FOX News is a mass of contradictions this morning 11/3/08, telling viewers not to trust the polls (that show Barack Obama with a commanding lead over John McCain) even as their banners read "It's not over yet - polls tightening!" and "Polls show tight race in final days." So, only believe selectively - only that which confirms your most fervent wishes, FoxNews reported.
FOX and Friends are hanging their last best hopes on the poll from Investors Business Daily, who claims to have had the most accurate prediction in 2004. IBD says the race is close, and Gretchen Carlson claimed there are as many as 9-10% still undecided, contrary to an averaging of polls that shows less than 6% have not declared. But the perception of a large number of "undecideds" leaves the door open for a McCain hat-trick. Now that's a poll they can believe in!
From what I gleaned - and I confess to not being studious, just letting it all wash over me like one big wave - most guests were on FOX and Friends to cheerlead McCain, assure voters there's still a chance for him, and to warn of the dire consequences and gloomy future should Obama win tomorrow. They are warming up to the trusted old victimhood roles, bleating about the unfair mainstream media and preparing to be uncooperative and critical again, after eight years of grinning, gloating yes-man-ism.
