Canonize Him

Buy here. Buy Often. (personally, I like some of the bumper stickers)

Good Sign?

The NYT is reporting that in Ohio there is a 250% increase on new Democratic registrations!! They performed a county-by-county analysis on registrations since January '04. Republicans have increased 25%. (Florida is showing similar patterns, though no data on other swing states was in the article.)

Is it possible that the polls putting Bush ahead in Ohio are off? I'm not sure what polls are considering 'likely voters' - but you have to figure a 250% increase in Democratic registration could give Kerry a huge bump. I mean, these folks have to be unhappy w/the job Georgie-Porgie is doing.....and Shrub barely eeked out a win in Ohio in 2000 (and we all know he didn't win @ all in FL).

...and I swear to g-d, Kerry better get down to bwass tacks (as Lily Von Schtup would say). Get over Vietnam. Get over Bush's service record. HAMMER on the issues. Today's issues. Bush has got this inordinate amount of luck where fuck-ups from others take the heat off him.

Andrew Sullivan on why Kerry is Losing

I don't care that much for Andrew Sullivan - but every once in awhile he hits the mark, as he does with this Sunday Times article.

I subscribe to the idea of Anybody But Bush - but I as I've said before, I have never warmed up to Kerry (even though at this point he has 100s of my dollars).

Someone might have to watch the debates for me and spoon feed me how it went.

The U.N. says up to 10,000 people are dying per month in the Sudan. The U.S. has said the violence amounts to genocide and accuses their gov't of not doing enough to stop Arab militia attacks.

For g-d's sake - these people have oil!!!! Why aren't our bombers in the air? Why is Shrub not 'liberating' the Sudanese? What is the big deal of losing 1,000+ more U.S. lives?

I've Been Gallop'd

For those who've wondered if there actually ARE Gallop polls - there are!

Saturday morning my phone rings and caller id reads 'Gallop Poll'. Of course, I answer. And answer all their election-type questions.

All about Kerry v Bush. Though a few 'what ifs' - like throwing in Nader's name into the mix. A lot of questions about my voting habits and what I thought would be biggest issue of November. I only got to chose between Terrorism, Economy and Iraq. "I think Bush is a flaming asshole" apparently was not one of the choices.

Crystal (that was my pollster's name) was very nice and appreciative that I stayed w/the survey. I'm assuming many hang-up. I thanked her for letting me participate. Then we did lots of demographic info - age, political leanings, household income.....blah blah blah.

I feel like I got to vote for President twice this year!!
