GOP consultant Adam Problesky confessed publicly to something I’m sure Republicans do all the time.
Adam confessed in this post on the Flash Report.
He admits to going to the OC Democratic Party website to cast a vote for Rep. Dennis Kucinich, thinking he’d be one of a few votes at most.Ã‚Â Then Adam is appalled to see Kucinich leading the voting with 60 percent of the vote.
A reasonable person wouldn’t put too much stock in an unmonitored online vote or poll on the 2008 presidential race 21 months away.Ã‚Â But Adam does.Ã‚Â He writes:
I was embarrassed for my local rival party when I saw that my shill vote for Kucinich was joined with hundreds of others. No political professional considers Kucinich to be a real candidate for anything other than perhaps re-election and certainly a good shampoo and hair cut. (look in the mirror ;))Ã‚Â Yet it seems that the Dems in OC are excited about his presidential prospects.Ã‚Â Are they that out of touch?Ã‚Â The answer is yes.Ã‚Â The Democratic Party in Orange County is out of touch with not just the everyday American, but certainly the average Democrat voters in their own back yard.
So, let’s review here.Ã‚Â Adam goes to the OC Democratic Party web site with a can of spray paint to skew an online poll as a joke.Ã‚Â When he discovers that the subject of his ridicule is really the prom queen, he’s appalled that a prettier girl didn’t win. And he uses this non-scientific poll to spraypaint the host’s party anyway.
Here’s some news for you Adam.Ã‚Â The Democratic Party in OC is far more in touch with”everyday Americans” than your party is.Ã‚Â Everyday Americans favor Democratic positions on the War in Iraq, the Economy, Healthcare, Corruption in Congress, Minimum Wage, Roe V.Wade and other issues of the day.Ã‚Â President Bush has a 60 percent disapproval rate and more than 80 percent of Americans (and a majority of those in the armed services) don’t approve of the coming Surge in Iraq.
The OC DP is very organized this year.Ã‚Â Sure, you’ll win your share of races but it won’t be easy.
But I’m really grateful to know that Adam, a professional political researcher, would take the time to attempt to skew results of a fun poll hosted on the OC DP site.Ã‚Â
I’ll betÃ‚Â he does all those online Fox News polls too.
