  • How Insiders Were Fooled: Bloggers Leaked Secret Data Giving Kerry an Early Lead

    Thanks to lessons learned four years ago when big media made some wrong calls, the average American watching television Tuesday night got a pretty accurate picture of how the election was going. But for about seven hours in the afternoon and early evening, several million "insiders" with access to exit-poll data -- blog readers, print journalists, TV executives, politicos and their e-mail buddies -- had a different impression. Aided by wishful thinking in some cases, many were convinced that John Kerry was benefitting from a powerful voter surge. The news largely wasn't reported on TV or in newspapers, but for...

Our predictions on many of the key battleground states like Ohio and Florida were within the margin of error. I thought we captured a trend, but apparently that result didn’t materialize. “We always saw a close race, and a close race is what we’ve got. I’ve called this the Armageddon Election for some time—a closely-divided electorate with high partisan intensity on each side."

Bradley pointed out that Bush leads Kerry by 145,000 votes in Ohio, and even if 250,000 provisional ballots remain (which he considered a high estimate), and that even if all the provisional ballots are valid, Kerry would...

    Beware! Do not look upon the Gorgon!The presidential election on Tuesday is one of the most crucial in American history. There are many reasons -- in foreign policy and on the domestic front -- why President George W. Bush should not be reelected. Among them is the dominance of the radical right in his advisory councils, who are taking the United States down the wrong road at the start of the 21st century. The road could lead to more mindless wars abroad and a widening gap between the rich and the poor in this country. There will be only one...

    The earlier thread about the October Surprise "Mutiny" hit piece on this mornings Today show prompted me to do some Googling to try to see if there were any connections of note.  I felt that even the little evidence I found warranted a quick heads up and (forgive me) a separate thread as a call to action.  I have no particular standing to do this, but this concerned me enough to fire off a flare.It looks like the extreme left is orchestrating an October Surprise propaganda campaign against the war in Iraq and President Bush by staging a "mutiny" of...

    New York - A cable pay-per-view company has decided not to show a three-hour election eve special with filmmaker Michael Moore that included a showing of his documentary ``Fahrenheit 9/11,'' which is sharply critical of President Bush. The company, iN DEMAND, said Friday that its decision is due to ``legitimate business and legal concerns.'' A spokesman would not elaborate. Moore has just released his movie on DVD and was seeking a TV outlet for the film. Earlier this week, trade publications said Moore was close to a deal with iN DEMAND for ``The Michael Moore Pre-Election Special,'' which also would...

    Independent Review Finds Bush Records Texas National Guard Officials Missed By Matt Kelley Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - Weeks after Texas National Guard officials signed an oath swearing they had turned over all of President Bush's military records, independent examiners found more than two dozen pages of previously unreleased documents about Bush. The two retired Army lawyers went through Texas files under an agreement between the Texas Guard and The Associated Press, which sued to gain access to the files. The 31 pages of documents turned over to AP Thursday night include orders for high-altitude training in 1972, less...

    The following statement from John O'Neil, member of Swift Boat Veterans and POW's for Truth, concerns a news segment that aired on October 14th on ABC's Nightline with Ted Koppel. "While I have a tremendous amount of respect for Ted Koppel and ABC News I was appalled to learn that ABC News would go to the lengths of traveling to Vietnam to interview three Viet Cong communists in yet a third attempt by ABC to corroborate John Kerry's version of the events that took place on February 28th, 1969. "I would only ask the American people: 'Who do you...

    The DUmmies, knowing in their guts that they will be losing the BIG POLL on November 2, are now trying to make themselves FEEL GOOD by attempting to win the online Post-Debate polls all over the country. They have conveniently listed dozens upon dozens of online polls on this DUmmie THREAD. Anyway, lets allow the DUmmies their temporary feel-good experience for now because after November 2 when the REAL POLL results come in they will be suffering a massive depression. The hysterical rantings of the DUmmies are in Bolshevik Red while the incisive remarks of your humble correspondent are in...

    I never felt any longing to go to Orlando, Florida. What I felt, in traveling south to volunteer for the campaign of George W. Bush, was an obligation. Let me explain by first saying something about the critics of our president. A great many of them like to laugh at George Bush for not reading books and for being uninterested in visiting other countries. But a lot of those same people are guilty of the opposite offense. They prefer to read books and travel abroad rather than actually getting to know their own country face to face. These critics do...

    David Horowitz wrote the following editorial at the invitation of The Philadelphia Inquirer. The Inquirer is running 21 anti-Bush editorials between now and election day as part of its "21 Reasons to Elect Kerry" series. The Inquirer has invited conservative op-eds like this (the first) for the sake of balance. FrontPage Magazine believes in political balance and is happy to see a different viewpoint added to the liberal media. -- The Editors. In 200 years of this nation’s political history, there has never been a hate campaign as massive, as nasty, and as personally vicious as the one directed against...

    I thought this deserved its own thread as Salon is really getting worked up on the buldge in Bush's jacket. Warning: This photo is huge (which is a good thing as you can clearly see the same square shape in Clintons jacket)
