Counter Subterfuge?

How does one deal with subterfuge? Counter Subterfuge!!

From a pro-McCain family member:


PBS has an online poll posted asking if Sarah Palin is qualified. Apparently the left wing knew about this in advance and are flooding the voting with NO votes.

The poll will be reported on PBS and picked up by mainstream media. It can influence undecided voters in swing states.

Please do two things -- takes 20 seconds.

Here's the link:

Then send this to every McCain-Palin supporter you know, and urge them to vote and pass it on.

The last thing we need is PBS saying their viewers don't think Sarah Palin is qualified. As to Palin, why would she be any less qualified than Obama? If anything she has more qualifications than a Civil Rights Attorney who has served half a term as a Senator. That is what I would be bringing up whenever she is challenged as to her credentials. GW Bush, Bill Clinton, Ronald Reagan, and Jimmy Carter, which covered 7 of the last 8 Presidencies were all Governors prior to being elected President.


Don't they sound almost pissed the republicans didn't just nominate Palin for president instead?

Obama supporters - you know what to do! That kind of implies go and vote, but you don't have to. It's not really all that important. It's just some dumb poll on PBS that at one time allowed multiple votes and now doesn't so in all honesty your vote or mine won't make a bit of difference statistically. Why the McCain followers have their collective knickers in a twist over it is beyond me. Small victories in the big war? Hardly.

Read more about the issues around the poll if you are bored and so inclined to read such stuff.

I love how the frigging right wing is scrambling, Scrambling, SCRAMBLING trying to make something out of nothing. And by something out of nothing I mean a legitimate campaign out of the shit fest they have going on now. It's laughable. The entire republican party is laughable right now.

Go Obama.

(For those not in the know, I'm Canadian and have no real say!)

"Knew about it in advance"?

As in, they watch PBS, PBS mentioned the poll, and then they figured out how to go online and access said poll?

I suppose they had advanced knowledge about this Nov. 4th election thing coming up, too!

Hi Lyvvie, I came over here from Hank's blog.

I get these emails from pro-McCain delusional family members as well. I usually have to hit "reply all" with a link to snopes.com or factcheck.org. I doubt they read them though.

As enthusiastic as I am about this election, I will be glad when Obama wins and this is all over. He's not only going to have to pull this country together to overcome our economic and political woes, he's also going to have to try to heal the racial and socio-economic rift the Republicans have created/exacerbated in this country during the last 20 months.

Oh honey - she's already said she's running in 2012 for President. They can vote for her slimy ass then.
