It Ain't Over Till It's Over

That's an immortal phrase by the late great Yogi "I never said half the stuff I said" Berra, and it's never been more true than in the state of Alaska this election.

Convicted felon and doddering hump of nasty senility Ted "The Internet is a series of tubes" Stevens has, as of this morning, fallen behind Mark Begich in the vote count.

With something like 20,000 votes left to count, Begich has leaped from a 3,000+ deficit to an 814-vote lead. If this trend continues, it's not only bye-bye to Nasty Ted, but also to the frightening possibility of Senator Sarah Palin.

As tempting as it is to do a "neener-neener" now, I'm going to hold it in until it's official.
