As we’ve noted before, why anyone puts any stock in anything this stupid motherfucker kos says is beyond us. He got in on the bottom floor of the internet flood of intense far left discontent, gave them a place to vent, shrewdly took on all the co-bloggers he could so as to maximize effect, and is crowned as a genius and a true pundit on what is going on in politics today and the inside scoop due to his contacts with important insiders.
He’s good at organizing a group of gullible raging pussies, I’ll give him that, and enriching himself skimming off the top of a tsunami of political contributions by paying himself and his buddies a hefty slice for administering that cash-flow, but a political guru he’s not.
more recent proof of that:
We were looking for a link to the klassic kos komedy post, where he tells his followers not to worry about the turn of the tide and Obama’s continuing collapse, where he consoles his followers to be “zen”, but he’s famous for deleting posts that make him look stupid in retrospect, and it seems to be gone. Sometimes his posts are so risible they attract ridicule like flies to shite, so he deletes them. This is apparently the case here.
However, here are a couple of klassic kos being spectacularly wrong:
No one wants to watch the GOP convention
Thu Sep 04, 2008 at 06:50:35 AM PDT
Just hitting this again, because I missed it the first time, and if I’M missing stuff on my own site, so are many of you
And Obama’s speech?
The final night drew the largest audience so far for the Democrats (24.5% of all American homes), eclipsing the audience reach the three previous evenings.
That was at least 38 million people, because the numbers didn’t include people who watched the convention on C-SPAN, PBS, or online. We’ll see how McCain measures up tomorrow. Given that everyone — even Republicans — are saying this convention was about Palin, it looks like McCain is ending up a sad, pathetic afterthought.
NEW YORK (AP) – As a television draw, John McCain was every bit the equal of Barack Obama.
The GOP presidential candidate attracted roughly the same number of viewers to his convention acceptance speech Thursday as Obama did before the Democrats last week, according to Nielsen Media Research.
It marked the end of an astonishing run where more than 40 million people watched political speeches on three nights by Obama, McCain and Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin. The Republican convention was the most-watched convention on television ever, beating a standard set by the Democrats a week earlier.
Ok, let’s move on to kos’ next deep thought:
The Palin Bounce
Wed Sep 03, 2008 at 09:00:31 AM PDT
Sure, some of that is from the Democratic convention, but most of the big polling days (especially in the Gallup and Rasmussen tracking polls) have come in the last couple of days.
There has been a Palin bounce … for Obama.
kos: wrong again.
WASHINGTON — The Republican National Convention has given John McCain and his party a significant boost, a USA TODAY/Gallup Poll taken over the weekend shows, as running mate Sarah Palin helps close an “enthusiasm gap” that has dogged the GOP all year.
McCain leads Democrat Barack Obama by 50%-46% among registered voters, the Republican’s biggest advantage since January and a turnaround from the USA TODAY poll taken just before the convention opened in St. Paul. Then, he lagged by 7 percentage points.
In the new poll, taken Friday through Sunday, McCain leads Obama by 54%-44% among those seen as most likely to vote.
These were 2 posts in a row. If kos says it’s day, better believe it’s most likely night.
And this guy is the leading lib blogger and a huge influence on Democrat politicians. May God keep kos healthy and give him a long life.
Oh, let’s look at one more:
Thu Aug 28, 2008 at 10:39:05 PM PDT
When was the last time we saw a speech like tonight’s — a full-throated defense of progressive principles, devoid of mushy “centrist” crap? It didn’t avoid the tough social issues like abortion, guns, or gay marriage. It wasn’t apologetic. Unlike Bill Clinton’s and Biden’s, it didn’t unnecessarily praise John McCain. It drew sharp distinctions between Democrats and Republicans.
It came from the Democratic wing of the Democratic Party.
To be honest, this is the speech — aggressive and unabashedly populist — I expected Biden to give. I couldn’t be more pleased to have gotten it instead from the standard bearer himself.
Tomorrow, the McCain campaign will try to “steal Obama’s thunder” by announcing Pawlenty. Or Mittens.
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha.
Bring ‘em on. This battle has been engaged.
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha indeed!
