Sign of the times: political TechMeme headline

The headline screams “no one in tech can defend McCain.” So, who wants to take up the other side? Anyone?

I found two. John Dvorak bet me $100 that McCain would win. My producer, Rocky Barbanica, who was a software engineer for decades before switching careers, bet me another $100 that McCain would win.

Over on Twitter and FriendFeed most of the participants there, including me, are for Obama, but there are a few who are staunchly for McCain.

This is your last chance to talk politics for a while! Whew, glad to hit Wednesday and be done with all of this.

  1. “The world can’t afford for McCain to win. The world needs an America that is not self-righteous, self-centred and retributionist. There is more hope of achieving that under Obama.”
    i think so ….
    Change we need!..

    Do you say this because you’re heading to China and you’re not going to talk about freedom and politics?
    E.g. When will we see an elected head of state in that country? When someone from the many minorities in that countries? How to break the party monopoly, corruption, solve enviromental problems without civil war and worldwide economic collapse?
    The world still has a long, long way to go.

  5. It would appear you’re at least $200 richer this morning.

    Too bad you didn’t get a multiple for the electoral landslide. :-)

    Now, on to climbing out of this hole that 8 yrs of Bush has put this country in…

  7. Congrats on the $200 Scoble. I have to say that I am a fan of betting against what I believe in when it is that important however; that way, even if you loose, you win a little.

  19. I am too giddy… I have to post again.. hope coarses through my veins like the roaring rapids of the Colorado!! Once the fairness doctrine is signed we will finally be as one nation, no dissenters among us. We will speak with one voice to the world. Is it January yet?
