You mean without Oprah, Clinton would've won the primary vote by 1.4 million instead of just .4 million?

Very strange.

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

They used some seriously specious methodology. Yet another reason why most economists shouldn't act as political analysts. The felicitously named Professor Ray Fair is one of the few economists who has any credibility in the realm of political science. And, yes, I'm not counting Paul Krugman.

Obama's complaints about Republicans stopping his agenda are BS since he had full control for two years. He can never take responsibility.

Just for fun: Drudge is reporting that Oprah will not have Palin on her show, despite intense interest from her staff and audience.

OPRAH'S STATEMENT: "The item in today's Drudge Report is categorically untrue. There has been absolutely no discussion about having Sarah Palin on my show. At the beginning of this Presidential campaign when I decided that I was going to take my first public stance in support of a candidate, I made the decision not to use my show as a platform for any of the candidates. I agree that Sarah Palin would be a fantastic interview, and I would love to have her on after the campaign is over

Mr Moderate at 54/10 is a total joke, he is a horror.

I think it is very possible that Vladimir Putin could be the Antichrist.  That is nothing more than an educated guess on my part.
