Your precious online polling is a complete scam…
The benefit of these polls are very minimal, and now it’s obvious that they’ll be abused. So why bother? Well… that’s easy enough to answer.
As of this writing, the TIME poll has 1,948,654 votes. Each vote requires a separate visit, so that’s close to 2 million visits. Even if you account for the fact that number of unique visitors is certainly much lower because of spamming, that’s still an insane amount of traffic and ad revenue for a “story” that probably took an intern five minutes to set up.
In preparation for this column, I reached out to Mediaite’s Managing Editor Jon Nicosia and asked what our own motivation for putting up a post-debate poll was, offering several possibilities. Was it a) traffic, b) traffic, or perhaps c) traffic? “Yes,” he responded.
This stuff is so dumb…
Yes, except the scientific one at the end.
This stupidity MUST end…

Good for Obama…
The scenes in and around the Heflin-Torbert Judicial Building Wednesday could serve as Roy Moore’s public career in miniature.
Within the Alabama Supreme Court chambers, Moore and his attorneys Wednesday arguing the meaning of the U.S. Constitution, especially in relation to the court system, while his opponents contended that Moore’s actions on same-sex marriage violated that document.
On the court steps outside, the Alabama Chief Justice drew two groups with different views of Moore: one cheering him as a defender of their religious values; the other seeing Moore as someone standing in the way of hard-won civil rights.
It all stemmed from a trial with the possibility of ending Moore’s career on the bench. Facing accusations that a Jan. 6 order on same-sex marriage meant to block U.S. Supreme Court rulings making it constitutional, Moore took the stand in the Alabama Supreme Court chambers Wednesday morning, testifying that his intention was not defiance, but guidance to probate judges about a separate same-sex marriage case in the Alabama Supreme court.
“Whether it’s this issue or any other issue, I don’t encourage anyone to defy a federal or state court order,” Moore said near the end of his 90 minutes of testimony in his ethics trial.
Attorneys for the Judicial Inquiry Commission didn’t see it that way. The JIC charged Moore May 6 with six counts of violating the state’s Canon of Judicial Ethics, including those requiring judges to be impartial and follow clear law.
What a difference an election cycle makes, no one has even addressed this point…
Conservatism is dead and I think we just accept it.
