Goetz: NeverDrunk23: Lionel Mandrake: Submit bad headline? BOOM. Greenlight.. That's FARK Politics Tab-style

Sadder at how this tab went half the day without a green and this is what we got during that time.

As a note, have the Daily Mail/Caller submissions increased lately?

I don't know if it's me but the amount of contempt the modmins have for the average farker seems to have increased, a lot.

/I know, I'll get over it.


Seems to be a trade off as the American thinker/NRO/Townhall derp submissions have gone down.

See, the solution to removing derp isn't to replace it with equal derp.

Girl From The North Country: Don't be hating. I'm on your side.


I know, but I refuse to discriminate, so I hate everyone equally.

unyon: FTFA: If fraud is a business model at Gallup, surely that attitude permeates throughout the organization, ergo to wit, Gallup's election polls cannot be trusted.

News organizations should cover this story and the inevitable conclusion that Gallup's huge misses on polling data were not mistakes but done on purpose to influence public opinion.

Why would Gallup do that? If the administrations justice department is barking up your tree, wouldn't you want his opponent to win in order to avoid prosecution.

I can't wait to see how this scandal unfolds.

Oh, just as I predicted.


This argument is just as meritless on the left as it is on the right. Could their polling data be consistently skewed? Sure. Can you draw that conclusion from the fact that they may be greedy and have overbilled the US government? Hell naw.

In short, your blog sucks and you're not helping.


THIS. However, subby's implication that it's related to the "bad polls" is equally farktarded. Especially since the suit started in August.

incendi: And just in case I haven't made it clear enough, I think Gallup is really screwing something up.


I hear what you're saying but in the case of an outlier like Gallup, while groundbreaking is possible, what I recall from Nate Silver's writing on the history of their accuracy screwing up is far more probable. The odds of a new discovery on such a well traveled road - especially in a field like statistics - is pretty slim. I feel safer letting Occam handle Gallup.

Hmmm. Obama style. Well in that case...

This won't help him. Nothing will. Obama is dead meat (figuratively speaking).

www.strangecosmos.com

Stupid libs! Obama WAS president 3 years ago! Just shows how stupid you LIEbral Demoncraps really are. This isn't about fraud! REAL businesses maximize profit. This is the pure beauty of the free market capitalistic system you homoabortionjizzpotemporium lovers just will never get because you jack it to Stalin and Mao.

This is an OBVIOUS attack on those who are on 0bama's "enemies list" No other president in the history of the world and humankind on the face of the earth and galaxy has EVER had an enemies list! This PROVES that Barry Hussein Sourpusstoro is not an American and hates us for our freedoms.

Christ, you people need to study it out!


7/10 for "you people need to study it out" alone.

I dunno, they're both lawyers. Their foreplay probably starts with a husky whisper of, "Billable hours".

Another bullshiat article is green. This is my shocked face.
 
2012-10-20 09:28:19 PM  
Not even going to comment on the actual article.


Only here to call Subby a farking retard.

Sooo...

1) Gallup's polls are consistently inaccurate
2) They're in a dispute with the government over billing of services
3) Someone on Kos thinks 1+2=OMG FRAUD CONNECT THE DOTS GALLUP NUMBERS ARE FAKED
4) This gets like 200 recommends and 200 comments because it resonates with lefty paranoia, even though it doesn't seem to make sense on any level.
 
2012-10-20 10:02:06 PM  
It's only a bad poll when it goes against democrats. We never saw lawsuits when Obama was leading.

I thought it got the attention because it resonated with righty paranoia, even though it doesn't make sense on any level... I mean headline seems to imply that Obama is going after Gallup b/c of bad polls.
 
2012-10-20 11:30:20 PM  
Well, look at the averages over the more popular polls. most have either obama or mitt with at most a 3 point lead. then comes Gallup all on its own with a 6 point swing.

Girl From The North Country: NewportBarGuy: Girl From The North Country: My heart bleeds. That's right, I'm a bleeding heart.

I'll bet you want my tax dollars to pay for your health care to fix that, right?

TAXED
ENOUGH
ALREADY!

Fix it yourself, you homeless hippie!

Ha... It was a preexisting condition. Suck it cons!


LUCKY DUCKYYY!!! *shakes fist*

Makes me wonder how good Tucker Carlson is in bed in order for them to keep greenlighting his BS.

a_bilge_monkey: Subs, I suggest you RTFA. It's about billing fraud and started three years ago. Or maybe you did.

2/10


Nice, I was wondering how far into the comments I'd have to go before people pointed out that TFH had nothing to do with TFA...

I think what's important here is that we all agree that the secret Muslim negro usurper is trying to sap us of our precious bodily fluids.
