    Wasn't it Ninja who said it's going to be orgasmic when "Milhouse" isn't in the lead a few days after the RNC?

    Well Ninja, I must say that right about now that it looks like you'll have to wait.

    (Waits for the response that polls mean crap, this is only one poll, and of course that when you take all votes into account that the Republicans are leading.) :eusa_whistle:

    We could see an additional bump from Palin but I think whatever she did in her speech was offset by McCain lackluster performance.

    It is amazing how the theme of the GOP convention was to advocate "change" from the performance in Washington when they have been running things in Washington for the last eight years, 6 of which they had control of both the WH and congress.

    They do have a certain ways of spinning things, don't they? Can't they just say:

    "We screwed things up for the last eight years so now we would like to have a chance to fix them."

    It seems a lot more honest, doesn't it?

    Here's some more important figures:

    And, Obama holds a 1% lead, but let's see who's been polled:

    Yes, it does, which is why McCain said it:

    Notice he said WE, not they, but WE. He also pointed out that it takes a bipartisan effort to fuck up the country, not just one party.

    If you remember back only one week, Obama's bounce didn't show until Monday after.

    The RCP is still incorporating numbers from as far back as the 29th. And Milhouse is down to 2.4 :badgrin:

    Be proud of that 2.4 point lead, Robbie! I'm sure the ghost of Douglas Wilder will use it to carry Milhouse to victory :eusa_clap:
