Marijuana Delivered To Woman's Doorstep - Snoop Dogg offers reward for "misplaced package"

ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. -- An Orange County woman was shocked when the post office delivered a package to her doorstep that was filled with marijuana. The marijuana was tightly wrapped in a large container and delivered to her house on Saturday. The homeowner does not want her name revealed because she is afraid drug traffickers will come looking for the pot. She handed the package over to the sheriff's office. "I looked at it and backed up, and I immediately pulled my cell phone out and called 911," said the woman. The U.S. Postal Inspection Office says cases like this one are on the rise. Traffickers pick random addresses, send drugs through the mail and pick up the deliveries before residents have a chance to open them. via wftv.com

There were actually 2 packages, but she only reported one, citing the age-old "finders-keepers" rule. She promptly made brownies and burned a big fattie in the back yard.

"[I]t really looks as if Barnes is just the wrong candidate running in the wrong year." RealClearPolitics.com

From RealClearPolitics.com

"10/10/10 -- Sure enough, Barnes' numbers have remained mired in the low 40s, while Deal is starting to approach 50 percent.  This isn't over by a longshot, but it really looks as if Barnes is just the wrong candidate running in the wrong year."

Pelosi Renounced by Candidates in Her Own Party - otherwise known as "Abandon Ship!"

The phrase "abandon ship" comes to mind seeing all these Democrats distancing themselves from their party leaders...."I'm a Democrat, but I'm not like Obama, Pelosi and Reid." All through the South...look at the tightrope Roy Barnes has to walk by trying to be a Democrat but renounce the policies of his own party.

I understand it's kind of cool to be the only unbeaten team in the Premier League, but 5 draws out of 8 games is NOT good. C'mon, we can do better, United. At least Chelski aren't running away with it, but anytime City is above you on the table, it's time to start getting serious.

Congressman Jim Oberstar, D-Minn., has just one donor from his district

With a potentially competitive race developing back home in Minnesota’s 8th District, Transportation Committee Chairman Jim Oberstar collected a contribution from just one resident of the district between June 22 and Sept. 30, according to a federal election report filed Wednesday.

Jane Robbins of Pine City gave Oberstar $500 on Aug. 22.

Other than that, all of his contributions came from political action committees, Native American tribes or individual donors in other districts and states.

In all, the veteran Iron Range Democrat, first elected in 1974, collected just $233,102 in receipts over the time period. By comparison, fellow Minnesotan Michele Bachmann, a Republican firebrand, pulled in $5.4 million between July 1 and Sept. 30.

He manages to get only one person in his district to contribute to his campaign (he raised $232,500 from those outside his district). And these people act surprised and confused when they see the frustration of the voters. By the way, he has been there 36 years....

Rasmussen Predicts GOP Gain of 55 in US House

Newport Beach, Calif.—Nationally-recognized pollster Scott Rasmussen last night predicted that Republicans would gain 55 seats in races for the U.S. House of Representatives November 2—much more than the 39 needed for a Republican majority in the House for the first time since 2006.

But the man whose Rasmussen Reports polling is watched carefully by politicians and frequently quoted by the punditocracy said that whether Republicans gain the ten seats they need to take control of the Senate is in question.

Georgia Elections: Deal still leads Barnes by 8; Olens and Cagle have comfortable leads -

The latest InsiderAdvantage survey shows the Republican candidates for governor, lieutenant governor and attorney general in Georgia all are enjoying substantial leads.

In the race for governor, Nathan Deal leads former Gov. Roy Barnes by eight points – 49 percent to 41 percent. The Libertarian has dropped to 3 percent, and 7 percent are undecided.

In the race for lieutenant governor, incumbent Casey Cagle has a 50 percent to 36 percent lead over Democrat Carol Porter. The Libertarian is receiving 3 percent and some 12 percent are undecided....

