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.

REAL QUICK, REAL URGENT

Minority rule, corruption, disinformation, attacks on those who dare tell the truth: There is a direct line from what's happening in Russia and Ukraine to what's happening here at home. And that's what MoJo's Monika Bauerlein writes about in "Their Fight Is Our Fight" to unpack the information war we find ourselves in and share a few examples to show why the power of independent, reader-supported journalism is such a threat to authoritarians.

Corrupt leaders the world over can (and will) try to shut down the truth, but when the truth has millions of people on its side, you can't keep it down for good. And there's no more powerful or urgent argument for your support of Mother Jones' journalism right now than that. We need to raise about $450,000 to hit our online fundraising budget in these next few months, so please read more from Monika and pitch in if you can.
