Helmets now mandatory for young skateboarders

Are walking helmets far behind? As anyone knows, sometimes a person trips and could fall and hit your head.

The money quote:

"Riding a skateboard can be just as dangerous, or even more dangerous, as riding a bicycle or using in-line skates," Pataki said in a statement released yesterday. "This new, common-sense law will protect New York's children from serious injury and keep them as safe as possible as they enjoy their skateboards."

As no statisitcs were included, I refuse to take the governor's word. And how does this law, unsupported by anything other the a within-the-realm-of-possibility justification, earn the moniker "common sense"?

And puh-leaze! The extension of helmet laws to anything with wheels is the opposite of common sense.

Dutch Try to Thwart Terror Without Being Overzealous

To be overzealous is to presuppose being zealous, isn't it?

Some money quotes:

"how to arrest suspected militants before they act, without trampling on individual rights or risking charges of discrimination." (multiculturalism at its best!)

"The government of the Netherlands has come under criticism for missing Mr. Bouyeri when Islamist death threats were made against Mr. van Gogh. But stopping him would have meant assessing guilt before the crime..." (If only we can get the police to intercede right before the knife is plunged into the body. European prevention!)

"But intelligence officials were more interested in a high school student named Samir Azzouz... apparently trying to make his way to Chechnya...He was sent back to Amsterdam, where social workers and schoolteachers tried unsuccessfully to coach him through his final exams." (Oh. My. God. This is the most pathetic example of protecting self-esteem through willful ignorance. Who the fuck is responsible for putting this type of meme into the culture???)

"The Dutch authorities found bomb ingredients in Mr. Azzouz's possession and remain convinced that a plot was taking shape. But Mr. Azzouz and the others arrested in the case were released within 10 days for lack of evidence." (Lack of evidence?)

"But the tougher laws inevitably lean more on Muslims than on the population as a whole, exacerbating tensions that are already polarizing many European societies." (This is surprising to the Ken and BArbie non-gonadals of the Left. The terrorists are Muslims!)

""The deterioration of community relations may actually undermine counterterrorism measures, because it reduces the willingness of people in these communities to cooperate with police and intelligence services," said Benjamin Ward, a lawyer for Human Rights Watch" (As long as no one is ever offended or made to feel uncomfortable, the worold is better off!)

"But despite intelligence reports noting Mr. Bouyeri's rapid radicalization... Mr. Bouyeri still did not rise to the level of an imminent threat...Mr. Azzouz and others were of greater concern. When Mr. Azzouz was detained in June on suspicion of armed robbery, the police found photos, maps and other materials in his apartment that led them to believe that he was planning a terrorist attack on government installations, including the country's nuclear power plant and its largest airport." (More "lack of evidence" but at least the revenue-devourers tried to make sure he passed his high school exams!)

Androgenous Europeans

In all fairness, the European negotiators have no claim to testosterone or estrogen.

Why allow the House of Islam free reign to develop plutonium? Is it any wonder the House of War is considered so stupid?

And to willfully let plutonium production be used as a negotiation to get a deal on uranium disproduction?

Kristoff Battles Authors

Jeez, has the Left devolved so far that attacking authors as hate merchants is all that is left?

I haven't read any of the Left Behind books, and I don't particularly care to. However, I do not see how Kristoff's attack is anything but an attack on free speech.

And when the Left attacks free speech, it cause outrage.

Wait, it doesn't.

As I was prepping the turnips for the best eating day of the year, I had Hardball on the TV.

The representative from the right was NR's Byron York.

The the other was Dana Milbank from the Washington Post.

Am I the only one who is shocked by the left/right format having a conservative from a conservative magazine and the liberal is the chief political reporter for a major mnewspaper daily?

Dan Rather

Seems as if CBS will get away with the fraudulent reporting of Bush's TANG documents.

Dan Rather was retiring anyhow. So he had nothing to lose in perpetuating the fraud.

Sadly, the losers will stand by Dan because they're trapped in a mental state worse than Ron Artest's.

Paging Craig Livingstone

So Rep. Istook say the IRS cleared the language as protecting individual taxpayers.

Doesn't make it right but it sure does take the sting out of the feigned outrage of the losers.

Post Discusses Circulation, Diversity

The post is going to shorten its already shorter than the NYT and WSJ articles and the bulk of the article is spent complaining about positive discrimination??!?!??!

