Poll Crap

So you might have some McSame fans giving you crap about the recent polls. Just smile at 'em because they are a looaad.

1st, any 'National Poll' is pure folly. The game isn't a 'national' game. It is a state by state game.

Remember, Gore won the National Poll in the 2000 election.

Also, seems these 'polling' outfits ... *cough* conservative hacks *cough*.... are skewing the samples to benefit the Rethugs.

Dems have 42 million voters registered.... Republicans have 31 million.

Never discount Obama's ground game.

Poll Madness: McCain Takes Lead Even As Democrats Out-Register Republicans?:

"In a year in which Democrats have a lead of 11 million registered voters over Republicans, and have been adding to that advantage through a robust field operation, are pollsters over-sampling Republicans?"

And an anecdote from Bama to salve those scary polls.

Polls Schmolls! I had the MOST AMAZING ENCOUNTER!:

"I live near Birmingham, AL. I am north of Birmingham, in a mostly white area, chock full of the perfect demographic for the McCain campaign...

I had reason to meet up with an acquaintance last night... One I was SURE would give me a hard time about my Obama magnets I sport on 3 sides of my car....

He surprised me, and made my day..."

Obama's sharpening the knife with comedy.

Much truth in laughter.

Daily Kos: Obama Does Stand Up Comedy:

"'I mean think about it, you guys remember this, it was just like a month ago they were all saying ‘experience, experience, experience’,' Obama said as the crowd snickered, 'Then they chose Palin and started talking about ‘change, change, change’ - What happened?'

'I mean, mother, governor, moose shooter?! I mean I think that’s cool, that’s cool stuff,' Obama said about Palin’s biography.

When discussing McCain’s energy plan, Obama poked fun at his line on drilling. 'What were the Republicans hollerin’, ‘drill baby drill’? What kind of slogan is that?! They were getting all excited about drilling!'

He even found a way to make an answer to a question on civil liberties comical. While speaking about the importance of habeas corpus, Obama said, 'We don’t always catch the right person. We may think this is Mohammed the terrorist, it might be Mohammed the cab driver. You may think it’s Barack the bomb thrower, but it might be Barack the guy running for president.'"

V-PILF is scary, for sure.

Bush backer endorses Obama, calling Palin 'scary':

"A former Democratic New York mayor who backed George W. Bush for President in 2004 has now labeled Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin 'scary' and endorsed Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL).

Politico asked Koch 'what prompted the move.'

'The designation of Palin to be vice president,' he replied. 'She's scary.'

'Any time someone goes to the library and says, 'I want to ban books,' and the librarian says 'no,' and she threatens to fire them -- that's scary,' he said."

And her state's largest newspaper sure has some problems with her.

Questions for Palin: Opinion |

"There's no polite way to say it: Sarah Palin has been hiding out from hard questions. It took 10 days from when John McCain announced his pick until the McCain campaign agreed to schedule Palin an unscripted interview with a serious journalist.

ABC landed the big 'get' with Palin. She'll talk to Charlie Gibson of 'Good Morning America' later this week.

McCain's camp has handled their vice-presidential pick like some celebrity who will only deign to give an interview if conditions are favorable. McCain campaign manager Rick Davis told Fox News Sunday, Palin would take questions 'when we think it's time and when she feels comfortable doing it.'

Palin has accused Barack Obama of being a me-first celebrity candidate for president. At least he has been facing media questions for the past 18 months.

Here are some of the questions Palin should be answering, for Alaskans and the rest of the country:"
