If you're ever pulled away from the constant spew of talking heads, meaningless statistics and rhetorical bile parading itself as election news in order to fill the gaping 24/7 news cycle—you know, to do something other than wallow in political witticisms not half as sharp as as Jon Stewart's—the 99-cent Election '08 iPhone app will ease your withdrawal with slickly presented, constantly updating poll trackers, (theoretical) electoral vote counts (Obama's winning), and other stats by state, from the perspective of whoever you're rooting for—Scarlett Johanssen's email buddy, or the first candidate to successfully employ Emperor Palpatine's everlasting life clone technology.

I agree with David Letterman - the McCain age jokes aren't fair, and quite frankly are bit pedestrian.
Whether or not you agree with his politics, the man has done more for his country than all the tech bloggers on earth combined*.
On the app - this quite a bit better than the douche-app of the century, the one that just shows an icon on your springboard that either says, "Democrat" or "Republican." The descriptions says, "Now when you let someone look at your iPod or iPhone they can see what party your allegiance is to." That app is a dollar, btw.
* - this is just an estimate, but a good one, imo.
