This is the Nile. It's a river in Egypt.

This is Denial. It's not a river in Egypt:

President Bush has surged to a 13-point lead over Sen. John Kerry among likely voters, a new Gallup Poll shows. The 55%-42% match-up is the first statistically significant edge either candidate has held this year.

"We have seen some bouncing around in the numbers," says Mike McCurry, a top Kerry adviser, "but it is our sense that the race is moving back to a much closer race."

A 5-8 point bounce post convention turns into 13 points, and McCurry thinks the race is getting closer? Still more evidence that the Kerry team is living in Bizarro World.
