Foes: A new story by Lorrie Moore | Books | The Guardian

On the eve of the US election, we publish a new story by Lorrie Moore, the finest short-story writer in America today
"Are you charming the patrons?"

"I fear some object may be thrown."

"You're supposed to charm the patrons."

"I know, I know, I was trying to. I swear. But she's one of those who keeps referring to Brocko as 'Barama'." He had violated most of Suzy's dinner-talk rules already: no politics, no religion, no portfolio tips. And unless you see the head crowning, never look at a woman's stomach and ask if she's pregnant. He had learned all these the hard way.

But in a year like this one, there was no staying away from certain topics.

Election 2008 Utah Edition

A couple of interesting tidbits from Utah one week out. The early voting is going gangbusters, over 147,000 as of yesterday.

A friend went to vote last night and had to wait in line for 1 1/2 hours, unbelievable. I don't know what it means, and there have been no recent polls in Utah measuring the presidential race, the last back in September had McCain up by 30 percent, not a surprise. ( Ah a new poll on the 25th of October MCain 56.4 Obama 32.4 Nader 1.6 Undecided 12.3) I think the final result will be much closer. I'll go out on a limb here and predict that the margin will be 10 percent or less.

There is a fellow at a nearby service station/convenience store who listens to right-wing radio non-stop. It's usually Sean Hannity when I stop by. Today my son asked him who he was voting for, expecting to hear John McCain, but instead listened to this right-winger say that he didn't like either of the two candidates and had already voted early for Ralph Nader.

Update

Major reasons he isn't voting for Obama:

  • Inexperience
  • The Reverend Wright
Major reasons he isn't voting for McCain:
  • Campaign framed in terms of why Obama is bad, not why John McCain is good. Doesn't like McCain's negative ads
  • Sarah Palin
  • Didn't like the way he treated Romney in the primary

I guess a vote for Nader is sometimes a vote for Obama.

Sarah Palin is Ignorant, Surprise

In a 'serious' policy address Sarah Palin demonstrated a serious lack of scientific literacy. Richard Wolfe, MSNBC political analyst said her statement about fruit flies "is the most mindless, ignorant, uninformed, comment that we have seen from Governor Palin so far and there's been a lot of competition for that prize."
