More in my Wingnut Madness series about the right wing's willful ignorance of statistics. The WaPo's Jennifer Rubin has been in the bag for Romney since go street, to an embarrassing extent.

As of today, October 1st, Obama is virtually assured of re-election barring some major unforeseen event.

Romney's path to victory must include winning all of the "red states" plus essentially every swing state, including at least one but most likely both of Ohio and Florida, both of which he is losing at the moment. And he's trailing in most of the rest of the swing states.

Obama needs to win the solid blue states, plus one swing state, say Colorado, and he's got it sewn up. He could lose both Florida and Ohio and still win. It ain't over til the fat lady sings, but she's warmed up and ready to walk onto the stage. Romney needs a couple miracles to win.

Rubin of course, concludes that this means the race is "up for grabs." I realize she's in the bag for Romney, but this level of spin just makes my brain hurt.
