I have to tell you Cait, I'm more interested about why you took this so personally. It's just politics and you've never been this defensive before. As a matter of fact, I believe you and I found some common ground.
We do. I'm cool with you.

I'm taking this up with you because it's pure statistics in polling and it is surprisingly accurate. I'm just shocked that you would think that polls are inaccurate without knowing how they work mathematically.

The reason I'm on this and pushing, is because I used to work for Harris, and believe me it's precise sampling. It isn't just call a bunch of people [all not L_G] and post their opinions as gospel. It's a precise sampling formula. Actually there are a number of sampling formulas.

At any rate, if the pollsters polled everyone *but* me then I would most certainly not have one single problem with the poll's accuracy but considering that no one I know has ever been polled (and I know a hell of a lot of people) then I'm sticking with my original assessment.
I just told you up thread, that I've been asked. So you do know someone.

So I see now that's TK's ezine isn't a beacon of balance but the same liberal media trash as everything else out there. Thanks for nothin'! :bigass:
Well, I guess you don't 'see' an offer when it's extended. Give me an article. Something that reflects YOUR POV and I'll put it up. I've said that a number of times already. That's not being hard nosed or pushing my POV down anyone's throat, it's a genuine offer that VERY few have taken me up on. If you'd rather slam me instead of get your POV out there, then well... Thanks for nothin' sums it up I guess.

The ezine shouldn't reflect my personal views nor should it reflect Cait's personal views.
Well if that's not what it was about then what was the point of this complaint? The entire reason you challenged Cait's posting in the first place was because it was something that you personally didn't agree with. So what should be placed there instead?

I'm not trying to pick a fight with you, I just found this thread interesting since I too have been paying attention to the fact that Bush's popularity seems to be dropping off at an exponential rate. I'm not even American, I don't give a fuck, it was just an observation.

You make a very valid point.



I wasn't screaming about it, I was surprised that the ezine had taken a hardline, I was disappointed. Do I have anything else to offer? Not necessarily but in the future I'd like to see balance.
Cait puts a huge amount of her personal time into the ezine. So, either pony up your own personal time for it or shut the fuck up.

Who asked her to*? You? Then it's a good thing you don't complain you socialist, tree hugging, rat.

*nothing against Cait, she hugged my freakishly swollen face so I hug her back {{{{{Cait}}}}}.

Well, you did start this thread to basically blast Cait's editorial decisions. I'm glad she puts so much energy into OUCH!, because nobody else is willing to, right now.

I think the Rodent takes this round.

LMAO! I wouldn't hold my breath. ;)

*Ironclad, I don't particularly support Bush but I'm not going to suddenly buy into polls I've never been apart of.

I'm so glad you are better...

But, you need to read up on how polls are conducted.. Just so you know.. OK hon.

And yes I still loves ya.. always will

{{{{{{{{Cait}}}}}}}} Thanks. :)

Per your advice I googled how polls are conducted and I read a very, very interesting article and what I learned is the Gallup and other like polls have decided that, in fact, a very small portion of population does reflect the views of all Americans.

Being the skeptic that I am I laugh. I stick with my original assessment. No one asked me.

The funniest part was the poll on polls and the fact that most Americans trust polls but don't trust the method in which they're conducted or the questions asked. How stupid is that?

You make me proud. That's all I wanted you to do. Get a little more information and then make a more informed decision. If you still believe that they are inaccurate--well then that is what you believe. But, I thank you for reading up on it.

You're the best you know.. simply the best. :D
