BUSH MINUS ONE? Daily Kos links to this story out of West Virginia: It appears that a Republican elector to the Electoral College is publicly toying with the idea of not backing Bush if the President carries the Mountain State.

Difficult to know how seriously to take this development. But there is one perfectly plausible scenario--and maybe more than one--under which the presidential sweepstakes could end in a 269 to 269 electoral deadlock.

Is the election really going to be decided by South Charleston Mayor Richie Robb?

Just one more reason to rethink the entire Electoral College system.
