    You'd probably need to get ACORN involved in order to generate the 1.5 million votes needed to "win".

    That aside, you do realize this is over a month old, right? Since then BO has interviewed with Fox, etc., thus effectively ending the spat, at least for now.

    Wow, go to the well much?

    It's like a reflex action.

    A) GOP feels minute critical breeze.

    B) Immediately raise spectre of ACORN.

    C) Repeat as needed until original topic has been buried.

    They need all the handicaps they can get, because us "libtards" can always point to Bush & Cheney. :biggrin:

    Sheeesh, it was sarcasm. I should have known the bitterly partisan drama queens would be lying in wait. :rolleyes:

    Sarcasm, and the acknowledge of it, works both ways.
    Perhaps the smiley could have been a clue. :wink:

    As a card-carrying bitterly partisan drama queen, I've been too busy laughing at Birthers and battling against the Health Insurance Disinformation Machine too have any extra time for "lying in wait". But I do take time-out for a momentary rail against random instances of Acorn-Scapegoating. Because it's just that lame.

    The sad thing is, I'm sure you don't even get as to why this is probably one of the most blissfully ironic statements in this entire thread.

    The US became a world power unmatched in history without Fox. Since Fox News opened shop it's all been downhill. You do the math.

    Well then, I'll make every effort to be more "liberal" in my use of smileys to ensure maximum clarity. You're just too cute, VB. Terribly misguided, but adorable nonetheless. :tongue:

    Lucky for me, the desire to place tongues in or on certain people's nether regions doesn't require much guidance. We can work on the rest later. ;)

    It's funny that it was such a one-sided vote, especially given NPR hosting it.

    Someone once said something about more liberals using internet-based news sites and that was why Fox News was number one in the ratings - because the libs were on their computers getting the news.

    So where all of the internet-savvy libs on this one?

    Or maybe (GASP!) more people actually do think Fox is Fair and Balanced!

    You rang?
    Trust me, Mary... you're not that clever. Just call me out next time if you got a pair. :rolleyes:

    Sorry, dear... one vote on a poll doesn't discredit years upon years of internet statistics. You can stop your self masturbatory speculation. In fact, here... take a look at the most current statistics: Top 15 Most Popular News Websites

    Seriously... are you THAT desperate to see a Republican majority to even suggest that this one poll means a complete reversal on a trend that has been going since the commercialization of the internet? Do your research and use some common sense before opening your hole next time, OK?

    Next subject, please. :rolleyes:

    Or maybe (GASP!) NPR isn't the Liberal safe-haven you idiots have been told it is by "fair and balanced" Fox News! :eek:

    Or maybe (GASP!) NPR's readers and listeners believe in Freedom of the Press and Freedom of Speech and don't care that Fox News is about as far from actual news as one can get.

    Or maybe (GASP!) I just shattered your worldview.

    But probably not, because you seem about as brain-washed as they get.

    You do know that a few NPR personnel are contributors at FOX, right? Many of them appear nightly on roundtable discussions regarding the issues of the day. Mara Liasson and Juan Williams, most notably but there are a couple of others. you see their articles on the FOX website all the time too.
