Bernie Kieklak is state senator Lisa Boscola's fiercely loyal chief of staff. A few weeks before the election, he told me he had a poll showing his boss would win 71% of the votes in her senatorial dispute with Bonnie Dodge.
Yeah, right! I was born at night, but not last night. The dude was obviously playing me, and I'm too smart for that. I went to college.
Boscola won her race with 72% of the vote.
Last night, Kieklak popped on my blog, and started reciting poll numbers again. This time I'm paying attention.
"Our internals showed that Lisa would have beaten Charlie by 5%. Now that the blood is in the water, stay tuned for '08! It's Lisa's mid-term, she won with 73% of the vote, and she won 63% of the Republican vote! Can you say, "Exploratory Committee" early next year?"
