Well, THAT was fun. There was a dead rat in the electric rat-zapper lest Tuesday, so I went out into the alley to dump him where a hawk could find him and have some breakfast. Crossing the concrete-paved alley I stepped (barefoot) into a slick spot where the night’s rain runoff was flowing, slipped and fell backwards, landing on the back of my head.
In the flowing water runoff.
Lump – yes.
I don’t think so actually, a mild one. Gone in two days
Pain – 7 on a 10 scale.
Damned lucky I didn’t break anything.
I had to struggle to my feet as quickly as I could, because the alley has a 20 – degree down-slope, and people tear down it as they leave to go to work and wouldn’t have been able to stop on the rain-slick concrete. I would have been run over for sure if I’d lost consciousness, or just lain there and waited to recover some.
Anywhoo – a quickie.
Donald Trump’s favorite pollster puts him 12 points behind Joe Biden Daily Mail ^ | 6-15-2020 | Nikki Schwab Posted on 6/15/2020, 10:43:18 PM by ZagFan
The poll comes the same day the Biden campaign announced an impressive $81 million fundraising haul in May.
Rasmussen’s survey with Just The News found that 48 per cent of registered voters nationally liked Biden, while just 36 per cent said they’d support Trump in the November general election.
Well, this sucks.

Now RASMUSSEN is “fake news”?
This means one of two things – either Trump is headed for a Carter-like shellacking by a Reaganesque rout at the hands of Biden, or pollsters have created a very bad model of the electorate, perhaps because of the Trump’s hidden support which is hard to poll. The first alternative is somewhat more likely than the second.

What could have happened to that reliable GOP-leaning outlier provider??
Except this is not the Rasmussen poll. Scott Rasmussen sold his poll, which keeps his name and now does a new poll for an outfit called Just the News. This is a joke. Biden may well be ahead, but Trump doesn’t have 36%. An utter embarrassment for Scott Rasmussen to publish this crap.

What to do, what to do??
If I would be polled, I plan to lie to the pollster, and say I support Biden. Let the pollsters be shocked the night of the election.

That’ll show them!
43% approval and 56% disapprove.
You better all wake up. “Rasmussen sold the company” ain’t cutting it.

That’s it for this week, good people. I should be back to normal (whatever the fuck THAT is) later on this week.
