An unknown contingency, hmm?
Let's name some, shall we?

-locust plague
-raining frogs
-Obama's head explodes from being far too cool
-Cindy uses her own money to send all voters $500,000
-Sarah Palin comes out as a lesbian, and she's engaged to Jodie Foster
-Obama is caught screwing Oprah in the bed of a pick-up truck
-McCain names Princess Sparkle Pony as his Press Secretary
...yours?

mine?

1.) US economy suddenly comes a gusher as therest of the world sinks into a sudden and ver deep depression. Suddenly the candidate who looks like a "defender of privilege" seems a better choice.

2.) National guard troops appear outside polling places in key districts in battleground states, checking IDs against voter registration rolls, only letting certain voters access to the polls.

3.) W dies! Cheney steps in, declares a state of emergency, decides it's too unsafe to allow large crowds to gather, so elections are suspended. Cheney decides he doesn't want to be the front man & declares McCain his successor "for the duration of the emergency".

4.) There's more of what's already being reported in early voting in West Virginia.

I think McCain did a little ditty on this based on the great oldies tune Barbara Ann.

I think about the only way "some kind of unknown contingency" can help MadDog now is if that "contingency" involves an asteroid the size of Mars. Headed this way. Fast. Then at least he couldn't LOSE. He might now win, but he couldn't lose!
