54.7%

Get in while you can.
Back in mid-April, as O.J. so cruelly pointed out, he was at 61%. I was purportedly "apoplectic". Now there has been a 10% drop in the value of Barack Obama to be re-elected President in 2012. That is following the bump he got from the Supreme Court finding his massive tax increase to be not inconsistent with constitutional limits on federal governmental power.

Where to from here? There is money to be made and money to be lost because, as O.J. so rightly pointed out, Intrade is reflective of people actually putting their money where their mouths are.

Based on your non-stop crowing for two months now, I have concluded that this is the one-and-only time in your life you have ever one-upped someone, and you just can't bear to let the moment end.

But I'm begging you: Give it a fucking rest, windbag!

Bland, be more abrasive. But if you insist on being dull and insipid, at least try to be like Mr. Henry and post colorful drawings featuring your and your mother's schnozes. Thanks.

You have to give Bland a little slack Meade. He's been a little sensitive ever since he tried to watch the eclipse by staring directly into the sun.

Ze Intrade, it burns, It BURNZ!

Of course, Intrade put the odds of SCOTUS striking done ACA at 73.6%, so there's that.

And, yes Meade, that number has been confirmed!

Hey Meade, OJ's post in the other thread reminded me - been meaning to ask for an update. How about it?
