    Maybe Kerry could be the Hummer spokesman 

    Sen. John Kerry just keeps getting good news from Ohio. Sunday, it was the Browns' victory over the Bengals. Now, Rachel Myers reports in the Akron Beacon Journal that Kerry is doing hummingly well in this swing state of swing states and will surely win Ohio and thus the election. Myers' report is based upon the conclusions of Kent State University sociology professor Stanford W. Gregory Jr. and assistant professor Timothy J. Gallagher. They applied the Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) to the low audio frequencies or ``hums'' of President Bush and Kerry during their three debates. Contrary to the flip-floppers tag that Bush has hung on his opponent, Kerry was more consistent in tone, which the sociologists say translates to ``confidence and other attractive leadership qualities.'' The professors tested the hum from the Kennedy-Nixon debate and guess who won? They also got it right four years ago, if you count the fact that Al Gore won the popular vote. ``I would be very surprissed if we were wrong because what we're showing is that Kerry will win the popular vote by about 4.35 percent, which is outside the margin of error,'' Gallagher said. To be fair, Ohioblog places his money on W. if anyone decides to predict a winner based on chuckles and scowls.
