Polls Sagging

This has
to be a bit of a downer for convention celebrants. Kerry's polls are sagging faster than his debotoxified face ...




Considering the fact that average voting Americans are only beginning to pay attention to the choices before them, maybe the DNC should rethink giving Michael "Would you say that to Bush or Kerry?" Moore a chair in the presidential box.

What's with that weird jump in pro-Bush sentiment among women?

PS: why isn't Michael Moore out there protesting the stifling of dissent that's going on in the convention environs? Protestors (who are they anyway?) are being kept well away from the Centre.

My half-sister, the unreconstructed socialist, was once a delegate at an international AIDS convention. As she approached the convention centre, she noticed a protest going on outside, read the signs, agreed with what the organizers stood for, and spend most of the convention outside on the picket line. Wouldn't it be nice if Moore did something like that? Yeah, right.

What Kathy said. Also, how can Michael Moore endorse the DNC in this way after they took down the al Jazeera banner? Stifling of dissent!

I need the help of a Canadian! Could someone please explain to a mere ignorant Texan what effect, if any, the outcome of our presidential election has on Canadian politics?

Greg, I happened to explain this to a local talk show host today over beer. The US election affects us more profoundly than our own.

Elephant ... mouse ... you know..

None of those Canadians who would vote for Kerry must have any trade related economic interests at stake. Kerry is a closed border, country of origin labelling protectionist.

Thank you, Kate. I was wondering because these days, if the US does one thing, we have the impression that the Canadian political establishment sees that as a basis for doing the other.

Your point is very well founded indeed. We just finished watching speeches given by former minority leader Dick Gephardt and Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle. They both punctuated protectionism and promised to do something about jobs "going overseas".

In as much as they are both in the pocket of labor unions, I would think that Canadians should be concerned for certain trade and employment opportunities in the unlikely event that Kerry became president.
