We all knew it was just a matter of time. The “we” are folks like Commentary who have called out the GOP haters. The demonization and hating of U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi by the GOP. This is what you get. Phony arse GOPers who are reaching out to Speaker Pelosi.
Donald Trump’s punk kid junior reminded the world that his family is pure trash with his tweet on Paul Pelosi. The Trump family is that dog sh_t that you accidentally step in.
I did not know this. The connection between Julia Roberts and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Dr. King paid the hospital bill for Julia’s parents when she was born in Georgia in 1967.
Here is the story and it is mind blowing: Julia Roberts connection to Martin Luther King Jr., Coretta Scott King goes viral (today.com).
The Chron has a story on political polling. Polling is not as accurate as it once was according to the story. Here is from the Chron:
Political polling was already in bad shape, but recent elections in Texas have exposed even deeper problems that pollsters have been struggling with for years, producing results that have been almost comically far from actual at election outcomes.
The state’s large Hispanic population, booming voter registrations and a high number of hidden Trump voters have combined to push pollsters toward less and less certain guesses at what true samples of Texas voters look like.
Long-time Texas Republican strategist Karl Rove summed it up earlier this month during an event in Dallas.
“Polling is broken, let’s just be honest about it,” he said. “We used to endow it with scientific precision that it probably had some of, but now it’s a crapshoot.”
In 2020, a University of Texas at Tyler poll just days before the election had Joe Biden winning the state over Trump by 3 percentage points while others like Quinnipiac University in Connecticut and Emerson College in Boston had the race tied, even though Trump won by almost 6 points. Two years earlier, there were at least 14 major polls of Texas voters during the big U.S. Senate race in the final four months, but only two ever showed the race within the 3 percentage points it finished at.
It was even worse in the 2018 Texas governor race where the final seven polls in October had Gov. Greg Abbott up by an average of 18 points. One poll by Dixie Strategies had him up 26 points when the race really finished at 13 points.
Here is the entire read: Contradictory Texas governor polls point to growing blind spots (houstonchronicle.com).
Interesting to say the least.
My Dad got a hate mailer this past weekend. It is an anti-trans piece that attacks President Joe Biden and progressives. Disgusting. It came from the America First Legal Foundation. Horrible.
How many of you caught the botched National Anthem before World Series Game 1 Friday evening? I caught it right off the bat. The fella should have sung it facing centerfield where they have the lyrics on El Grande.
The Chron Sports Section team picked us to win in five.
We have had two very exciting games.
Commentary has candy ready for the trick-or-treaters this evening. I will keep an eye on the front door and Game 3 at the same time.
