wins every poll about every issue. This is only because Obama’s entire campaign has been based on how Romney is an evil rich white guy who kills puppies and wants women and minorities and old people to die in the streets, and then when the undecideds see a fairly mushy moderate well spoken non-psychopath instead, the cognitive dissonance shoves them over to the Romney side. See, Americans really don’t like being lied to…

And speaking of lying, during the debate Obama lied about the federal oil leases and his energy policy,

Obama and Candy Crowley both lied about Benghazi (yes, he used the word terror, but not in context, and then lied for the next two weeks straight), and even Candy admitted right afterwards that she was wrong (damn you context! DAMN YOUuuuuu!)

and the most hilarious one of all, Obama has a bigger pension than Romney.

Followed up this morning by the revelation about the total con job pulled on America. Remember a couple of weeks back when right after Obama got his ass handed to him during the first debate, the bestest most greatest awesome news ever came in about how super awesome the new unemployment numbers were and we’d finally squeeked under a lousy 8 percent?

At the time I called BS. I was an auditor for too long. All auditors have what is called the Smell Test. If it smells funny, it probably is, and this really smelled funny. At the time many of my left leaning readers told me I was full of it and that these stats were like totally awesome and legit and why can’t you just be happy for America? Racist.


The numbers were garbage. They’d clearly been manipulated for propaganda purposes.

Now that Romney has the momentum and the cracks are showing in Campaign O, I’m fully expecting them to go Full Biden until the finish. It wouldn’t surprise me if there was a military strike into Libya sometime between now and the foreign policy debate next week, you know, to bring somebody to justice or something.

I said the following here in January 2009:

I said it almost two years ago. Barack Obama is the Boy Band of Politics. No substance, no real talent, no experience, but media manufactured into a phenomenon. Like all Boy Bands, he’ll lose his luster eventually.

What we are seeing currently is what happens to all boy bands. Eventually enough people realize that they lack talent and they actually kind of suck. The media will still push them, but then the cracks will start to show. More and more people will see past the glossy media hullabaloo to discover that the boy band is just meh. Then it is inevitable. Once it becomes cool to hate the boy band, their career is over, and they will fade away into obscurity.

See? Told you so.


MHI Kickstarter Update: MHI DICE

Okay guys, as of today we are 126% funded at $57,099 with 14 days remaining to spread the word.

It looks like we will be hitting our $60,000 stretch goal here in the next couple of days, so what better way to celebrate than with MHI Logo dice. Here is the update from Steve Long:

We’re getting close to the $60,000 stretch goal, so we thought it was time to provide a few details on the dice we’re planning to offer. Everything he says is totally true, and you should never play any sort of game against Horace.

–these will be six-sided dice (d6, as we say in the gaming industry — the same sort you use to play craps or Monopoly). The HERO System uses three d6 for Skill Rolls and Attack Rolls, and more dice to determine damage. In the MHI RPG, for most players six d6 will be enough in most situations; gamemasters may want 12 or more.

–the dice will be 16mm (for maximum stopping power!) and will feature the MHI “happy demon face” for the 1.

–we haven’t decided on the color of the dice yet (we’re waiting on some info from the manufacturer), but we’ll let you know when we do. Ideally we’d like them to be a color that’s appropriate for MHI (such as olive green), but we are more concerned that they’re easy to read at the gaming table.

–every backer at the $250 and higher reward tiers gets six MHI dice for free.

–backers (US or international) at the $60 reward tier or any higher tier can add 6 dice for $10, 12 dice for $15, or an ammo pouch of 36 dice for $50. (The ammo pouch won’t have the MHI logo on it or anything like that, but you could put a patch on it yourself if you want, and in any event it’s a darn cool way to store your MHI dice!) If you want some other number (must be a multiple of 6, because that’s how they’ll be packaged for us by the manufacturer), you’ll be able to contact us for pricing.

–US backers at the $10 or $25 reward tiers can also add dice for a small shipping charge. International backers at the $10 or $25 reward tiers who want dice will be able to contact us for shipping costs and tell us how many dice they’d like, and we’ll send them a quote.

–If we have dice left over we’ll sell them in the store while supplies last, but Kickstarter backers will get their dice first. If we have lots of dice left over we may sell them through distributors to local game stores, but the only way to be sure to get MHI dice is to order them through this Kickstarter.

–Horace, an orc who’s skilled at gambling, will test all the dice to make sure they roll true. ;)
