THIS HAS TO BE SATIRE

The disastrous election results were shocking here at CFC HQ. But we've pulled ourselves off the floor, and we're upping our commitment to providing accurate, conservative-based fact checking for people who recognize the truth.

That starts with some freshening of the site's look. The Obama tax hikes have prevented us from hiring professional web designers, so we're doing it ourselves... so please be patient.

THIS HAS TO BE SATIRE

Millions of people were stunned by the result of that fateful night. And the first question that many people had was "how could all the polls have been so wrong?"Rasmussen and Gallup, traditionally understood to be among the most accurate polls, had Romney. And these indicators were backed up by the scientific data: unskewedpolls.com, a site which adjusted for the left-wing bias of many polling organizations, also showed a clear victory for Romney.

I used to find this practice of corralling people in to the alternate conservative reality as disgusting and dangerous, but after the election I'm completely thrilled that these people are segregating themselves from reality.

They will get violent at some point though, that's going to suck.

thurstonxhowell: If it was a fact-checking site that concentrated on debunking liberal lies or half-truths, that would be fine. However, I think we all knew it would have bullshiat like this:

To have any semblance of fairness, PolitiFact should play it 50/50 and present an equal number of lies from both sides.

That idea should be beaten to death with a hammer.

This is satire, right? This is not a real website. I think you're all being trolled.

"It's seemed that not a single liberal media article referencing this quote is complete without mentioning studies that 25,000 - 50,000 adults die prematurely each year due to a lack of health insurance.

25,000 to 50,000. Are those numbers accurate? Perhaps.

But, remember: there are some 206 million adults living in the United States (source: Wikipedia).

This means that each year, only one in four thousand adults will die prematurely as the result of a lack of health insurance. That's statistically insignificant."

Guys, here's the thing. In any election, there will be winners and losers. The shocking thing isn't that you lost. It's that you had no idea you were losing...because being out of touch with reality on a consistent basis is pretty much the definition of insanity. I understand that the consistent reaction is to continue being insane, but, if you do continue with this, we need to remove you from society. This isn't just for our safety; it's for your own safety, too.

Maine GOP claims voter fraud
Chuck Davis | November 15th, 2012 | Tagged: GOP Maine voterID voterfraud

Maine GOP chairman Charlie Webster has received numerous reports of unknown black people showing up at polls and voting.

The Maine Republican Party believes that since these people were not recognized by town officials, they may have come into Maine to vote illegally. The Maine GOP reports that in some localities, there were "dozens" of unknown black people voting.


/that's the joke?


Actually, that one is real. Just look it up, the guy who made the claim is not racist, he has black friends that he plays basketball with.

But the site itself is a joke. It is either someone trying for a cash grab getting it linked on sites like Fark and probably World Nut Daily or someone trying to post some actual satire (think Colbert dialed up to 11).

To have any semblance of fairness, Nate Silver should play it 50/50 and present an equal number of polls showing Republicans leading as polls showing Democrats leading.

To have any semblance of fairness, scientific journals should play it 50/50 and publish an equal number of articles supporting Darwinists as those supporting Intelligent Design.

To have any semblance of fairness, NASA should play it 50/50 and spend half of its budget on space programs that assume the Earth is round, and half its budget on space programs that assume the Earth is flat. They clearly are not concerned with any pretense.

jsteiner78: qorkfiend: neenerist: jsteiner78: THIS HAS TO BE SATIRE disinformation

Highly organized, very well funded disinformation leveraging religion, patriotism and xenophobia.

It's a little too over-the-top, even for GOP disinformation.

I agree, my read on it is that this is a troll, hoping teatards start sending emails to each other with links to the site while those of the non-retard variety can point and laugh, and maybe, just maybe help educate through the power of humiliation when the truth about the site is revealed to them , ... the language they use is too Colbert-esque, the whole bit about common sense vs. "experts" is too plainly written - the bit about Politic-fact should have exactly 50% R lies and 50% D lies plays right into the caricature of Fox News that has been lampooned


Yep, pretty much. "Colbert-esque" is exactly the right term for it.

I've said before that the Democratic Party really needs to get in on this market -come up with some "conservative" business to siphon off money from potential small GOP donors and troll GOP voters into veering further and further to the right. Then use the profits to run candidates against the Teabaggers they just trolled those voters into nominating. It would be the most efficient political machine ever made.

Too bad Dems aren't nearly Machiavellian enough to ever try it.

That the same shiat most news outlets falls for to give an appearance of fairness and balance. If one side lies all the time and the other side half the time, they still try to present both sides in an equal manner.


That's why I think this site has to be satire, or at least a massive troll. They hit every single one of the popular anti-conservative memes like fact-checking, website design, unskewing polls, the 50/50 "balance", the list goes on.
