Ellisblog gets snarky.... 

According to conservative blogger John Ellis, a little bird told him that Bush is doing a lot better in the NBCNews/WSJ poll than in Gallup. If I recall correctly, in the latter poll Bush is down in the slash and burn agriculture area of the mid forties while the junior Senator from Massachusetts is practicing his inaugural speech at 52%. As a result of this new NBC poll, John Ellis claims that he will now use NBC/WSJ as his poll template.

Who said bloggers didn't have intellectual integrity?

Meantime, Kerry is bitching up a storm again about the "lying, crooked" Republicans. Money quote:
Earlier Wednesday in Chicago, Kerry toughened his comments about his GOP critics after a supporter urged him to take on Bush. "Let me tell you, we've just begun to fight," Kerry said. "We're going to keep pounding. These guys are the most crooked, you know, lying group I've ever seen. It's scary."

This is where I say simply this: if Jesus could tap dance, I would call him "Jesus Tap-Dancing Christ!"

Kerry's statement is absolute bilge of course, and more grist for Bush's mill. This outburst is something to put in the "what the self-important, pompous, vainglorious f*%ktard said to make my job easier" file that's in Karl Rove's desk. However, bear in mind that Senator Kerry was speaking to a member of the base vote. After all, why clue people in to the fact that this is not a fight between good and evil, but an election campaign between two American public servants, when you can gin up a member of your base into thinking that Bush Is Hitler?

What's next? Well, a little bird tells me that next up is John Kerry's clear, concise, compelling, but nuanced explanation for his attempts to decrease Central Intelligence Agency funding in the Nineties:
