Obama Wins

That's it. Thanks to Andrew Williams I can formally announce that the presidential election is over. Obama has won. Not voting for him has become an absurdity. Why? Because the last work of fiction he read was Gilead by the sublime Marilynne

    I don't know if it's a good thing or not for a presidential candidate to admit he's a good poker player. How do we take that? It's not exactly an honest game.

  6. Andy Williams! What's going on here?
    Anyway, Obama's in the clear now because Jesse Jackon dissed him - best endorsement imaginable.
