Race Loses

05Nov08

Race a factor? Obama did not win a majority of white voters; no Democrat has since Lyndon Johnson in 1964. But he ran equal to the last three Democratic candidates for president among white voters, and even slightly better than the party’s 2004 nominee, according to an Edison/Mitofsky exit poll conducted for a consortium of […]


Nutty E’s

28Oct08

As much as they respect brains and sophistication, liberals find theirs largely inoperative when it comes to Barack. Here’s the latest bit of email I’ve received purporting to offer profound insights. (The email I received is in blue, my responses are in black): A question of perspective : Obama/Biden vs McCain/Palin, what if things were […]


The Polls

26Oct08

Today’s tallys – from the polls we pay the most attention to. Rasmussen stays at 8% for the second day, Gallup stays at 5%, and Zogby drops to 5%, with a 3 point lead for Barack in yesterday’s polling alone (the 5% number comes from tabulating the last 3 days.) Rasmussen Reports 10/23 – 10/25 […]

Construction is underway for a massive stage in Grant Park where Barack Obama could declare victory on election […]


Governor Dumb

17Sep08

Barack had a couple of tough weeks after his convention ended. He got a four point bounce from his convention, but McCain’s bounce about doubled that, putting McCain into a small lead. Mature Democrats would realize the numbers will be doing a lot of moving around over the next several weeks. Normal Democrats will blame […]


Blind Racism?

10Sep08

The Governor of New York says that Sarah Palin was turning “community organizer” into racist code at the GOP convention. “So I suppose a small town mayor is sort of like a community organizer, except with real responsibilities,” she said at the convention. Paterson sees the repeated use of the words “community organizer” as Republican […]
