Just an FYI, folks — MoJoBlog and Kevin Drum will have coverage of the election all day and all night. We know we’re not replacing CNN, but visit us for analysis, under-the-radar stories, and our typical panache.

For now, we’ve got four stories that went up late yesterday: Kevin Drum’s “The Great Persuader,” about the challenges Obama will face should he win; my “Election Day Arrives: Should Obama Supporters Worry?” about whether the supposed tightening in the polls should give anyone pause; Laura Rozen’s “Getting Ready for President McBama,” about a Congressional honcho who is ready to work intelligence in a McCain or Obama administration; and Adele M. Stan’s “Howard Phillips’ World,” about the Constitution Party candidate who could provide inspiration for the GOP.

Hope to see a lot of you over the next, oh, 17 hours.

TIME IS RUNNING OUT!

We have an ambitious $350,000 online fundraising goal this month and it's truly crunch time: About 15 percent of our yearly online giving usually comes in during the final week of the year, and in "No Cute Headlines or Manipulative BS," we explain why we simply can't afford to come up short right now.

The bottom line: Corporations and powerful people with deep pockets will never sustain the type of journalism Mother Jones exists to do. And advertising or profit-driven ownership groups will never make time-intensive, in-depth reporting viable.

That's why donations big and small make up 74 percent of our budget this year. There is no backup to keep us going, no alternate revenue source, no secret benefactor. If readers don’t donate, we won’t be here. It's that simple.

And if you can help us out with a donation right now, all online gifts will be matched thanks to an incredibly generous matching gift pledge.
