We don't hate America - you're the one's trying to "fundamentally transform" it. It was funny that the left thought all we needed was Obama to show up and the world would bow and give him the Olympics, and then he got dumped on his butt in the first cut. (Actually, we were surprised they didn't bow and give it to him - thet gave him the NPP for nothing.) We would much rather have the world come to a city that hasn't been decimated by corupt, one-party rule for decades, like Dallas.

Someone should take a poll asking Americans how they feel about polling. I’m pretty sure our shared distaste for it is one thing about which nearly all of us would agree.

Of all the polling data released in the week leading up to Tuesday’s election, the one that struck me as most revealing came from pollster Scott Rassmussen. Not because it conveyed anything new about voters’ opinions about the candidates, but because it portrayed the seriousness of our political divide.

Mr. Rasmussen asked Americans this crucial question: “Has the upcoming election negatively affected any relationship with a friend or family member?”
