Does This Mean I’ve Made It? The Jon Ralston Edition

Jon Ralston was on one of his often hyper-partisan twitter rants insulting Republicans calling them hacks for complaining over voter fraud as if it doesn’t exits.

Ralston’s tweet:

Jon Ralston ‏@RalstonReports   I can’t believe that’s even a story about “swirling speculations” of voter fraud. Swirling speculations by GOP hacks only. Zero evidence.

So I decided to remind him what an ass he was being:

To argue my case for me Ralston sends me the following private message and blocks me on Twitter:

Quod erat demonstrandum.

Something tells me he’s more than a bit temperamental because the lies he told at the beginning of early voting are coming back to haunt him and Nevada may not be as safe as he relentlessly professed.

    Jon Ralston is a smarmy prick with a Napoleon complex. He does have access to a lot of inside information and can sometimes offer useful insights, but personally, he is a schmuck.

    Keith, what are your thoughts about stories like this?

    Is this going to be so rampant it could change the outcome or are we looking at small instances here?

      Absolutely sinister. Depending on how wide-spread this is, it is possible, lo! probable to steal this election. So all the funky polling data that has come, and continues to come, from the left is intended to support the numbers of a stolen obama election. If this is true, immediately I think The French Revolution 1793 The Reign of Terror. A series of violent protests over wages kicked that off. I really hope this e voting machine manipulation, crime is episodic and non-pervasive. If it is true that Mitt’s son bought an e voting machine company as a hedge, right? Lastly, it is NOT a calibration problem and recalibration will have zero effect and the machine will not identify it as an error. It is a SOFTWARE problem. This is evil. Can this even be stopped?

      To be honest I am skeptical of stories like this. I try to wait for an investigation before commenting. Elections officials are honorable people to if there is something to it, it will get aired and that’s when I usually consider blogging about it.

    Jon Ralston suggers from a severe and unresolvable classic Freudian conflict: Penis Envy. No explanation b/c the best part is reading for yourself the DSM r.IV. I don’t participate in Twitter, but if someone does tweet Jon’s recently revealed pyschosis, it would…well make Jon famous or infamous. Cheers.

        Freud is now well-known as a quack. But accusing the guy of penis envy is pretty funny.

    I lived in PA for 18 years, was in the NAVY for (28) years and then came back for (18) years after that then moved in Las Vegas to retire in 2008. PA has Republicans, Libertarians, conservative Democrats and Liberals. I come from SW Pennsylvania. The state is RED, EXCEPT for inner Philly, Pittsburgh and Harrisburg. Pubs AND conservative Dems are PISSED about Obama assault on guns/God ( remember the clinging to their guns and bible) and the killer is his war on coal. With oil/gas fracking providing jobs in PA, NoBama’s assault on oil pissing off a lot of oil workers and their vendors and businesses that support them.

    You NEVER want to piss off a coal miner. My G-Father was a miner for (50) years and helped organize the United Mine Workers. They did NOT endorse NoBAMA this time. Dems enthusiasm is way down this year, Pubs is UP, Pub registration is up and a lot of small business owners are pissed at the “you didn’t build that” comment in PA.

    KeithBacker has provided some good info on PA. Philly/Pittsburgh suburbs and Pubs enthusiasm are key. We do not need BOTH PA and Ohio with Romney taking FL, VA, NC plus WI, CO and NH or IA plus McCain 2008 states. We WILL take one of the two (PA/OH). Their is a 50/50 chance of NV going Romney with Dems way behind compared to 2008 early voting, much better NV 2012 ground game and Heller beating Shelley Berkley might pull Mitt through by 1%.

    A week ago I would have never though PA was in play. In 2010, PA went with a Republican Governor and both state houses went Pub. I feel more comfortable with PA going RED than Ohio, BUT Ohio is doable. I put my faith in the good people of BOTH states and want them RED for mandate reasons. I belief the links below more than weighted polls. Correct since 1980 Barone: Going out on a limb: Romney beats Obama, handily

    Obama has NOT been over 50%. It’s over. He’s toast. Oh, by the way his surrogate (Penny Pritzker) just closed on his $35 Million estate in Kailua on Oahu’s windward coast next to the University of Hawaii. Can you say ” Presidential Library and hookah parlor”

    Hang in there.

      “Obama has NOT been over 50%.”

      Actually, I’m a little worried about this, because Obama just hit 51% today in Rasmussen (nationally, anyway) for the first time since early October:

      I’m assuming this is from Sandy, and I’m worried about how long it will last… (Hope I’m not being out of line here–I know Sandy was a huge disaster and that many are suffering right now…but now that I know that my friends and loved ones are safe, I’ll admit that my thoughts are naturally returning to this election.) This bump was exactly what I was worried would happen, a la Rove’s “comforter-in-chief” comment.

      I also find this (presumably Sandy-based) bump extremely annoying, given that Romney was the first to request Sandy aid through Red Cross donations on his website and e-mail list, while Obama was/is just doing his JOB–not that the media would EVER cover these things in a reasonably evenhanded or accurate way, of course… Obama continues to be the luckiest politician I have ever seen. It’s freaking exasperating sometimes.

      Everyone please tell me that this is a temporary bump that will disappear by Tuesday?!

        DRUDGE has Rasmussen O 49% and R 49%. and Gallup R 49% and D 46%. PA is 47/47 and MI is R 47% O 46%.AND Candy Crowley says “President Romney”

    And last but not least. Virtually everyone is forgetting the 1.5 MILLION secret, stealth voters that no one seems to be talking about. The 1.5 Million evangelical voters who sat out the 2008 elections. Ralph Reed, who started the Faith and Freedom Coalition in 2009 will get the evangelicals to the polls in Iowa, Ohio, Pennsylvania, VA and NC where they are most concentrated. Obama’s pro abortion stance and Obamacare edicts thrust upon christian organizations will be bring them out in droves. A lot of the NON swing states will not be having exit polls because of cost cuts by media outlets so they won’t be showing up in the exit polls but hey will have made their mark.

    Hang in there

    “This poll has a MOE of 2.2% so it could go either way and if Romney gets strong turnout on Election Day he can easily overcome 2 pts.”

    I think Romney will win Ohio, but if he doesn’t it surely won’t be because they didn’t get the Republican vote out.

    Everything I’m reading is that the Reps are going to crush it on Election Day.

    I’m sure someone has mentioned this or it will be mentioned many times again, but Virginia’s polls close at 7 PM.

    If they call that state early for Romney, it’s going to be a good night

      Many of the LSM won’t do Exit Polls in States deep in Romney’s column. They are hoping to keep the bad news of a progressing Romney victory out of the news for as long as possible. If the leftists in states like CA hear that the fat lady has sung, they may stay home and deep six many local candidates.
