Literacy And Politics
But the thing I found most interesting was their analysis of literacy and politics. They took the top 15 cities that voted for Bush in the last presidential election and the top 15 cities that voted for Kerry. It turns out there is a significant difference between the Republican cities and the Democratic cities.
The Democratic cities were rated higher in 5 of the 6 catagories. When all six catagories were considered, the Democratic cities had an average ranking of 27. The average ranking of the Republican cities was 51.
According to this survey, if a city's literacy ranking is high they will most likely vote Democratic. If a city's literacy ranking is low they will most likely vote Republican.
That's not really a surprise is it?

MPP Challenges Candidates
So the MPP has now issued a challenge to these three candidates, and they've even put the challenge on a truck billboard (see picture above). They say they will donate $10,000 to any of these three campaigns that can prove the lies they are telling about marijuana and its medical use. Here's what MPP has to say:
The challenge was accompanied by a massive billboard featuring the three Republicans with Pinocchio noses. Details are available here.
Muscular dystrophy patient Clayton Holton was rebuffed by this trio at three separate events in New Hampshire this fall. Video footage of Gov. Romney’s snub was widely seen on CNN and YouTube.

Sullivan Makes it Official
Let's be clear: we have lost this war. We have lost because the initial, central goals of the invasion have all failed: we have not secured WMDS from terrorists because those WMDs did not exist. We have not stymied Islamist terror - at best we have finally stymied some of the terror we helped create. We have not constructed a democratic model for the Middle East - we have instead destroyed a totalitarian government and a phony country, only to create a permanently unstable, fractious, chaotic failed state, where the mere avoidance of genocide is a cause for celebration. We have, moreover, helped solder a new truth in the Arab mind: that democracy means chaos, anarchy, mass-murder, national disintegration and sectarian warfare. And we have also empowered the Iranian regime and made a wider Sunni-Shiite regional war more likely than it was in 2003. Apart from that, Mr Bush, how did you enjoy your presidency?
