Oh, how I laughed with this story from the Court TV (via Yahoo):
A Republican in Colorado fell flat on his face trying to steal campaign signs touting John Kerry (news - web sites) and other local Democratic candidates.


"He already had the sign in hand and was running out of the parking lot when he tripped over a low chain that blocked off the driveway," Stigall said.

Wagner fell flat on his face and was knocked unconscious. His wife, unaware of his accident, remained in the car.
Do I have to vigorously shake my head at this to show how moronic this guy is? Jesus. What happened to freedom of speech? He would rather break the law in multiple ways than allow someone else to express a personal political choice. Pathetic. He just made my list for Jerk of the Year nominees, though the tripping and knocking himself out part loses him points for humor during the deed...

Moving to a new home!!!!!

I won one of the raffles!! w00t!! Needless to say, I am pretty damn excited to be getting this site off of Blogger. Its been a decent starting host, but the publishing issues left a really bad taste in my mouth.

Once I've got the new addy up, I'll post it here. I love the WordPress functionality, and can't wait to get started on it.

Fingers Crossed

Reuters is pissing me off

Why the hell does Reuters bother to publish DAILY polls in the US presidential race? I mean, seriously, the race is so close in the popular vote that daily updates like "Bush takes a four point lead" or "Bush and Kerry are tied" are pointless. Today's headline: Reuters Poll: Bush, Kerry Tied in White House Race. A couple of days ago, they proclaimed a four point Bush lead.

Not only does this completely ignore the electoral college breakdown, these "leads" fall within the expected margin of error in the polls. In other words, Reuters is being pretty fucking stupid, and attempting to show daily swings of opinion which DO NOT EXIST. No one is switching from Bush to Kerry or vice versa at this point. NO ONE. If there are any undecided voters left, and that may be a very big IF, these polls do not reflect such indecision. Stop this crap, Reuters, its making me sick.