It's a freakin' newspaper and should be conscerned with the news!

(Oh, the article complains about diversity not being sufficient at WaPo)

The New York Times > Opinion > Bush's Echo Chamber

I knew I shouldn't have, but I could not resist a column titled so.

Mr. Herbert is not a good columnist. He is a loyal ideologue though, and I'll kindly refrain from any other conjecture on how and why he has the position he does.

His proof of his position rest on this line:

"We see from recent headlines how well that has worked out."

So headlines, which seek to be the most eye-catching, are the proof he needs. What a seeker of knowledge!


Liberal Guilt

If liberal guilt causes erroneous results in exit polls, isn't it rational to assume that liberal guilt would cause erroneous results in other areas in which it drives policy?

As Mr. Scheiber does not dismiss the liberal guilt exit poll hypothesis, he gives credence to it. Heck, he provided a plausible defense.

I am glad to see this meme floated into the political air.

Clinton Museum Accused of Historical Bias

And how is anyone surprised by this?

The Clintons are trying to write history. Unfortunately, 9/11/01 occurred, and this lead to a re-examination of the 1990s.

Poor guy. Blessed with intelligence and oratorial ability. I wonder about those moral values though.

Jeramy Ailes

The House of Islam practicing deception with the House of War. Who'd a thunk?

Military Assessment: Marine Officers See Risk in Cuts in Falluja Force

I don't know why I read this as I only got to the third paragraph and read:

"The pessimistic analysis is contained in a seven-page classified report..."

Assuming "classified" means "not for public dissemination", I conclude it was leaked. Also, I question whether these types of analyses are by nature "pessimistic", and if so, then the direness of the article is misplaced.

Further in, a senior Marine officer says, ".....the tactital intel is almost always more dour than that done at the strategic level."

Dour is certainly a description very close in meaning to "pessimistic", and as such, makes the report typical and unworthy of extra emphasisi due to its pessimicity.

But the proof I waste my time (reading it and then blogging it!) is sourcing for the report:

"Details of the report and some of its verbatim findings were provided to The New York Times this week by four active-duty or retired military officers in Iraq and Washington who have read the report or heard descriptions of it. "

So the NYT ran this front-pager on four military officers who have either read the report or heard about it????

What is the name of that children's game where one person whispers a statement in the ear of the person next to them, and then that person whispers it to the one next to him and so on until it reaches the final person as a completely different statement?

I wonder how far removed at least one of the four was in this adult-version fo the game?

Wednesday, November 17, 2004

Excepts from Mr. Steyn's National Reveiw column:

"The day after the election, I found myself behind a Vermont granolamobile bearing the sticker Bush Scares Me.... When fear's a bumper sticker, you're probably safe.

...A lot of Democrats seem to have succeeded in genuinely terrifying themselves. "Dejected Voters Find Themselves In An Even Bluer State," ran a Los Angeles Times headline — in its Health section: "'People are in absolute post-traumatic stress and total despair and pretty much believe American society is permanently destroyed,' says Renana Brooks, a Washington, D.C., clinical psychologist whose practice was flooded with calls on Wednesday morning . . . It looks to me like a worse trauma than 9/11." According to the San Francisco Chronicle in its post-Election Day roundup, "Of the eight patients San Francisco psychotherapist Frances Verrinder saw Wednesday, seven were upset and frightened to the point of tears . . .

...Sophisticated liberals aren't meant to be impressionable, of course. That's for us rube-hick-hayseed types warned by our preacherman to follow the Lord Bush or burn in Hell with the fornicators and sodomites and multilateralists. But you can't help noticing that, for all the Jane Smileys, Bill Mahers, and Maureen Dowds scoffing at Jesus-freak Republicans as fearful, superstitious, closed-minded simpletons, it's their side that's carrying on like a millennial suicide cult....

Okay, you sold me, gimme the sticker: Bush Scares Me, Too. He scares me because he came within two points — or, as they say on the cable shows, 136,000 votes in Ohio — of handing over the country to this crowd....Bush missed an opportunity three years ago. Back in the days of his 80 percent approval ratings, when the embers at Ground Zero were still smoking, the president could have made a big effort to shift the culture of the country away from the stunted emotional narcissism of modern liberalism...."

So does this sound like the kind of thing the NYT would allow amongst the leading Lefty crazies of its op-ed page? Dan Okrent hasn't made any friends as Public Editor and he's an avowed Democrat!

