Frank Rich’s column today is very interesting.

In discussing the Obama/McCain race, Rich brings forth the following points about the latest polls, since Senator Straight Talk is pushing hard for Hillpatine’s female followers:

But while the McCain campaign apparently believes that women are easy marks for its latent feminist cross-dressing, a reality check suggests that most women can instantly identify any man who’s hitting on them for selfish ends. New polls show Mr. Obama opening up a huge lead among female voters — beating Mr. McCain by 13 percentage points in the Gallup and Rasmussen polls and by 19 points in the latest Wall Street Journal-NBC News survey.

How huge is a 13- to 19-percentage-point lead? John Kerry won women by only 3 points, Al Gore by 11.

Now, let’s go over this again. Obama’s leading anywhere from 13-19 points, which is better then BOTH the previous Democratic Candidates for President, yet somehow, this point seems to be getting lost in translation. After all, if Obama is doing better than the 2 previous Democratic Candidates – two White guys – then, how could the MSM pimp their memo that Obama has a problem with ‘ working White people’. Then how could they pimp the ‘ does he need Hillpatine as VP ‘memo?

The real question is how Mr. McCain and his press enablers could seriously assert that he will pick up disaffected female voters in the aftermath of the brutal Obama-Clinton nomination battle. Even among Democrats, Mr. Obama lost only the oldest female voters to Mrs. Clinton.

Oh Mr. Rich, the same way the ‘press enablers’, though Chuck Todd announced the night of the Wisconsin Primary that it wasn’t mathematically possible for Hillpatine to catch Obama in Pledged Delegates, they went right along with the moving of the goalposts, perpetrating the fraud that she could actually win the nomination by any way other than THIEVERY.

If they told the truth – that NO White Democratic candidate has gotten a majority of the White vote since 1964, then Obama not having it wouldn’t look so bad, would it? If they told the truth, that Obama led with White women (by 7 points) – I thought it was bogus for them to leave out that he led among White women, but trailed among suburban White women. Maybe it’s just me, but have they’ve really done that before – suburban White women as a category? If they told the truth – that though he was losing White men by 20 points, it was BETTER THAN Kerry (25 points) or Gore (24 points), then, gasp, where would their narrative of the Black guy’s in trouble go?

Mr. Rich also points out the following:

“NBC Nightly News” was so focused on these supposedly devastating Obama shortfalls that there was no mention that the Democrat beat Mr. McCain (and outperformed Mr. Kerry) in every other group that had been in doubt: independents, Catholics, blue-collar workers and Hispanics. Indeed, the evidence that pro-Clinton Hispanics are flocking to Mr. McCain is as nonexistent as the evidence of a female stampede. Mr. Obama swamps Mr. McCain by 62 percent to 28 percent — a disastrous G.O.P. setback, given that President Bush took 44 percent of the Hispanic vote in 2004, according to exit polls. No wonder the McCain campaign no longer lists its candidate’s home state of Arizona as safe this fall.

If looking at this poll, wouldn’t this stick out to you? All the DIFFERENT groups where Obama is leading at this point? But, very little notice to this, and obsessing over the ‘ White Suburban Women’.

Final point of reference:

There are many ways that Mr. Obama can lose this election. But his 6-percentage-point lead in the Journal-NBC poll is higher than Mr. Bush’s biggest lead (4 points) over Mr. Kerry at any point in that same poll in 2004.

Let’s repeat that:


There are many ways that Mr. Obama can lose this election. But his 6-percentage-point lead in the Journal-NBC poll is higher than Mr. Bush’s biggest lead (4 points) over Mr. Kerry at any point in that same poll in 2004.

Lesson for today: don’t fall for the MSM’s complicitness in hyping Senator Straight Talk. If you see a poll come out, search through it; search those crosstabs for the REAL STORY. Perpetrating frauds is GOOD FOR BUSINESS for them….for reference, just look at the Primary ‘ Race’, post Wisconsin.