GOVERNOR

Nathan Deal continues to enjoy a reasonably strong lead over Roy Barnes. However, as I indicated last week, the poll does show improvement from our last poll among independent voters. The problem for Barnes is that independent voters are now making up their minds and they have reached nearly 50 percent for Deal with only 10 percent undecided and Barnes at 36 percent. For Barnes to have a chance to win this race or force a runoff, the Libertarian must hold to at least 3 percent and Barnes must improve his numbers among independents and male voters, where he is now trailing 56 percent to 34 percent.( Barnes leads among female voters 46 percent to 43 percent.) This explains why we have seen so many commercials recently in which Roy Barnes is surrounded primarily by white males in delivering his message. Republicans should be careful to not be overly confident, in that any movement among male voters in Barnes’ direction would likely also be a shift in independent voters, making the race much closer. However, the results of the other two races tell us something about the mood of Georgians with regard to Republican nominees versus Democrats in this very tough year for Democratic candidates....

Election 2010: Nevada Senate - Angle hits 50% - Reid starting to fade

Republican challenger Sharron Angle has now moved to a four-point lead over Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in Nevada’s bare-knuckles U.S. Senate race.

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Nevada Voters shows Angle hitting the 50% mark for the first time since mid-August, while Reid earns 46% of the vote. Two percent (2%) prefer some other candidate in the race, and two percent (2%) more are undecided. (To see question wording, click here.)

This marks the widest gap between the two candidates since late June, but the race remains a Toss-Up in the Rasmussen Reports Election 2010 Senate Balance of Power rankings.

Just over a week ago, the race was virtually tied, with Reid at 48% and Angle at 47%. The two have been separated by a gap of three points or less since Reid came charging back in June with a series of blistering attack ads on Angle.

GA Gov Race: Deal extends lead - Barnes in trouble

Republican Nathan Deal now holds a nine-point lead over Democrat Roy Barnes in the race to be Georgia’s next governor.

A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in the state finds Deal earning 50% of the vote, while Barnes receives 41% support.  Libertarian candidate John Monds is a far distant third with three percent (3%).  Three percent (3%) prefer another candidate, and just as many (3%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here).

This race remains Leans GOP in the Rasmussen Reports Election 2010 Gubernatorial Scorecard

In surveys dating back to March, Deal has consistently held a modest advantage over Barnes, with support ranging from 43% to 51%.  In those same surveys, Barnes’ support has remained in the narrow range of 39% to 43%.  Monds was first included in late September and has failed to earn more than five percent (5%) of the vote.  Last month, Deal led Barnes 45% to 39%

Deal, a former nine-term congressman, is favored by 86% of Republicans in the state.  Barnes, who served as governor from 1999 to 2003, earns support from 88% of Democrats.  Deal holds a double-digit lead over Barnes among voters not affiliated with either political party.

Eighty-one percent (81%) of Barnes voters are already certain how they will vote next month, as are 86% of Monds supporters. Just 68% of those who back Deal say they've already made up their minds.

The survey of 750 Likely Voters in Georgia was conducted on October 6, 2010 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 4 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.

Barnes faces an electorate that trends conservative, enough so that the Democrat declined to even meet with President Obama when he visited the state in August. 

Twenty-seven percent (27%) of voters in the state consider themselves part of the Tea Party movement. This finding is double the level measured nationally.  Fifty-nine percent (59%) do not consider themselves members of that movement, but 15% more are not sure.

Most Tea Party members (90%) in Georgia back Deal, while 60% of non-members favor Barnes.

Eleven percent (11%) of all voters in the state rate the U.S. economy as good or excellent, but 54% describe it as poor. Thirty-one percent (31%) say the economy is getting better, while 44% say it's getting worse.

Barnes has an overwhelming lead among voters who say the economy is improving. Deal has an equally solid lead among those who think things are worsening economically. 

Forty-nine percent (49%) of the state’s voters have a favorable opinion of Deal, with 14% who view him Very Favorably. He is viewed unfavorably by 47%, including 22% with a Very Unfavorable view. 

