I’ve been involved in politics for years and years, and I had no idea that polls could be “bended.”
Ace Franklin blogger Greg Kowalski who has never met a big tax or spending plan he didn’t love to death because, after all, he doesn’t have to pay for it, penned another one of his gems without utilizing spell check. This time, sly ol’ Greg was writing about tornado sirens. He wants them installed in Franklin even though there are many solid reasons not to. And oh, yes, Greg loves to spend everybody else’s money.
Let’s see what the
“By the way, the Franklin Today poll on the sirens is pretty close. 47% of those who voted said YES for sirens, 53% said NO. Given the notion that polls can be bended depending on which side is more passionate, I'd give the sway at least 2-3%, leaving the poll at 50-50. No surprise there for me.”
I challenge our tax and spend liberal to:
1) Define “bended”
2) Define how polls can be “bended”
3) Find “bended” in a dictionary
4) Explain how a poll that has a percentage margin of 6 points is really a dead even poll.
I generally don’t write about Greg. His ineptness and political naivete is extremely obvious, and every blogger makes a typo now and then. Greg…..he thrives on butchering the English language. This one was a gift.
Your public school dollars at work.