I'll segue from the "emotional narcissism of modern liberalism" into a commentary on the 56-year-old who had twins with no father in the picture. As a New Yorker, what I find disturbing is the generally positive coverage this woman has received. What about the likelihood of this children having their only parent die on them? Are teenagers capable of the wisdom necessary to be grateful for life or will they live in fear that there parent will die young?

Nevermind losing out on the physical relationship that will be lost. Who's going to play outside with the kids? Rake the leaves? Ride with them on their bikes? Throw the ball with them? Swing the bat? Play in the dirt?

What is more disturbing is this woman's selfishness is socially accepted, and it is here that the loss of moral values is most starkly illustrated.

The kicker quote: "When I look into my children's eyes, I feel such love, gratitude and appreciation for having been given these miraculous gifts," St. James said after her birth.

Group Says Iran Has Secret Nuclear Arms Program

Surprise! A Muslim country lying! House of Islam (them) and House of War (everyone else including the nitwit Europeans.)

Safire's NYT Replacement

I'd go with Jonah Goldberg over Mark Steyn because Steyn is too much of a bomb-thrower in the mold of Anne Coulter.

I would also express no shock if Safire's column was not replaced by another conservative.

See, the only time quota's must be refilled is when it is a liberal member of the Multiculturalists.

Tomato Shortage

I had two tomato plants this summer and bore three months worth.

As a result, I'm in no mood for tomatoes. So this price spike should pass by the time I want anymore. (Plus, I still have two left.)

Powell Gets Plea to Run Against Clinton in 2006

Not sure what to think. My initial reaction is a campaign full of Bush-bashing recrimination.

A Sister Souljah moment for Colin Powell would be necessary.

But against Hillary, I suspect Republicans would run near anybody and endure anything to see her lose.

Ohio To Go Through Statewide Vote Recount After All

And whose talking points included voter fraud?

Major network news chiefs review election, look to future

I see the emergence of one of the Big 3 networks as a Fox rip-off as inevitable. Eventually, the MBAs will cease speaking in terms of niches and go back to basic imitation. As none of the MSM does it, there is room for a flat-out copy of Fox.

An interesting blurb from the above article:

"...All three said their networks had set up investigative units to review any claims of voter fraud or problems with electronic voting technology this year..."

And whose talkingpoints included voter fraud and electronic voting problems?

The Teamsters Find Pensions at Risk

A couple points.

1st, being right for the wrong reason does not expertise make. Hoffa used the pension assets as a slush fund first and foremost. He only got lucky that the stock market was tanking when he was doing so.

2nd, there is no doubt fixed income securities have been the place to be in the 21st century but using that to make the point that the Central States fund was mismanaged is misleading. What were the comparison in the 90s when stocks were the hot sector?

Overall, I still hold the postion that pensions should be extremely conservative which would conflate with the argument of this article.

Never Assume a Conservative Editorial Page means Conservative News

This article on Clegene is framed in a way to make the company seem like Yassar Arafat is saving its place in Hell.

It took a generic drug, thalidomide, and used the price-unconscious cancer market to boost its price to the stratosphere.

Here is the quote which gets to the crux of the healthcare probelm

"Either people are wealthy enough to pay or health insurance pays or our company gives the medicine away for free"

Schumer Warns of Fight Over Justice Thomas

This is why I voted against Schumer. I believe he has done a job that voters would not disapprove of to the extent of voting against him. This seems to be the message the NY Republicans sent too by not supporting Howard Mills run.

However, I knew Senator Schumer to be very obstructionist on Bush's judicial nominees. And he fails to disappoint.

And tossing out charges of "banana republic" to undermine our judicial process is part and parcel of the Democrats attempts to undermine the election with phony charges of "disenfranchisement" of blacks (while being the only party to activately take away the Nadar vote.) and with calls for international monitors.

Bush Is Facing Tough Choices on Immigration

Illegal immigration is an issue especially in those areas where it is large enough to break into the consciousness of the community.

The biggest problem is all the "free" stuff a community provides like schools, hospitals, and infrastructure. When the illegal immigrant population gets too large, it overwhelms the slack built into municipal sytem i.e. too many ESL students in the school system snowballs into adding more staff who become permanent employees.

On the other hand, demographic projections necessitate more young workers to pay the entitlement taxes for the elderly who will not give-up thier "right" to those taxes.

