Shays Wins, Kuhl So Wrong

Chris "I'm tired of the hate" Shays pulled it out here in CT's 4th, winning over Diane Farrell 51 to 48 percent. The 3 percent spread is 1 point tighter than in 2004. And where's that missing 1 percent? In Phil Maymin's back pocket. I thought he'd score around 3, which doesn't seem unreasonable after examining what other LP candidates landed around the country. Of course, 3 percent seems utterly ridiculous here in the gloom of a gray Connecticut morning.

This just goes to show me what I already knew: polls are totally useless. As I noted last night, the last two polls by Research 2000 and Zogby had Farrell ahead and even TradeSports put her as a solid win around 5pm.

I'd like to ask your forgiveness for my wild prognostications and specious guesswork. Please respect our privacy during this tough period as I spend time with my family. I'd like to remind readers that I am struggling to become an alcoholic and as a child I was inappropriately frightened by a clown.
