First Gallup, Now Rasmussen

Saturday, July 12, 2008

The race for the White House is tied. The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Saturday shows Barack Obama and John McCain each attract 43% of the vote. When "leaners" are included, Obama holds a statistically insignificant 47% to 46% advantage. Today is the first time that McCain’s support has moved above 45% since Obama clinched the nomination on June 3. It’s also the first time the candidates have been tied since Obama clinched the Democratic nomination .

Good. So am I.

This bears repeating:

"Your game of 'kickaround' has the exact same quality as the game of 'mooning.' All you are doing is showing your bare ass through the window of your car as you speed by and you hope that nobody knows who you are. That, at least, is logical, since showing your ignorance is not something to be really proud of doing.

If I played the same game at other people's web sites, I, too, would be mortified if anyone knew a name that I could be identified by. Your cowardice is obvious, and your lack of social skills should make you embarrassed.


Expelling the gases of your own flatulent ignorance, you are at the rear of thought. The intestinal discomfort you feel is the result of your noxious appetite. Being in bare assed conditions is normal for you, as the passing of fecal thoughts constitutes no flowing reality for your blogging life. The shite that you egress has been wiped from the thoughts of good people. The constipated thought process that you present blocks your ability to exude any sort of papered cleanliness. Washing your hands of the truth will not help much. You are already the e-coli of the blogging world."




And there you have it.

This is good news. When even the mainstream polls show McCain even, that means he's got to be at least six points up!

I think the Left in the press are sending Obama a message "in the clear" after last weeks FISA vote, Alice. Vere towards the Center and we'll make sure everyone thinks you'll lose (slanted polls). From NY Slimes...

PORTLAND, Ore. — In the breathless weeks before the Oregon presidential primary in May, Martha Shade did what thousands of other people here did: she registered as a Democrat so she could vote for Senator Barack Obama.

Brian Lee for The New York Times
Martha Shade of Portland, Ore., was “disgusted” by apparent shifts by Senator Barack Obama.
Now, however, after critics have accused Mr. Obama of shifting positions on issues like the war in Iraq, the Bush administration’s program of wiretapping without warrants, gun control and the death penalty — all in what some view as a shameless play to a general election audience — Ms. Shade said she planned to switch back to the Green Party.

“I’m disgusted with him,” said Ms. Shade, an artist. “I can’t even listen to him anymore. He had such an opportunity, but all this ‘audacity of hope’ stuff, it’s blah, blah, blah. For all the independents he’s going to gain, he’s going to lose a lot of progressives.”

The press thinks it runs the country. I hope Obama tells them to shove it.

"Never been a period like it."

True. Compared to the average lot of life of the last 6,000 years before "this period," we're living like kings and queens (who whine a lot because we're so spoiled).

Ecclesiasticus 44:19-25: "Ask not that thy wife cleave the gonads of thy enemies, for that is thine own job. 20. As to the cooking of the gonads, that is an abomination to the sight of the Lord, and the eating thereof shall not be suffered. 21: The Israelites did say 'Lord, these things are not tasty! Can we eateth anything else in this desert? 22 - 25: And did the Lord looketh upon them with pity and sayeth: 'Thou hast asked me that? I hath sent the manna to the desert, and thou art eating WHAT? Forgeteth thee inviting ME to dinner.'"

By the way, I cannot any longer see the idiot bloggers that you are erasing. I am no longer going to comment to them. But that last one hit my funny bone.

“As democracy is perfected, the office of the president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.”

Good ol' Henry. Always the cynical misanthrope.

Not to worry. If Democracy were "perfected," Gore would've been president in 2000 by plebiscite.

Thankfully, the wisdom of the Founding Fathers disdained the thought of mob rule by the unwashed masses, and so designed a Constitutional Republic (something the shrieking Gore supporters couldn't seem to grasp).

Actually, Democracy was perfected at one point. It created a phenomena called the "tyranny of the masses." Every so often the citizens of Athens would get together and decide on a scapegoat by polling.

Guilt and innocence were not a factor.

By the way, the people that invented democracy have been cold dead for a lot longer than the designers of our Constitution.
