Part of the reason I was stressing out is... like a pain addict, I’ve been exposing myself to the right-wing propaganda of Fox News.
As late as last night, the whoremonger Dick Morris insisted that polls predicting an Obama blowout can’t be trusted... except when they indicate a late surge toward McCain.
I halfway believed that crap.
The mantra of the Obama-haters has been: “The Investor’s Business Daily/TIPP poll was the most accurate of all polls in 2004.” And two days ago the IBD/TIPP poll showed Obama ahead nationally by only two points. That’s within the margin of error!
Late deciders are breaking towards McCain! The TIPP poll is the most accurate poll, and it says that this thing could go either way!
Okay, fuckers. Now that you ruined my sleep pattern, why don’t we look at today’s numbers? In particular, let’s look at the final IDB/TIPP poll before Election Day.
Tell us, TIPP... is the race even tighter? Like, neck-and-neck? Maybe McCain has moved ahead by a point or two?
The final TIPP poll shows Obama leading McCain by eight points.
Two-point lead on Sunday; eight-point lead today. (Need I remind you... the TIPP poll was the most accurate of all polls in 2004.) Looks like the late deciders have broken towards Obama.
And I am breaking towards the liquor store to buy some Veuve Clicquot.
Tonight, while Obama supporters drink champagne, Dick Morris will probably be sucking on a prostitute’s toes.
If only I could sweeten my bubbly with Sean Hannity’s tears.
