    Powerline ^ | 10/01/2012 | John Hindraker
    Today the Romney campaign is trumpeting the latest CNN/ORC poll which shows President Obama with a three-point lead over Mitt Romney among likely voters, 50%-47%. The Romney campaign likes this result, apparently, because it represents a significant improvement over the last CNN/ORC poll, which came out three weeks ago. In that survey, CNN/ORC found a six-point Obama lead.I wrote about the earlier poll here, pointing out that it obviously over-sampled Democrats. A reader calculated that, given other data in the survey, the six-point difference was consistent with a breakdown of D-38%, R-26% and I-36%. I wrote that the most significant...

    Hall of Fame quarterback John Elway endorsed Mitt Romney ahead of Wednesday's presidential debate in Colorado. “Governor Romney is a proven leader with the experience and background to turn around our struggling economy,” Elway said in a statement. “In these tough economic times, we need a president who understands how to get America working again – by standing on the side of taxpayers and small-business owners who do the real job creating. I am endorsing Governor Romney and Congressman Ryan for President and Vice President because I know having the courage to make decisions and tackle challenges is what leads...

    Stunning Historical Discovery By Peter Kirsanow October 1, 2012 4:15 P.M. Cambridge, Mass.--- Celebrated historian Bertram Oxley has uncovered a memorandum from former Japanese Emperor Hirohito to Admiral Yamamoto dated December 6, 1941, showing that the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor was motivated by an offensive film made by Charlie Chaplin ridiculing Japanese cuisine. “Contrary to historical accounts over the last seventy years,” Professor Oxley said in an interview today with the BBC, “What appeared to be a meticulously planned surprise attack was actually a spontaneous demonstration by moderate sushi connoisseurs in the Imperial Navy in response to a hateful...
  • Pelosi a Zombie Leader in New Attack Ad

    Pelosi a Zombie Leader in New Attack Ad Political attack ads mostly follow the same formula: A foreboding voice, a series of damning facts and figures, and a call for action. So what makes an ad stand out? Nancy Pelosi’s challenger John Dennis uses a different tact – zombies. There’s also a sacrificial lamb and an over-the-top impersonation of Pelosi. The creation of Chris Burgard, who also cut ads for Herman Cain during his failed bid for the Republican presidential nomination, the new ad casts the California congressswoman as a cult leader of the living-dead as they prepare to sacrifice...

The newest Washington Times/Zogby Poll, released Sunday, found twice as many voters think Mr. Obama will win Wednesday’s kickoff affair as think Mr. Romney will win it — and among self-identified independents, it’s even more pronounced.

    The Israeli Embassy in the U.S. had a field day after the Iranian state-run Fars News Agency used a made up report by the satirical news site The Onion, and passed it off as what they presumed to be real. The fake report stated that a new Gallup poll showed that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was overwhelming preferred over President Obama by rural white Americans. The Onion headline, “Gallup Poll: Rural Whites Prefer Ahmadinejad to Obama”, was immediately picked up by Fars and hours later the news agency ran an identical story. The Israeli Embassy found this all too amusing,...

    My weekend column muses on the glorious future foreseen by Obama’s speech to the General Assembly. But I’ve also been struck by the following passage on the late Chris Stevens, mysteriously asphyxiated by a spontaneous class-action movie review, as every government official from the Commander-in-Chief to his UN Ambassador has so persuasively argued. At Turtle Bay, the President paid tribute to his murdered diplomat thus: Chris went to Benghazi in the early days of the Libyan revolution, arriving on a cargo ship. As America’s representative, he helped the Libyan people as they coped with violent conflict, cared for the wounded,...

    Today, Special Operations Speaks, a PAC formed by ex-Special Ops officers from four branches of the military, released a cartoon mocking President Obama for spiking the football on the Osama Bin Laden kill. The cartoon depicts Obama as a schoolchild, president of the student council; he has nothing but scorn for a group of students training for military service. Then he spots a girl being shot at by a group of thugs. He promptly orders the other students to do something about it, and after they do, he takes full credit – and actively spikes a football.

The agency on Friday republished, without attribution, a bogus Gallup poll from the satirical U.S. newspaper showing Obama badly trailing Ahmadinejad among rural white voters. According to the story, “77 percent of rural Caucasian voters ... would much rather go to a baseball game or have a drink with Ahmadinejad than spend time with Obama.” The story says rural whites prefer...

The private sector did even better, adding 453,000 jobs versus previous estimates. ... There was one symbolic significance to the revision: If the preliminary figures hold, they would suggest that more Americans are now working than when President Obama took office. That doesn’t mean much for the broader economy — there are still more than...

"Everyone else will be asked to dial down their [sic] expectations of what it means to be an American, again," he warns. It is clear that Baldwin isn't paying attention to his fellow Americans because as a nation we are already lowering our expectations for the future. We are doing so right now, under Barack...

It seemed almost unthinkable that a guy as obviously intelligent as Romney would fail to grasp that, because the cabin is pressurized, opening a window, as Patrick Smith of Ask a Pilot put it to the Atlantic's James Fallows, "would be somewhere between extremely inconvenient and catastrophically dangerous." And guess what: It's still unthinkable. Because Romney was joking.  The Los Angeles Times story that relayed...
