Despicable Reid: the pathological lies and corruption of Senator Harry Reid

Has the New York Times been caught playing with its poll numbers in U.S. Senate midterm races?

Endangered Species: Democrat Senators
I thought this was sort of stinky when I first saw it this morning...

I checked Rasmussen and it had a poll from February showing Tom Cotton five points ahead of Mark Pryor.  So the idea that Pryor is now ten points ahead of Tom Cotton now really does not make a lot of sense.

Jim Geraghty is questioning this.  One of Jim's readers notes that there is shenanigans afoot in the NYT's poll cross tabs:
From the poll's crosstabs:  
Of Arkansas poll respondents, 27% claimed they voted for Romney in 2012, 26% for Obama, 8% for someone else(!), and then some don't knows, didn't votes, etc. Actual Arkansas result in 2012: Romney 60.6%, Obama 36.9%. This looks like a very unrealistically Dem-heavy sample. That does seem to be the "All Persons" breakdown (they didn't provide separate stats for Registered voters) but still there's no way that equates to a representative sample. 
The other states in this NYT poll are similarly very skewed toward underrepresenting Romney voters. The Kentucky sample reports that 31% voted for Romney, 28% for Obama. Romney won Kentucky 60.5% to 37.8%. Louisiana poll breakdown is even more skewed, 31% Obama, only 28% Obama. But Obama lost Louisiana 40.6% to 57.8%. North Carolina rounds out the superfecta: poll 38% Obama voters and only 31% Romney ones, though Romney won NC 50.4% to 48.4%. 
I could conduct a poll showing that McCain would beat Obama by ten points in 2008, if I started by suppressing the weight of 2004 Kerry voters by 30% and inflating the weight of 2004 Bush voters by a similar amount.

And Arkansansans do the right thing: Vote for Tom Cotton

Women eating salmon Rule 5

Both Chip Ahoy and I noted the return of millions of salmon to Pacific Northwest rivers due to the work of one man who promoted adding iron sulfate to the ocean.  So in the Rule 5 spirit, here are some images of beautiful women eating salmon.

Here are some women cleaning salmon…

Why Elizabeth Warren won't run: Hillary's cabal won't let her off the reservation

Clintonistas: Know your place Half Breed...
American Power: CBS News gushes over Elizabeth Warren, want her to run (she won't if Hillary says not to run).  And CBS News is "ideologically entrenched"
And I am not making fun of Native Americans, I am making fun of a poser liar known as Elizabeth Warren

Tom Cotton for U.S. Senate (Republican-Arkansas)

Mark Pryor needs to retire from the Senate.  And Harry Reid needs to no longer be the Senate Majority Leader.  Well done Sir!

AoSHQ had this gem of lamestream media bias:  Is David Gregory crazy or just an unlikable jackass?  That is of course a trick question, the answer is both!
Chip S. had this comment:
