Polls everywhere, and not a brain cell in sight. Democrats lead! No, wait, Republicans lead! Wait again, Dems lead, but not by much! Oh crap, Republicans gaining! 37% of left-handed lesbian midget Eskimos say Bush is the Devil! 75% of all statistics are made up! Two out of every four people make up half the world's population!
Here's what I think: I think that all the polls showing Republicans gaining ground are flat out wrong. And do you want to know why? Because I don't think they lost that ground to begin with. I think the media has been pushing the Dimocrat's hopes, trying their best to stop Republicans from even going to the voting booths. And in case you've missed it lately, even the media themselves have been admitting their coverage of the election season hasn't been honest. And let's face it: The media today is flat out hostile to any conservative idea or candidate. They will go to any length to spread Dimocrat propaganda and downplay conservative or Republican gains. They are, in effect, in league with the terrorists that we're at war with.
So what better way to ensure your candidate's success than to downplay his opponent's chances? "Oh, Dimocrat so-and-so has an insurmountable lead. There's no reason to vote for his opponent."
I don't think the Republicans are surging back. I think that the media is just being more honest about the polls.
