When I was in the military there were no shortage of dumb hicks who voted Republican jus' cuz, but the easiest way to draw the ire of just about everyone is to put them through extended deployments in the gulf.
I think your theory is complete horseshit, to be honest. To commit good money to a cause as unrealistic and idiotic as that is just dumb; only the most demented among us could come up with something like that.
Peter, if a point can be made one way, it can be made the other as well. I don't see how a person can not know him, and say that RFK is NOT similar to Edwards, but a person saying that RFK and Edwards share similarities is perfectly okay.
Seems like we are applying a rather convenient double-standard there.
I'd like to see more polling on NH...especially given that any registered voter can vote in either primary(which is my understanding). If indies are really breaking hard for Dems, and then more so for Obama than Clinton, the real numbers might be worth a look.
It would be interesting to see a poll with both Democrat and Republican choices, given to all registered voters, to see what the primary might really look like if it were held today.
I was still skeptical of the value of the polling. Its way too earlier, and personally I'd rather my guy made his move and hit his peak around December and January rather than July. Lot of campaigning left to do.
As usual you've completely missed the point. There have been a rash of self-proclaimed 'black female' Clinton supporters who have posted diaries here that have no better than an 8th-grade level of writing, which miraculously improve to at least 11th-grade level in the comments.
I don't doubt that Clinton has support in the black community. What I doubt is the authenticity of some of the diaries written here.
Either way, for this diary to have earned a 'great diary' accolade from you speaks to the low-degree that your opinion should be taken into account.
In this case, as with my statement, the total target population I'm referring to is the readership at MyDD. In other words, a self-selected sample is a more than adequate indicator when talking about this particular community, as I was.
I guess Clinton supporters are really rare around here. If an Obama supporter wrote something that bad I'd have been really upset that they were doing more harm than good.
In this case its lucky though, because ironically you are getting two for one here. One faux-black woman diarist and Clinton supporter, two profiles from faux-black woman supporters. Similarities to user 'bebe' couldn't be more obvious here.
