Election 2008: Almost Over

As we approach the homestretch of an election season that seems to have been going on forever, I thought it would be fitting to take a ride in the way-back machine and have a look at our election coverage. OK, so "coverage" is stretching it. But most of the posts contain words. Some even understandable words that have a connection to election. So you get the idea.

Starting back on Feb 26, 2007, we tagged our first Election 08 post written by one of our former bloggers and owner (who, btw has moved on to start a successful and interesting blog. Hey, that's not a bad idea...a successful and interesting blog...). We were discussing the impacts of a recession -- or pointing out other people discussing the impact of a recession, same difference -- on the election when most people still thought this race was all Iraq. I drunk/drug blogged GOP and Democratic debates starting in June of '07 and we've continued that all the way through the first general election debate last week and the only VP debate tonight (stay tuned).

Mike Huckabee's run was well documented here with no doubt left about how we felt about the former-chubbster from Arkansas. Primaries of both parties were covered (with predictions that never came true) with the same booze and drug induced haze that you came to know from the debates. I first blogged on Obama not too long after joing TtP in October '06 about his admitted drug use. Back in Feb '08 while live-blogging a Democratic debate I announced my approval for a certain hot governor VP prospect mentioned in this Spectator piece.

There's still a month left in this thing, but it's fun to go back and take a look at where we have been after almost 2 full years of the campaigns. Anyone else looking forward to a break?
