Opinion Polls October 31, 2008

Posted by Michael in News.
trackback

I’ve had enough.

I’m sick to death of hearing about opinion polls. If I read another analysis of the poll “internals” I’m going to hurl. I just don’t care anymore about the built-in biases against McCain, cell phone users, Hispanics, new voters, the elderly, and on and on. This year I have slammed the phone down on every pollster who has called. Personally, I think that only an idiot would participate in an opinion poll or pay any attention to them.

But that’s just me. What do you think?¹

¹The results of this poll are subject to statistical adjustment by Site Administration in order to correct for the demographic underrepresenstation within the sample set of individuals in the general population who are annoyed by Dave.

Wait! So I can’t vote twice from my work computer?

Damn!

2. xbradtc - October 31, 2008

I NEVER respond to pollsters. Not because of any principled stand, but because I have better things to do with my time, like download porn.

3. kevlarchick - October 31, 2008

A pollster has never called me. If he did, I would LIE, just like I do with the bill collectors.

4. Cathy - October 31, 2008

Polls are for strippers.

5. Russ from Winterset - October 31, 2008

“I NEVER respond to pollsters. Not because of any principled stand, but because I have better things to do with my time, like download gay midget porn.”

FTFY

6. Dave in Texas - October 31, 2008

Texas has a “pole” tax.

That makes me giggle.

I dint pay it. I don’t do that sorta thing.

7. Mrs. Peel - October 31, 2008

Michael, I haven’t watched this, but I am guessing from the description that you will love it. (found it on the Corner)

8. S. Weasel - October 31, 2008

And by “annoys me” I meant “makes me hot.”

9. Mrs. Peel - October 31, 2008

also, I voted for geoff. The real geoff, of course.

10. Cathy - October 31, 2008

Oh My, Mrs. Peel. It’s great! Thanks for sharing.

At first I thought it was filmed at one of the Lutheran Seminaries, but when you go to the website you can click on an option and learn all about how and where they filmed it.

Very clever.

11. Pupster - October 31, 2008

Damn Dave. You should bottle that stuff you ooze around teh wimmens.

I’d buy some.

12. sandy burger - October 31, 2008

I’m not sure if I’ve ever been polled or not. If so, I highly doubt I was sober at the time.

13. Pupster - October 31, 2008

Did you guys see the synchronized debate video at Hot Air?

14. Michael - October 31, 2008

Mrs. Peel — thank you! That was great.

15. Wickedpinto - October 31, 2008

Yeah!
Well, Us hostages think that you IBer’s are a bunch of nice people with pleasent demeanors!!!

Take that!

16. Michael - October 31, 2008

WP, that kind of rude talk is not welcome here.

17. Wickedpinto - October 31, 2008

Anyone else think that “liveblogging halloween,” might be a bridge too far in the online experience?

18. Wickedpinto - October 31, 2008

And who would name their kid Lucretia?

Last I checked the borgia’s didn’t exactly have the best reputation.

19. Wickedpinto - October 31, 2008

Damn, Wrong lucrezia, still wouldn’t sign on with that.

20. Russ from Winterset - October 31, 2008

“Well, Us hostages think that you IBer’s are a bunch of nice people with pleasent demeanors!!!”

Hey bub, you take that back right effing now!

21. lauraw - October 31, 2008

You should bottle that stuff you ooze around teh wimmens.

Ooze?
I’d say it was more of a spray.

22. Dave in Texas - October 31, 2008

It’s called Sex Panther by Odeon. It’s illegal in nine countries… Yep, it’s made with bits of real panther, so you know it’s good.

60% of the time, it works all the time.

23. Wickedpinto - October 31, 2008

That doesn’t make sense, unless you are an economic adviser for Obama.

24. Wickedpinto - October 31, 2008

“What smells like bigfoots COCK?”

25. Mare - October 31, 2008

I smell panther burning.

26. Mrs. Peel - October 31, 2008

heh, glad y’all liked it.

*Dave walks in*

Dear God, what is that smell?!?

27. Dave in Texas - October 31, 2008

I can’t believe I’m losing to those guys.

28. TattooedIntellectual - October 31, 2008

Anything’s gotta smell better than a dorm hallway w/ a dozen different axe body sprays. Gag a maggot!

Hi Dave 🙂

29. Lipstick - October 31, 2008

“What smells like bigfoots COCK?”

I am a female, thankyouverymuch.

30. Wickedpinto - October 31, 2008

I was threatenened with an page 11 because I would walk into the work bay, and smell all of the different collognes and body spray’s and shampoo’s and conditioners, and I would bitch about it.

When I was doing S&R work, there were 3 people in a huge bay, and I could SMELL! this one unattractive BAM Whore from several 10’s of yards away, “MAY! GET THE FUCK OUT OF MY BAY!”

“how’d you know it was me, cuz I can smell your fucking perfume, and if it wasn’t your perfume, it might be your twat, GET OUT OF MY BAY.”

(she was a whore, no really, it was mil-days, certain women, are. . . well, like certain women.)

31. Sobek - October 31, 2008

Something in here smells like a diaper full of Indian food.

I did a telephone survey about cystic fibrosis. I told the gal at the beginning that I know nothing whatsoever about CB or the CB Foundation, but she went on and asked me to rate stuff, on a scale of one to ten, like whether I thought the CB Foundation gave enough focus on research or care or legislative initiatives, etc.

32. Dave in Texas - October 31, 2008

You’re invited to the pants party.

33. Wickedpinto - October 31, 2008

Sobek,

did you see in all the other blogs all the other people who are gonna be in town?

Iowa is from here I think, and TIM BLAIR is suposed to be in the neighborhood, and B5 had one of their contributors meat up, and I even saw another one (that is already over with.)