For Barnes, favorables are 44% and unfavorables 54%, including 23% Very Favorable and 33% Very Unfavorable.
Monds is regarded favorably by 32% and unfavorably by 30%. This includes three percent (3%) Very Favorable and 12% Very Unfavorable. But 38% don’t know enough about the Libertarian hopeful to voice any kind of opinion of him.

Fifty-six percent (56%) of all Georgia voters think the policies of the federal government encourage illegal immigration, slightly lower than findings nationally. Twenty-four percent (24%) disagree, and 21% aren't sure.

Fifty-two percent (52%) think it's better to let states enforce laws against illegal immigration rather than to rely on the federal government. Forty-three percent (43%) say it's best to let the federal government enforce those laws.

Eighty-six percent (86%) say immigration is at least somewhat important to how they will vote next month, including 50% who say it is Very Important. 

Current Republican Governor Sonny Perdue, who defeated Barnes in 2002, is term-limited.  Fifty-three percent (53%) of Georgia voters approve of the job Perdue is doing as governor, while 44% disapprove.

Additional questions from this survey and a full demographic breakdown are available to Platinum Members only. 

In 2008, Rasmussen Reports projected nationally that Barack Obama would defeat John McCain by a 52% to 46% margin. Obama won 53% to 46%. Four years earlier, Rasmussen Reports had projected the national vote totals for both George W. Bush and John Kerry within half-a-percentage-point.

In Georgia, Rasmussen Reports polled on two races during the 2008 campaign. In the race for president, Rasmussen polling showed McCain defeating Obama 52% to 47%, and McCain won 52% to 47%. In the 2008 Georgia Senate race, Rasmussen polling showed Saxby Chambliss leading Jim Martin 50% to 46% in the general election. Chambliss won 50% to 47%.
In the 2006 governor’s race, Rasmussen polling showed Perdue beating Mark Taylor 57% to 32%. Perdue won 58% to 38%.

In the 2004 presidential race, Rasmussen polling in Georgia showed George W. Bush defeating John Kerry by 15 points, 54% to 39%. Bush won by 17, 58% to 41%. In the 2004 Senate race, Rasmussen polling just before Election Day showed Johnny Isakson leading Denise Majette 54% to 42%. Isakson won 58% to 40%.

Liverpool in shock home defeat at the hands of BLACKPOOL - ESPN Soccernet

Torres injured in shock defeat

Updated: October 3, 2010, 3:04 AM ET

Liverpool's much-publicised issues off the pitch have been eclipsed by their problems on it as the side slumped to an embarrassing 2-1 defeat at home to Premier League newcomers Blackpool.

Thousands of fans staged a pre-match protest march against the continuing ownership of Tom Hicks and George Gillett but there was a real danger of revolt inside Anfield at the final whistle.

Charlie Adam's penalty and Luke Varney's perfectly-timed run and finish did the damage in the first half and although Sotirios Kyrgiakos's header pulled one back Liverpool will spend the next fortnight rooted in the bottom three because of the forthcoming international break.

Manager Roy Hodgson has spent his three-month tenure at the club insisting there would be a transitional period but their current position is shameful for a club of Liverpool's stature.

There is little he can say to excuse this result, yet another in a string of disappointing displays which have been characterised more by poor performances than anything else.

Blackpool, to their credit, were well worth their win on their first-half performance but it should not be forgotten that they are a side who went to Arsenal and Chelsea and were beaten 6-0 and 4-0.

Prior to kick-off they had conceded more away goals than any of their rivals (10) but that record was not something which was exploited at all by their hosts.

They were not helped by the 10th-minute loss of striker Fernando Torres to a suspected groin injury, but even then they should still have at least dominated possession.

But they did not get chance as Blackpool attacked from the off and Adam's second-minute free-kick had Jose Reina batting the ball away.

Torres barely had time to flash a cross into the six-yard box where Joe Cole deflected it wide before he was replace by David Ngog.

