I Got Polled!

I got polled last night. Wait a minute…that didn’t sound quiet right.

 

Last night a pollster called me on the phone and I did one of those political polls that you hear about.

 

It went on and on. So long in fact I had to pee halfway through the phone call. I was on a mobile phone so I quietly sat down to pee in order to reduce pee noise. Gigi was outside the door laughing at me.

 

It was interesting to me at least about how the questions were asked and how the scales were set up for responses.

 

Keep in mind I was a marketing major in college so this stuff was right up my ally.

 

One of the more clear cut questions asked me how I would rank the following on a scale of one to one hundred with one hundred being the highest in approval. Then she read off John McCain, Barry Obama, Sara Palin, and dipshit, oh what his name…Joe Biden.

 

The poll honestly seemed balanced. I couldn’t determine who was actually paying for the poll. I listened for bias.

Did the pollster really say "Barry" Obama?

I got polled too and felt it was a very unbaised poll. She would ask somewhat leading questions and I'd tell her that, and she said "give me a minute to get to the other side." well, she did, it all took almost 20 min. I had to press her to reveal who CCI was........

On the question ranking from one to one hundred, were you supposed to rank them according to your impression of their political stances, or how they look in a dress? ;)

TerryC...no she didn't say Barry.

Michael...She asked what was my over all impression and my thoughts turned to a naughty librarian with black stockings. It helped her number considerably.

Wow...something that is actually UNbiased...it's been a while...*sigh*

So....your new look and stuff....now I get it.....you're on a first-name nick-name-type basis with Obama.

Oh, and of course you want that ultra-conservative witch from Alaska to pay attention to your new look, too. It all becomes clear.......

They got you to switch back to the dark side with that one.....hmmmm.

No Terry…I just made up my mind for now. I was dead center and undecided. It was miserable.

You see I have always said I was a conservative. There was not a real conservative in sight.

Should I try a new unproven guy that is running with an old has been liberal, or should I vote for an old has been moderate hot head that has an unproven conservative as a running mate.

The way I see it McCain knows enough people to get an administration up and running before he croaks. Then we have a conservative, practical woman step in as President.

Plus no doubt the mint will rush to put her on the $20 bill as soon as she leaves office. That’s a big plus over some old dead guy in a powdered wig on the twenty now.

Sorry, I can't think of anything to say because I'm still laughing that you "got polled" - lol.
