it's not the coffee, it's the bunk

Jon Husband forwards this from Professor Stephen F. Freeman at the University of Pennsylvania:
As much as we can say in social science that something is impossible, it is impossible that the discrepancies between predicted and actual vote counts in the three critical battleground states of the 2004 election could have been due to chance or random error.
That's on page 7 of The Unexplained Exit Poll Discrepancy, about which, more here.

I love the bit right after the above quote where Prof. Freeman gently reminds the New York Times that stating that something has been "debunked" is hardly an explanation of how the alleged dissociation from bunking has in fact been ascertained.

Got Bunk?

Okay, not sure I follow. Sounds like you could use some coffee maker.

I clicked Next Blog and found your blog here. I'll review when I have more time.

Hey, great blog! Sounds like you need coffee house.

I love coffee and did a keyword search on coffee house and came up with your site. The association was close, anyway. Take care! Dave
