PPP Poll: Florida Tightens
A new Public Policy Polling survey in Florida finds Sen. Barack Obama just barely edging Sen. John McCain, 48% to 47%.

Key finding: “There has been some movement in John McCain’s direction with both white voters and Hispanics over the last three weeks. McCain’s margin has increased five points with whites, from 52-41 to 55-39. Hispanic voters, who have swung back and forth both in PPP’s polls and those of most organizations conducting surveys in Florida, are supporting McCain 50-46 after going for Obama by the exact same margin in our previous poll.”

Rick Davis: Palin drives ?liberal feminists? crazy because she?s ?attractive,? ?competent,? and ?happy.?
On Bill Bennett’s radio show this morning, McCain campaign manager Rick Davis claimed that Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin drives “liberal feminists” crazy because “she’s a conservative Republican” who is “raising five kids” while serving as governor. Davis then agreed when Bennett suggested that what drives feminists “more crazy” is that Palin is “very attractive,” “very […]

rickdavis.jpgOn Bill Bennett’s radio show this morning, McCain campaign manager Rick Davis claimed that Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin drives “liberal feminists” crazy because “she’s a conservative Republican” who is “raising five kids” while serving as governor. Davis then agreed when Bennett suggested that what drives feminists “more crazy” is that Palin is “very attractive,” “very competent,” and “very happy”:

BENNETT: I don’t know which drives them more crazy. Let me give you three things that I think drives them crazy, and you don’t have to comment. That’s she’s very attractive. That she’s very competent or that she’s very happy. You know, as a human being.

DAVIS: Yeah, all of the above.

Listen here:

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) has taken to attacking feminists over Palin as well. On the stump yesterday, he declared, “My friends, it’s remarkable the comments of the feminist left about Sarah Palin.”

Believers in Obama

Believers in Obama
Telling a friend that the love of his life is a phony and dangerous is not likely to get him to change his mind. But it may cost you a friend. It is much the same story with true believers in Barack Obama. They have made up their minds and not only don’t want to be confused by the facts, they resent being told the facts. An e-mail from a reader mentioned trying to tell his sister why he was voting against Obama but, when he tried to argue some facts, she cut him short: “You don’t like him and I do!” she said. End of discussion.
