Nice picture, where'd that come from?

And this is pleasing news. Muahaha.

This brings up another point, people - what is the best way we can thank The Prez for the coming depression, and financial ruin? How about voting for Obama, probably the only man running who can bring something positive to this mess.

I suppose this is good news but I'm a little skeptical of these political polls that claim to find out who American citizens are supporting. I thought it was Political Subterfuge 101 that if you want to make it look like your candidate is leading just poll somewhere where you know you'll get the answers you want. Go poll down in Tinytown, TX and come back and report that 95% of Americans support President Bush! Is the media just trying to make this look like a closer race than it really is because people tend to turn the football game off when its 59-7? Or are there really large numbers of Americans who are still just jumping back and forth after each candidate gives a speech?

If there's the latter, Anon, I'd be worried. Less so, though, if my man Barack gave the last speech before the election. ;)

Don't be too eager to celebrate; it's just one poll, and it's just a few points. To reach any conclusion now is self-deluding.

Obama (who will be here at the University of Miami on Friday, and sadly I will not be able to get in to the sold-out auditorium) needs to keep hitting hard, hitting fast, and staying sharp. He needs to stay hungry, and so do his supporters. 50 days is an eternity.

Chez-
That's great, but what makes me nervous is that Obama always polls higher. His actual numbers are always lower. I would feel more comfortable if it were a 10 point lead. What do you think?
