    This goes way beyond accusation of skewing, it's rejecting a mathematically-coherent methodology in favor of wishing and fantasy. It's the statistical equivalent of Creationism: "the empirical evidence does not validate my a priori hypothesis, therefore I will substitute a lot of gibberish and my audience who is ignorant of and even frightened by the scientific method will go along with it."

    The C, D and F students have decided that because there are more of them* they can just outvote the A students on matters of reality.

    (* except at Harvard...)

    The GOP has reached its reductio ad absurdum: if math shows Obama ahead, then math is wrong.

    A concise refutation of the latest craze in the Echo Chamber.

    For those Republicans who stick their fingers in their ears and say "la la la" about biology and physics, math was always just a short step.

    In the end the Party would announce that two and two made five, and you would have to believe it. It was inevitable that they should make that claim sooner or later: the logic of their position demanded it. Not merely the validity of experience, but the very existence of external reality, was tacitly denied by their philosophy.

    Well, technically that's still possible.

    You're starting to sound like a C-SPAN right-winger. What I mean by that is they call in and say "I'm a republican, but I support the left." However, if what you say is true, and I am not denying that possibility whatsoever, then it's good to hear we're on the same page when it comes to bailouts. I'm sick of this feel-good mentality. If you screwed up, you pay the consequences. Obviously in the pre-Great Depression time there weren't necessarily options available, but given the plan I outlined earlier, keeping it available but you choose not to take it, and you screw up, you have no one to blame but yourself.

    The only thing he questions now is the decision to hitch his career to Mitt Romney. Probably makes him one of the stupidest men on the planet. Almost as dumb as McCain was hitching himself to the walking publicity stunt.

    Then you obviously didn't understand it, because you didn't realise that I called out BOTH of them. You're so blinded by your democrat religion that you don't have a clear understanding of what's happening.

    If it were true that the 47% that don't pay federal income tax are all going to vote Obama he would win in a landslide (like 75% of the popular vote).

    Walrus, you are a f-ing moron if you believed that. The average salary of a democrat is significantly higher than that of a republican. Sure the republicans have the market cornered on the rich *****-hole business men, but the same is true for poor conservative people. Look at how many of the solidly republican states suck on federal government's *** for all its worth. And those red states would be doubly f'ed if it weren't for a massive federal jobs program called the DOD. You are so brainwashed it is ridiculous. (I can't believe I'm taking the bait, this is an obvious troll)
