Magic Shake-Ball

Dear Magic Shake-Ball:

I can't  f – #$%^*!@-ing take this election poll switching sh-%$# any more. Just tell me who's going to win and put me out of my misery.


" 'Save you, friend Cassio!"
             (Othello 3.4.169)


Okay. Give me a minute here. Cassio is set up by Iago so that it looks like he's slept with Othello's wife when he really didn't, but Othello falls for it and then agrees to have Iago kill him. Lucky for Cassio the plot doesn't work and Othello ends up killing himself for a million different reasons and Iago ends up arrested. Now, am I supposed to read race into this? Because if I am, then Obama is Othello and this is not going to end well for him. BUT if Obama is Cassio and Romney is Iago (a guy who changes his words depending on the audience and who's jealous of a smarter guy's success) THEN Obama just might pull through this and be "saved." I'm going with option #2. A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do.
