Was that in the ads themselves? I find that to be a funny way to criticize the polling company considering that John Kerry has been talking up his “Christian credentials” of late. Does that mean Kerry is inherently untrustworthy because he is also a Christian?

Paul September 28, 2004 Sorry Sean, I put in the wrong link — I was typing way faster than I’m qualified to do.Try this Link I updated the link above, thanksP Bill K September 28, 2004 Do you disagree that Gallups methodology looks a bit funky? Paul September 28, 2004 Bill if you would like to add your name to the list of delusional people in the world, feel free. -S- September 28, 2004 Gallup, SR., who founded the Gallup Poll, is retired. HE is the “evangelical Christian” that sends fear and dread into the heart of Liberals…but he’s not the Gallup Poll of present day.And, anyway, if Sr. WAS still responsible for the Gallup process — which he’s reportedly not (he’s retired, remember) — pretty sad statement that the guy’s religious beliefs are not his to hold, as per “liberals” in the U.S.The thing that Liberals are missing, the main point driving all this freneticism by Liberals (next it’ll be that Republicans are the Invading Overlords from Deep Space, because they’ve already pretty much decided that about Karl Rove), the main thing that Liberals are missing in our times is that PEOPLE DON’T LIKE KERRY AND AREN’T IMPRESSED WITH THE DNC.There’s a Liberal base, yes, who are sticking with the DNC regardless, and deciding to vote for Kerry by looking the other way and doing it anyway — a lot of Demos don’t like Kerry is what I’m saying but are going to vote for him out of the “hate Bush” sentiment — BUT, Kerry turns people off. Generally speaking. But, generally speaking, Kerry is sorta creepy and he creeps people out. Let’s be frank about this: he’s creepy. -S- September 28, 2004 And, to be really frank here, everyone I’ve ever known who smoked grass — as George Soros does, from what he says about himself and his life — and does so often and with any regularity, IS VERY PARANOID. They get very paranoid, often experience delusions of various emergent sorts, generally always have these things that “MUST BE” done or enacted or whatever.Soros’ insistence about this “Bush must not be elected” campaign of his seems way beyond normal, way past some point that makes a lot of sense. I mean, dislike a candidate, campaign for whoever you chose, but, to go to such elaborations as has and does Soros, speaks more to me about Soros than anyone else. And, he impresses me as someone who is very, very, very paranoid. Unfortunately, like some other billionaires I can think of as I type this, his wealth prevents most people from accurately assessing the individual because they only perceive the personna that the wealth creates, the capacity to purchase that the personna promises.And, about Soros’ insistence on this undefined concept of his, as to this form of “democracy” he says is so important as to create a near world-wide emergency of the human condition, I’m thinking that what Soros has in mind is something else altogether, but it’s not democracy. Because, if for any other reason, democracy is that icky process that includes all the negatives, takes into consideration a lot of messy details and difficulties, and what Soros seems to think “democracy” is is something you buy. Paul September 28, 2004 Bill- purely by coincidence I found another link– check the update. dudemasicus September 28, 2004 As far as the hurricanes go, Garofalo nailed that one a couple of days ago.http://www.dudemasicus.com/2004/09/roves-secret-weather-machine.html thedragonflies September 28, 2004 I love it when they panick. They do stupid things, like die their candidates orange. Jim September 28, 2004 These people have reached the level of absurdity. I made a comment somewhere on Wizbang about George Soros’ allegations regarding Gallup, including the evangelical Christian comment. So now the beast is starting to eat ita own tail. Wes September 28, 2004 Sadly, I had to visit moveon.org to find the Gallup ad [.pdf format] Funny HAHA September 28, 2004 I love it when they panick. They do stupid things, like die their candidates orange.ROFLMAO joey September 29, 2004 Speaking of Soros I have been wondering if he’s capable of running up the price of oil futures. He’s meddled in currency markets in the not so distant past to affect elections overseas.
