The Same Old Song And Dance

This past Monday, CBS, otherwise known as See? BS!, Al-Jazeera West,
and the Corrupt Broadcasting System, proved once again that it is
nothing but a shameless propaganda tool of the Democrat party, by
releasing the results of a poll it rigged... uh... conducted recently
showing that President Bush's popularity rating has plummeted to an
all-time low of 34 percent.

Of course, when one looks at the internals of the poll, one sees that,
of the 1018 people who responded to it, only 28 percent were
Republicans. 38 percent, however, were Democrats (big surprise there),
and the remaining 34 percent were described as Independents.

Now, to begin with I have a problem with any political poll that
doesn't identify the ideological leanings of over a third of its
participants. The word Independent doesn't tell me anything about a
person, other than he or she is not registered with either of the two
main parties. For all I know, the vast majority of the "Independents"
who took this poll are mind-numbed Communists. Unless it can be shown
that this 34 percent is comprised of an equal number of left-wingers
and right-wingers, I have to assume that it's made up mostly of
leftists, since the people conducting the poll are leftists, and
they've already picked nearly a hundred more Democrats to poll than
Republicans.

I don't know about you, but I've seen gimpy cats at the vet's office
that had a better
chance of not being fixed than this poll, that is, if an actual poll
was even conducted in this case. After all, why should I believe that
the these poll numbers are anything other than a figment of some CBS
employee's imagination? I mean, am I supposed to just ignore the fact
that this company perpetrated one of the most outrageous journalistic
frauds in American history against the subject of this very poll only
weeks before the last election?

What makes the management of CBS think that anyone other than a bunch
of Bush-bashing lunatics would be willing to take anything they say
seriously anymore? Maybe if they did something every once in a while to
show that they're willing to give conservatives a little credit for the
good things they do, I could begin to consider that perhaps they're not
all neo-socialist pinheads.

Unfortunately, that is not the case. They are clearly every bit as
contemptuous of the right as they've always been, and this latest poll
is just one more example of how incapable they are of being responsible
news reporters. I don't know what these folks think they're going to
gain by continuing to behave in such a blatantly biased manner, but if
it's their credibility they're trying to resuscitate, I'm afraid that
beating it with a stupid-stick isn't going to bring it back from the
dead.

Oh sure, there may still be some non-liberals in this country who
actually think CBS can be trusted, but I am not one of them, and I'll
believe Bush's approval numbers are at 34 percent when Dan Rather and
Walter Cronkite admit they're pompous, left-wing jackasses who never
had any business calling themselves respectable newsmen.

And that's the way it is, Thursday, March 2, 2006.