I backed out of asking robbie and Steve/the artist formerly known as ed snate, cuz I figured, just keep it small.

But. . .

IOWA AND TIM!?!?!

THATS ROCKING!!!

Any chance any of them know who you are? I’m almost tempted to turn it into a thing, but the timeline is short now.

34. Dave in Texas - October 31, 2008

Wicked, do you want to come to the pants party?

35. Site Administration - October 31, 2008

Recent comments have resulted in the necessity of making a statistically valid adjustment to the poll results, based upon a linear regression analysis where the correlation coefficient between retards and people who like Dave reached .99, thus requiring a correction to poll results.

36. Wickedpinto - October 31, 2008

I like wearing pants, you guys tried to take advantage of me at the IBSBP and I stopped you at one sock.

37. Dave in Texas - October 31, 2008

So I’m the most annoying dude here?

awesome.

I rock.

38. Michael - November 1, 2008

Oh fuck you Dave. Your self-deprecating humor does not work with me. It’s just all part of your phony Texas goober act that you use to suck up to the IB Wimmens. It works with some of them (like my wife, who keeps wanting to make you pie), but I see right through your bullshit. That poll is now a scientific reflection of the TRUTH!!!

Now, don’t get the impression I’m jealous of you or something. Hah! Of course not. I’m just trying to run an unbiased poll.

39. Wickedpinto - November 1, 2008

Dave, Like I, Wants to shoot those fucking lions.

Your wife said in no uncertain terms that that is off limits, which I think is unfair.

Those fucking things are creapy!!!

40. Wickedpinto - November 1, 2008

BTW, I just voted against dave, only cuz, the Hostages is in second place.

41. Dave in Texas - November 1, 2008

>> Your self-deprecating humor does not work with me

it isn’t targeted toward you. I am results-oriented.

How do you like me now?

42. skinbad - November 1, 2008

All those gay hostages are going to be disappointed.

43. Michael - November 1, 2008

All those gay hostages are going to be disappointed.

Nah. Gay people like The Hostages are more likely to share my opinion about Dave.

44. Wickedpinto - November 1, 2008

I hate you guys.

45. Michael - November 1, 2008

I hate you guys.

Flattery will get you nowhere around here.

46. Wickedpinto - November 1, 2008

well, I like the tachyon, but the rest of you guys SUCK!

47. Wickedpinto - November 1, 2008

Well, I MIGHT like Peel, but I don’t know her situation.

48. Wickedpinto - November 1, 2008

Calvinist.

49. Wickedpinto - November 1, 2008

Your house is gay.

50. Wickedpinto - November 1, 2008

Russ is ugly.

51. Wickedpinto - November 1, 2008

The skinny’s are TOO DAMN NICE!!!

Really, too nice, If they weren’t packing I’d wanna punch mr. skinny in the face.

52. Sobek - November 1, 2008

Wicked, Iowahawk will be there? Holy crap! I might just wet myself, and that could be pretty embarassing.

53. Sobek - November 1, 2008

And I have no idea whether eight he or Tim know who I am.

54. Sobek - November 1, 2008

And feel free to invite anyone you want.

55. Wickedpinto - November 1, 2008

E-mail Iowa, I only saw it this morning.

56. Dave in Texas - November 1, 2008

I’m winning!

57. Wickedpinto - November 1, 2008

Can’t find robbie, and I’m not close with The artist formerly known as ed snate, though I did e-mail Iowa.

58. Wickedpinto - November 1, 2008

I actually voted with “The hostages are gay” twice, just so I can keep up the argument.

59. Sobek - November 1, 2008

Is everyone out doing fun things today, or what?

I just baked a pumpkin pie from scratch. Mrs. Sobek cut and boiled the pumpkin, but I did all the rest. It smells pretty good.

60. Lipstick - November 1, 2008

I just cooked a hot dog on the George Foreman grill.

Oh, hey, I was back in Miami last week and saw the boxer/bellman I posted about (Levi Forte). He said that his co-workers posted printouts of the IB article all over their work space and were warning all the new young bellmen to watch out for Levi.

61. Mrs. Peel - November 1, 2008

I’m wasting time instead of studying or writing. I’ve been listening to dramatic readings from My Immortal on youtube. They’re hilarious. (Well, a couple of them are, anyway. One guy in particular has such a great voice and such perfect delivery that I’ve listened to his rendition of Chapter 17 about 10 times. “He had lung [sic] black hair and a loooong black…bread? Bread.”)

62. Barry in CO - November 1, 2008

I selected ‘the Hostages are gay’ only because there was no button for ‘the IB is gay’.

63. Mrs. Peel - November 1, 2008

That’s funny, LS. I just checked that thread to see if we said anything particularly crazy, but (thankfully?) we didn’t.

64. Lipstick - November 1, 2008

Peel, when he told me that my first thought was “I hope the comments were clean”.

65. Sobek - November 1, 2008

I’m just glad I didn’t call the guy a sissy or something.

66. Mrs Peel - November 1, 2008

I just listened to that My Immortal reading yet again, giggling the whole time. That guy really has a great voice and excellent delivery, though he does laugh a couple times when he’s supposed to be playing it straight (which just makes it even funnier to me). I wish I knew who he was (the person who posted the video apparently found the MP3 on something awful, and doesn’t know who he is either).

(the chapter is here. warning: worst fanfic EVER. the reading is here.)

67. Wickedpinto - November 2, 2008

No, Not Iowa will be there, but Iowa is in town, and so is Tim Blair.

I don’t think an invite from me would fly. Really, can you imagine Iowa going “You know who I’d really like to meet? That crazy guy from that blog I never read.”

I was trying to get you and mus to harass him.
