Good morning Crooks and Liars! The good news and the bad news are the same: 14 unbearable days until the election! I keep reading that all the money and enthusiasm is on the side of Team Good, and that Team Evil is now rationing their few remaining dollars. Best advice I heard all weekend: Go to bed each night knowing Joe Biden is ahead in the polls, BUT wake up each morning thinking he's down by 5 and GET TO WORK! Keep up the enthusiasm, but assume nothing!
