high priests in golden temples
For certain, the debate last night really changed things in a big way. Romney turned it around, and at this point he's not winning, but he's a hell of a lot closer.
And I can prove that.
A few days ago the Vegas oddsmakers had Obama at -500 and Romney at +250 -- virtually insurmountable odds against the Mittster.
Today it's Big O -285 and the other guy +225. Obama still leads, but Willard took a big bite out of that lead.
Want the truth? I'm telling you, these guys in Vegas are better than the Oracle at Delphi. They're never wrong.
When I was a lot younger and foolisher, I lost a lot of money thinking those steely-eyed high priests of the All Mighty Dollar in the holy city of Lost Wages, with all that ice water running through their veins, might be wrong sometimes.
