Nitwit Tidbits

Kids, study hard or this could happen to you:

Flip or Election - That is the question. So - we will have an answer this weekend. Whatever it is get it done. But it is Port Arthur....

Typically, Philip offers an opinion even though he's ignorant of the issue. Here are a couple of things he missed.

Four provisional ballots have not yet been certified or counted. The Early Voting Board is meeting today at 3:00 PM, so this issue could be decided by 4:00 PM today.

In the event of a real tie, the Port Arthur City Charter explicitly sets forth the procedure to be followed:

In the event of a tie between the two candidates for any office at said second election, they shall cast lots to determine who shall be elected thereto.

EMT Pay - Low pay to save your life.

I'm not sure about the relevance of this. Does Philip have a clue?

Polling - Even with Barrack and McCain. Interesting.

Either Klein is deliberately spinning polling data, or he's too stupid to realize that there is more than one poll out there.   Personally, I lean towards stupidity as an excuse.

Only one of eight recent polls has both candidates even, while the rest show Obama by at least four points.  Check it out for yourself - unlike Klein, I've provided the links to the real polls so you can make up your own mind:

Crude and Gas - By end of summer $200 per barrel and $7 a gallon. Drill now.

Compare Philip's latest prediction with these predictions in the past two months:

Per Barrel (May 9, 2008) - Estimated at $150 per by August 1. It will make it. And $5 per gallon is coming. There is no stopping it.

Oil (May 16, 2008) - Will go to $200 Per Barrel and Gas Will Be At $5.00 per by July. That is what they are saying. Go figure.

He's all over the road (pun intended)!   Let's not forget Philip's take on what escalating fuel costs really mean:

Gas Prices: Good Economy higher gas prices. Supply - demand.

Does anyone have questions about why Philip R. Klein has no credibility?

Gun Laws - Watch for a slew of lawsuits. It is going to get interesting.

Oh, look!  Philip read my article yesterday!

The Bayou - Who knew? The editor of the Bayou is doing a blog about Southeast Texas from.....San Antonio? What? It reminds us of two "old" professors from LU that taught Political Science and poisoned thousands of minds.

I'm reminded of something else - Sam the Eagle's latest article. Check it out here.

Philip apparently now believes that Sam and I are colleagues from Lamar University. For the record, I have no idea who Sam The Eagle is, nor do we collaborate. 

While Sam and I are dealing with the same subject, our approaches are very different.  I take a more scholarly approach, while Sam pokes fun.

Unfortunately, Philip's probably the only person in Southeast Texas who doesn't that realize Sam The Eagle and his whole cast of cartoon characters are just a reflection of how silly the Southeast Texas Political Review really is. Sam gets an A+ on parody.

Last Week Poll Results :

Of the 51 votes cast, 71 percent thought that Tom Gillian won in Philip's "court of public opinion."  I have several observations:

  • This corroborates my previous statements that most of Philip's readers really don't take him seriously; instead, they're visiting the site for a good laugh.
  • Philip claims he has hundreds of readers every day, yet only 51 people voted in his poll over the course of an entire week. The numbers don't add up.
  • Bob at Texas Gulf Coast Gab gets more respondents on his polls than Philip.  Isn't it ironic that Philip's polls showed up at about the same time that he added Bob's blog to his front page links?

Legislature - Our sources in Austin say that there will be a run on a cell phone ban in cars. Interesting.

Wow, no one saw that coming, even though this will be the third time the Texas Legislature has considered the issue.  As a word of advice, if you see a fat man on a cell phone in a black SUV or Hummer in your rear view mirror, get off the road as quickly as possible.
