Just STFU, MoveOn.org.

I mean really. Am I seriously supposed to care that 70% of an unspecified number of people in your address book prefer Obama over Clinton? I got the poll too, but there wasn’t a little check box for Edwards or Kucinich – or even one for Gravel who, last I checked, is still a Dem and is still in the race – so I trashed your email without voting. And now I’m supposed to give two shits that the suckers who did respond like Obama? Meh.

And shame on the msm, what with their misleading headlines and hack reporting:

Powerful Political Action Group Backs Barack
Moveon.org’s 3.2 Million Members Vote Obama

Try again. While 3.2 million people might belong to MoveOn.org’s email list, only a fraction of those – hundreds of thousands, according to MoveOn.org – actually cared enough to vote. Of those, 70.4% voted to endorse Obama, while 29.6% went for Clinton.

So no, “Moveon.org’s 3.2 Million Members did not all Vote Obama.” A few hundred thousand people just like me (i.e., regular schlubs) voted for him – and most members did not even bother to reply to such a stoopoid poll in the first place.

I pity the fool who’s swayed by such a non-issue. Do your own f’in research.
