24. Oh. GOD...!
"Hummer told JJ that a "very respected survey" showed that Kerry has a lower number than Gore did at this time."

Well duh...

I would think it's hard as hell to beat the NINETY-TWO PERCENT that Gore had in 2000 -- even if the candidate himself were Black...

"Hummer wasn't through whoring though. Started to go on about about * is 'reaching out' to the AA community."


Bush "reached out" to the Black community in 2000 also. You know what it got him...?

...a foot dead in his ass, that's what! SEVEN PERCENT of the Black vote, kids. We (usually) know a snow job when we hear it.

Yesterday, CNN had this big headline: "BUSH DOUBLES SUPPORT AMONG AFRICAN-AMERICANS" What they DIDN'T tell us, and hoped we wouldn't figure out, is that 7 x 2 = 14. FOURTEEN. Yeah, Bush is really kicking ass among Blacks...


You know what's funny? After all this spin, Bush is probably STILL going to pull less than 10% of the Black vote when it's all over. Just you watch....

I'll say it again: Kerry will get a minimum of 52 million popular votes and 312 electoral votes. It won't even be close. In fact, these bogus polls will only make his victory even sweeter...
