Slur Me Not

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.

"You know what the fellow said: In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they also produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love -- they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock." -- Orson Welles, The Third Man

"The graveyards are full of indespensable men" -- Charles de Gaulle

"Oh, so Mother Nature needs a favor? Well maybe she should have thought of that when she was besetting us with droughts and floods and poison monkeys. Nature started the fight for survival and now she wants to quit because she's losing. Well I say, hard cheese!" -- Montgomery Burns
