Pollster: Bush 2000 win due to media calling race

A former national pollster argues in his new book that Al Gore really won the 2000 presidential election, but premature calls by the media for George Bush took Gore's victory away.

David Moore's book, "How to Steal an Election," argues Al Gore rightfully won the presidency.

In the interview, Moore characterized his politics as liberal/moderate, though he strenuously argues that it has nothing to do with what's in the book.

Andy Smith, who leads the UNH Survey Center now, said he hasn't had a chance to read Moore's book. It's not unusual to be a Democrat, either in academia or in the world of surveying, Smith said.

But Smith has never heard anyone criticize Moore's work during his decades as a pollster.

"It's impossible not to have political opinions, but it's just a matter of removing those from your day-to-day work," Smith said.


Why is it Democrats are considered suspicious but Rs are not?

Because the GOP is the party of good wholesome family values.

FBI examining possible threat to La. teenager

WASHINGTON -- The FBI is investigating a possible threat against the north Louisiana teenager who was on the receiving end of suggestive e-mails from disgraced former Rep. Mark Foley, a Louisiana congressman said Tuesday.

Rep. Rodney Alexander, R-Quitman, said Tuesday that the young man's life wasn't threatened, "but close to it."

"There are people out there who feel like he is the one who (accused) Foley," Alexander said. "There are some bloggers out there who sent him some ugly stuff."

Apparently, Republicans consider the problem to be the fact that the page outed Foley.

Where are the parents of these pages? Why aren't they en masse calling for Foley's arrest? Sure, he'd make bail in a nanosecond, but at least he'd have to have a mug shot made!

I don't think rehab centers should become sanctuaries like the churches were in the Middle Ages...sorry, churches may still be for all I know. :?

The parents are Republicans. Party above all else.

I have to agree with Shoe on that one. Most of the time pages are kids of rich people, who are somehow or another related/associated to the politican. You can be sure if Billy's parents gave Billy's senator a big ass contribution, they are not so likely to care...that is until their family name is associated with the pedophilia. I am thinking that if a name comes out, then the family will protest, call for resignation, etc., etc., etc...otherwise, they will encourage the boys to "put it behind them" and go on with their life in a bubble.

Just a guess, of course.

You're probably right, shoe and lefty.

Upon reflection, I'm thinking that the parents may be holding themselves in readiness to see what the outcome of this scandal turns out to be. In some ways, perhaps their doing so is more protection for their child than what I was interpreting as a bad decision due to Republican loyalty.

I was told last night that Foley was on the internet an hour after going into rehab. Aparently the internet is not off limits to people there.

I had wondered why the parents were not out with a rope and a fiery torch, too. Hadn't thought about the 'rich people giving donations' business. I hate to think they give their children as donations, but then, I never did understand the republican mind.
