A tisket a tasket

... a red and blue Nebraska, where the second Congressional district is poised to give its electoral vote to Obama!

(The New York Times describes the EV allocation that Nebraska uses, though inaccurately. Nebraska, like Maine, gives its two Senatorial EVs to the statewide winner and the votes of each of its Congressional districts to the winner in each district. The word proportional doesn't begin to show that.)

What I liked best from the story:

“You can either get instant results or quality results,” [Douglas County’s elections commissioner, Dave Phipps] said this week. “We’re going with quality every time.”
Sounds like a Democrat, but he's not. Maybe there's hope for the Republicans yet.
