Slur Me Not
Sunday, September 10, 2006 :::
Not Buck looks at the Mason-Dixon numbers and discovers that the late, great "macaca" flap had a minor impact on the numbers.
Russ Potts minor. Margin of error minor.
But in a close race, every point is major. And this will be a close race, if for no other reason than Webb is polling much better than Allen in Northern Virginia and that's where a heckuva lot of votes will be cast. Possibly.
My own crackpot theory is that if gas prices keep heading down, Allen and other incumbents will fare better than the summer of our discontent polling data would have us believe. That and a dollar might get you a weak cup of coffee.
