Current Electoral Vote Predictor 2004 is a site that predicts the electoral vote using polling data. Currently it shows Kerry winning.

Edited 8/14: I updated the link which didn't work anymore. Also, after looking around this site more I think that this site has a bias towards Kerry. Someone mentioned it might be biased in the comments. I don't know if the section on Bush's record was there before, but it certainly has an anti-Bush slant now.

Posting this more so I remember to look at it later then anything else. Feel free to read it if you want, but I haven't yet

An interesting piece on the postmodern view of GWB. CTHEORY.NET > Being Nothing: George W. Bush as Presidential Simulacrum by Carol V. Hamilton I remember seeing the movie "Being There" which is discussed in this piece. I think that the author kind of misses a hidden point of the movie. In my mind the movie was kind of an infinite regress. The audience knows that Chance the gardiner is simple, and he is portrayed as being misunderstood by people who are too complex to understand him. But at the same time, his simplicity is wise.

Of course it's possible that the hidden intent of the paper is to present GWB in the same context, but it seems unlikely to me.

My dad worked once upon a time building the Washington Metro. He almost got run down by a test train that wasn't supposed to be running.
