Polls and the Polling Pollsters Who Poll Them

So John Kerry now "beats" Bush according to the latest polls. Wow. That's a stunning acheivement since we've had nothing but ABB for six months running from Big Media and the New and Improved Seven (formerly The Nine) -- who currently are hyping ABB deficit disorder. And to think that President George W. Bush hasn't run a single commercial yet. Like, wow man.

I'll take bets now from anybody who wants to take Kerry and spot me 5 percentage points. Or could it be that this kind of polling is really just a colossal waste of time and money. Those pundits who claim this means Bush is vulnerable are frankly making the same kind of mistake as those who whine about Al Gore getting more votes. If the game was about being in first place on February 2, I think President George W. Bush and Karl Rove might have played it a bit differently.

It's still a blowout in November from where I sit.
