We’ll all keep an eye on Gustav.
That said, what about the convention bounce MSM’s been telling us Sen. Obama got following “his historic nomination?”
And following “his historic” cameo appearances “live, on screen” in the convention hall?
And following “his historic” assent and apparition at Invesco’s Greek temple, where his MSM disciples say he excited the multitudes?
And what about poor Sen. McCain’s “desperation” choice of Gov. Palin?
We know she doesn’t own big limousines and huge houses as do Al Gore and John Edwards.
So can she impress anyone inside the Beltway?
What’s more, Palin doesn’t have the vast Washington experience Ted Kennedy had at the time of Abu Ghraib when he fired up anti-Americanism world-wide by declaring on the Senate floor Saddam’s prison system was being run by America’s military.
Much of MSM can’t resist ridiculing her and her children, including Trig, the Palin’s four month old Down Syndrome child.
The MSMers who do the ridiculing say they’re just bringing us “the news.”
But let’s get back to the matter of Obama’s bounce following “his historic nomination.”
From Realclearpolitics.com, the three latest national polls:
Gallup Tracking - - - - - - - - - - 08/28 - 08/30 Obama +6
Rasmussen Tracking - - - - - - - 08/28 - 08/30 Obama +3
CNN - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 08/29 - 08/31 Obama +1
Based on these three polls, it looks like Obama and the Dems got more fizz than bounce out of their convention.
IMO – Still too soon to say anything about a “Palin effect.”
What do you think?
