How insanely politicized does this country have to be for the author to claim that using EIP is somehow a leftist thing?

This kind of experimental statistical modeling is happeming on the left and the right in politics as well as every other segment of the market and research circles.

It's science, therefore it is leftist. They should be listening to God to see which ads to play.

I've been wondering about EIP: does it actually get you BIE?

This entire article was just a veiled attempt to solicit BIE.

Obama didn't go from 30 points down against a presumptive nominee to POTUS on luck and skillful oratory alone.

His '08 operation was incredibly sophisticated and disciplined. His '12 will be a juggernaut. What it lacks in enthusiasm, it makes up for in resources. People who think this election is close need to stop getting their news from talking heads on infotainment networks.

So he's trying to get all philosophical on us ?

25 million dollars in advertising won't change his lugubriousness.

Did someone say empirical? Looks like Obama is doing pretty well here on fark.

I love Dear Prudence. Just browse the archive for lots of goofy goodness like that.

So he's running thought control experiments on the American people. Isn't that special?
 
2012-05-23 11:28:22 AM
They reflect a commitment to using randomized trials, the result of a flowering partnership between Obama's team and the Analyst Institute, a secret society of Democratic researchers committed to the practice, according to several people with knowledge of the arrangement

"Secret societies" don't have websites, you stupid f*cking c*nt.

NOoooooooooooooooooo, it's pronounced like CAMERA - but with a "T" instead of a "C."
 
2012-05-23 11:36:56 AM
DNR more than one page of TFA

Did this thing take a serious spin after the first page? I mean, "seekrit seecietae" was about the only thing I saw that was charged in any way, and it's a slam dunk that that has been applied to any of a number of conservative shrink tanks.

Also, this is pretty pedestrian. Statistical modeling is a part of the world now. The only difference is now you don't know when you're contributing to the statistics. That's why I encourage acting as an outlier wherever possible. Throw off the curve a bit.
 
2012-05-23 11:38:36 AM
Interesting but not surprising, especially as internet-based activity essentially has the data collection built in. I'd be disappointed if Obama wasn't doing this kind of thing.

By the time the story gets to FN it'll be backward masking and brainwashing.

I cannot take credit for the ptero-drama, however, I have reenacted it once or twice in full civil war union gear.
