Your poll sucks. Every single person in my town of Morehead Kentucky is voting for Romney. If everybody in my town is voting for Romney than everybody else in America must be too. We are just that smart here. Derp. Huuuuurrrrrrrr.

Bucky Katt: The rightwing assault on math continues.

If it doesn't fit on a standardized Scantron test, they think it doesn't count.

Dwight_Yeast: Smitty's a troll or an idiot. Either way, he's best Ignored.

Now, now... don't be so narrow-minded. He could easily be both.

smitty04: On our podcast today, Brian Ward, Steve Hayward and I talked about the obviously bogus polls that purport to show Barack Obama with a big lead in various swing states, even though those same polls show Romney winning independent voters by significant margins. Those results make sense only if enormous numbers of voters are signing up as Democrats.

Yeah...this citation sounds legit.

MechaDupek: You libs scared yet?

You know, this is not the kind of rhetoric that gets looked fondly upon in history books. You don't go around just openly telling your own countrymen to be afraid of you unless you are actively TRYING to get the Villain Edit. Seriously, what was with those black-and-white 'November Is Coming' billboard ads in 2010? Does anyone ever do that and look like the good guys afterwards?

Ivo Shandor: 17% - Odds of "winning" a game of Russian roulette
25% - Odds of a flipped coin coming up 'heads' twice in a row
32.1% - Chance of a Romney presidency according to 538
50% - Odds of a single coin flip coming up 'heads'

Okay. Now tell me the odds of 538 biffing a projection.

cc_rider: taoistlumberjak: I don't know if anyone has noticed, but yahoo news has gone really hard right lately. Not as far right as fox news, but far enough that I've noticed the same thing in a number of articles. Namely, that they're pushing a clearly one-sided view on the issues.

I noticed this a few years back. The comments on yahoo are now almost as bad as the worst YouTube comments.

Almost as bad? I'ts nearly freeperville.

This is unexpected? Of course they support the only socialist in the race!

Romney is an admitted socialist!

- Went to a socialist meeting in Boston in 2000
- Created Romneycare
- Likes Obamacare
- Receives campaign funds from communist China
- Hides from his patriotic duty by keeping his money in a tax shelter in Hong Kong
- Outsources jobs to China
- Said he likes the word socialism
- Owns stock in several communist Chinese companies
- Has a VP whose own brother is CEO of a Chinese company
- Took down the American flag at a plant where good, wholsesome, hardworking Real Americans were forced to train their communist Chinese replacements and then closed the American plant
- Forced workers to attend his rally without pay while threatening to fire them if they refused

Even Rush Limbaugh called him a socialist!

Romney: Investing in China's Future in America Today!

Mugato: I don't remember the media pulling this kind of shiat with the '08 race.

Romney is actual right wing elite, conservative meda would throw themselves in front of a bus for him
McCain was too liberal for them in 2000 and had no Bush family genes, he only had the advantage of not being a Kenyen Usurper in 2008..

Dwight_Yeast: Mrtraveler01: By Scott Bomboy | National Constitution Center

What the hell is that?

It's a museum here in Philadelphia, devoted to... The Consitution.

No idea what it's supposed to do; it's last major exhibit was on Bruce Springsteen.

/I think it was the brainchild/boondoggle of one of our Congressmen

So now museum workers have their own page on Yahoo News?

Personally, I won't rest until I find out what the sandwich maker at Wawa thinks about this.
