Biased Polls

leave a comment »

I think the polls showing President Obama leading among likely  voters are wildly biased. But unlike Rush Limbaugh and a host of other whiners, I think they are biased in a conservative direction. The goal of this bias is to make Democratic-leaning voters complacent about actually voting so that they won’t make as great an effort to go to the polls, or to wait in long lines, or to even bother to think about voting come November 6th. The whole right-wing poll denial bandwagon is a smokescreen, a cover story, a bit of psychological warfare, if you will, so they can convince us that they have nothing to do with this nefariously clever scheme to suppress Democratic voter turnout.

Hey, it’s not like the above paragraph is any more paranoid, ill-conceived, or flat-out delusional than anything coming out of Limbaugh’s facial sphincter, you know, that thing under his nose.

Romney/Ryan and the Truth

leave a comment »

I just wrote the title of the post, “Romney/Ryan and the Truth,” to see if I could keep a straight face upon reading those words strung together in that order.

I couldn’t.

And I feel really frustrated that I couldn’t. So frustrated, in fact, that I worried I would have a stroke if I thought about it too much.

So I stopped thinking about it.

And that’s why this post is content-light.
