Odds on 2008

I don’t know exactly where they get their numbers, but a site called Sportsbook.com (I know some people who know some people who mentioned that they heard about some people who bet football there) has the following odds for the 2008 Presidential race.

Strangely, W is still in the mix, although he is a 200-1 longshot. Giving W a third term might be the only way the Red States can up with to retaliate for the upcoming movie, Brokeback Mountain.
