Great news! I'm going to get a one on one meeting with George Bush. Turns out
he's got his hands pretty free at the moment. Except for the bombing Syria - but
that's just a bit of crazy business. You know -- might as well use your
executive powers to do something fun in the final days in office. Well that's
what Dick's told him, anyway.
Obama now has a 12 point lead on average in the states that Kerry took in 2004,
according to Zogby's daily tracking polls. He's 8 points ahead in Virginia
(where Sarah Palin has been mostly campaigning), and 5 points ahead nationally.
And he has a 19
point advantage on voters who have pre-polled.
The race is narrowing, but it
seems increasingly likely Obama will be the next democratic President to be
ahead in all the polls but then mysteriously not elected on the actual polling
day because of thousands of unanticipated votes for Republicans in Ohio and
Florida, using their untraceable computerised voting systems. Or least, that's
where the super-smart money is going.
The big news today is the half hour
paid advertorial television program that Barrack Obama is running on most of the
major networks at prime time tonight (8pm). I think this bodes well for the
American political system. I've always thought that purveyors of advertorial
content should be running the country. I imagine people like Tony Robbins and
that guy who can bust abs with less than eight seconds work out per day are
watching closely. If this Barrack Obama gets up, expect to see the Sarah Palin
Workout Video coming to a late night television spot near you.
which, many people are saying that Sarah Palin has "gone rogue". To be fair, she
was actually brought in as a "maverick" choice, so it might just be a cunning
Machivellian plan by the McCain campaign to keep some distance between him and
were at a rally with her as the main attraction yesterday, and one guy started
yelling "Sarah 0-12" and then the whole crowd started yelling "Sarah 0-12". I'm
not sure they realised that launching the 2012 Presidential campaign even before
they've lost the last one is not considered the proper etiquette. And I'm
certain they didn't realise that 12 doesn't need an 0 in front of it. But then,
"Sarah '12" just doesn't have the same ring to it. Or
Or perhaps they were just referring to how far behind she
was in the polls.
