An American Carol

Posted by Ryan on August 20, 2008

On October 3, David Zucker is going to release the film An American Carol  picking fun at filmmaker “Michael Malone” (read Michael Moore) who wants to ban July 4th.  The film’s story is in the model of “A Christmas Carol.”  Bill O’Reilly makes a cameo, as does a number of others from the trailer.  Ultimately, I’m surprised they found enough actors in Hollywood to film this thing!

McCain Up 5 in Latest Zogby Poll

Posted by Ryan on August 20, 2008

Up 46%-41% over The One, John McCain finally has the lead in a national poll!  What’s special about this poll is not simply that McCain is up, but unlike many of the polls which have this race tied, the new Reuters-Zogby poll is of 1,089 “likely voters”, rather than the weaker “registered voters” or the worst “adults” in its sampling.  McCain’s even up 5 points when you add in Barr and Nader!

However, with a +/- 3 point margin of error, it’s still pretty much a tie in the worst case scenario, and like Obama, McCain has still not cracked 50%, but this outlier and its trends are a good sign going into the DNC early next week.
