Could this be prophetic?...

SNL did this great “Road to the White House” spoof on Senator Biden's and Rep. Murtha’s latest gaffes. Ironically enough, the two major gaffes here, may have already had consequences that are only beginning to show up in the polls.

The video is at: it's worth a look, if you haven't seen it - VERY funny.

Breaking: New poll shows Russell over Murtha, 48-35

A Pennsylvania source has just leaked me brand spanking new poll data showing GOP upstart Bill Russell leading John Murtha among over 800 probable voters by 48-35.

This comes on top of the Susquehanna poll showing Murtha ahead of Russell by 4 points, within the margin of error.

The new poll is from Dane and Associates, which surveyed over 800 probable voters, randomly selected to reflect the district makeup, on Wednesday night.

The new poll shows that 381 of the 800 (47.6%) respondents favor Russell, while 279 (34.8%) support Murtha, with 141 (17.6%) undecided.

AND according to Rasmussen:

In Pennsylvania, John McCain has pulled back within single digits of Barack Obama.

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of voters in the state shows Obama with 53% of the vote while McCain picks up 46%. That seven-point margin is half the 13-point advantage Obama enjoyed early in October.

Not coincidentally, Obama’s current lead is matched by a seven-point advantage on the question of which candidate is trusted more on the economy.

However, while McCain has closed the gap, virtually all the movement comes from an increase in his support rather than a loss of support for Obama.

So, is it possible that Murtha’s happily calling his constituents “racists” and “rednecks” is going to cost him his seat to a Marine, Iraqi vet, William Russell and, in the process, swing the tightening PA contest to McCain?

We can only hope.....We’ll see soon enough.

The best way to reduce support for these whacko Democrats is to just let them open their mouths. Notice that Obama is never heard without strict controls. The one time that he slipped and spoke without controlled conditions, he let the cat out of the bag about spreading around the wealth.

Actually Angel, Murtha may be doing more GOOD for Conservatives (by making a fool of himself) than some Conservatives are right now.

True enough UJ.

I like the "sneak preview" of the way an Obama administration would govern, with Helen Jones-Kelley, Ohio's Head of Family Services Approving a records search on Joe (the plumber) Wurzelbacher.
