A joke? Or not?
Maybe I have no sense of humor. At first I thought it a really strange way to support Obama--by gleefully hoping that New Orleans would be swamped just so the Republicans' Convention would be interrupted. Then I thought, NO, not even Michael Moore would be that stupid, it must be a joke from the other side. Either way. Poor taste, guys. Then I thought back on what he's done, and . . . I don't know, what do you think? That logo does look a bit phony.
McCain and Palin have gone to Mississippi and I understand that Obama is offering to send his million volunteers with a personal text message.
Anyway, Zogby says no bounce for Obama. Usually a candidate can count on a good 5-10 points. Zip, Nada, Zilch.
- "Republican John McCain's surprise announcement Friday of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as his running mate - some 16 hours after Democrat Barack Obama's historic speech accepting his party’s presidential nomination - has possibly stunted any Obama convention bump, the latest Zogby Interactive flash poll of the race shows.
The latest nationwide survey, begun Friday afternoon after the McCain announcement of Palin as running mate and completed mid-afternoon today, shows McCain/Palin at 47%, compared to 45% support for Obama/Biden.
In other words, the race is a dead heat.
The interactive online Zogby survey shows that both Obama and McCain have solidified the support among their own parties - Obama won 86% support of Democrats and McCain 89% of Republicans in a two-way head-to-head poll question not including the running mates. When Biden and Palin are added to the mix, Obama's Democratic support remains at 86%, while McCain's increases to 92%."
Moreover, it’s difficult to understand the view privately expressed by some Democrats, and stupidly vocalized by a former Democratic national chairman caught on video, saying the hurricane was proof that “God is on our side.” " seen at WSJ political blog.
