Bush Will Win

Ohio is not looking good. At 1am Kerry is trailing by 130,000 votes after 83% has been counted. There are apparently about 400,000 provisional ballots (according to Bjarte in Norway). They have apparently counted the absentee ballots already.

Thus it's pretty clear: Bush will win Ohio and the election. He'll have to find his own way out of the mess he created. Maybe that's for the best. Who knows. I'm going to bed.

UPDATE: My friend Bjarte was way off (perhaps because he stayed up until 7am). They are now saying there are about 175,000 provisional ballots, and Bush leads by 140,000. There is no way Kerry can close that gap.
