Its sad when our best hope is that the Democrats don’t get 60 seats in the Senate...
GLENN: Let's go quickly to Stu and get our election report.
STU: We're focusing on the Senate again, Glenn, trying to keep the Democrats away from 60 seats. That is the big number. The four must-win states for Republicans: Mississippi where they are currently leading by at least one, in other polls even more; Georgia by two they lead; Texas by 6 they lead; and the other one is in Kentucky where McConnell leads by 4 and a couple of other polls are actually even more optimistic about that. But an interesting thing has happened in this race. There was a debate the other day and after the debate was over, basically where you could have tape recorders that you could put on the little, on the podium and when the debate was over, McConnell's opponent, the Democrat, stole the tape recorder off -- stole the Republican tape recorder off of the podium.
GLENN: How would he --
STU: Now, this is all on camera because, of course, it's a debate. Now, you wonder why you would put a tape recorder on the podium. Some people was saying because there were audio problems, the other people were saying they were trying to catch him saying something under his breath. But it was apparently allowed by the rules. So we have actually the tape. What happened was he took the tape. It started going between some of his aides. They eventually erased it but they digitally recovered the tape. This is actual audio of the tape. You can hear -- what you're going to hear here basically is a lot of static, a lot of rustling around in this tape recorder because they were stupid enough to steal it but not turn it off. So it was continually recording. You can hear what appears to be the Democratic opponent saying "Don't give it back to them."
GLENN: Oh, my gosh.
STU: It's unbelievable. And then at the end you'll actually hear them walk into the bathroom and hear toilets flushing and they still hadn't turned it off. Eventually --
GLENN: Turn the music off for a second, Dan, so we can really hear. This is very difficult for you to hear. It's very obnoxious audio, but listen to this.
STU: Rustling around, walking toward the bathroom now. Hear the audio cut down a little. And there's the toilet flushing.
GLENN: That's just unbelievable. I mean, can you -- I mean, look what we're looking to put into congress, people who steal -- we've got 4-year-olds stealing tape recorders and saying, don't give it back to them, don't give it back to them.
STU: It's unbelievable.
GLENN: That should -- you know what? Let me tell you something. I know the good people of Kentucky. You should not vote for anybody, I don't care what side that was on, I'd be saying if it was McConnell, you do not vote for somebody who is a thief, a knowing thief because he's going to come in the middle of the night and check your wallet.
STU: We project two more states in the presidential race today with 100% accuracy. Today Iowa for Barack Obama and Idaho for John McCain. The current electoral vote count, McCain 131, Barack Obama 95.
