The First Hundred Days

*Yawn*

All the hundred days spin could've been written back in November. Short of buggering a 6 year old on live TV, there's no way Obama could fail with the press. It's been painfully obvious that the hundred day report card has been in the can for months.

IMO, this summary has a lot more value:

On Bipartisanship

One more seat in congress in a district where R registrations outnumber D's by 70,000

That's a lot of R's voting D.

I'm sure the polls in Venezuela show that everyone loves Chavez, too.

Since you're so in love with polls, here are some more numbers for you from Rasmussen:

53% say the next president is likely to be a Republican.

58% say releasing the CIA memos endangers national security.

60% say the government has too much power and too much money.

Wonder how Rasmussen polled in NY 20

There's polls and then there's the polling station. Some polls lead to big suprises at the polling station, others end up just where they predicted, hmmm.

This hits it pretty good -- 100 days, 100 mistakes.