An aside, I'd still prefer this immiration "problem" to the Muslim one the Eurpoeans have.

AARP Opposes Bush Plan to Replace Social Security With Private Accounts

I would have linked this within the earlier post on SS privatization, but as I no longer read the NYT first thing in the AM, I didn't see the article until a few minutes ago.

The AARP, an advocacy group, is against privatization, and therefore can be termed an anti-privatization advocacy group.

Within the same article, the fact that the AARP stood behind the expansion of Medicare for prescription drug benefits provides support for a flippant remark I made that the eldery love their free stuff.

I couldn't pass-up this softball:

"One message, by an editor of an AARP magazine, says, "There is a new forbidden word at AARP: Social (1) Security (2) privatization (3).'' (Parentheticals are mine. As is the bold-face type.)

Power Line: Democratic Party Crack-up

Unfortunately, I can see the same pathway. In mine, it will be a disaffected white rich kid.

Maybe Phillip Roth's American Pastoral made more of an impression (beyond perplexion) than I beleive?

There is a pressure cooker of hate that will have to vent, and Arafuck dying isn't going to help. The relativism of the Left will be properly ridiculed by the common-sensical.

Windfall From a Privatization Of Social Security to Take Time

Sounds icky, and I'm all for privatization.

First, the 100s of asset firms who think they're going to benefit are deluded. The fee structure alone should cause a pause for concern.

Assuming a scheme gets past the gutlessness of elected officials and screeching of anti-privatization advocacy groups, the management fees will be along the lines of a Vanguard. At most.

2nd, the administrative costs, and possible remedies, will only ad more bureacracy. I'd say "in the short-run", but who, exactly, is naive enough to believe gov't jobs that would be created would ever disappear?

A never-mentioned positive is that the passing of the elephant that our anaconda of an entitlement system must pass (the baby boom generation) will leave us with a a entitlement dividend that could allow for untold benefits.

(I beleive the US will expand immigration to cover for the crack-esque addiction the elderly have in keeping their "free" stuff.)

Yasser Arafat, 75 - November 11, 2004 - The New York Sun

The opening paragraph says it all.

"Yasser Arafat, the terrorist leader bent on destroying Israel who insisted he wanted to die a martyr to the Palestinian cause, managed instead to die of natural causes last night at a hospital in Clamart, France."

No wonder the Left loves him. The Arab version of a limosine/gated-community liberal.

Compared to the NYT:

"Mr. Arafat, who was the symbol of the Palestinian revolution and aspiration for an independent state for some 40 years, died at about 3:30 a.m. Paris time of complications from an unknown disease after lingering in a coma for days, as his wife and closest aides struggled over his political and financial legacy."

Struggled over his legacy? Only the Left who are still smarting from being, de facto, on the side of Saddam Hussein.

Generosity Index 2004

I hit this through a link on Michelle Malkin's website.

It is shocking how far down you have to go to get to a Kerry State - #26.

Companies Sue Union Retirees To Cut Promised Health Benefits

This is ugly.


So the Dems think being more secular is the answer?

So energizing more young voters is the recipe? Didn't work last time.

Using the internet? Damn it, dummies! Who can't learn that?!?!??!?!?

Not only is the leadership of the Democrat Party Godless but they're stupid to boot!

Bush's Secularist Triumph - The left apologizes for religious fanatics. The president fights them. By Christopher?Hitchens

Headline says it all but what about this?

"So here is what I want to say on the absolutely crucial matter of secularism. Only one faction in American politics has found itself able to make excuses for the kind of religious fanaticism that immediately menaces us in the here and now. And that faction, I am sorry and furious to say, is the left. From the first day of the immolation of the World Trade Center, right down to the present moment, a gallery of pseudointellectuals has been willing to represent the worst face of Islam as the voice of the oppressed."

Or this?

" One probably should not rest too much on the similarity between Bin Laden's last video and the newly available DVD of Fahrenheit 9/11. I would only say that, if Bin Laden had issued a tape that with equal fealty followed the playbook of Karl Rove (and do please by all means cross yourself at the mention of this unholy name), it might have garnered some more attention. The Bearded One moved pedantically through Moore's bill of indictment, checking off the Florida vote-count in 2000, the "Pet Goat" episode on the day of hell, the violent intrusion into hitherto peaceful and Muslim Iraq, and the division between Bush and the much nicer Europeans. (For some reason, unknown to me at any rate, he did not attack the President for allowing the Bin Laden family to fly out of American airspace.)"

I hope John Podesta's Great White Hope finally does something intellectually admirable.

Derbyshire Discovers a New Element

"A major research institution has recently announced the discovery of the heaviest chemical element yet known to science. The new element has been tentatively named 'Governmentium.' Governmentium has 1 neutron, 12 assistant neutrons, 75 deputy neutrons, and 11 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 312. These 312 particles are held together by forces called morons, which are surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like particles called peons. Since governmentium has no electrons, it is inert. However, it can be detected as it impedes every reaction with which it comes into contact. A minute amount of governmentium causes one reaction to take over 4 days to complete when it would normally take less than a second. "Governmentium has a normal half-life of 3 years; it does not decay, but instead undergoes a reorganization in which a portion of the assistant neutrons and deputy neutrons exchange places. In fact, governmentium's mass will actually increase over time, since each reorganization will cause some morons to become neutrons, forming isodopes. This characteristic of moron-promotion leads some scientists to speculate that governmentium is formed whenever morons reach a certain quantity in concentration. This hypothetical quantity is referred to as 'Critical Morass.' You will know it when you see it."

Like a Phoenix from the Ashes...

Jerry Falwell? Hopefully, Karl Rove catches this before it before the MSM does.

The 'Dutch 9/11' Sends Leaders to Safe Houses

Surprise! Radical Islam does not discriminate within the Dar al-harb .

Those of the Left who believe voting for Kerry or trying to further Palestinian causes will somehow innoculate you against the crazies have been warned, but deaf ears are tough to get through.

Monday, November 08, 2004

There has been a lot of teeth-gnoshing over why Bush won. The initial reaction has centered around "moral values."

As it was cited as the most important issue by voters, this is not surprising. However, as with any question which is open to broad interpretation, being the most-cited means little. Only 22% cited "moral values." The exit poll categorized the various answers into 7 broad categories that accounted for 93% of those polled. Being number 1 amongst seven does not necessarily mean that one has received a majority.

As I previously stated here, the mutual-exclusivity of "Iraq" and "terrorism" is not fully-explainable, but the exit polls did so because the Kerry campaign attempted to separate the two. As Bush received almost double the support of those citing "Iraq" as Kerry did of those citing "terrorism", I hold that "Iraq" was not mutually exclusive from "terrorism," and the Kerry campaign's attempt to make Iraq distinct from pan-Arab terrorism failed. As "terrorism" was cited by 19%, there is a good chance that it was #1. If so, then the exit poll was wrong on this count also. (the first being Kerry winning.)

More interestingly, is the lack of attention given to those who cited "health care" as is #1 reason - 8%! Maybe the reason the Democrats continue to lose is they believe health care a winning issue but misinterpret it being at the top of a "most important issue" question with it being the most important issue of the majority.

Living Poor, Voting Rich

(Should I check his sources? Calling Joe Wilson!) Snarkiness aside, this argument that Americans don't vote for their best interests is a pillar of dissonance-soothing amongst the Left.

If the Left were to recognize that their intellectual pining for redistributive utpoia has failed in the guise of Communism or as a non-growth/economic contracting Socialism, then they'd fly off the handle like Lawrence O'Donnell did to the Swift Boat Vets as the pillar of his being was rocked! ( The Left is determined that their misconflation of black civil rights and Vietnam protesting was noble.)

As one of those whom the Democrats claim to be advancing for my own good, I can tell you right off the top that the party's affinity for positive discrimintion does nothing for me. I grew-up working class and un-networked. What do I get from the Democrats? A compettive disadvantage against those of similar socio-econimc background.

Enough said.


I am grateful the Michael-Moore-ization of the Democrat party failed. To see OBL pathetically parroting MM's talking points was distressing.

Of course, I amy be making spurious connections. Does anyone know if the massadras in the mountains of Pakistan routinely teach My Pet Goat?


I agree that the MSM has suffered a serious blow to its credibility, but let's be honest, as we move away from it, what will remain are those who agree with them.

As that audience becomes more homogenous, the coverage with become more shrill. Before you know it, the various branch's of MSM will announce their intentions to restore the glorious history of imparting ideological points of view a la Alexander Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson.

