    For such a 'nice guy' it seems he's channeling the Clinton campaign:

    The Clinton campaign? I'd say the world champion of push pollers was Bush, but there ya go.

    the Rove inspired push polling in South Carolina against McCain suggesting he had fathered a black child is legendary. Do you really need a link for that?

    why would I link something that's common knowledge? the bush campaign killed mccain in the carolinas with their lovely little push poll asking if people's opinion of mccain would change if they knew he had an illegitimate black daughter.

    or are you just funnin' me?

    Certainly possible, but Hillary's campaign regarding Obama's drug use and kindergarten aspirations are so much more recent.

    those were comments by Shaheen's husband...not push polling, to my knowledge.

    LOL

    Republicans have perfected the art of push polling for years...and NOW they're crying like little babies about it? Where was the outrage last month?


    a better case of faux outrage, there's never been. :lol:
