two weeks to go

The polls are making me sick. Almost literally. I swore I wasn't going to pay attention to the polls, but my relentlessly obsessive thinking about the election gobbles up everything in its path.

Zogby, Gallup, NY Times/CBS, Newsweek/MSNBC... on and on it goes. Those that look too scary, I discard. Those that look hopeful, I cling to. It's ridiculous, because I believe they are meaningless, manipulated, media driven. What's more, we're going to do what we're going to do, regardless. It's not like I'm going to quit in the home stretch because some guy named Rasmussen tells me W is ahead by a statistical sneeze.

But still, I gape at them.

Two weeks to go.

Two weeks - and two games?
