“Sometimes there’s a little subtlety to anti-Catholic political rhetoric but not this time. This is in your face anti-Catholicism,” he said. “It’s anti-Catholicism is not one point of many. It’s the point.” [story]

Maybe not as incendiary as Obama's appeal that Blacks vote to get even with Whitey ... Okay - it's a push.

PPP v. Rasmussen


Boned Jello
Public Policy Polling, a Democratic firm, shows West Virginia's Democratic governor and Senate candidate Joe Manchin with a 6-point lead over Republican John Raese, 50% to 44%. Two weeks ago, PPP put Manchin up 3 points over Raese, while Rasmussen showed Raese with a 7-point lead six days ago.

The fact that PPP predicts a more Democratic electorate than Rasmussen does explains a good deal of the difference between the two polls.

Rasmussen's partisan spread in its poll a week ago was 48% Democrat, 35% Republican, 17% independent.

PPP's partisan spread is 55% Democrat, 35% Republican, 11% independent.

According to exit polls, Rasmussen is predicting the partisan spread ...
My experience is these are the only two pollsters to pay attention to, based on recent past performance. One of them will be going down.  My money says Rasmussen will be left standing.

2 good movies


Boned Jello

It would be unfair to say that foreign films are superior to American, because what we get here are the award winners.  Still, if you're going to spend the time to find good movies, you can scarcely go wrong with the foreign (subtitled) movies offered on NetFlix.  When I said "unforgettable," I meant that without hyperbole.  A Woman in Berlin is much more than the story of a photojournalist's relationship with a Soviet officer; it's two hours spent in the Hell that was Berlin in the final weeks of the Third Reich.   Monsieur Hire is a masterfully told crime story. Despite the above description, there is nary a nipple to be seen, but it is nevertheless sexually charged, and most importantly has a thrilling ending.

Aside:  I notice that Europa-Europa is available on  Instant Watch.  I think it's one of the best movies ever made.
