Majority Watch polling numbers

On October 30, 2006 By

Kilroy is way in front, 53% to 41%. Space is up 51% to 42%.

This is priceless.

Over the sci-fi show’s first two seasons, many conservatives saw it as a pitch-perfect metaphor for the United States? post-9/11 battle against Osama bin Laden and his Muslamonazi horde. Galactica, which has become something of a surprise hit on the Sci Fi Channel, takes place in a post-apocalyptic universe where humanity has been decimated by a nuclear strike launched by an enemy race of robots known as the Cylons.

From yesterday’s Dispatch:

Now comes GOP gubernatorial nominee J. Kenneth Blackwell, trailing badly in the polls, with an October surprise against Democrat Ted Strickland. With homophobic bloggers serving as campaign adjuncts to spread rumors that Strickland, married for 18 years, is gay, Blackwell accused Strickland of harboring a pedophile on his payroll.
