If You’re Scoring at Home

Look at that over there… No, not there. There! Yeah, that. New polls are in, and by the judgment of the good people at electoral-vote.com, the senate is tied at 50-50, and in the house the Dems had a nice surge since yesterday and now lead by 44 seats. I’m writing it down so we can track it over the next seven days. Yeah, I’m exactly that lame.

It should be noted, however, that these polls fail to take into account the security-free electronic voting booths; vote burning, shredding, tossing, or hiding by the GOP; voter disenfranchisement, intimidation, or ID card requirements; and John Kerry failing to keep his fucking trap shut.

In other words, they’re meaningless.

Dear DoG: can you explain why Joe Lieberman's Connecticut is still considered "Strong Dem", despite the fact that he's running as an Independent, the DNCC is throwing piles of money at his opponent, and the guy is steadfast in his support of Dubya's Folly? I'm not kidding; I'm really curious.

I believe it has to do with the asphyxiating nature of our strict two-party system of government. Even the liberal elite media can’t escape its grasp. Since it’s a Dem state now, as long as the state isn’t being taken over by a Republican, it will be considered Democratic. And even though Lieberman is a total douche with absolutely no clue about anything, he’ll still probably caucus with the Dems; he’ll still probably vote with them most of the time. He’ll just yammer on about bipartisanship and cooperation and about holding his ankles just so to make it that much easier for Bush to slide his dick in nice and slow.

Anyone else have any questions?
