follow the money iii

from my bookie to your ear:

a lawyer friend of mine deals with bankruptcy cases. he told me that in 30 years of practice, he's never seen a bankrupt bookie. with this in mind, check out the odds being offered on the two candidates by a large selection of bookmakers.

obama is being offered at between 1/14 to 1/10 (you'd have to bet 14 dollars to win back 1 + your original bet). mccain is being offered by most bookies at 6/1 (you bet 1 dollar to get back 6 + your original bet).

bookies are very rarely wrong. so although, like many of you, i won't truly relax until the election is over and has been declared for obama, i'm pretty sanguine that mccombover and the repugs are history.
