I was about to take one of those on line polls that comes in your e-mail when I got to this vile question:

In case anyone forgot, in the primaries John Zogby went out on a limb for Obama – predicting New jersey, New Hampshire and California wins among others. His brother was a superdelegate for Obama. This is the last time I touch a poll from them.

The question occurred to me: why is Zogby loading on racist ammunition?

Any upset need rationalizing?

or it’s the


.Internal McCain polls show him within 1% of Obama on Colorado (9 EV)

In the talked about interview about the coal industry, the most important quote was left out:(thanks vireo)

via hot air

Under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.

This is the clear result of his PLAN. And might explain NBC’s love for him – they are owned by GE!

And also takes us to that other recent revelation – the price signals, remember? It’s also about raising energy prices – as an incentive to good behavior

And this brings us to Biden;s cry for help, remember that?

Here’s the quote that was not sufficiently publicised – he’s talking about the economy here:

“I promise you, you all are gonna be sitting here a year from now going, ‘Oh my God, why are they there in the polls? . . . Why is this thing so tough? . . . I’m asking you now, be prepared to stick with us. Remember the faith you had at this point, because you’re going to have to reinforce us.

“There are gonna be a lot of you who want to go, ‘Whoa, wait a minute, yo, whoa, whoa, I don’t know about that decision.’

So, there it is: he will price all of us out of the use for basic necessities. Remember, energy prices affect everything else – from food to clothing. All of us? Maybe not himself and the rest of the rich people he professes to love so much, but definitely the 250,000-150,000-50,000 middle class people who he pretends to represent.

No need to worry about sharing the wealth – there won’t be any left to share when Obama gets around his plans.

In other words,it’s not just the coal industry he plans to bankrupt, it’s each and every one of us.

Don’t say you weren’t warned (although, thanks to Obama media this is all little known stuff)

This is just one more piece in that puzzle – who owns Obama? Who’s holding the media leash?

I have written about it here

What I will bet my 45 year reputation on is that McCain-Palin will win by at least 42 electoral votes

Now the update:

UPDATE: I have now updated my tables based on the latest RCP averages as of 2:00 PM EDT. Ohio, Virginia, Nevada, and Pennsylvania have edged back up slightly, but are still below the average from two days ago. North Carolina is now a tie and RCP now shows it for McCain-Palin on the no toss up map. The big news is that Florida has come down drastically from 4.2 to 2.5 and is bound to go for McCain-Palin. The stunning news is that Minnesota is coming on like gangbusters. The kind of movement would indicate that Minnesota is quite likely to go for McCain. I will up my prediction from a 42 to a 52 electoral votes margin pending further data.

Joe the Plumber

How’s this for an analysis of OBama’s plan

Barack Obama discovers a leak under his sink, so he calls Joe the Plumber to come and fix it.

Joe drives to Obama’s house, which is located in a very nice neighborhood and where it’s clear that all the residents make more than $250,000 per year.

Joe arrives and takes his tools into the house. Joe is led to the room that contains the leaky pipe under a sink. Joe assesses the problem and tells Obama, who is standing near the door, that it’s an easy repair that will take less than 10 minutes.

Obama asks Joe how much it will cost.

Joe immediately says, “$9,500.”

“$9,500?” Obama asks, stunned. “But you said it’s an easy repair!”

“Yes, but what I do is charge a lot more to my clients who make more than $250,000 per year so I can fix the plumbing of everybody who makes less than that for free,” explains Joe.. “It’s always been my philosophy. As a matter of fact, I lobbied government to pass this philosophy as law, and it did pass earlier this year, so now all plumbers have to do business this way. It’s known as ‘Joe’s Fair Plumbing Act of 2008.’ Surprised you haven’t heard of it, senator.”

In spite of that, Obama tells Joe there’s no way he’s paying that much for a small plumbing repair, so Joe leaves.

Obama spends the next hour flipping through the phone book looking for another plumber, but he finds that all other plumbing businesses listed have gone out of business. Not wanting to pay Joe’s price, Obama does nothing.

The leak under Obama’s sink goes unrepaired for the next several days.

A week later the leak is so bad that Obama has had to put a bucket under the sink. The bucket fills up quickly and has to be emptied every hour, and there’s a risk that the room will flood, so Obama calls Joe and pleads with him to return.

Joe goes back to Obama’s house, looks at the leaky pipe, and says “Let’s see – this will cost you about $21,000.”

“A few days ago you told me it would cost $9,500!” Obama quickly fires back.

Joe explains the reason for the dramatic increase. “Well, because of the ‘Joe’s Fair Plumbing Act,’ a lot of rich people are learning how to fix their own plumbing, so there are fewer of you paying for all the free plumbing I’m doing for the people who make less than $250,000. As a result, the rate I have to charge my wealthy paying customers rises every day.

“Not only that, but for some reason the demand for plumbing work from the group of people who get it for free has skyrocketed, and there’s a long waiting list of those who need repairs. This has put a lot of my fellow plumbers out of business, and they’re not being replaced – nobody is going into the plumbing business because they know they won’t make any money. I’m hurting now too – all thanks to greedy rich people like you who won’t pay their fair share.”

Obama tries to straighten out the plumber: “Of course you’re hurting, Joe! Don’t you get it? If all the rich people learn how to fix their own plumbing and you refuse to charge the poorer people for your services, you’ll be broke, and then what will you do?”

Joe immediately replies, “Run for president, apparently.
