Patterico's Pontifications


GOP Campaign Office Trashed

Filed under: Media Bias — Charlie (Colorado) @ 8:16 pm

I fully expect to see this story protesters trash GOP campaign office leading off every network news story and on every front page. Of course, I have yet to see any stories on shots fired at a GOP campaign office.

Does anyone have any doubt, any doubt at all, that if it were a Democratic campaign office that was attacked, it would be all over the news? That it very likely would have been the topic of a question at tonight’s debate?

Media Bias, anyone? The blogosphere reports, you decide.

As you might expect, I’m debate blogging over at thoughtsonline

Rasmussen – part deux

Filed under: 2004 Election — Charlie (Colorado) @ 1:54 pm

I’ve put up a follow up post to my earlier diatribe against Rasmussen’s methodology of using 3-day running averages in reporting poll results. And I use numbers to illustrate my point!

In a shameless bit of home blog traffic pumping, anyone who is interested has to go to the home blog thoughtsonline

BLEG: For those p***ed off at my bait-and-linking, please remember to use nice language when complaining to Patterico when he comes back from his field trip.

Senator Munchhausen

Filed under: 2004 Election — Charlie (Colorado) @ 12:27 pm

Hindrocket of Powerline fame gives us the latest chapter in the continuing series of “I said I did it before I said I did not do it”: Kerry missing his chance to bag a 16 pointer on Cape Cod.

Except for the fact that, according to Hindrocket, “a 16-pointer would be the grand-daddy of all New England deer” and “no one hunts deer on Cape Cod. In fact anti-hunting activists are particularly active on the Cape.”

The above is par for Kerry. “He wasn’t in Cambodia, it’s beginning to look like he didn’t run the Boston Marathon, and now this. Perhaps it’s time we started calling him Senator Munchhausen.” Of course, he can’t play football either.

But I think the real gem is in Kerry’s comment that “I failed to pull the trigger at the right moment”… just the characteristic we want in our Commander in Chief during our time of war, isn’t it?

Saleton’s Wrong

Over at Slate, Will Saletan tries to defend Kerry’s ‘global test’ from Bush’s attacks. I don’t think he does a particularly good job of it.

Edwards – Quick Thinking?

Filed under: 2004 Election — Charlie (Colorado) @ 8:02 am

I don’t mean to single out Captain Ed; his comments about Edwards mirror many others – but I’d like to take issue with the assertion that “Edwards’ success as a plaintiff’s attorney shows that he can think on his feet.” Maybe he is, but just maybe he isn’t…
