Q: Can you help us get to the bottom of these incredible results?
A. Well, we asked David Axelrod what percentage of the vote he felt Obama had,” said Baxter “and Axelrod calmly said ‘Oh, about 90%’. See, it’s not lying if you feel like you’re passing on good information.
Q: What of the rest, then?
A: Given our dedication to fairness, we posed the same question to Matt Rhoades, Mitt’s campaign manager. Matt was on another call, too. We thought we heard somebody in the background ask ‘Is it true that Romney has been in 30 states in the last month?’. Rhoades said ‘Negative. 23. Hey, look, I gotta go.’
Q: That’s kinda far out.
A: Right, but it’s a straight shot from there. 90% – -23%= 113%.
Q: There is no escaping the bear-trap nature of your logic.
A: Hey, I thought it an odd number, too, but you have to go where the math takes you.
Q: With that grasp of figures, you should be doing budgeting for Reid, or managing QE3 or something.
A: Do you really think so? Thanks!
Q: Wasn’t a complement.
