Last Post For Like, Whatever

Bravo Romeo Delta

Really, I mean it. I won't post again until next time. But this bit tickled me too much to pass by.

This guy at Burnt Orange Report (who, incidentally, appeared, at least to this cursory glance, to do a fairly even-handed - or at least rationally debatable - liveblog of the debate). Had a later post-debate post here in which we see the two following entries (with a bit of annotation).

First bit:

9:56: Ok folks. This dkos diary has all the polls we should vote in. You know the drill. Vote for John-John

The post to Kos gives some 56 media instant polling links (before we get to the state-by-state breakdown). Later the empire of Markos "Screw 'Em" Zuniga, then posts other reaction related linkagry here. Don't get exercised about this bit, though - nobody takes internet polling seriously, and it's an election year. What amused me was the latter comment at Burnt Orange here:

10:47: Anyone have any snap poll numbers?

CBS gives Edwards the edge:

A CBS News poll of 169 uncommitted voters found that 41 percent said Edwards won the debate, versus 29 percent who said Cheney won. Thirty percent said it was a tie.

Of course, the wingnuts will dismiss it as liberal BS. I mean, obviously, Dan Rather's behind it...

I'm not sayin'... I'm just sayin'...

Seriously though, it has to be at least worth a grin.

If nothing else, the Burnt Orange Report personally seemed to call the debate itself a tie, with a marginal possibility of a narrow Edwards win.

Who listens to KOS? The man is a moron and most people don't pay any attention to him and I certainly will not waste my time going to his site for any reason!
