[In what will no doubt relieve the the Obama campaign, two new polls have come through with two solid double-digit wins for him in Oregon. Always a thrill a minute for our Democratic colleagues, huh? - Moe Lane]
We have received reports showing concern over American Research Group's forecast yesterday of 50/45 the Obama in Oregon, and 65/29 Clinton in Kentucky. We would like to remind our operatives that ARG has been notoriously bad this election cycle in picking a winner, so be sure to mention that often.
Particularly since, according to Suffolk, it's 45/41 the Obama in Oregon and 51/25 Clinton in Kentucky. Accordingly, please be sure to also use the words "outlier" and "statistical blips," emphasize that Oregon uses exclusively a [mail]-in ballot, immediately switch to a narrative where the Obama was always going to have a fight in Oregon, and of course redouble all efforts to insist that a bare majority of pledged delegates in a reduced primary total gives the Obama a moral right to his Party's nomination.
Thank you for your attention in this matter.
Hope and change,
The the Obama Campaign
PS: And for the love of Barack, don't talk about thermostat regulation. People are going to wonder why we even care, given the whole global warming thing.
