    Would have thought the USN would have been higher for 'McNasty.'
    At Coretta Scott King's funeral in early 2006, Ethel Kennedy, the widow of Robert Kennedy, leaned over to him and whispered, "The torch is being passed to you." "A chill went up my spine," Obama told an aide. (Newsweek)

    As much as I don't like polls, this is one I can actually believe. It does not surprise me that most of the black military folks are voting for Obama.

    I guess some of those unenlightened fools who voted for Obama do not understand that with an Obama presidency that they may be voting themselves out of a job. Democraps have severely cut troop levels under Clinton, Carter, etc.

    We've been getting hit every week by telephone 'pollsters,' who really aren't pollsters. They'll run down a list, "Who would you rather have as President?" Then, they'll play up obamessiah and cut McCain.

    We've already voted absentee - for McCain - since we aren't going to be around come election day.

    I'll take their poll, agree that the Messiah sits at the right hand of God, and then tell them near the end that we've voted Republican. The last one got a little pissed after spending 10 minutes with the fake poll crap only to hear she'd wasted her time.

    And with this information, I'm sure a memo has been sent out from the DNC to all battleground states listing all the little technicalities that can be used to disqualify a military ballot. :mad:

    And this all means that the Democrats' lawyers once again will be fighting tooth and nail to disqualify as many military ballots as possible.
