90. missing the point as usual
Strangely, the blob quotes all my points, and then chooses to address only the one that he feels he has the best shot at. (Of course it disregards other posts altogether, which is probably best under the circumstances.)

Yes, exactly right, those models don't incorporate polls. There are articles about that sort of thing, you know (don't you?). But the models indicate that historically speaking, Kerry was struggling against some heavy disadvantages just to do as well as he did. The whole notion that Kerry was headed for inevitable victory distorts the polls and ignores other evidence altogether, while inventing evidence that doesn't exist (like the "50% rule").

People can believe it if they want. But if they think it's science, they are whistling past the graveyard.
