58. zing! echo-chamber, yes, often...
When I got to DU, I was told I was about to be tombstoned a lot. But if you keep your temper (more or less), and you are otherwise within the rules, it doesn't happen. And it gradually dawns on you that there are a lot of folks who agree, but are tired of arguing the points (although there have been some excellent counterexamples on this thread). But if no one enters the argument, then we gradually get dumber and dumber. (Some of the folks making the arguments are quite smart, but....)

You will find, if you haven't already, that quite a few DUers think that 'properly understood' the late polls showed Kerry ahead. Sigh.

I might quibble with you about "undecideds" -- I have to think about it.

Thanks for joining us. My hat is off to you for taking the time to engage the OP point by point.
