Alaska Senate Update - "Me Not Being a Dictator"

Nate Silver estimates the race is a tossup when you figure in the absentee, early, and provisional votes still to be counted. Interesting.

UPDATE: Here's what Sarah Palin had to say late today when asked if Ted Stevens should step aside and resign. "The Alaska voters have spoken and me not being a dictator, won't be telling anyone what to do" (my italics ... because I think it is funny). By the way, last month, Gov. Palin said Stevens should "step aside" and "play a very statesmanlike role in this now." Nice.

Over 81,000 early, absentee, and question ballots, scheduled to be counted on November 19th (the last day overseas absentee ballots are accepted). Questions about the turnout are finally front page news in the Anchorage paper.