Blackpool were enjoying far more of the play than they could have expected to at Anfield and DJ Campbell went close at the far post from Neal Eardley's teasing right-wing cross.

When Steven Gerrard gave the ball away in his own half it was only Martin Skrtel's sliding challenge which denied Varney's shot but the pressure eventually told in the 29th minute.

Right-back Glen Johnson, in particular, has had a dreadful start to the season and it got worse when he brought down Varney, allowing Adam to fire home the penalty despite Reina getting a hand on it.

Liverpool's response was half-hearted with Kyrgiakos, Ngog, Johnson, Dirk Kuyt and Raul Meireles all failing to test goalkeeper Matt Gilks with chances.

Seconds before the interval the Seasiders stunned their hosts when Gary Taylor-Fletcher flicked a ball into the penalty area and Varney ran on to fire past Reina.

Two minutes into the second half Ngog should have buried his header from Kuyt's cross when unmarked only to miss the target but Kyrgiakos showed him how it should be done in the 43rd minute, powering home Gerrard's quickly-taken free-kick.

The tide had turned as now Liverpool were enjoying all the possession, even if it had taken them nearly an hour to establish such a position.

Meireles had three attempts in quick succession, although only the first forced Gilks into a save, before Cole was put through by Carragher only to see his delicate dink beat the goalkeeper but roll past the far post.

A positive substitution removed defensive midfielder Christian Poulsen for forward Milan Jovanovic, with Meireles dropped back into his favoured central position.

As quickly as Liverpool had gained their attacking momentum it seemed to desert them just when they needed it most in the final 15 minutes.

Kuyt's header at the far post from Gerrard's cross was the closest they came but it lacked the power or direction to beat Gilks.

The Reds have now gone five matches in all competitions without a win - no wonder the Kop chanted the name of Kenny Dalglish, who was overlooked for the manager's job in the summer.

Hodgson has some serious thinking to do while the majority of his squad are away with their national teams.

Hate to kick a rival when they are down, but those Scousers wouldn't hesitate to do the same to us....

Suspect Denies Owning Cocaine In His Butt | The Smoking Gun

OCTOBER 1--A Florida man arrested Wednesday on drug charges told cops that a bag of cocaine found hidden inside his buttocks did not belong to him. Though the suspect did cop to ownership of a bag of marijuana hidden alongside the coke.

The narcotics were discovered by Manatee County Sheriff’s Office deputies after Raymond Roberts’s Hyundai was pulled over on a Bradenton street for speeding Wednesday morning. Investigators, who reported smelling a strong odor of marijuana emanating from the vehicle, subsequently searched the 25-year-old Roberts and discovered his hidden stash.

During the search, when Deputy Sean Cappiello "felt a soft object in the crack of his buttocks," the suspect "began to tense up." Roberts volunteered to remove the item. “Let me get it, hold on” he said, and proceeded to place a "clear plastic baggie with a green leafy substance" on the car's hood. A subsequent test showed the substance to be marijuana, 4.5 grams worth, according to an amusing sheriff’s report. Or click here for an easy-to-read PDF of the document.

"I then asked him if that was it," wrote Cappiello, "and he stated 'yes.'"

But, as the deputy reported, "I then searched his shorts again and felt another object that was in the crack of his buttocks. I pulled the object out from the exterior of his shorts and a clear plastic baggie with a white rock substance fell to the ground." This plastic bag, a test would later determine, contained 27 pieces of crack cocaine.

Roberts quickly disavowed ownership of the cocaine. “The white stuff is not mine, but the weed is,” he claimed, adding that the crack in his crack was the property of a friend who had previously borrowed the car and left the drug on the passenger seat. Roberts explained that when he was pulled over for speeding, he concealed the second bag of narcotics.

Pictured in the above mug shot, Roberts was charged with pot and cocaine possession. He was freed after posting $1120 bond. (2 pages)