While I enjoy being the choir, I'm not sure a want a out in the open division of news between one ideology and the other. But for now, schadenfreude rules!

Simple but Effective - Why you keep losing to this idiot. By William Saletan

So I leave work at 4 PM and don't get back on the PC until 6:30 PM (after agreeing to put Teen Titans on the TV for the boy in exchange for the PC).

Apparently, the exit polls were being leaked to Lefty bloggers and causing quite a bit of premature celebration.

By the time I was on, there was no hint of this Lefty jubilation.

Hey! Shouldn't we all be concerned that the exit polls were leaked to the Lefty bloggers when they looked like a Reagan-esque Electoral College sweep for Kerry?

Several thoughts are racing through my Benadryl-induced five hours of sleep. (I know. What I amcomplaining about!)

First, PA. With 99% reported, Kerry leads by 120K. In OH with 100% reporting, Bush leads by 137K.

PA has been called for Kerry a looooooooooooooooooong time ago, but some media outlets can't do the same for OH and Bush.

2nd, WI has been called for Kerry with a 15K lead but samller states with simialr leads, IO and NM, aren't called for Bush.

3rd, why does any of this matter to Democrats? Bush won the popular vote and did it with a majority. Like father like son!

Mostly one needs to understand that every time an absentee ballot or provisional ballot vote goes to Bush, Kerry must get two - one to cancel the Bush vote and one to net a vote.

Not likely. Bush wins, and the Sox winning the pennant was about a frozen as Hell could take right now.

Tuesday, November 02, 2004

A couple early exit polls show Kerry +4 in OH and +1 in FL.

After a moment of deflation, I remembered that I have been in enough football pools to know that a mid-1st quarter lead is nice for the teams I picked, but it does not correlate well with who is ahead at the end of the game.

This thought has actually made me more confident. (What iceberg? That bitty thing up ahead?)

Q uick reminder that heavy AM turnout does not translate into heavy turnout overall.

The complicating facotr is whether or not those who voted early or early AM would not have voted later in the day.

And there is no evidence that this is the case. None. Zippo. Zilch.

As the Red Sox won the World Series, this election could be the exception also.

Americans vote out a sitting President during a war.

Americans vote in a man who cavorted with the enemy during a war (Vietnam.)

High turnout favors Democrats.

Hate can win an election.

At 6:20 AM, I was the 9th voter at my voting precinct.

Something that I wanted to comment on is the Zogby polls. As I have already commented that luck could easily explain his "accuracy in 2000 and 1996 (Imagine getting somethin right two times in a row was a qualification for expertise!), I'd like to question how he finished his polling through 11/1 by 7:30 PM EST at the latest.

(Why is that time stuck in my head? BEcause I turned on Fairly Odd Parents for my son then.)

Aren't the battlegorunds states other than OH and FL on EST? Why would he poll during the day but not in the evening?

Early Voters

I seriously question whether or not the "results" of early voters are random samples of the electorate as a whole. If they are not, then they are worthless pieces of information when trying to conduct a poll of the entire population.

In Fox's Florida poll, a Kerry +5 result occurs. 37% of the sample reports they have voted early. If the Kerry figure is wrong, I am lead towards a conclusion that early voters favored Kerry not that early voters are representative of the Florida population as a whole.

My prediction for tomorrow (subject to change per tomorrow and Wednesday's increase in information.)

Bush 315-223. 52% to 46%. No lawyers. No Michael Moore Democrat Party. No more pictures of Muslims dancing in the streets circa 09/11/01.

Bush will take NH and the one congressional district in ME. He will take NM.

WI, MN, and IO will go Bush. All three successfully defended their residents right to vote for Ralph Nader. (No ink wasted on the only party vigilantly attempting to take away citizens right to vote for a candidate.)

DISCLAIMER: I want a clear victory and do not want to shit all over the US Election system as the Democrats have done.

If Bush wins tomorrow, this alternate write-up a September CBS/NYT poll will point towards why.

And, as the internals, still favor Bush, I don't see any reason to quibble with the conclusion.


Based upon a 90% break of undecideds for Kerry and a 60% voter turnout assumption, Kerry gets a tie.

While Gallup has been pilloried by the Left for showing positive Bush results, I wonder if they Left is happy with those two assumptions?

Pew and CBS/NYT (Q6)are showing a 50/50 split of undecideds.

We will know on Wednesday.
