“Crooks and Liars” update: poll results

Jay Tea’s post below on the laughable attempt by the leftist blog Crooks and Liars to spin Rep. Pete Stark’s outrageous comments on the House floor needs an update.

Jay notes they are deleting all comments critical of their efforts, but they made the mistake of hosting their online poll at at outside site, PollDaddy.com, so they can’t mess with the results. Scroll down to the poll, and notice the voting on the question, “Should Pete Stark apologize?” Currently 78% of respondents say he SHOULD.

The moral of the story is: when throwing poop against the wall, hoping some might stick, take care not to let any hit the fan.

Thanks to Charles Johnson for noticing the results!

Jay Tea adds: someone noticed that the poll does NOTHING to prevent repeat voting. I tried it out myself and stuffed five “yes” and five “no” ballots into the box — just for balance — and it took them all. And numerous people at the LGF thread boasted of stuffing far in excess of my humble efforts — showing just how utterly meaningless the whole exercise was, a suitable metaphor for the entire shoddy affair from the oh-so-aptly-named “Crooks And Liars.”
