Blogger sucks.

It's only Tuesday. The week is dragging.

Not a whole lot happening in the way of news today; the lull before the storm of tomorrow's debate. Bush is currently "hammering" (one of those overused media words) Kerry's statements in the New York Times magazine about reducing terrorism so that, comparably speaking, it's a nuisance. Funny - this was the same Bush who told Matt Lauer in a televised interview that he did not think the war on terror could be won. (A clip that Team Kerry is running in their latest counterattack ads).

The race is still too close to call. Joe Trippi, on MSNBC's Hardblogger section, brings up an interesting point regarding the polls. The data may be skewed, and the reality may be that Kerry holds a lead. Why? Cell phones. Pollsters do not have access to cell phone numbers, and there is an unusually high number of people whose sole phone is their cell. Chief among these - college students and the Gen X crowd - who overwhelmingly vote Democratic.

Ugh. I need a Starbucks. Rugby tonight and I'm still sore from last week.
