Water, water, every where,
And all the boards did shrink ;
Water, water, every where,
Nor any drop to drink.
The very deep did rot : O Christ !
That ever this should be !
Yea, slimy things did crawl with legs
Upon the slimy sea.
About, about, in reel and rout
The death-fires danced at night ;
The water, like a witch's oils,
Burnt green, and blue and white.
Her lips were red, her looks were free,
Her locks were yellow as gold :
Her skin was as white as leprosy,
The Night-mare LIFE-IN-DEATH was she,
Who thicks man's blood with cold.
Is it there a reason that we aren't seeing a poll showing Rudy ahead of Hillary? Is there some sort of unspoken agreement between the dinosaur media outlets that they are keeping this from us? Hat tip to The Influence Peddler for their posting, Hillary Clinton: Albatross or Millstone, on a story that you AREN'T seeing in the dinosaur media...yet. I predict that after enough of us in the blog world start talking about it, it, like so many other stories that bloggers have broken in the past year or so, will soon be a major talking point by the reluctant Jurassic era outlets...
In Swing Districts, Democratic Enthusiasm Is Harder to Come By

Conventional wisdom dictates that Democratic voters are thrilled with their choices for president, bursting at the seams to rally behind Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (N.Y.), Sen. Barack Obama (Ill.) or whoever gets the party's nod next year.
A recent survey by Democratic pollster Celinda Lake, however, showed Clinton and Obama trailing former New York mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani (R) in the 31 Democratic-held House districts regarded as most imperiled in 2008, and even potentially serving as a drag on those lawmakers' reelection chances.
The poll was conducted in August but has not been previously reported. It paints a "sobering picture" for Democrats, according to a memo by Lake and Daniel Gotoff that accompanies the poll report.
Giuliani takes 49 percent to Clinton's 39 percent, while the former mayor's lead over Obama is far smaller, 41 percent to 40 percent. "Despite Obama's relative advantage over Clinton, both candidates are significantly underperforming against the generic Democratic edge in the presidential and even against party identification," Lake and Gotoff wrote.
Guliani ahead of Clinton by ten points, and the dino's aren't reporting it. It makes you wonder what, exactly, ARE they any good for any more? Kudo's to WAPO for being the first to carry it.
I'm sure there were many, many tight sphincter muscles as the story went to press. I'll let ya'll decide why I would say that.
Personally, and I know there are those out there who don't agree with me, that's their right, but I'm with Fred. I've made no bones about that since BEFORE he was a candidate, even before he started "testing the waters."
For the main stream media to SIT on a story for over A MONTH is irresponsible journalism, in my book.
And if you take a look around at Democrats across the country, and listen to what they are saying, they ain't happy. They were counting on 2006 to be the year that everything changed for them. Be careful what you ask for, you just might get it. What has Congress actually DONE since the Democrats took the majority last election? They've renamed a few post offices, and put forth bill after bill that has been shot down like Mallards and Canada Honkers during duck season.
It's been the season of change for the Democrats, all right. It's been a real wake up call for the country exactly how deeply the party leadership is willing to go to shoot themselves in the foot. Wait, scratch that analogy, everyone knows that TRUE leftinistra's are pro gun control, so they wouldn't be shooting anything but dirty looks and the middle finger while they defecate on the American flag...
Is that REALLY what we want for America?
