Ah . . . Sunday

Sunday is a day of rest, a day to sit around in your bathrobe, drink coffee, and eat biscuits, and a day of frenzied political reading and watching. This morning, during Good Morning America, I discovered that (according to ABC), Bush leads Kerry 50-46. The Gallup Polls from a week ago show Kerry leading 49-48. The American Research Group provides better data, also showing Kerry leading, but their polls are from the 4th. Even the USA Today Poll shows Kerry ahead at the beginning of the month. I know there are rumors on the "internets" that these polls are inaccurate, but the average Jane pays attention to these.

UPDATE: Found this lovely site via The Volokh Conspiracy for an up-to-date view of the polls.

For your reading pleasure this morning, an article on Seymour Hersh via Bitch, Ph.D.. And this New York Times article, so appropriate for Sunday about how Bush lets his evangelical religious views guide what he does as President. You'll find some similarities in what Hersh says and what some of those close to Bush say about the way he runs the White House.
