LOL. J. J. and GoldenBoy at their worst. At least one of them disappeared completely after the election.

I kind of liked how they seemed to think this as a bigger deal than calling Putin the President of Germany. One of those things is actually relevant to the President's job.

Negative news loses votes even if it's meaningless negative news.  Voters are subject to "vibes."

So are you really siding with the uber-hacks here and agreeing that it lost Obama thousands of votes?

No, I'm arguing that your "no one will vote on this so it doesn't matter" argument was just as crappy.  I am sure that it did lose him some votes.  People often vote intuitively, and negative news stories affect their intuitive decisions.  It was the real damage of the Ayres thing.
