    I still say the right wingers who celebrated their little post-palin bump were a bit hasty... the momentum seems a bit different this week...

    Rasmussen Reports: The most comprehensive public opinion coverage ever provided for a presidential election.

    I still say it's all about the debates... so to Ninja, I say... pfffffffffffffffffffft!!

    oh yes...they began celebrating way too early..

    It's kind of funny too considering McCain only took the lead after the convention and hadn't had the lead until that point.

    With all the lies and fake outrage the Repubs have been showing lately I suspect Obama will be in the lead again very shortly and then we'll go back to them saying "the polls don't matter" :eusa_whistle:

    See, that's the thing... the whole "playing the ref" concept is such a loser move, IMO.

    Apparently so do the conservatives that are being quoted. (Arianna didn't write the article).

    I agree with Mr. Cohen's observation... McCain choosing Palin was a violation of everything honorable that McCain stood for.

    The flip side of the coin is that there will be plenty of threads from people on the left crowing about Obama being ahead, when those same peole say that polls don't matter.

    It looks like both sides do the same thing, in terms of reacting to polls.

    Then they're idiots, too.... it's too close for that. And, ultimately, whomever peaks at the exact right time is the one who's going to win.

    Did the financial issues help the dems? Yes. But another issue could help the repubs next week.

    Stupid for anyone to be doing the happy dance.

    I guess Sarah's favorable/unfavorable rating dropped 10 points.

    At the debates, McCain is going to have to answer to all the foot in mouth things he has said. He's not that good at the economy, the economy is strong and he's for deregulating. That's 3 things he is WRONG about right there.

    And then there is the $1 billion he wants to send to Georgia. 1 billion we would have to borrow because we don't have it.

    I'm so freakin pumped up today!!!!

    But don't get too excited. :eusa_shhh:

    :lol:
