Further evidence that journalists are just pawns of the political agendas of our leaders
Elizabeth Flock recently published an article on her Washington Whispers blog on U.S. News & World Report titled, Ron Paul One Of The Most Corrupt Members Of Congress, Report Finds. After investigating these allegations, I have found that not only is this headline wildly inaccurate, but Elizabeth Flock and the citizens watchdog group, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) have missed a huge opportunity to report on actual ethical lapses in Washington – which I have managed to uncover in less than two hours – in addition to serious ethical lapses by Flock and allegations of partisan political agenda seeking by CREW.
I did glance at a few polls, but more importantly I read editorials in dozens of local newspapers of the battleground states, and put that all together with my own intuitions on voter behavior, election history, and sense of risk (I’ll admit, some of my calls were quite simply gambles – I’ll explain in depth down more).In the end, the four states that cannot be called right now + the one I really called wrong (North Dakota) were the exactsame five states I predicted would be tossups. I knew these were the risky bets: North Dakota especially, lol. That was more of a pot shot hoping-for-a-miracle-to-make-me-look-smart-bet.
So, in other words: I called it!
It is one week from that fateful morning where we will all know who the next President will be (baring a repeat of the 2000 election). Here are my final predictions about the Presidential Election.
I still reserve the right to adjust my predictions as new information comes available, but that will probably only find its way into the “tossup” and “surprises” sections. This total electoral count for each candidate is my final prediction.
