Now some fresh pickings from the Political Grapevine:
By the Numbers
The final vote count for Tuesday's special election in Massachusetts had Republican Scott Brown winning with 52 percent to Democrat Martha Coakley's 47.
But the day before Election Day, there were a lot of polls out there. But just who came closest to the final numbers?
Public Policy was closest, predicting Brown to win by five points. American Research Group had Brown ahead by seven. Insider Advantage with Politico put Brown's lead at nine. PJM/Crosstarget had the Republican winning by a 10-point spread. And Daily Kos final numbers had a tie, with both candidates at 48 percent.
Domain Name Game
The Hill newspaper reports several Scott Brown for president-related domain names have been purchased over the last week.
The rights to ScottBrownforpresident.com were bought last Friday. ScottBrown2012 and ScottBrown2016 were acquired Tuesday.
Whoever purchased the domain names stands to make a pretty penny if the senator-elect ever decides to make a presidential run.
And an update to a grapevine we brought you Monday. United Nations climate scientists today admitted a warning included in their 2007 report that global warming will melt the Himalayan glaciers by 2035 was not actually based on science.
A statement by the panel read: "In drafting the paragraph in question, the clear and well-established standards of evidence, required by the [Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change] procedures, were not applied properly."
That 2007 Nobel-winning report claimed to include the latest and most detailed research into the impact of global warming, and is supposed to be the basis for government policy.
Some are seeing the revelation differently. A headline linked on the Huffington Post Web site read: "Himalayan Glacier Goof-Up: More Fake Ammo for the Climate Denial Industry."
