Mark
here is a typical post addressing me from the-real_truth. we all know the way this person writes by now, dont you?

@lsmakc
"I used to think from your past rants that you were an alcoholic, but from your most recent posts it is obvious that you are a hard-core drug user. I must ask in earnest though, what are you smoking and where can I get some of it??"---------

this kind of person belongs somewhere else. either clean up your site so others can tread here in a public and restrained forum or accept this miserable, lo brow behavior and join the rest of the muck out there.

in other words, mark, practice what you preach and block this junk. or else accept that you have been taken over by the same anger posted on every fly by nite site and have sunk to their new lo..

ismak,
Stop playing the victim card. This is not a "typical" post addressing you. As far as I have seen this has been the only one.

You talk too much and your posts are incoherent and off topic.

Although I dont condone the way you were addressed, with your long pointless posts, I can see how some one can be irritated enough to address you like that.

I continue to be intrigued by the apparently consistent "bias" in Rasmussen's results. A quick review of the McCain/Obama matchups over the last month indicates that 10 of the 26 poll results put McCain's percentage at 46% or higher. Of these, seven were Rasmussen results and another was from the RNC.

In fact, all seven of Rasmussen's results put McCain's support at 46% or higher. A check of Rasmussen's daily tracking poll suggests the same tilt. Only one day out of the last 30 shows McCain's support under 46%. (45%.)

I realize that some of the bias may stem from Rasmussen's quotas for Republicans in their samples, but the consistent bias (compared to virtually all other national polling organizations) suggests either that their polls should be notated with an "R" next to the results or that virtually all other polling organizations are missing Republicans in their samples.
